Mommy Makeover – The Most Common Plastic Surgeries for New Moms

Now that you’ve finally got your bundle of joy in your arms and you can start enjoying parenthood, it’s also time you get your life back on track.

With the new baby and new life routine, this can get pretty hard. You don’t have time work out, think of healthy diet, and sleep as much as you’d initially want, that is – as much as your body would need to stay healthy and upbeat… and, let’s be honest – our bodies don’t look the same post pregnancy. Apart from stretch marks and extra weight that piled up, so many things changed that you at times can’t even recognize your own body. Luckily, we can now turn to plastic surgery for solutions!

Ideal Candidates

I am sure you’ve given your best to lose weight and have probably succeeded. Yet, if you are bothered by those stubborn pockets of fat and sagging skin that simply won’t go, you are a good candidate to undergo a cosmetic procedure.

You should know that a cosmetic procedure isn’t something that just recent moms do. There are women who have been waiting for years, trying to get rid of loose skin and extra belly and thigh fat naturally, yet their body just didn’t want to listen. In both cases, plastic surgery was an absolute success.

Undergoing a makeover is suitable for both women who gave birth naturally and those who underwent a C-section. Usually, scarring or sagging skin in the belly area is a result of a caesarian, and it’s really hard, in some cases even impossible to get them removed naturally by exercising and proper diet. This can get pretty frustrating for a woman, especially women that have always had a slim figure. This is why undergoing a plastic surgery is probably your best choice. Further, if you have suffered a hernia around your naval you can have it repaired at the same time that cosmetic surgery is done. A hernia is common in women that have given birth to twins or triplets.

Yet another aspect of getting cosmetic surgery is your age and health. It is advised you are at least 18 years old and in good health. Also, you should not be planning to have any more children. Still, even if you do have any more children, neither you nor the baby will be threatened health-wise. The only “problem” is that the new pregnancy and giving birth may reverse the results of your cosmetic treatment that was previously done.

This is why, most doctors will advise every “new” and young mom to wait a few years before she undergoes any procedures or makeovers.


The moment you start considering a makeover, you should schedule a meeting with your doctor who will inform you of various surgical options and explain in detail what they can and cannot do.

Some women come to the office believing cosmetic surgery works as a magic pill that prevents aging, gaining extra pounds, and reverses the genetic factor when clearly that isn’t the case.

While surgery can help a person reduce the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite, tightening damaged muscle and eliminate excess skin immensely, it is not a weight loss treatment or an anti-aging pill. It also doesn’t have permanent results. For cosmetic surgery to work and have effect on the long run, you need to nourish your body and take care of it. Otherwise, you’ll be just going back and forth, without achieving any permanent results.

Patients who decide to undergo plastic surgery need to know that, even though a doctor is likely to achieve amazing results, there is no guarantee that your body will look exactly as it did pre-baby. While pregnant, women experience massive biochemical and physical changes which contribute to our bodies acting differently post-baby. This is why you should understand that the doctor will give his best to give you the look you envisioned, yet you need to be realistic about your expectations.

You will always be advised not to schedule any appointments straight after you’ve given birth. During hormonal changes, women can suffer various disorders which can cause them to feel insecure, vulnerable and dissatisfied about almost anything surrounding them. If you are a new mom wait for some time to pass before you’ve decided you want to undergo a plastic surgery. It is also very important that all decisions you make are for YOU and not your desire to meet somebody else’s expectations.
