Can I Have More Kids After My Mommy Makeover?
While motherhood can be one of the most rewarding experiences of a Houston woman’s life, pregnancy – and especially multiple pregnancies – can leave her body in an almost unrecognizable state. From weight gain, sagging breasts, separated abdominal muscles, loose belly skin, and stretch marks galore, many Houston women are unhappy with their post-baby bodies. And unfortunately, some Houston women can’t regain their pre-baby body no matter how hard they diet and exercise.
For these reasons, some Houston women choose to have a mommy makeover, a series of plastic surgery procedures designed to help a postpartum woman reclaim her pre-pregnancy body. Often combining multiple procedures including a breast lift, a breast augmentation, a tummy tuck and sometimes even liposuction, the goal of a mommy makeover is to re-sculpt and reshape a mother’s body into its previous state. Many Houston women are excited to hear that there is a plastic surgery that can help them regain their pre-pregnancy bodies. But some wonder, “Can I have more kids after having a mommy makeover?” Read on as Houston mommy makeover plastic surgeons Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig answer this common question.
Wait to get a Mommy Makeover Until You Are Done Having Children
With years of plastic surgery experience, Yale trained Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig always recommend that their Houston mommy makeover patients wait to have the procedure performed until they are done having children. While it’s completely safe to get a mommy makeover and the series of procedures will have no bearing on yours or you child’s health if you do in fact become pregnant after getting a mommy makeover, a subsequent pregnancy after the procedure makes you highly likely to lose your aesthetic results. As board certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig are interested in providing you with the longest lasting results as possible, which is why they recommend that Houston women wait to have a mommy makeover until they are done having children.
What Else Should I Think About Before Having a Mommy Makeover?
Before you move forward with a mommy makeover in Houston, you should also:
- Reach your goal weight, as gaining or losing a significant amount of weight after your surgery may negatively impact your results;
- Be in good overall health and cleared by your primary care physician for elective, cosmetic surgery;
- Have realistic goals for your mommy makeover; and
- Be in good psychological health.
Preparing for Your Mommy Makeover
If you’re a Houston woman who is done having children, meets the prerequisites listed above and is ready to reclaim your pre-pregnancy body, then there’s no time like now to start preparing for a mommy makeover. While most of these types of procedures include a tummy tuck, breast lift, and breast augmentation, Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig can customize your mommy makeover to provide you with a unique blend of surgeries to meet your desired needs.
