Plastic Surgery Right After Giving Birth?

There are many women that are anxious to get their pre-baby bodies back as soon as possible. As a result, a common question that women have is “how long do I have to wait after giving birth to have plastic surgery?”.  There is no black and white answer as there are a number of things to consider.

When is the Right Time to Have Plastic Surgery?

If you are contemplating having plastic surgery after having a baby, these are some of the things that must be considered when determining the right time. You need to answer the questions below and discuss each of those factors with your doctor.

  • Did you have a C-section?
  • Were there any physical complications when you gave birth?
  • Are you nursing?
  • Have you lost any of the baby weight?
  • Which plastic surgery procedure are you considering?

While every surgeon is unique, many will recommend that patients wait at least 6 months before going under the knife. This is particularly true when more intensive procedures are being considered. The factors above must all be recognized when making the decision as they are important for your safety.
