Having a child is a life-changing experience. Many women take joy in the birth of a child and the life changes that child brings along with it. However, those same women often feel self-conscious about the physical effects that pregnancy and birth leave behind on their bodies. Their skin has stretched around their thighs, breasts, abdomen, and in other areas. Once the child is born, those areas might sag, have stretch marks, or gather isolated fat deposits. Now, “Mommy Makeover” cosmetic procedures can help you get your pre-baby body back into shape.
When you have a child, you might assume that if you work hard enough on your diet and exercise program, you can bounce back into shape. For some women, that is true. However, for others, no matter how hard you work, there will be sagging, stretch marks, and other unwanted items left behind after the baby is born. That is where the Mommy Makeovers come into play.
Mommy Makeovers are fully customizable treatment plans that are suited to each mom in question. It all depends on the procedures you want and need, what your budget range is, your overall physical goals, your health, and the timeline on which you want to make the changes. None of the procedures are weight loss oriented, but you should come out the other side with a body that is sleeker and more like the one you had before your children arrived.
Some of the procedures that can be involved in the Mommy Makeover include breast lifts, breast augmentations, tummy tucks and liposuction. You can choose between the various procedures and depending on what you pick, you may even be able to have them all done at once. This is something that Dr. Papanicolaou can discuss with you during your consultation.
The Mommy Makeover should be done for your well-being. If you are not happy with your body and there does not seem to be anything you can do to change it, some or all of these procedures could help you out. You will need to be in good health, and your doctor will need to clear you for surgery. It is a good idea to look into recovery time and what you can expect after the surgery is complete so you know what to expect up front.
A Mommy Makeover can be a great thing for many women. It can give you the body you had before the baby and bring your self-confidence back up to the level it should be on. Being a mother is an incredibly rewarding experience. At Soma Plastic Surgery, we want to help you look as great as you feel.
