Should You Add Liposuction to Your Mommy Makeover?

Posted on July 5, 2019

Woman looking at her waist in the mirror.Living your best life sometimes means putting yourself first so you can continue to take care of your family with a clear, positive mindset. For many women, this means planning a mommy makeover to help them regain self-confidence and love their bodies.

If you’re still in the planning stages, you’re probably wondering which procedures you should include. While a tummy tuck, breast lift and breast augmentation are some of the most common, a mommy makeover with lipo could make sense in lots of cases. Here’s how to tell if it might be right for you.

Where Are Your Trouble Spots?

Liposuction can help to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat in areas like your waist, hips, stomach, back, thighs and upper arms. If you’re including a tummy tuck in your mommy makeover to remove excess skin and are also concerned about exercise-resistant fat in your abdominal area, adding liposuction could be an effective solution.

What Are Your Goals?

Explain your goals to your plastic surgeon during your consultation to help you decide if liposuction could add to your mommy makeover results.

While liposuction is an excellent body contouring tool that can help you get the smooth, slim physique you want, it’s not a weight loss method. So if you’re looking to drop significant weight, lipo probably isn’t right for you.

On the other hand, if your goal is to get rid of pesky love handles that don’t budge with exercise, adding lipo to your mommy makeover could be a great choice.
