Mommy makeovers are customizable plastic surgery procedures that usually combine body contouring like a tummy tuck and liposuction with a breast procedure like a lift and/or implants. Even though these are aimed at helping you get that pre-baby body back, it’ll be worth it in the long run to hit the gym before your mommy makeover, and here’s why.
With any surgical procedure, there is always going to be some risk of complications during surgery. However, you can work to greatly reduce that risk by following a few guidelines:
- Choose a board-certified plastic surgeon with lots of experience performing mommy makeovers.
- Get in shape before your surgery.
You’ll Recover Faster
When your body is used to working out and is in great physical shape, it can bounce back from surgery much more quickly and with a lower chance of running into bumps along the way.
Combine workouts like running, jogging or biking with a healthy, balanced diet full of fresh fruits and veggies to boost your immune system and healing response time.
You’ll See Better Results
Finally, if you’re investing the time into getting a mommy makeover, you might as well renew that gym membership, too, so you can get the absolute most out of your plastic surgery. Even though body contouring procedures can help with stubborn fat, they’re not going to be able to help you lose pounds.
Maximize your mommy makeover results by putting in the sweat equity now and reaping the many benefits later!
