If I Plan to Have More Children, Can I Still Have a Mommy Makeover?

Watch this video by Samuel Shatkin Jr., MD, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Buffalo, NY as he explains the appropriate approach to a Mommy Makeover if you plan to have more children.

Mommy makeovers are ideally done when pregnancies are complete. Some women aren’t sure, so they might consider doing a procedure prior to deciding whether they want more children. I have done procedures on women that have had a full tummy tuck and then later on go to have children, and that’s certainly a possibility. But many times, if they’re not sure they’re going to have children and they know it’ll be at least a year or more, then they can undergo a surgical procedure to correct some of the changes that they don’t like.
