How Long Does a Mommy Makeover Last?


Each mommy makeover procedure is different from the next, from the number of treatments involved, to how extensive each may be for the individual. At the end of the day, it is a process that is meant to reverse the effects of childbirth and help you achieve the overall look you want. No matter what level of involvement your procedures take, the results will last a long time. Below, we’ll discuss a few factors to consider both before and after you decide to have a mommy makeover done.

Timing Is Important

Many of our patients see the effects that pregnancy has had on their bodies and want to have a mommy makeover as quickly as possible. However, this is not the best for your body which is still recovering from giving birth. This is also a time when drastic weight fluctuation is in play, which is best to let settle before considering liposuction or a tummy tuck.

Rushing into a mommy makeover procedure before letting these factors settle can result in needing another procedure soon after the first. Also, Dr. Corey strongly recommends being done with having children to undergo the Mommy Makeover. None of these procedures will hinder your ability to get pregnant, but getting pregnant will hinder any results achieved by a mommy makeover.

Consider Which Procedures You’re Having Done

Mommy makeovers generally involve liposuction, a tummy tuck, and some corrective breast surgery, meaning either a Lift and/or implants. The different procedures have various lifespans for how long the results will last. This also depends on how you care for and treat your body and your dieting habits. General numbers to know are that breast implants and lifts typically maintain their results for ten to fifteen years. On the other hand, liposuction and tummy tuck results can last even longer. However, it is essential to maintain a consistent, healthy weight afterward to get the optimum longevity out of your results.

Overall Care for Your Health Is Important

It's crucial to give your body time to recover and not strain yourself after receiving a mommy makeover. The results can last for a long time if you follow proper recovery habits to ensure everything settles in nicely.
