But, what about getting pregnant after a mommy makeover? Is it possible and if so, will it alter the results? Let’s dive deeper into this blog to find out!

🧐 Is it possible to give birth after a Mommy Makeover?

Briefly, yes. A mommy makeover does not deprive a person of their ability to reproduce; you can even have multiple pregnancies afterwards.

However, keep in mind that the cosmetic results of the surgery will likely to change. That is because the operations chosen for mommy makeover directly target imperfections in the body for which the pregnancy period caused. Therefore, another pregnancy after turning the body into its pre-pregnancy state may have a reversing effect on the mommy makeover results.

That is why, Dr. Cengizhan Ekizceli advises his patients to get a mommy makeover after they think they are done with their family planning. Although the surgeries in question do not harm the ability to give birth or provide for a baby, the outcomes can be far from what you want to achieve in the long run. Here are some explanations for typical mommy makeover surgeries:

🩺 Pregnancy after Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a plastic surgery to re-define the abdomen by removing the saggy belly skin. It is usually the first option when it comes to planning a mommy makeover, since the infamous ‘mom pooch’ is hard to get rid of.

Getting pregnant after a tummy tuck is perfectly healthy & possible. Yet, you should take note of the below elements before your pregnancy:

  • Recovery Time: It’s important to wait at least 6-12 months after the tummy tuck surgery before getting pregnant. This allows your body sufficient time to heal.
  • Changes in Results: Pregnancy can stretch the skin and muscles of your abdomen, which might alter the results of your tummy tuck. This doesn’t prevent you from having a pregnancy, but it may affect the cosmetic outcome of the surgery.
  • Safety: Pregnancy after a tummy tuck is generally safe. However, you should consult both your plastic surgeon and obstetrician to ensure that you receive the appropriate care and guidance throughout your pregnancy.

💉 Pregnancy after Liposuction

Liposuction, commonly referred to as lipo, is a minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment to remove persistent fat deposits from the body. In the context of a mommy makeover, liposuction is generally used to enhance the results of a tummy tuck and reshape the post-partum figure.

As in the case of tummy tuck, liposuction also does not have a direct effect on giving birth. 

However, it’s recommended to allow your body to fully heal after the procedure before becoming pregnant. Pregnancy can change the distribution of fat in your body, which might impact the cosmetic results of liposuction. Consulting with your doctor for personalized advice is always a good idea.

♀️ Pregnancy after Vaginal Rejuvenation

There are many surgeries regarded as a vaginal rejuvenation practice, each targeting different defects of the genital area. Some are:

  • Labiaplasty → for reducing the size of labia*
  • Vaginoplasty → for reconstructing/constructing the vagina
  • Monsplasty/Mons Pubis Reduction/Pubic Lift → for reducing the size of mons pubis*
  • Perineorrhaphy/Perineoplasty → for improving the perineum*

*labia: the folds of skin surrounding the vaginal opening
*mons pubis: the fatty, rounded area overlying the pubic bone
*perineum: the area of skin between the vaginal opening and the anus

Listed surgeries aim to restore the appearance of the genitals before giving birth. Such restorations may include tightening the vaginal canal or lifting the outer skin, but never come close to altering the reproductive system. So, yes, you can have another pregnancy even after getting such cosmetic treatments down there.

But, after undergoing one of those operations, childbirth can potentially alter the outcomes of the surgery because the vaginal tissues may stretch during delivery. It’s typically advised to get such surgeries after completing your plans for childbirth to achieve ideal results.

🍼 Breastfeeding after Plastic Breast Surgeries

So far in this blog, we have concluded that no surgeries in a mommy makeover can take away your ability to conceive. Breastfeeding, on the other hand, is an important part of functioning in motherhood as well.

🤏 Breastfeeding after Breast Reduction

Yes, it is generally possible to breastfeed after having a breast reduction surgery. Although the technique used and the extent of tissue removal can affect milk production, many women successfully breastfeed after this procedure.

🥑 Breastfeeding after Breast Augmentation

Breast enlargement surgery does not affect the ability to breastfeed. But when it is done through incisions around the areola or under the breast crease, it can potentially interfere with milk production or flow. However, many women who undergo breast augmentation can still breastfeed successfully.

⤴️ Breastfeeding after Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery typically does not affect the ability to breastfeed, as it primarily involves reshaping the breast tissue and repositioning the nipples without significantly impacting milk ducts.

In each case, choosing a skilled and experienced surgeon like Dr. Cengizhan can help ensure that you achieve your desired cosmetic results while preserving your milk ducts. Many women successfully breastfeed after these surgeries, supported by careful surgical planning and expertise.
