Las Vegas mommy makeoverA mommy makeover is an effective solution to help you restore your body to its pre-pregnancy figure. If you're considering a mommy makeover, you may be wondering how long you should wait after giving birth before undergoing this life-changing procedure. Unfortunately, there's no black-and-white answer to this question. The right time for you will be based on you unique personal circumstances.

That being said, there are certain factors that you should evaluate when deciding if you're ready to get a mommy makeover. These include:

  • How long it takes you to recover from childbirth
  • How you're impacted by the rigors of motherhood
  • Future family plans

After giving birth, your body will need some time to recover from the transformations that occur throughout your pregnancy. Your breasts and abdomen will gradually contract back towards your pre-pregnancy state for the first few months after childbirth. You'll want to give your body time to complete this transformation in order for Dr. Brown to devise a customized mommy makeover plan that will address your unique needs and goals.

It's also important to understand that if you choose to breastfeed, your breasts will remain enlarged during this time. Therefore, you'll need to wait until your child is no longer breastfeeding to undergo the procedure.

While you may want to undergo your mommy makeover as soon as possible, you should also consider how this will impact your ability to handle raising a baby. Taking care of a very young child can be physically demanding. You may find that it will be hard to physically meet the needs of your baby while you're recovering from surgery. For this reason, you may want to wait until your child is a little older before undergoing the procedure.

Finally, it's important to consider future family plans when deciding on the timing of your mommy makeover. If you're planning on having more children, you'll want to wait to undergo the procedure since future pregnancies can potentially have a negative impact on your results. In order to achieve beautiful mommy makeover results that will last for years to come, it's best to wait until you're done having children.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Brown will discuss these factors with you as well as any other questions you may have regarding the right time to undergo your mommy makeover. As a mother of four children, Dr. Brown understands the issues you need to consider when making this decision, and she will make sure the timing is right before you undergo your procedure.
