An Introduction To The Mommy Makeover

Sample Post: Ultimate Writers

After giving birth, your body will be very different compared to how it was before pregnancy. There’s no way to avoid it, the huge stresses that pregnancy puts on the female body alter it permanently.

Or at least it used to be permanent…

These days we have the ‘mommy makeover’. It’s a way to restore a woman’s body to her pre-pregnancy form (or even better). 

So, what is a mommy makeover and how does it work?

What is a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover is a collection of cosmetic procedures that are personalized to the individual. They can be surgical procedures, non-surgical or a mixture of both, and are intended to address the changes that a woman’s body has undergone both during and after childbirth.

What does it include?

Each mommy makeover is uniquely designed, allowing it to focus on the aspects that are most important to you. A mommy makeover commonly includes at least one surgical procedure, such as liposuction, a tummy tuck, breast lift/augmentation or feminine rejuvenation, and if you have chosen to undergo more than one, these can generally be completed in one operation.

A mommy makeover can also include non-surgical procedures, such as cellulite reduction, treatments targeting skin resurfacing and tightening and non-surgical fat reduction. Non-surgical options are becoming increasingly popular and can offer remarkable results without a long recovery time.

When should you have one?

Deciding when to have a mommy makeover is a personal decision that should be made by you and your cosmetic surgeon, but there are a few questions that must be taken into consideration. 

These include:

  • Are you breastfeeding? If not, when did you finish?
  • How long ago did you give birth?
  • Are you planning on having more children?
  • How many children do you have, and how old are they?

The answers to these questions will affect the timeframes of both surgical and non-surgical procedures (e.g. you may not be able to undergo some non-surgical procedures whilst breastfeeding and some surgical procedure recoveries do not allow you to lift more than 5-10lbs), so an in-depth discussion with your surgeon will be able to assist when it comes to timing of your mommy makeover.

Why should you have one?

A mommy makeover can restore body positivity and confidence that you may have lost after having children. They can help you be more comfortable in your skin and your appearance, which are huge benefits for all women.

Ultimately, it is a personal choice as to what is the most suitable mommy makeover arrangement for you. When completed by a professional, a mommy makeover can be a positive and life-changing decision, so ensure you complete your research and choose a cosmetic surgeon that you trust and meet with them for a thorough consultation.
