Cosmetic Procedures to Consider After Pregnancy
Pregnancy is truly a beautiful thing. While children can bring so much joy into our lives, they can also wreak havoc on our pre-baby bodies, leaving loose and sagging skin in their wake. While some women choose to accept this as their new normal, if your post-baby body does not make you feel your best, we are here to help. Here are two cosmetic procedures to consider after pregnancy:
In many cases, women notice that their breasts appear deflated and saggy after having children and breastfeeding. Fortunately, breast augmentation can help restore the volume that you have lost, so that you can regain confidence in your skin. Typically, we recommend that women wait three to six months after they’ve stopped breastfeeding, before undergoing surgery. This allows enough time for the breasts to reach their post-baby shape, which will allow the surgeon to better address your concerns.
Another popular post-pregnancy procedure is the tummy tuck, or, as we perform it at Pollack Plastic Surgery, the Tummy Tuck 2.0. Although you may wish to address the sagging skin and lax abdominal muscles as soon as possible, once again, we recommend waiting at least six months after you have given birth. Or, if you are breastfeeding, three to six months after you finish. This allows the abdominal tissues to heal from the intense stretching that took place while pregnant and will provide enough time for the pregnancy hormones to become inactive.
Post-Pregnancy Surgery Can Help
If your new mom body makes you feel less attractive than you felt before, breast augmentation and a tummy tuck can help. Although you will need to wait the appropriate amount of time to ensure a safe procedure for yourself and for the baby, you should know that both of these options are worth the wait. And if you determine that there are more problem areas to address, a mommy makeover can incorporate multiple surgeries into one simple procedure.
