How long after a c-section can you have a mummy makeover?
Many women struggle to lose weight and get back in shape after having a baby for many reasons including breastfeeding, lack of sleep, less time to exercise and other limitations that come with looking after a little one. This leads many women to look for alternatives that can help them restore their pre-pregnancy bodies, the most common way being cosmetic solutions like a mummy makeover.
What is a mummy makeover?
For a mummy makeover, a plastic surgeon combines several different surgeries and procedures. Each mummy makeover is tailored and planned to meet your individual needs and goals.
Breast augmentation: Many women may experience breast volume loss after childbirth and breastfeeding. They can restore this lost volume and achieve a more feminine contour through breast augmentation using implants or fat transfer.
Breast lift: Sagging breasts is one of the most common complaints of patients seeking a mummy makeover. A breast lift, as the name suggests, aims at improving the firmness and shape of the breasts.
Tummy tuck: Tummy tuck can address and correct loose, sagging, excess skin on the abdomen, resulting in a smoothly contoured tummy area. In many cases, the surgeon performs liposuction during a tummy tuck to enhance the outcome.
Is a mummy makeover right after a C-section safe?
Surgical safety concerns are common for women considering a mummy makeover after C-section, particularly when a tummy tuck is involved. The good news is that a tummy tuck is safe for most women following childbirth via C-section, but it is important to plan and time the surgery appropriately.
It’s really important not to rush into cosmetic surgery. After giving birth, the body undergoes drastic changes for a few months. The uterus will shrink to its pre-baby size, hormones will start to balance, and most of the weight gained throughout pregnancy will usually reduce with a healthy lifestyle.
You must allow your body to fully heal after pregnancy and childbirth before considering a mummy makeover. If you have had a C-section, you must remember that your body has just been through major surgery and it needs proper time to heal before undergoing any other procedure.
