Being a mother is an extremely rewarding experience, and most mothers wouldn’t think of giving it up. However, at the same time, moms have it rough. Not only does a mother have to go through the trials and tribulations of pregnancy and childbirth, but also raising a child is no easy task either.
At a certain point, moms tend to look in the mirror and re-evaluate their bodies after their childbearing years. Things look a little different after you’ve had kids. The breasts tend to sag, and there’s usually a little pouch on the tummy. This is where mommy makeovers come in.
The Many Benefits of a Mommy Makeover Procedure
A Tighter Tummy
You can definitely look forward to a slimmer, flatter, tighter tummy after your mommy makeover. A tummy tuck is one of the main procedures.
Fuller, Perkier Breasts
With the breast lift portion of the makeover, those sagging, drooping breasts are perked up and restored back to their natural state.
More Confidence and Higher Self-Esteem
Along with the physical benefits of your makeover, you can also look forward to a renewed sense of self and a lot more confidence.
Who Is Right for a Mommy Makeover?
The mommy makeover procedure can do wonders for many types of mothers, but not every mom is right for this procedure. Below, some guidelines are listed. Make sure that you meet these guidelines so that you know a mommy makeover will be right for you.
You should be at your target weight: We know it’s not easy to lose weight quickly after having a child, so give yourself some time! Eat right and exercise as soon as you can to help you get yourself back to a healthy weight.
You shouldn’t be a smoker or a heavy drinker: Smoking can cause problems for your surgeon, and drinking heavily is not a healthy habit to have either. Try to kick these habits if they’ve been following you around so that you can be ready for your makeover.
Eat right: Even if you are at a healthy weight, that doesn’t mean you’re eating right. We want you to be as healthy as possible before your procedure, so make sure that you are following a quality diet plan that includes lots of fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains, lean proteins and plenty of water.
Have a support system in place for after the procedure: Finally, make sure that you’ll be able to recover in a calm and work-free environment. If you have many kids running around and waiting for you after the procedure, you need to have someone around to look after them because you won’t be up for it for about a week or two.
