WHAT IS A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding all place immense strain on a woman’s body, and can result in undesirable aesthetic changes to a woman’s thighs, breasts and abdomen. According to a recent survey of new mothers, losing the weight gained during pregnancy was less of a concern than adjusting to the changes in their body shape after pregnancy and childbirth. Nearly half of the 7000 moms surveyed were unhappy with the post-pregnancy changes to their breasts, thighs, hips, and abdomens, and eighty-six percent of the women surveyed said that 1-2 years after having their baby, their stomachs still had not been restored to their pre-pregnancy shape and tone.
Attempting to restore one’s pre-pregnancy physique while caring for a newborn infant and juggling family responsibilities may feel like an impossible undertaking, especially when some of the post-pregnancy body changes persist despite proper diet and exercise regimens. Fortunately, innovations in the field of cosmetic body contouring procedures have resulted in a vast number of safe, effective body sculpting surgeries with shorter recovery periods, allowing busy mothers to enhance their physical appearance and improve their self-confidence levels with minimal interruption to their busy schedules.
As increasing numbers of new mothers began seeking out specific body contouring surgeries, the term “Mommy Makeover” was coined to reflect the category of popular body surgeries most frequently sought after by women seeking to restore their pre-pregnancy physiques. The rising “Mommy Makeover” trend is a reflection of the fact that many modern women have come to understand that taking the time to care for themselves can have a positive impact not only on their self-confidence levels, but also on the quality of their social and familial relationships.
The exact combination of procedures involved in a Mommy Makeover varies from patient to patient; however, a Mommy Makeover generally includes one or more body shaping procedures and breast surgeries, such as:
Your Mommy Makeover procedural details, and the length of your post-operative recovery period, will depend upon the details of your unique treatment plan, and the group of procedures you have selected for your Mommy Makeover surgery.
