While having a child and getting older can be one of the best parts of your life, it can also be difficult on your body and can decrease your self confidence in how you look. Many have recently looked to get a “mommy makeover,” a procedure that corrects certain areas of your body and that can make you feel young again. Knowing when to invest in the procedure can be hard, but there are several indications of when you should consider getting one.
Needing a tummy tuck
Bodies can be stretched and can lose their original shape after carrying a baby. Most plastic surgeons recommend that patients undergo a “tummy tuck,” or the removal of loose skin from the abdomen area. A tummy tuck can be a simple way to get your pre-baby body back and to feel good when you hit the beach in your swimsuit. It can also help to eliminate stretch marks. Liposuction might also be required in order to regain that trim figure you might have lost.
Consider a breast lift or a breast augmentation
Breasts are another area that tend to look less like they used to after having children. Breastfeeding and the stretching from that area growing can leave lasting marks and effects. Many doctors recommend that patients go ahead and look into having a breast augmentation. If you have disliked the breasts you might have had before, they can even be improved upon. An experienced plastic surgeon can take a look and give you an idea of how much it will cost to give you the breasts that you have always wanted.
Risks and side effects
All surgery tends to come with some risks, and your plastic surgeon should make sure to talk to you about some of the side effects you might face after going through the procedure. Choosing an experienced doctor is the first step in eliminating risks that might be associated with the kind of surgery you are planning on having. Some common effects include internal bruising, soreness, swelling and numbing, implant ruptures, and more.
You deserve to feel good about yourself
It is very common to have low self-esteem after having children and to feel like you are not as attractive as you once were. However, with the right doctor and the right procedure, you can again feel like yourself. Knowing whether or not you should consider a mommy makeover can be the first step to feeling good about how you look again.
