Is a Mommy Makeover Procedure Right for You

The beginning of the adventure of motherhood is a very transformative experience. It brings the immeasurable happiness and fulfillment that life could ever afford, yet can also leave some changes lasting to your body. These changes, like the body size, shape, and skin condition are considered to have negative influences—like body dissatisfaction and low self-esteem—thus fueling a longing for the pre-pregnancy body. Of course, diet and exercise can help the body get back to its pre-pregnancy state, but it’s not in all cases.

Enter the concept of a makeover for moms. It involves a series of aesthetic surgeries designed to correct all the physical changes that both pregnancy and delivery leave behind. But how is a woman to know if that is the best way for her? 

The following article is an attempt to throw some light on what a mommy makeover involves, and it can help you decide whether or not you should go for it.

What is a Mommy Makeover? 

A mommy makeover is a surgical procedure. It involves a tailored set of surgeries designed to address your unique concerns. The overall goal is to restore your body to its pre-pregnancy appearance or even enhance it according to your desires.

So, is a mommy makeover right for you? Well, as with any other medical procedure, this needs to be well thought out in advance. The best candidates are healthy, have a good physical condition, at a stable weight, and most importantly, have a realistic expectations of results. The last part is important because, while a mommy makeover can enhance your appearance and build confidence, it cannot “perfect your body” or resolve deep-rooted body image issues.

So, before making any decisions, consult with a qualified plastic surgeon. They can provide you with detailed information about the procedure and help to get ready, finally determining whether you are a candidate for the surgery or not. For example, they will discuss timing with you. 

Usually, moms are advised to wait until they are sure that they are done with childbearing. The mom also has to have fully recovered from their last child before proceeding with the mommy makeover. 

Preparing for Your Procedure

Once you’ve decided that a mommy makeover is appropriate for you, the next thing is to prepare. This differs for each person, but mostly includes stopping smoking, eating healthy foods, and getting organized with any help that you may require while recovering. Your surgeon will devise a comprehensive plan that will ensure you are well prepared for the surgery and the period of recovery.


A mommy makeover can be a drastic decision that returns many women to the confidence and comfort of their bodies. This, however, is not a decision to be taken lightly. Always keep in mind your health, your goal, and the timing of the surgery. Consult a professional, and with him or her, make an informed decision that would be the best for you. Always remember the goal: to feel like the best version of you, for you.
