Three Signs You’re a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover
Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can all lead to dramatic changes in a mother’s body, including unwanted fat deposits, sagging breasts, and changes in stomach contours. Fortunately, these physical changes can be reversed through breast enhancements, liposuction, body contouring, and a tummy tuck, which together are known as a mommy makeover. Here are three signs you’re a good candidate.
You’re Finished Having Children
Mommy makeovers are specifically designed to remedy the physical changes that come with carrying, birthing, and breastfeeding children. Getting pregnant and giving birth again after having a mommy makeover will reverse many of the procedures’ benefits, so it’s essential to be entirely sure that you are finished having kids before you even consider surgery. This decision is a very personal and long-term one, so remember to take your time and consider many future possibilities.
You’re in Good Overall Health
All plastic surgery procedures require that the patient is in good overall health, including mommy makeovers. During your initial consultation, Dr. Kinsley will determine if you’re a good candidate for a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and other mommy makeover procedures. You will only be eligible if you have no underlying health problems, refrain from smoking, and maintain ideal body weight.
You Have Positive, Realistic Expectations
Like having children, getting plastic surgery will lead to dramatic changes in your physical appearance. It’s important to go into a mommy makeover with realistic expectations about your possible results, as well as a positive outlook about your overall body image and self-esteem. And while our team will take steps to maximize your comfort and minimize your downtime, you should also be prepared to meet the requirements of your post-surgery recovery.
