Baton Rouge: Having children is a wonderful thing but getting back into shape after you've had kids is hard and is often not done. In Wednesday's Expert Advice segment Dr. Anthony Stephens answers a viewers question about a mommy makeover. Stephens said the words "mommy makeover" is a term that's commonly used as marketing. What it really involves is a series of plastic surgery options to get your body back to where it was before you had kids.
Getting a mommy makeover is not for everyone. In order for the surgeries to work best for you Dr. Stephens said you must meet certain criteria. You must be done breastfeeding, you must be the weight you were before you got pregnant, and finally, you must also be healthy and a non-smoker.
During the interview Dr. Stephens talks about what to expect from the surgery, recovery time, and how much it will cost. If you have more questions about the mommy makeover or if you are interested in getting the procedure click here.
