When is the Best Time for a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a treatment plan that has helped countless women restore their body contours and confidence after the stressors of having children. Tailored to each person’s individual concerns, a Mommy Makeover consists of multiple cosmetic procedures that are customized to address unwanted changes in the body resulting from pregnancy and nursing. While we understand that most patients want to reclaim their pre-baby body as fast as possible, a little patience after giving birth can go a long way in allowing you to achieve stunning Mommy Makeover results.

Generally speaking, it’s recommended to wait at least six months to one year after giving birth before undergoing a Mommy Makeover. As stated previously, pregnancy and nursing can take an enormous toll on the body. Even after having a baby, the body often fluctuates for months before achieving enough stability to undergo major surgery. For this reason, Dr. John Ayala recommends consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon to find out the safest and most effective time to pursue a Mommy Makeover according to your needs.

That said, this timeframe may be prolonged for patients who still plan on having more children in the future. While body plastic surgery should have no effect on your ability to grow your family, getting pregnant after a Mommy Makeover can compromise your results, as well as recreate the very concerns you sought to treat in the first place. Dr. Ayala is a highly experienced plastic surgeon who can speak with you in-depth about your goals and help you navigate the best approach to turn those desires into a reality.
