Are you thinking about restoring your pre-baby body with mommy makeover surgery but have concerns that you may be too thin for a body contouring procedure? Try not to worry. Most women who are at a healthy, stable weight and are otherwise healthy can be considered good candidates for mommy makeover surgery. Still, there are some important factors to consider regarding your weight, your lifestyle, and even your future plans for expanding your family as you decide on the best time to schedule your Dallas, TX mommy makeover. To help you make the most appropriate choice – and one that you can feel confident about – board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Hanz and the caring team at Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery will guide you through each step of the mommy makeover planning and scheduling process.
What’s included in a mommy makeover?
Because full mommy makeover surgery is most frequently used to address the physical changes associated with pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and weight loss, the procedure typically includes some combination of the following:
- Breast enhancement: breast augmentation, breast lift, fat transfer to the breast, breast revision, or breast reduction
- Body contouring: tummy tuck, liposuction, Brazilian butt lift
- Skin removal and tightening: Thigh lift, lower body lift, butt lift
Is there a weight limit for mommy makeover surgery?
Ideally, mommy makeover patients should already be near their goal weight – or have reached it – but struggle with concerns like loose skin or drooping breasts. Isolated areas of stubborn fat can be addressed during a mommy makeover, but patients should keep in mind that the procedure is not considered a weight-loss tool. Rather than identifying eligible mommy makeover candidates by weight alone, Dr. Hanz will take into account the patient’s BMI, health and medical history, overall health status, and other factors.
One of the most important variables in determining if now is the right time for a mommy makeover is what your plans are for having children in the future. Pregnancy after a mommy makeover, while possible, can greatly impact or compromise your newly enhanced figure, leading many women to require a repeat surgery at a later date. For this reason, women are strongly encouraged to be certain they are done having children before scheduling their mommy makeover.
Can you be too thin for a mommy makeover?
Women who are exceptionally thin and/or those who have a low body fat percentage can usually still undergo mommy makeover surgery if they are in good health otherwise. In fact, mommy makeover surgery for very thin women can actually help to add more curves and create a more feminine, hourglass figure through breast augmentation and butt enhancement, for example. However, because these women may not have enough excess fat available for a fat transfer to the breast or a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Hanz may make enhancements using synthetic implants and/or fillers. Regardless of your weight, we will work with you to develop a course of action that helps you to safely reach your desired aesthetic goals.
