A woman’s body changes significantly during pregnancy. A Mommy Makeover can help a woman regain her pre-baby body by combining breast augmentation surgery, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), and liposuction

While these results are intended to last, the stress of motherhood can take a toll on your body, negatively affecting your Mommy Makeover results. A Mommy Makeover is a major cosmetic undertaking that requires significant downtime and can be quite costly. 

To avoid more plastic surgery in the future, follow these steps to keep your Mommy Makeover results long lasting.                    

1. Follow a Proper Diet and Exercise Program 

Proper diet and exercise are crucial to maintaining your Mommy Makeover results. Weight fluctuation can alter your results, and some procedures may need to be redone. For example, weight gain can cause your breasts to swell or sag and your stomach to stretch, altering the results of your breast enhancement surgery or abdominoplasty (if those procedures were done as a part of your Mommy Makeover). 

To prevent this from happening, we suggest following a proper diet and exercise program. Healthy eating practices and regular exercise can keep your body at a healthy weight to avoid any fluctuation. 

Although eating healthy and exercising are some of the best ways to ensure your Mommy Makeover results will be long lasting, you can still have the foods you enjoy. When treating yourself to foods that are considered to be unhealthy, simply enjoy these foods in moderation. 

2. Avoid Smoking 

Not only can smoking cause lung disease and cancer, but it can also significantly harm your outward appearance. A Mommy Makeover provides many women with a younger-looking appearance that they can feel confident about. Unfortunately, smoking significantly changes your teeth, hair, and skin. 

Additionally, smoking can cause skin and breast sagging. All these factors cause you to appear older, providing the opposite effect of a Mommy Makeover. Avoiding nicotine and tobacco can help you maintain the youthful appearance provided by your Mommy Makeover. 

3. Avoid Future Pregnancy 

It is highly recommended only to undergo a Mommy Makeover after you are done having children. As a woman, you can decide how many children you want to have without being concerned about altering your plastic surgery results. 

Pregnancy can reverse your Mommy Makeover results. By waiting until you are done having children, you can ensure that your results will be long lasting. 

Should you get pregnant after your Mommy Makeover, you can feel confident knowing that your previous plastic surgery will not affect or complicate your pregnancy in any way, and repeated or touch-up plastic surgery treatments are always an option.
