With celebrities seemingly bouncing back from pregnancies in just weeks, strutting the red carpet with their pre-baby bodies already intact, it may be discouraging and stressful when you compare your post-pregnancy body. However, it is important to remember that it typically takes several months for your body to return to its natural form.
In most cases, traditional diet and exercise are not enough to eliminate excess skin and fat deposits on the lower abdomen after birth. Some women may also experience sagging breasts, due to volume loss. A Mommy Makeover in Portland, OR, can address these issues by incorporating a selection of procedures to meet a patient’s individual needs. A tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift, breast reduction or breast augmentation can be done alone or in conjunction with each other to make a mommy makeover.
So, when is the best time to undergo a mommy makeover? Professionals recommend that patients be at their goal weight for at least six months and have stopped breastfeeding for at least six months. It is also advised that patients are finished having children before undergoing a mommy makeover, ensuring that the results are long-lasting.
It is important that patients understand that the surgeries associated with a mommy makeover are not weight loss procedures, and are meant to contour the body. A healthy lifestyle, including a nutrient-rich diet and regular exercise, is the best way to go about weight loss after pregnancy.
