3 Minute Read:
Some women look at the body changes after pregnancy and childbirth as medals of honor; others look at them as curses.
During this period, tissues stretch, weight is gained, and—afterward—women often need many months to heal.
There are mothers who see these changes as a natural progression, and they are fine with them; however, there are also others who see these changes as a cause for low self-esteem, and they yearn to recover their pre-pregnancy looks.
This is why it can be a good time to consider getting a Mommy Makeover.
Why Should I Consider a Mommy Makeover?
One of the most normal things in life is to want to look your best. While some new mommies consider the stretch marks and other scars left behind by pregnancy to be a trophy of sorts, others don’t feel the same way.
There is nothing wrong or abnormal about feeling upset at how pregnancy has changed your body, which is why plastic surgery after pregnancy is one of the best ways to help you feel sexy and confident once more, even when your genetic makeup doesn’t allow you to return to your old figure again on your own.
What Procedures Are Performed During a Mommy Makeover?
The procedures performed in Mommy Makeover are targeted to fix the troublesome areas that changed during your pregnancy and are tailored to your specific cosmetic needs.
Each Mommy Makeover is different and may include the following:
- Breast augmentation surgery—restores volume that may have been lost after breastfeeding is complete
- Breast lift surgery—addresses breast sagging and ensures the breasts remain lifted and perky
- Tummy tuck surgery—repairs the stretched skin and muscles in your abdominal area
- Liposuction surgery—removes excess fat left from your pregnancy weight gain
- Labiaplasty surgery—rejuvenates the appearance of your vulva after vaginal delivery
How Should I Prepare for My Mommy Makeover?
One of the first things to consider when preparing for your Mommy Makeover is that you must let your body heal from childbirth. Once you are ready for the procedures, you must prepare by taking a few simple steps that will help you feel better and make the process a more positive one.
Some of these steps include:
- Quit smoking to help prevent any complications during surgery.
- If you are taking blood thinners, talk to your surgeon about stopping them for a while.
- Relax and rest properly in the days leading up to your procedure.
- Talk to your surgeon about any questions or doubts you may be experiencing.
- Take time off work so that you can recover properly.
- Adopt a positive mindset about your surgery and be realistic in your expectations.
