Having a child doesn’t mean you’ll want to abandon cosmetic surgery—and in some cases giving birth might motivate you even more! After all, there’s an entire set of custom surgeries referred to as a “Mommy Makeover” for a reason. But many new mothers wonder if various cosmetic procedures are safe to undergo after childbirth. That’s why we made this quick guide to the most common questions mothers ask us about getting a tummy tuck after pregnancy.
Is it Safe?
This is by far the most common question we get in regards to this procedure, and the short answer is that not only is it safe, but it can also be very beneficial to your health. Aside from the benefits to your body image and confidence, a tummy tuck can alleviate much of the back pain that comes from post-pregnancy.
That said, a good rule of thumb is to wait for at least six months to get a tummy tuck after your pregnancy, and you should always ask your plastic surgeon and primary care physician about other factors that you should keep in mind before you take the plunge.
Is it Effective?
Many people also wonder if they can have a baby after a tummy tuck procedure, if the pregnancy will undo the surgery, or if it’s even safe to give birth after you’ve had the operation. The answer to all of these questions is technically yes, if you’re going to the right plastic surgeon and getting the procedure done the right way. However, for the most beautiful, natural-looking results, we strongly recommend getting a tummy tuck after pregnancy, once you’re done having kids.
Is it Right for Me?
If you’re recovering from childbirth and want a streamlined path back to the naturally slim and youthful body you had before you gave birth, a tummy tuck can be a fantastic option. Not only can it increase your self-confidence, but it can also mitigate some of the possible health complications that can result from pregnancy.
