Ideally, women should wait several months after giving birth before they start thinking about a mommy makeover. This is because their bodies need time to heal after this major event. Their abdominal tissues will be stretched out and they may have wounds in their vaginal area that need to recover. Not only is this important for the woman’s health, but it’s also important for Dr. Sanders when planning the procedure. For example, if a woman wants to decrease her tummy size after giving birth, she may find that she naturally shrinks down to her pre-baby weight without any interventions after a few months Her condition is now optimized for a tummy tuck. Waiting helps Dr. Sanders choose the correct procedure, which ultimately gives women the results they desire.
