When looking at all the changes your body has gone through after having children, it can be easy to assume that the only answer is plastic surgery. While it is true that there are some things only surgery can accomplish, this doesn’t mean that it is the right answer in all cases. So, how can you know if you need a mommy makeover or a workout plan?
Exercise Comes before a Mommy Makeover

If you are worried about determining which is right for you — mommy makeover or exercise — you can rest easy. The truth is that exercise should always come before a mommy makeover because you will see the best results if you come as close to your target weight and shape as possible first.
If you start a new exercise plan and discover that the results meet or exceed your expectations, then you are good to go, no mommy makeover needed. If not, you can start looking for plastic surgeons to discuss the details of your mommy makeover.
Signs that Indicate Surgery Is Better
The main reason to opt for a mommy makeover in addition to a great exercise regimen is that working out can only do so much. For example, sagging breasts or loss of volume won’t change, even if you hit the gym every day. And separated abdominal muscles often require surgery to repair.
If removing stubborn fat and improving muscle tone are your primary concerns, on the other hand, then exercise might do the trick.
