Becoming a mother is one of the world’s most rewarding experiences. However, after you have had the family you’ve always wanted, you might be unhappy with the state of your body. Many women find that they are left with saggy breasts, excess belly fat, and other issues. Even after dieting and exercise, it might not be possible to bring your body back to its pre-baby state. This is where a mommy makeover comes in handy. There are various reasons why women choose to have a mommy makeover, including the following.
Firming and Lifting the Breasts
One of the main reasons women get mommy makeovers is because they’re unhappy with their breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding. They may be left with drooping, sagging breasts that have lost volume. A breast lift is helpful for reshaping the breasts and tightening up excess skin to reposition them to a higher, perkier position that’s more attractive. Sometimes, breast implants are used to fill out the volume loss.
Flattening the Stomach
Pregnancy stretches the skin of the stomach to accommodate your growing baby. As a result, once you’ve given birth, you won’t automatically go back to having a flat stomach and taut abs. You may be left with loose skin and a bulge. A C-section can also stretch your abdominal muscles. A mommy makeover can address these issues as you can opt to have liposuction and a tummy tuck.
Fitting in Clothing Better
After you have had children, your body might be a new, larger size. Even if you have lost weight through dieting and exercise alone, you might still not be at the clothing size you enjoyed before pregnancy. A mommy makeover can help you to become slimmer so that you can feel confident about fitting into your previous clothing and even showing off skin you might have been too embarrassed to reveal before the procedure.
Liposuction is often used on the abdominal area, but many women have other problem areas as well. You might have excess fat and skin in the hips, buttocks, back or even arms. Liposuction can eliminate that unwanted fat so that you can feel confident about showing off your shapely figure again.
Feeling More Beautiful and Youthful
A mommy makeover can help you feel more beautiful and youthful. Even if you’re still young, after you have had children, pregnancy and breastfeeding can take their physical toll on your body. You may not be in the best shape, which can do a number on your self-confidence and self-esteem. However, with a mommy makeover, you can get that boost to reclaim the body you had prior to pregnancy. You can even customize your mommy makeover by adding procedures specifically tailored to your bodily situation. For example, a mommy makeover typically includes breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction. Sometimes, breast augmentation is included as well, but if you have another specific problem area, that can be addressed. You can add procedures such as arm lift or Brazilian butt lift to complete your mommy makeover.
