Although many women desire a slim, curvaceous figure, it can be very difficult to maintain that type of body. Things like pregnancy, weight changes, medical conditions, and the natural effects of aging can all cause your figure to change in ways that you don't particularly like. While diet and exercise alone may not be enough to restore your toned, youthful appearance, a mommy makeover could be exactly the solution you're looking for.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a series of cosmetic procedures that are custom-tailored to help women restore their youthful figures. Most commonly, mommy makeovers are performed on women who have recently gone through pregnancy, which is where the treatment gets its name. Some of the procedures most commonly included in a mommy makeover are:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Tummy tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Vaginal rejuvenation

What Makes a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Generally speaking, any woman who is interested in restoring their youthful figure after experiencing major bodily changes could potentially be a good candidate for a mommy makeover. However, to be an ideal candidate for the treatment, you should meet the following requirements:

  • Be in Good Overall Health - Typically, a mommy makeover will include one or more surgical procedures. To minimize the risk of complications during these surgeries, it's important that you're in generally good physical health and free of any serious medical conditions.
  • Have Tried Dieting and Exercise - If your figure has undergone major changes, the first steps should almost always be working to get back in shape naturally. For one thing, mommy makeover procedures are ideal for women who are healthy and near their ideal body weight. Additionally, a mommy makeover is not a weight loss procedure, and it will provide the best results if you've already established a healthy diet and exercise routine.
  • Have No Immediate Plans to Get Pregnant - Although it's entirely safe to get pregnant after a mommy makeover, it's typically not a good idea if you want to maintain the results of your surgeries. Unfortunately, going through pregnancy after a mommy makeover will likely undo some or all of the improvements made during the treatment.
  • Gave Birth at Least 6 Months Ago - To be a good candidate for a mommy makeover, it's important that it has been at least six months since you last gave birth. Having a child can be extremely hard on your body, and it's imperative that you give yourself plenty of time to heal before undergoing the procedures included in a mommy makeover.
  • Have Realistic Expectations - Whenever you're undergoing a major cosmetic treatment like a mommy makeover, it's important to have realistic expectations. Although Dr. Zenn and his team will go above and beyond to provide you with wonderful results, there can never be a guarantee that the final results will be absolute perfection. However, as long as you enter the process with a reasonable outlook, you'll most likely be thrilled with the outcome of the treatment

Do You Have to Be a Mom to Have a Mommy Makeover?

One of the most common misconceptions about mommy makeovers is that they can only be performed on mothers. In reality, this is not the case. Although many mommy makeover patients are indeed mothers, it is not a requirement. In addition to pregnancy, women's figures can change for many reasons, including weight gain, aging, and certain medical issues.
