A mommy makeover aims to restore a woman’s body shape and appearance after childbirth. Many  women notice changes in their bodies after giving birth. Many areas of the body can be addressed, the most common of which are the breasts, abdomen, waist, genitalia, and buttocks. A mommy makeover is usually performed in a single stage. There are numerous techniques for performing a mommy makeover, and several factors must be considered when determining which techniques are best.


  • When Is the Most Appropriate Time for a Mommy Makeover? The best time to have a mommy makeover is after you have finished having children or one should have a mommy makeover after they have finished breastfeeding their youngest child. Waiting six months after you’ve finished lactation it allows the breasts to stabilise its shape and size, allowing us to perform a precise surgical evaluation. Finally, it is advised that new mothers retain their post-pregnancy weight for at least six months prior to considering for a mommy makeover. This, like the breasts, ensures that your body has stabilised and retrieved from the stress and pressure of pregnancy and delivery before undergoing another major surgery.
  • When Should I Start Exercising? It is better to wait at least six weeks before engaging in any high – intensity or strenuous physical activity. Stitches must be removed, incisions must heal, and muscles must recover from the stress of each procedure. Lifting heavy, vigorous exercising, and swimming must be avoided for at least six weeks for optimal recovery. If our doctors approve, you may resume moderate exercise after a month or so.
  • When are my sutures (stitches) going to be removed? The majority of non-dissolvable stitches are removed within 10 days of your procedure. Other stitches should dissolve and disappear within 6 to 8 weeks. When sutures become noticeable or evident, it is critical not to tamper with or squeeze on them.
