What's a Mommy Makeover and Why Should You Consider It?

Pregnancy is a time when the body undergoes significant changes, some of which can come as a surprise. While physical changes are perfectly normal, they don’t necessarily vanish after giving birth. Many women desire to restore their pre-baby body, and that’s where a mommy makeover can help.

More than 60% of moms seek cosmetic treatments, such as mommy makeovers, to reclaim their pre-pregnancy figures. At Rejuvenate Plastic Surgery in San Diego, board-certified plastic surgeon Rishi Jindal, MD, helps patients feel good in their skin by providing a full range of plastic surgery procedures, including mommy makeovers.

What is a mommy makeover?

Pregnancy can leave you with stretched abdominal skin, areas of stubborn and unwanted fat, and a separation of the abdominal muscles. Breast changes are also common, varying from sagging breasts to an undesirable change in size or shape.

A mommy makeover can combine a number of procedures to help women restore their pre-baby figures. First, Dr. Jindal discusses your concerns, and then he goes over your options.

What’s included in a mommy makeover?

A major advantage of the mommy makeover is that it’s highly individualized and can combine multiple procedures into one surgery. Dr. Jindal can customize your mommy makeover based on your needs. A mommy makeover may include, but isn’t limited to:

  • Breast augmentation, lift, or reduction
  • Tummy tuck
  • Body contouring
  • Vaginal rejuvenation
  • Brazilian butt lift

Who’s an ideal candidate for a mommy makeover?

You are a good candidate for a mommy makeover if you are in good overall health and not currently dealing with any major medical problems. Ideal candidates for a mommy makeover are also at a stable weight, since significant weight fluctuations after surgery can affect the results.

Keep in mind that future pregnancies can alter results, so it is recommended to seek a mommy makeover once you have finished having kids. Additionally, being a nonsmoker or being willing to quit before and after surgery is crucial, as smoking interferes with healing. 

Feel like yourself again

Pregnancy is challenging, and you shouldn’t lose yourself or your positive self-image in the process. Many women say that their body feels foreign after having a baby.

If your figure doesn’t reflect the one you had before having a baby, your confidence might take a major hit. A skillful mommy makeover can be life-changing. You can enjoy a flatter stomach, an improved body contour, and a boost in self-esteem.

Many women have turned to Dr. Jindal to restore their pre-baby figures because he’s dedicated to helping moms feel beautiful and like themselves again. To learn more about a mommy makeover, book an appointment online or over the phone with Rejuvenate Plastic Surgery today.
