Motherhood is an incredibly challenging and transformational experience. Unfortunately, keeping up with the differences your body undergoes during pregnancy and after childbirth can be difficult. For some women, the alterations in their physical appearance after giving birth are far more drastic than what they had expected.
A woman’s body undergoes many unwanted changes after childbirth, which can make her feel unattractive, out of shape, and self-conscious. What’s more, women’s bodies can shift in appearance for months due to the hormones released after birth.
Fortunately, there are several ways to reverse these undesirable effects. If lifestyle modifications in diet and regular exercise achieve no noticeable results, another option is to get a “mommy makeover.”
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a cosmetic treatment that improves a woman’s overall appearance after giving birth. For instance, surgery may be performed to remove excess skin, fat, and stretch marks to restore her figure.
After giving birth, more and more mothers are turning to cosmetic surgery to help them feel more like themselves again. Because many new mothers experience flabby skin and loose muscle tone after giving birth, these procedures boost their self-confidence. A tummy tuck, for instance, will flatten, firm and tone their abdomen so that they can fit back into tighter fitting clothes again.
Mommy makeovers are customized because no two women experience pregnancy and childbirth the same way. This procedure can address both pre-existing issues and issues related to pregnancy and childbirth.
Women can decide on a wide variety of surgical options to address changes in their bodies after pregnancy, including breast augmentation, tummy tucks, liposuction, buttock augmentation, and vaginal rejuvenation.
In general, recovery time for most operations ranges from one to four weeks, after which patients can return to work.
The Benefits of a Mommy Makeover
The cost of surgery is reduced because a makeover combines several surgeries. You can, for example, decide to improve the shape and tone of your belly and breasts as part of a mommy makeover.
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, will remove excess skin and fat from the abdominal area. This is an effective way to recuperate from some of the muscle tissue damage caused during pregnancy or childbirth.
Another popular option women elect to have is breast rejuvenation. Breast shape and size can be changed through breast augmentation, lift, or reduction surgery.
Besides restoring a woman’s body back to her pre-pregnancy years, this surgery also helps restore her self-confidence.
