How long will my plastic surgery post-pregnancy results last?
Your results should be long-lasting. However, if you had a breast augmentation with breast implants, your results will not be permanent since you will need to replace your implants over time.
Additional pregnancies or weight fluctuations could also negatively affect your results and cause stretch marks, sagging, and excess skin. This is why it’s important to wait to have your “mommy makeover” until after you are finished having children and follow a healthy diet and exercise program to maintain your results.
Additionally, plastic surgery cannot stop normal aging. Once your skin is tightened, it will gradually loosen and sag again as you age, negatively impacting your breast lift, breast reduction or tummy tuck results.
While results are individual to each patient, plastic surgery post-pregnancy before and after photos can help you assess what successful results will look like.
What do I need to consider after my surgery?
To achieve the most beautiful and safe outcome, it’s important you return to your aesthetic plastic surgeon's office for follow-up evaluations at prescribed times and whenever you notice any changes. Do not hesitate to contact your surgeon when you have any questions or concerns.
