Do You Want Your Body Back After Giving Birth? 

Surgery After PregnancyMany mothers consider plastic surgery after pregnancy. It is no surprise that after carrying a child in your body for 10 months, your body begins to change. The skin might have lost elasticity, stretch marks form, and certain features might have become less perky. Mothers go through a lot internally to nurture their baby to a healthy birth and often times it is shown through their body. It is normal to want to get your pre-baby body back. With the skills plastic surgeons have, they can help you through surgical procedures. Let’s look at the options and get educated about postpartum plastic surgery. 

What is a mommy makeover?

Take some time to embrace all that you went through to support your newborn child. Often times after birth women do not like how their body looks and rushes into working out and losing weight. They forget their body went through a lot to create a human in their body. It is recommended to wait at least six months after giving birth before having any kind of invasive surgery. A mommy makeover is a term used to describe personalized procedures to correct any unwanted changes that occurred during pregnancy. During your consultation with a surgeon, you can discuss common types of procedures to fix your concerns. 

Tummy Tuck 

When carrying a baby in your stomach your skin is expanding for the entire term of the pregnancy. As a result, after birth, you may have excess skin that may not be admirable after the weight loss. Post-pregnancy, women are reluctant to wear anything exposing their stomach because they don’t like how their stomach looks. After birth, women may get loose skin because the excess skin has nowhere to go even after diet and exercise. A tummy tuck may be the solution because it will tighten your skin and abdominal muscles to support your tummy. It will contour the low abs and at the same time, remove excess skin from the area. 

Breast Lift 

Most women who are in their 30s or 40s request a breast lift after giving birth because the breast expands during milk production. This can happen whether you breastfeed your baby or not.  The skin around the breast tissue is expanding to provide milk but as a result, women are left with flatter and saggier breast. This happens when your ligaments are stretched to support a heavier breast. Surgical lifting can help with this issue. During the breast lift procedure, the unwanted extra skin is removed and the breast tissue is reshaped and lifted. 


Your body goes through rapid weight gain and the sudden weight loss after the birth of your newborn child. After pregnancy, your body may have developed stubborn fat. The stubborn fat is hard to eliminate even with a strict diet and workout routine. Mothers will result in liposuction to remove the excess fat tissue. The liposuction procedure includes making a small incision in the skin to suction away the fat surrounding the skin and abdominal wall.


If you are early in your pregnancy and already feel cautious about how you may look after birth, you can start with a healthy diet during pregnancy that is closely monitored by your doctor. Quick tip, breastfeeding can also help you lose additional weight. As with any surgery there comes many risks. There is no need to rush into any surgery after pregnancy. Remember the strength you have provided to carry your child and the imperfections are just signs that shows how much your body has gone through. When your body has recovered, contact our surgical team for a consultation. We look forward to helping you restore your beautiful features.
