Dr. Ken Smart has helped many mothers in the Frisco and Plano, TX area with these body contouring skin tightening treatments.

But how can you make the results last as long as possible?

Fighting signs of age can be difficult after a mommy makeover, but there are many things you can do to prolong the benefits. Here are some tips and a little practical advice to consider.

Avoid a Subsequent Pregnancy

The key to making mommy makeovers last is to avoid getting pregnant again. If you undergo a mommy makeover and then get pregnant, you’ll stretch out your belly skin and experience more drooping and sagging after childbirth. This would all require another mommy makeover to treat. Even if minor touch-up work is required, it’s best to avoid the need for another cosmetic surgery.

This is why we always discuss future parenthood plans with potential mommy makeover patients. If a woman intends on having another baby, it’s best to wait on a mommy makeover until she is done having kids.

Use Sunblock Whenever You’re Outdoors

Sun damage can do a number on your skin. Over time, sun damage can lead to serious drooping, sagging, and cosmetic problems. This is why it’s important for mommy makeover patients to wear sunblock whenever they’re outdoors. It’ll prevent wrinkles and sagging, and it can also protect you from developing skin cancer.

Avoid Smoking and the Use of Tobacco Products

Smoking and tobacco products are bad for your general health. They can also have a negative impact on your appearance. After a mommy makeover, be sure to cut back on tobacco products. Ideally, you should kick the habit for good not just for aesthetics but to set a good example for your children.

Limit Your Intake of Alcoholic Beverages

Alcoholic beverages can have a similar negative affect on your appearance as tobacco products. For this reason, be sure to limit your intake of alcohol beverages. Only drink occasionally and in moderation.

Moisturize Regularly to Replenish Your Skin

Moisturizing is key to having skin that looks great and vibrant. Find a moisturizer that agrees with your skin and be sure to apply it daily. Ideally, consider moisturizing after you get out of the shower and apply as needed the rest of the day.

Exercise Regularly to Stay in Shape

Looking your best takes some work, which is why it’s important to remain physically fit. Cardio, strength training, stretching, and conditioning can prevent you from gaining excessive amounts of weight, which helps maintain cosmetic surgery outcomes.

Eat a Healthy and Well-Balanced Diet

Staying active is just half of the battle. Be sure to eat a well-balanced, nutritious diet as well. Focus on having fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains, lean sources of protein, and foods with omega-3 fatty acids. Avoid heavily processed foods, junk food, and soda.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Drinking water throughout the day helps keep you hydrated and feeling great. Whenever you feel thirsty, have a refreshing glass of water. It can make a major difference in the long run.
