Getting Pregnant After a Tummy Tuck

© Alena Ozerova –

Women often go through a period of doubt when considering cosmetic procedures, feeling guilty or selfish for wanting mommy makeover surgery. They wonder how their family will cope throughout the mommy makeover recovery process, or what to tell their children about their new look.

It’s not selfish to want to feel better about yourself by getting a mommy makeover, but there are legitimate concerns to consider before deciding whether plastic surgery for moms is right for you.

One important consideration is your family’s plan for future children. Most women who opt for a mommy makeover should do so only after they have decided they have had as many children as they want, and will pursue no further pregnancies.

Is a pregnancy after a mommy makeover more dangerous?

Another pregnancy, though not necessarily more dangerous after a mommy makeover, can easily revert some or all of the changes made through a tummy tuck, breast lift, liposuction, and any other procedure performed during the makeover.

Since this set of procedures is aimed at transforming (and can be expensive), it is best to wait until after you are done having children to get your mommy makeover. Waiting until after your final pregnancy will assure the most lasting results possible.

Can’t I just have another surgery if I have another child?

It is possible to have more than one surgery to correct pregnancy-related issues, however, it is not cost-effective to spend the money on a second set of surgeries. Additionally, patients should consider that undergoing another major surgery should be avoided if at all possible.
