Being a mother truly is a life-changing experience, and every moment should be cherished. But it’s also important to invest in your own well-being. And if that means getting your pre-baby body back, there are ways to do that without taking a toll on quality time with your baby.
Also known as post-pregnancy surgery, a Mommy Makeover includes a number of cosmetic procedures chosen for your unique body and goals to restore your pre-baby appearance. These are just some of the procedures that many mommies include in their own personal Mommy Makeover, and they can even be performed in a single visit.
Belly – Hard to avoid, but if you carry a baby that weighs 6-9 lbs. (plus fluids and the extra organ you grew called a placenta), your belly is going to s t r e t c h. Very rarely does it cooperate by snapping back into shape after you give birth. Saggy skin, extra pounds and a “pooch” are common. A tummy tuck, aka abdominoplasty, is the removal of sagging skin and fat. A tummy tuck results in a flat belly and smooth contour. It may even mean removal of stretch marks depending on where they are located.
Breasts – Whether or not you breast feed, your breasts undergo some radical changes during and after pregnancy. One of the first symptoms in early pregnancy is sore, enlarged breasts, and they only get larger, especially right after baby is born, when you breasts fill up with milk. Breastfeeding prolongs the enlargement and exposes you to their larger gravitational pull until your baby is weaned. These factors usually contribute to breasts that are not as high and firm as they may have been in the past. A Mommy Makeover often includes a breast lift and depending on your body, either augmentation or reduction.
Face – With a new baby, sleep may be interrupted, you may stay up late to take care of everything you can fit in while the kid(s) is asleep, and chances are, you are woken up a bit earlier these days. Your eyes can look tired with bags underneath and droops where there never were droops before. Worries can rise to wrinkles on your forehead, creases between the eyes, and marionette lines on the corners of your mouth. A Mommy Makeover can rejuvenate your face with a facial or peel, Botox and fillers to smooth out lines, and an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) to eliminate bags and drooping eyelids.
