Top Three Choices for the Mommy Makeover

When you are done having children, one of your first priorities is to get your pre-pregnancy body back. Many women use diet and exercise to try to lose that pregnancy weight and get back in shape, yet these methods are not always completely successful. A mommy makeover is a great way to get your body back to the shape you prefer. The process may include a number of different procedures depending on your personal needs. There are three main choices for a mommy makeover that are the most common.

Breast Lift with Optional Augmentation

Especially if you chose to breastfeed your baby, you may be experiencing some significant sagging of the breasts. This is completely normal after breastfeeding because the breasts go through so many changes in size during that time, and the skin and tissues become stretched. Some women also lose breast volume when they breastfeed. Most women choose to have a breast lift with their mommy makeover, with some also choosing to have augmentation.

The 3 Most Common Body Changes from Pregnancy

Becoming a mother is a wonderful thing, but there is no doubt that it wreaks havoc on your body. There are a lot of changes that will occur during and after your pregnancy. Some changes you just have to live with, but many of the changes your body goes through during and after childbirth can be rectified.

Breast Changes

Your breasts go through massive changes during and after pregnancy. As your pregnancy progresses, and immediately following the birth, your breasts can get significantly larger. Some women report gaining more than two cup sizes during and just after pregnancy. If you are not breastfeeding, your breasts after birth will begin to get smaller, but the skin and tissues will be stretched. This can cause significant sagging. A breast lift can really help bring your breasts back to the tight fullness that you once enjoyed before pregnancy.

Stomach Changes

Nearly every new mother has some stretch marks to show for her trials through pregnancy. While some stretch marks can be treated to be less visible, often these badges of honor are nothing to worry much about. The size of your stomach is another story. Unless you stayed very active during your pregnancy, you’re going to have some added flab to your midsection after birth. This can be very difficult to get rid of through diet and exercise, but a simple liposuction procedure can help bring you back to your pre-pregnancy size.

Vaginal Laxity

Childbirth stretches the tissues of the vagina and causes vaginal laxity, or a loosening of the vaginal tissues. Not only does vaginal laxity affect your sex life, it can also cause additional embarrassing problems. Stress incontinence, or urinating when you laugh or sneeze, can be quite common after giving birth. The more children you have had, the more likely you will have this problem. A vaginal rejuvenation with Geneveve is one option to get your life back to normal.

3 Reasons You Should Consider a Mommy Makeover

Mothers make the miracle of life possible, but often at the expense of their own bodies and self-esteem. Pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and the busy life of a mom in general all have the potential to cause unwanted changes to the body. Many women experience stretch marks, lax skin, deflated breasts, and stubborn pockets of fat after their children are born. Rather than living with these changes and the self-consciousness they bring, new mothers are now seeking the Mommy Makeover procedure. Read More

Its Time For A Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeovers

mommy makeoverBeing a mom is without a doubt one of the most difficult jobs in the world. You devote so much time and energy taking care of others that you often don’t have anything left over for yourself. Even the best moms need a break sometimes, and you’ll find that taking the time to treat yourself with a mommy makeover ultimately helps you to better care for your little ones.

Pregnancy and motherhood can take a huge toll on a woman’s body and affect the way she looks and feels about herself. Your post-pregnancy body may not be as taut and youthful as it was before baby. Once-supple breasts can become deflated and droopy after the breastfeeding period is over. Perhaps you’re having trouble dropping the baby weight, or you’re dealing with unattractive stretch marks.

And it’s not just new moms who struggle. Once a child comes into your life, your time is no longer your own, and you may find it difficult to keep up regular exercise and good nutrition. Not only that, but all the stress and lack of sleep can leave you with worry lines.

If the effects of aging and childbearing are getting you down, a mommy makeover might be in order. One of the newest trends in plastic surgery, a mommy makeover is a highly personalized treatment package that can include a tummy tuck; liposuction; breast lift, reduction or augmentation; facelift; and other procedures. Not every mommy has the same concerns, so this makeover is not one-size-fits-all. It can be whatever you want it to be, and an experienced, qualified plastic surgeon can help you design the rejuvenation strategy that works for you.

Many moms feel guilty focusing on their own needs, but remember that a mommy makeover is not a selfish endeavor. When you feel good about yourself, your confidence and happiness shines through in everything you do, which makes you a better caregiver and a great role model for your kids.
