Can A Mommy Makeover Help Your Family?
Motherhood is a beautiful and rewarding journey, but it is a venture that requires endless amounts of selflessness and sacrifice, beginning at pregnancy (sometimes earlier!) when a mother’s body is taken over and transformed in ways and shapes she probably never imagined. Even for women with resilient bodies, you can be sure that pregnancy leaves every mother a physically changed. Some women wear these physical changes proudly, like a badge representing their accomplishment, but not everyone can embrace their post-baby body so wholeheartedly. For moms of any age, that want to get back, or improve, their body, a mommy makeover may be a good option.
After giving birth, many women state feeling that they lose their individual identity, including feeling confident and sexy. These feelings are understandable when your number one priority has become taking care of others. While there are plenty of sacrifices that are unavoidable, loving the way you look doesn’t have to be one of them. A mommy makeover is a complementary combination of cosmetic procedures that address the areas of a woman’s body that are the most affected by pregnancy and nursing.
A lot of the women that are interested in a mommy makeover struggle with guilt at the idea of spending the money on themselves or taking the “time off” for recovery, even though they would gladly spend that money on their family or happily support their spouse getting some “R&R” time. It is important for moms to understand how fundamental their personal happiness is to the overall happiness of their families. Although it may seem counterintuitive, the better you care for yourself, the happier you are to take care of others, and in the big scheme of things, it is a small financial and time investment that pays out big dividends to your family.
If you are a good candidate for a mommy makeover, it can ultimately be an experience that takes you from being unhappy with your body to loving your reflection, which has far-reaching effects on your confidence and happiness. A one-on-one consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon is the best way to discuss your goals and concerns, ask questions, and develop a customized treatment plan that best meets your needs.
