How Much Weight Is Typically Lost With A Mommy Makeover?

The weight a woman gains and loses during and after pregnancy can have a drastic impact on her body, especially after multiple pregnancies. The appearance of stretch marks, excess abdominal skin, and extra pounds that will not budge, even with a healthy diet and exercise routine–these are issues that women deal with after childbirth. If a woman is suffering from one or more of these conditions, a mommy makeover can alleviate them and help her get back to her pre-pregnancy figure.

A mommy makeover is not a procedure that produces a dramatic weight reduction. However, a tummy tuck paired with liposuction (frequent procedure choices in a mommy makeover surgery) can eliminate stubborn fat and saggy, scarred skin. This process will typically cause a patient’s weight to decrease by 5 to 15 pounds, though individual results will vary. Patients should be within 10 to 20 pounds of their ideal weight before undergoing a mommy makeover.

Regaining confidence and a healthy body image post-pregnancy can be a difficult journey for any woman. A mommy makeover can provide the boost of confidence you need to see a positive impact on your daily life.
