Let’s face it; mothers have the hardest job of all. Even in this modern age of equality, moms carry a heavy load of responsibility for their families. This burden is definitely felt right after birth. You have literally pushed your body and mind to the limits. Your reward is the ultimate gift. You have brought a beautiful human being into this world. We know that you are proud of the sacrifices you have made for your baby, but it’s okay if you are questioning what this experience has done to your body. Many women have mixed emotions after having their babies. They are shocked at how much their body could change in just nine months. If this sounds like you, then you may be interested in a Mommy Makeover.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is how many describe any combination of cosmetic procedures which women seek post-pregnancy. These procedures are intended to improve parts of the body that are negatively affected by pregnancy and childbirth. Generally, the Mommy Makeover would focus on the stomach area or the breast area. Each woman will have her own specific goals in mind of what she hopes to accomplish through her Mommy Makeover. This is why we offer a thorough consultation so that you can discuss your goals with the doctor. This helps women make the best decision for themselves.
Is There Help for My Tummy?
One of the most popular focal points for a Mommy Makeover is the stomach. The stomach changes so drastically during pregnancy. Many women find that they cannot return their stomach to its pre-pregnancy size or shape, despite much exercise and dieting. This is because the stomach muscles have been traumatized and the skin has been stretched. If you are not genetically geared toward great elasticity, then that skin will not return to its former appearance.
Elasticity can also affect whether or not the muscles in your abdomen tighten back up again. None of that is your fault, and no amount of exercise can accomplish this. You must realize that your abdominal wall has been damaged through childbirth. A Mommy Makeover can fix this for you, though.
What About My Breasts?
Many women are delighted with their larger breasts’ size during pregnancy. However, they are not so delighted after delivery and a few months of breastfeeding. The swelling and shrinking that takes place during pregnancy and after delivery can cause permanent sagging in the breasts, not to mention the toll that breastfeeding will also take. During a Mommy Makeover consultation, you can discuss your expectations for breast enhancement.
