According to a recent news report, more and more women are choosing to go under the plastic surgeon’s knife, following pregnancy. This trend is called a Mommy Makeover which usually includes a tummy tuck, breast lift or breast augmentation, and sometimes liposuction, performed at the same time.
Many patients prefer this over having individual separate procedures, which can increase due to anesthesia costs and operatory fees.
However, for the woman, the results can be life changing. Getting their pre-birth body back is a life changing event and has proven to be more satisfying to the patient than having a single procedure alone.
The only consideration a woman should make prior to having a mommy makeover, after child-birth, is to be sure that they are finished having children as a repeat pregnancy can ruin their results. Typically, a mommy makeover will not prevent a woman from getting pregnant again or even breast feeding their baby.
