Mommy Makeover: Regain your Confidence!
A mommy makeover can help you get back to your pre-baby body! It can help you feel more attractive, self-confident, and comfortable in your own skin. Many women would like to change something about their body once their family is complete, and many mommies do something about it.
First, ask yourself a few questions to see if the mommy makeover surgery is right for you!
1. Are you planning on having more children?
If so, wait. Additional pregnancies will probably reverse the results of the surgery.
2. What do you expect from your mommy makeover surgery?
It will make your body look better and will likely improve your self-confidence. However, it will not change your life.
3. Are your kids old enough to be cared for by someone else for 2 weeks while you recover from your mommy makeover?
Will you be able to take at least 2 weeks off for your mommy makeover?
4. What exactly is a mommy makeover?
Most commonly, a mommy makeover is a combination of a tummy tuck, breast life or enhancement, and liposuction. The only solution to tighten up that tummy is abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), a surgical tightening of the skin and muscle of the abdominal wall. This mommy makeover procedure removes excess skin below the belly button, tightens and flattens the abdominal muscles, and gets rid of stretch marks. Surgical options are a breast lift, augmentation or both. A lift removes excess skin, raises the nipples and reduces sagging. If you’ve lost volume, a breast augmentation may be right for you. Safe, natural-looking implants fill out the stretched skin and return the volume you lost during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Liposuction is an especially effective approach for moms with stubborn problem areas. In addition to the overall weight gain that usually comes with pregnancy, hormonal changes can cause localized fat deposits in the abdomen, hips, thighs and back. Diet and exercise don’t help with these deposits, which makes liposuction the ideal solution for tackling trouble spots.
