Q: I am considering having a Mommy Makeover. I am quite certain that I do not want any more children. Will a hysterectomy effect my cosmetic results?

A: A hysterectomy should not have any effect on the cosmetic result you get from a tummy tuck or Mommy Makeover. These procedures are often performed together with gynecologic procedures such as hysterectomy and have the advantage of recovering from both procedures in the same period. There may be other options to avoid getting pregnant again such as a tubal ligation, but you should speak to your gynecologist about that. Your cosmetic result should be no different whether or not you have a hysterectomy performed either at the same or a different time.
