Children fill our lives and hearts in ways we never imagined. But sometimes, pregnancy and childbearing affect our bodies in ways we never expected. When your body doesn’t bounce back from pregnancy, it can leave you feeling less like yourself.
Pregnancy is hard on your body. Even if you work out consistently to reach your pre-pregnancy weight, you may find that exercise and diet aren’t quite enough to bring back your previous figure. Abdominal muscles and tissue that have been stretched by pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can’t always recover their shape, despite your best efforts. A Mommy Makeover can help.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover combines plastic surgery solutions like liposuction and breast augmentation to return you to your pre-baby body. It can help restore your shape – and your self-confidence.
Your body changes in extraordinary ways to accommodate and nurture your little one. But it doesn’t always recover without help. After pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, the effects on your body become evident. Many women are frustrated by unwanted fat, loose skin, and breasts that changed shape.
What Procedures are Included in a Mommy Makeover?
Every woman’s experience with pregnancy is as unique as her body. One woman may only wish for a little lift or tuck, while another may decide that sculpting several areas is what she needs to return to her vibrant pre-pregnancy self.
Mommy Makeovers are designed and individualized just for you. Possible procedures include:
Is a Mommy Makeover Right for You?
The choice to have plastic surgery is a very personal decision. Your partnership with your plastic surgeon is important in ensuring you have all the information needed to choose the best options. At your consultation, you will discuss your history, goals, and other considerations. Your doctor can guide you to make the best decisions for your body and lifestyle. You’ll talk about things like:
- Your goals for restoration
- The procedures you’re considering
- Your medical history, including medications
- Placement of the incisions
- Type of implants used for breast augmentation
- Recovery time and guidelines
Your surgeon will talk to you about your goals, options, risks, and likely outcomes.
Are You Ready for a Mommy Makeover?
For the best results, it is important to be ready physically and mentally. Before you consider a Mommy Makeover, it is recommended that you are:
- Completely healed from childbirth
- Done breastfeeding
- Done having children
- Healthy, at an ideal body weight
- Optimistic, with realistic expectations
- Committed to caring for yourself during recovery and maintaining your results
Most of the time, your procedures can be performed all at once, and you can be back to work or most activities after two weeks. You won’t be able to lift more than a few pounds for several weeks, so you may need help with childcare afterward.
There are many reasons to consider a Mommy Makeover, but the most important one is your happiness. This is a personal decision you should make for yourself, not based on anyone else’s expectations. Restoring your shape and appearance post-pregnancy is about restoring more than your body. It’s about restoring how you see yourself and how you feel about yourself.
