mommy makeover houstonIf you’re considering getting a mommy makeover by Houston plastic surgeons Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig, you may be wondering if a past or future C-section or hysterectomy will affect your surgery’s aesthetic results. After all, you don’t want to invest in this body rejuvenation procedure if your surgical past will affect your tummy tuck results, or if future surgeries may alter your results, too. Read on to learn how past and future abdominal surgeries can affect a mommy makeover.

Getting a Mommy Makeover When You’ve Had a Previous C-Section

Many Houston mothers are thrilled to hear that even though they’ve had a C-section in the past, they’re still candidates for a mommy makeover. In fact, depending on the location and appearance of your C-section scar, the tummy tuck incision involved in a mommy makeover may be able to remove it altogether, providing you with one single, hip to hip scar that is easily hidden by your bikini line.

Having a C-Section After Having a Mommy Makeover

One of the conditions that Houston plastic surgeons Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig want their mommy makeover candidates to meet is being sure they are done having children and having a birth control plan in place to prevent future pregnancies. This is because future pregnancies and C-sections can dramatically alter, or even completely undo your mommy makeover results. Because Dr. Fusi and Dr. Craig want your mommy makeover body rejuvenation results to be long lasting, they discourage future pregnancies or C-section deliveries after a mommy makeover.

Getting a Mommy Makeover When You’ve Had a Previous Hysterectomy

If you’ve had your uterus removed in the past, you’ll be happy to hear that this procedure makes your tummy tuck easier because the uterus occupies abdominal space. If the uterus isn’t present, then it’s simpler for Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig to tighten up your abdomen and make it as flat as possible.

Having a Hysterectomy After a Mommy Makeover

We know that you cannot predict future medical issues. But if you have a family history of hysterectomies or if you are aware that one in your imminent future, for any reason, it is not advisable to proceed with your mommy makeover until after you have gone through the procedure and the appropriate healing process.

Talking to Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig About Your Future Needs

As you can see, while previous abdominal procedures won’t negatively impact a tummy tuck, future ones can. This is why it’s so important that you are certain you are done having children before you proceed with a mommy makeover, and why it’s important to talk to your OBGYN if you have an existing gynecological condition or family history which may necessitate a hysterectomy in the future. It’s also another example of why it’s crucial to be honest with Dr. Fusi & Dr. Craig during your initial appointment, so they can determine if you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck.
