Should I Finish Having Kids Before Getting a Mommy Makeover in Honolulu?

The “mommy makeover” – an affectionate term for a set of procedures and treatments designed to help women achieve their ideal body type. In years past, the term usually meant some combination of three procedures: breast augmentation and/or lift, tummy tuck, and/or liposuction. Regardless of the procedures you choose, a mommy makeover can help turn back the clock and restore you figure after having children.

Here’s what you can expect:

A tummy tuck/liposuction is an essential component of most mommy makeover procedures. Pregnancies often result in a condition known as “rectus diastasis,” which cannot be corrected with any amount of diet and exercise. The midline rectus abdominis muscles become stretched apart and separate from one another with multiple pregnancies or twins. Honolulu liposuction is one method that doctors use to eliminate stubborn deposits of fat deposits to achieve a flatter, more toned stomach.

Breast augmentation and breast lift surgery are also common staples of the mommy makeover, but future pregnancies or breastfeeding after Honolulu breast implants can significantly compromise the results.

When considering any plastic surgery procedure, but especially a mommy makeover, it is important to decide whether your family is complete or whether additional pregnancies are planned — or possible — at some time in the future. An increasing number of mothers are becoming interested in getting a mommy makeover in Honolulu, but when is the right time to have this combination of procedures?

A mommy makeover is typically recommended to mothers who are hoping to reclaim their pre-pregnancy bodies and who are not planning on having more children. While cosmetic surgery will not affect your health or the health of your baby should you become pregnant again, it may negate the results of your treatment. Pregnancy after a mommy makeover can undo nearly everything (or not much at all, depending on body type).

While there is typically no physical danger if women become pregnant after a mommy makeover, future pregnancies and breastfeeding can alter the volume of their natural breast tissues and ultimately change the appearance of their breasts. While everyone’s body is different, it’s probably best to wait until after you are done having children to plan on getting Honolulu breast implants.

The ideal candidate for a mommy makeover in Honolulu is a woman who preferably has finished having her children and is able to focus attention on herself. In addition to the physical considerations, the ideal candidate should have a good support system in place before undergoing a mommy makeover so she can properly rest during the recovery period.

The origins of my desire to become a doctor are quite comical when you stop to think about. When I was a child I had to get a shot and due to the amount of squirming and shaking I did to avoid the needle, it broke off in my skin.
