Mommy Makeover, a word that can instantly capture the attention of mothers all around the world. A mother can go through many different phases and experiences from a bloated tummy to childbirth and breastfeeding. It is an amazing and awe-inspiring transition of a woman’s body. 

However, these significant changes can often lead to a slightly dissatisfied self-image. Breastfeeding your baby can cause the breasts to lose their shape and become saggy and the strain and stress of carrying and delivering the baby can widen hips and loosen up the abdominal muscles.

Most mothers have problems getting back the shape of their bodies after these transitions into motherhood. It makes sense that you want to have your old body back but it can be a daunting task for many. If it is so then you are not alone, thousands of other mothers are dealing with “baby weight” and sagging skin. 

Even if you lose this, it is quite difficult to get a flatter tummy. You can obviously use a healthy diet and physical exercise, but it still doesn’t get you where you really want to be. Mommy makeovers are the solution to this problem.

What is a mommy makeover?

Mommy makeover is a very popular cosmetic procedure that has helped many women across the United States to get their pre-pregnancy shape and body back. It is a combination of different surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures that help mothers bring back their old well-toned bodies.

The components of a mommy makeover

A mommy makeover involves many different procedures that can help the body get back in better shape. The most common procedures are often carried out on the breasts, as pregnancy can cause them to increase in volume by over 50% or more. Apart from this, the abdominal muscles are also affected as during childbirth they are stretched. A mommy makeover has different surgical procedures that can treat all these areas and give a healthy body back to mothers like a breast lift or a tummy tuck.

The procedures that are carried out in a mommy makeover include:

  • Tummy Tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Breast Surgery (Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift or Breast Reduction)
  • Labiaplasty

Filtering through plastic surgeons

There are countless cosmetic surgeons out there, ironically all of them claim to be the best at plastic surgery. You need to be vigilant and cautious in choosing the right cosmetic surgeon for yourself. You can go around to check the credibility of the plastic surgeons you want to visit online easily. There are real patient reviews available that will help you decide what plastic surgeon you should really visit.

You should also look for the before/after pictures of the surgeon you want to visit to actually see what kind of results they have produced and whether you want these changes in your body or not.

What happens during a mommy makeover consultation?

It can be a bit confusing for some mothers as to what really goes down during the initial examinations of a mommy makeover procedure. The doctors are usually quite easygoing and it really helps out in easing into the examination procedure. Usually, the doctor would examine your body and ask you about your medical history, and then suggest the procedures that he thinks can help you in getting a better and well-shaped body. You just need to be honest with the doctor about what kind of results you expect so that the whole procedure is grounded on the basis of your expectations combined with what can actually be achieved.

How can a mommy makeover benefit me?

Mothers that are breastfeeding can often experience weird sensations in their breasts paired up with a swelling in the breasts. Not only this, oftentimes there is a risk of infection in the sagging of the stomach and abdominal walls due to the stress and strain of childbirth. There are exercises and diets that can help in easing the whole situation but they are not permanent solutions. With all this going on, mothers can also face a constant moody feeling and a feeling of dissatisfaction with the physical appearance of their bodies.

A mommy makeover can help in alleviating almost all these problems for good. With a better-looking body, a better sense of self-image is developed that uplifts the mood. Apart from this, the health benefits are also quite extraordinary as the abdominal muscles are tightened from the tummy tuck and breast swelling is reduced with a breast lift or breast implants.
