Whether you have recently had a baby, or if you have been embracing motherhood for some time, you will have found that your body isn’t what it once was. While initially the way that you look is probably one of your lowest priorities, over time it is common to find women becoming frustrated with their post-pregnancy appearance. The excessive stretching of your abdomen, enlarging of your breasts and general weight gain can leave you with excess skin, stubborn pockets of fat and scarring that just doesn’t seem to improve no matter how hard you diet or exercise.
In a bid to combat these problems, many women who have complete their families are turning to cosmetic surgery, and in particular, a Mommy Makeover procedure. A Mommy Makeover combines various popular post-baby procedures into one surgical event, with them all performed on the same day. Some of these procedures include:
Exactly what is included in a Mommy Makeover package can usually be decided between the patient and surgeon during their consultation appointment. But, what are the benefits of opting for a Mommy Makeover? Read on to find out.
Restoring your pre-parenthood figure
Becoming a mom changes you in a lot of different ways. However, for many women, the physical changes to their body are some of the hardest to bear. Sagging breasts, loose skin and excess fat on the abdomen and stretch marks are just some of the most common complaints made by new and seasoned mums. Often, although weight loss will make some improvements to your figure, most women are left with stubborn problem areas that just won’t return to how they once were.
Mommy Makeover procedures are specifically designed to target those areas most affected by pregnancy and childbirth so that you can see a return of your pre-parenthood figure.
More youthful appearance
Not only can a Mommy Makeover restore your pre-pregnancy shape, it can also turn back the physical clock. Breast augmentations and lifts will make your breasts sit higher on your chest so that they look perkier and more youthful. Similarly, the improved tone and body definition created through tummy tuck and liposuction procedures can give you a silhouette that takes years off of your appearance.
Improved confidence and self-esteem
If you like the way that you look then you will experience improved confidence and self-esteem, the effects of which can filter throughout various aspects of your life including your personal relationships and your career. You may feel your sex drive increases, you feel happier showing your body and get further enjoyment out of being intimate with your partner. At work, your increased confidence may mean that you put yourself forward to accept more responsibilities and involve yourself more in day to day activities.
One recovery period for an incredible transformation
As a Mom you undoubtedly find that one of the biggest things that you lack is time to yourself, whether it is just to take a shower in peace or to have a little downtime and clear your head. With so many things to take care of and so many priorities to juggle, Moms really do supersede all others at multitasking.
One of the biggest practical benefits of a Mommy Makeover is that you will only need to go through one recovery period. The combination of procedures that you have may mean that the recovery process is a little longer and harder going than it would be for individual procedures. However, you will only be out of action once, rather than going through several surgeries each with a 4-6-week recovery period.
If your post-baby body is getting you down and you have been contemplating cosmetic surgery, by combining procedures into a Mommy Makeover you can benefit from a total transformation in just one surgery. Contact us today to find out more or to schedule your consultation.
