You’ve also seen a lot of television “mommy makeovers” featuring some frumpy woman in sweat pants and bad hair who was a former beauty queen before she had children and lost the will to care. The talk show team gets a hold of her, cleans the crust out of her eyes, takes her shopping at Nordstrom and works some magic on her mop with some celebrity hairstylist. As a surprising revelation, the main revelation reveals her true beauty (c’mon this is TV, they don’t choose very ugly people) and everybody cries.

This is what I want to call a makeover of a lower-case mommy. It is enjoyable. It’s adorable. But that mom’s still going to be back in her sweats before carpooling tomorrow. When I and other plastic surgeons talk about a Mommy Makeover, we’re talking about an upper-case, life-changing, genuinely satisfying experience that utilizes different procedures to give a woman her body back after having children, from breast augmentation to liposuction to a breast lift to a tummy tuck or any combination thereof.
Via diet and exercise, can I get my pre-pregnancy shape back?
Everybody and every body is special, so I don’t know if the results you want will be achieved by your diet and exercise efforts. But you definitely should try! As a plastic surgeon in the San Francisco Bay Area, I advise my patients to wait at least 6 months before performing some form of plastic surgery, and preferably longer after having a baby. Giving your body a chance to adapt to tactics that are less invasive. And if you do plan to go ahead with a Mommy Makeover, due to your fitness level, your surgical outcomes and recovery would be even better.
All the causes that cause the skin to stretch and sag are lactation, breastfeeding and a pregnant stomach. Many of these issues can be resolved by a Mommy Makeover. By a breast lift, sagging breasts can be taken back to their perfect position on your chest, and the amount lost after the baby can be replaced with breast implants. Simple liposuction will do the trick if your stomach has any fatty areas but has maintained tight skin. But if your muscles during pregnancy have been greatly split or you have too much loose skin, you may need a tummy tuck to strengthen the muscles of your rectus abdominis (six pack muscles). The muscles of the right and left rectus abdominis are sutured together during your tummy tuck procedure, resulting in bringing the muscles back into their original positions.
