At the same time, you’re planning so many things, from the going home outfits to what your childcare schedule will look like.

And if you are worried about your post-baby body, there is another thing you might be thinking about: your mommy makeover.

But is that really a good thing to be thinking about before you even meet your little one? Let’s take a look at how to plan a mommy makeover and if it matters whether or not you are still pregnant.

Is There Any Harm in Planning Cosmetic Surgery While Pregnant?

In theory, no. There is no harm in planning your mommy makeover while still pregnant — so long as you keep an open mind.

If you are flexible with your expectations, there is no harm in planning your mommy makeover while still expecting.

Think about it this way: it’s fine to plan your wedding, but if you don’t even have a boyfriend, let alone a fiancé, you need to be open to the idea that your plans are going to change. It’s the same with a mommy makeover. It can be fun to plan the procedures you want to be part of it, as well as what the final results will look like, but at this point, you have no clue what your post-baby body will be. And that is the foundation of the whole procedure.

So, go ahead and plan and daydream. Just be ready to make some adjustments when the time comes.

Of Course, Your Daydreams Need to Be Healthy

It isn’t uncommon for expectant mothers to fixate on their figures. And it is no wonder: It is easy to look at new stretch marks and a giant belly and figure that you are going to be left with a striped bag of loose skin. However, too much fixation can lead to anxiety.

If planning your mommy makeover while still pregnant makes you feel empowered and like you have control over the things that worry you, plan away. But if you find that thinking about it or your body makes you anxious, depressed or stressed, back away. Find other things to concentrate on, and even talk to a therapist about it. Big emotions are normal, but when they overwhelm, they aren’t good for you or baby.

How to Plan a Mommy Makeover When Pregnant

Assuming planning makes you feel more empowered than anxious, here are some tips on how to plan a mommy makeover while expecting.

  • Research Surgeons: You want to find someone who is qualified, has plenty of mommy makeover experience and shows before and after photos that make you feel confident in their work.
  • Read About Success Stories: This needs to be a time of uplifting yourself, so find stories from women who have had mommy makeover procedures and use them as inspiration.
  • Set a Reasonable Timeline: Before you can even consider surgery, you need to be fully recovered from birth, which can take six months or more.
  • Discover What Mommy Makeovers Can Do: There are so many things these procedures can address, from c-section scars to facial wrinkles. Learn about the wealth of possibilities.
  • Get Over the Guilt: Wanting to change your body after baby can bring about guilt. After all, the baby you already love so much made those changes. Take this time to get over the guilt so you are in the right frame of mind when the time comes.
