Just as no 2 children are the same, neither are 2 mother’s bodies after giving birth. Pregnancy and childbirth affect every woman differently, and getting that pre-baby body back requires a custom, individualized approach. You’re not alone if childbirth has left you longing for the body you once had.
Many women are turning to plastic surgery and a popular procedure known as a mommy makeover to restore their look. A mommy makeover is not one procedure, but rather a collection of procedures especially popular with women who have children in their 20’s and early 30’s who desire their pre-pregnancy look.
Each mommy makeover is different, but many include a breast augmentation or breast lift, a tummy tuck, and possibly liposuction. These procedures target saggy, drooping breasts, loose and flabby abdominal skin, and stretch marks left behind after pregnancy.
Though any surgery has risks, mommy makeovers are considered safe and fairly routine these days. The surgery can be performed as early as 6 months after delivering a child. The best candidates for mommy makeovers are women who are done having children. Depending on the circumstances and scheduled procedures, a mommy makeover may be scheduled to be completed in a single session.
Many women who receive a mommy makeover report that their self esteem soars after the procedures. The boost of confidence that comes from feeling comfortable with your body is an extra benefit! While the procedure is not a replacement for a healthy diet and exercise, it certainly is a good way to get results when diet and exercise aren’t enough to achieve the desired outcome.
