Can Plastic Surgery Return a Pre-Baby Body?

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reveals there were 15.6 million cosmetic procedures in 2020. Many women do not feel like themselves after having a baby and cannot fully reach their post-birth goals through diet and exercise. Prospective patients looking to restore their figure after childbirth often ask whether plastic surgery can return a pre-baby body. If you miss how your body looked before pregnancy and childbirth, plastic surgery offers long-term solutions to return your body to its gorgeous, pre-pregnancy state.

Galardi | Bowen Plastic Surgery offers effective surgical procedures to restore your pre-baby figure and improve your self-confidence and quality of life. Call today to learn more about our customizable options.

Common Procedures for Restoring Your Figure After Childbirth

It is possible to regain a pre-baby body with a mommy makeover, which involves several routine plastic surgery procedures. Typical mommy makeover treatments include liposuction and tummy tuck to eliminate excess fat and loose skin around the waist and stomach. A tummy tuck operation also helps repair damage to the abdominal walls after pregnancy. Other standard plastic surgery procedures to get back a pre-baby body include:

During your appointment, our board-certified surgeons will discuss your desires and goals. The doctors will carefully examine your body in its current post-childbirth state and recommend which surgeries to consider for your treatment plan. Most women choose to have breast augmentation or lift combined with liposuction and abdominal surgery. The surgeons at Galardi | Bowen Plastic Surgery will take care of you from start to finish and ensure that you reach your goals.

What to Expect After a Mommy Makeover

After a complete mommy makeover, you will need time to recover. If you had a tummy tuck, you might need to recuperate at home for the first week and limit your activity for several more weeks. During the first week after surgery, you are not allowed to do much lifting, meaning you may need help with basic daily activities like cooking. You will start seeing results around two to three weeks after your procedure, once surgical side effects like swelling, tenderness, and slight bruising subside.
