What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures that help restore the mother’s appearance to her pre-pregnancy body. Women can choose a different combination of surgeries, but the most common procedures include:

The results of a Mommy Makeover can be generally permanent if you know how to take care of yourself post-surgery. Simply follow these tips to help maintain your Mommy Makeover results.

Tip One: Diet

If you gain weight after your surgeries, you’ll likely see changes to your results. Unfortunately, “mom life” is typically quite stressful and busy, which leads to people slipping up and engaging in poor diet decisions. If you can stick to a wholesome diet, you’ll maintain a healthy weight and keep your fantastic Mommy Makeover results.

Always eat a diet full of vitamin-rich foods, such as vegetables, fruits, lean meats, and whole grains. Avoid excessive amounts of bad fats as much as possible. Additionally, eat a diet low in processed sugar. Our bodies tend to store sugar as abdominal fat, which is incredibly difficult to shed once it is on.

Lastly, make sure to stay hydrated. Drinking enough water throughout the day helps you maintain high energy levels. It also helps you to feel full, so you do not overeat at your meals.

Tip Two: Exercise

Weight fluctuations can impact the quality of your Mommy Makeover results. One way to ensure you don’t go through weight fluctuations is with a regular fitness routine. Find a format of exercise that you love and stay active at least three to four times a week. 

For those that just can’t get enough exercise in, there is the option of using Evolve Tone. Using Electromagnetic Stimulation (EMS), Evolve works out your muscles to create more tone and maintain a flatter abdomen and fuller glutes.

Tip Three: Self-Care

Ensure that you are taking care of yourself, including getting enough sleep and maintaining your stress levels. When we are overtired and overstressed, we tend to indulge in bad foods and skip our exercise routines. Keep yourself happy and motivated by taking care of yourself, and your results will stay!

Dr. Agullo also offers Evolve Tite, which uses radiofrequency energy to continue to tighten your skin and maintain its tightness after surgery.
