Whether you’ve had one child or half a dozen, pregnancy can change your body in ways that are difficult or impossible to reverse without surgical help. Droopy belly skin, deflated and sagging breasts, stubborn fat deposits and even changes to your facial features may linger after your youngest is born. This can deflate your confidence, make you dissatisfied with your appearance and even cause physical discomfort. If you love your child but are less than thrilled with what pregnancy has done to your body, a Mommy Makeover can help you reclaim the pre-pregnancy attributes you wish you still had.
The Specifications of a Mommy Makeover
The term Mommy Makeover is shorthand for a combination procedure designed to address your specific complaints with your post-pregnancy body. As it’s adapted to your individual needs, there are no set specifications. For example, one woman may want a breast lift with breast implants and a tummy tuck while another woman may be happy with those areas but want liposuction on her thighs and a body lift. Our bodies carry weight, including babies, differently, so it stands to reason that different moms will have different complaints. Our surgeon will work with you to develop a surgical plan that addresses your specific problems.
Only Address Your Concerns
One of the beauties of pregnancy is that not all changes are necessarily bad. If you have noticed your breasts are larger, your thighs or backside are more full or your hips have widened to give you an hourglass shape, don’t be ashamed to like the changes! The point of a Mommy Makeover isn’t necessarily to erase all signs that you ever had a baby. The point is to correct what you don’t like. If it helps, write a list of your concerns before your appointment. This will help you organize your thoughts and have everything addressed.
Never Too Late for Surgery
If your youngest child is in high school or college and you’re wondering if it’s too late to do something about those stretch marks, the answer is a definitive no. Being a candidate for cosmetic surgery is based upon your overall health and wellness, not age. If you are generally healthy, there is likely no barrier to having a Mommy Makeover.
Having a child can make changes to your body that time simply won’t fix.
