Post-Pregnancy Mommy Makeover?
Becoming a mother can be an incredibly joyous, satisfying, and beautiful experience. But a number of women can become very self-conscious about their bodies…post pregnancy. For example, the stretching of the skin on the abdomen, thighs, breasts and other areas can lead to sagging, stretch marks, and cellulite after giving birth.
This is why a number of mothers are opting to have post pregnancy “mommy makeovers,” a combination of cosmetic surgeries, skin treatments, and cellulite removal. The primary purpose of mommy makeovers is to address the physical changes that have impacted your body and cannot be corrected by diet and exercise alone.
Being able to correct these issues and regain your confidence is one of the main reasons for considering a mommy makeover.
What Factors Should You Consider?
Because each woman’s pregnancy is different, each mommy makeover needs to be customized to address the unique needs and body goals of each woman. It is important that you work with a surgeon to get a good idea of the cost, time frame and how it will affect your family life as a new mom.
If you have successfully lost your pregnancy weight, but still have some sagging, stretch marks and pockets of fat, then you are an ideal candidate for a mommy makeover. But if you’re still planning on losing a considerable amount of weight or if you’re planning on having more children it is best to hold off on your mommy makeover procedures. No mommy makeover procedure is meant as a weight loss solution. However, you can expect to enjoy a firmer, tighter and more youthful look figure that is similar to the one you had before giving birth.
What are Some of the Mommy Makeover Treatments?
Stretch Mark Removal
Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
During your initial consultation, you can discuss which procedures you are interested in having and get the surgeon’s recommendations for what ones you are a good candidate for as well as your expected downtime after each procedure. After your physical exam, the surgeon will be able to recommend which procedures should be done and when. While a combination of liposuction and body contouring are the most common mommy makeover procedures recommendations are on a case-by-case basis and address your individual needs.
In addition to getting firmer, more youthful-looking bodies after having mommy makeover procedures, many patients also experienced an improved quality of life having regained their self-confidence. And because mommy makeovers address issues that diet and exercise alone cannot correct women that get mommy makeovers are more apt to stay true to their diet and exercise regimens and not become discouraged because not all their physical issues were being corrected.
