Do I Need To Lose Weight Before A Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeover surgery is a combination of plastic surgeries involving primarily the breasts and abdomen. It is common after pregnancy to see extra skin collect in these areas. Instead of splitting the procedures, patients can address both areas at once with a mommy makeover. A common question patients ask is, “Do I need to lose weight before a mommy makeover?”
It depends. Some patients will benefit losing weight before surgery. If a patient plans to lose significant weight, it is best to lose most of it before surgery because additional weight loss can worsen extra skin. This way—it can be fully addressed—and no further surgery is necessary.
However, if a patient wants to lose a moderate amount of weight, they likely do not need to lose weight before a mommy makeover because it will not likely have any effect on their results long term. Dr. Allegra can provide advice on this after examining the patient, their skin quality, and the amount of weight they want to lose.
