Having a baby changes everything. You now have a tiny person to love and care for, and things that used to seem important no longer matter. Having a baby also changes your body. While some women are able to get their pre-baby body back with just exercise and diet, many cannot. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can change the shape and size of the breasts and lead to a sagging tummy, even if you had a flat, smooth stomach area before.
That’s why a mommy makeover is such a popular procedure. Typically performed after a woman has finished having children, a mommy makeover can restore the shape of the breasts, flatten the tummy and remove stubborn, unwanted fat. It offers many benefits beyond changing your appearance, too.
A Mommy Makeover Offers Flexible Options
Plastic surgery is never a one-size-fits-all procedure. That is definitely the case when it comes to a mommy makeover. The procedure typically includes surgery to change the size or position of the breasts, such as a breast augmentation or breast lift. It also typically includes a tummy tuck to restore a flat stomach and liposuction to remove unwanted fat.
Since pregnancy changes different women’s bodies in different ways, the makeover can be adjusted or adapted to fit your needs. Perhaps you didn’t experience many changes to your breasts during pregnancy or after breastfeeding, but you are bothered by the tummy that’s developed. You can choose to have liposuction and a tummy tuck, and skip the breast procedures.
If your breasts didn’t really change size but are droopier now, you can opt for a breast lift on its own. Perhaps you’ve got some extra fat around your tummy and hips, but your skin isn’t sagging, and you lost some volume in your breasts. Your makeover can involve liposuction and a breast augmentation, but no tummy tuck. The best way to figure out which options are right for you is to sit down with a qualified plastic surgeon and discuss what you’d like to get out of your makeover.
A Mommy Makeover Gives You Back Your Confidence
Having a baby can make you feel happy and fulfilled. But you might also feel upset or embarrassed over the way your pregnancy or pregnancies have changed your body. If you used to love to rock a bikini at the beach, but now settle for a one piece or a tent-like cover up, or if you once wore body conscious clothing but now only pick your baggiest options, a makeover can help you get your fashion mojo back. If you feel generally dissatisfied with your tummy or the size and shape of your breasts, a makeover can help improve your satisfaction and make you love the body you have.
You don’t have to give up or stop caring about your appearance because you’ve got kids now. With a mommy makeover, you can have it all: great kids and a great body that makes you feel confident and happy.
