Once women learn about the great benefits a mommy makeover can provide and the problems it can correct, they want to know if they are candidates. The procedures performed during a mommy makeover can be intensive and traumatic for the body, which is why there are a few different guidelines for determining candidacy:
Although there are many older women who have benefited from the results of mommy makeover, the fact is, older women usually have more medical problems. If you are suffering from lung problems, heart problems, diabetes, or if you have other medical issues, you could be more at risk for developing unwanted side effects after your mommy makeover.

We want you to get the most out of your consultation. If at all possible, it is best to make arrangements for small children to stay home rather than having them join us for your appointments.
Mommy makeovers are designed for women who are finished having children. A mommy makeover will not prevent you from having children in the future, but if you do have children after your mommy makeover, the results of the cosmetic surgery could be reversed during the childbearing process.
When considering any type of plastic surgery, especially a mommy makeover, you should have realistic expectations of what your cosmetic surgeon can do for you. A mommy makeover is not the same thing as bariatric surgery or other weight-loss procedures. A mommy makeover is intended to reshape and recontour the body so that your overall appearance is sleeker and firmer.
If you are suffering from having excess skin and fat around your abdomen, you may be a candidate for a mommy makeover procedure. Many times liposuction and tummy tuck surgeries are performed during the mommy makeover procedure to help rid the body of the extra skin and fat that are uncorrectable through diet and exercise.
Childbirth is a wonderful thing, but the strain raising a child can put on your breasts can be too much for some women. All too often, women’s breasts appear deflated, sagging, or asymmetrical after having a child. During a mommy makeover, a breast lift or breast augmentation can be performed to restore your breasts and give you the breast appearance you had before having children.
