Weight Gain After Mommy Makeover: How Will It Affect Results?
Weight gain and skin stretched caused by pregnancy, breastfeeding, and aging are often the reasons patients choose to seek out a mommy makeover procedure. A mommy makeover is a plastic surgery that combines an individualized group of procedures. Usually, a mommy makeover addresses the breasts and abdomen, although it can also include a Brazilian butt lift or correction of the thighs, arms, and even facial surgeries.
After surgery though, weight gain (for any reason), can compromise your results. If breast implants were placed, this can increase the size of the breasts and cause stretch marks or a change in shape. While after pregnancy or with weight loss the breasts can return to their post-surgery size and shape, it is not guaranteed and will likely not look exactly like your previous breast augmentation results.
Tummy tuck — another common procedure part of a mommy makeover –requires maintaining a stable weight and lifestyle because weight gain can restretch the skin and reverse what your Seattle tummy tuck accomplished.
Before seeking a mommy makeover in Seattle, you should plan not to have any more children and be at a stable weight. This will give you the best chance at maintaining your mommy makeover results.
