Throughout your pregnancy, you’ll probably receive lots of compliments about your glowing, radiant skin and your thick, shiny hair, thanks to an increase in estrogen and other pregnancy hormones. But after your baby is born, you might feel dismayed about certain physical changes you might not have expected. For instance, your tummy might be fuller and rounder, and your breasts may appear flatter and deflated. Post-pregnancy changes such as these can not only affect your confidence and self-esteem, but they can make you feel older, too.
But motherhood shouldn’t have to go hand in hand with feeling self-conscious about your new post-baby body! What you might benefit from is a mommy makeover, which is an ideal way to help restore your confidence and allow you to achieve the silhouette you’ve been desiring.
Read on for more info, and be sure to set up your complimentary consultation with Glow Surgical Arts about your own mommy makeover.
What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of two or more cosmetic procedures that can help you enhance your beauty and address problem areas that may have resulted from pregnancy. Mommy makeover procedures are customized specifically for you based on your desired look, so you can mix and match certain procedures that will work best for you.
For example, if breastfeeding and/or pregnancy have altered the size and appearance of your breasts, opt for breast augmentation and/or breast lift surgery to increase your breast size and shape to make them look fuller and rounder. Breast lift surgery can even change the positioning of your areolas and nipples.
Alternately, you can opt for tummy tuck surgery or liposuction in addition to breast augmentation and/or breast lift surgery to address pockets of loose, excess skin, or to target pockets of stubborn fat in areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise.
Benefits of a mommy makeover
A mommy makeover can help you feel refreshed and rejuvenated about your life and overall appearance, and can help banish any insecurities you might have about loose skin, excess weight, and sagging skin caused by pregnancy. Feeling happier about your appearance can also help you be more effective as a mother, especially if you want your kids to understand the importance of self-confidence. Plus, the more comfortable you feel, the more comfortable your kids and family will be when they spend quality time with you.
Is a mommy makeover right for you?
If you’re feeling less confident about your body after having children, you might be an ideal candidate for a mommy makeover. The best way to determine if the procedure is right for you is to schedule a consultation with an experienced cosmetic surgeon who can make recommendations based on your body type and goals. In some cases, you might learn that you can achieve your desired look with just one cosmetic procedure.
A mommy makeover is most ideal for women who are done having children, since pregnancy can interfere with the results of certain cosmetic procedures. A mommy makeover is also ideal for women who are at or near their desired weight, since any weight you lose following surgery could result in extra pockets of loose skin. If you’re still unsure about whether you’re an ideal mommy makeover candidate, make an appointment with a cosmetic surgeon to talk about your goals in greater detail.
