Being 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.
