There’s no question that today’s mothers are busier than ever. Moms may be caring for their children while working, volunteering, doing household chores, and more without much help.
When a mom feels unhappy with her body after pregnancy, her first thought is often, “I don’t have time for cosmetic surgery.” However, with a bit of extra support and advanced planning, nearly any mom can find a way to achieve the mommy makeover she desires, and feel great about her body again.
Asking for help
Most people have a difficult time asking for help, as our society seems to relish a “do-it-all-yourself” attitude. But if you’re going to consider a mommy makeover, you need someone to support you. This can be your partner, a friend, or family member. These individuals will need to drive you to and from surgery, and can help out in the days following surgery with quick errands, or with taking your kids to and from school and other activities.
You may be surprised to learn how many people are willing to help, if you simply ask. Sometimes, asking for help is the hardest part, but you’ll find that many people are excited to step in. This can help you feel relaxed and confident as you book your surgery, knowing your daily tasks will be taken care of and you’ll have the support you need.
Choosing the right time
Depending on your life and responsibilities, there’s probably a specific season or certain month during which having cosmetic surgery can be a little easier. Summertime is an ideal option, since your kids might be out of school and other parents and friends can help out. The holiday season is also ideal, especially if you’ll have time off work. Consider when a mommy makeover will work best for you, and start making plans.
How do I plan?
If you have support in place and know when you want to have surgery, make a list of things that need to be done while you’re recovering, along with who can help out. Omit items from your list that can wait a few days, such as cleaning the house or going grocery shopping. These to-dos can be done before your surgery, and can set you up for several days afterward. If you can’t stand a messy house and know your kids will trash it quickly, consider hiring someone to help with household chores, lawn maintenance, and other duties. As long as you have a few months to put plans in place, you shouldn’t face many hassles with finding the right people for the job.
