The experiences of pregnancy, birth, and motherhood are challenging, rewarding, overwhelming at times, and transformative—in more ways than one. As you journey from the baby bump to the somewhat terrifying first ride home from the hospital, everything literally changes. Your heart changes, your priorities change, and your body really changes. Anyone who has been through it knows that having a baby will put your body through some remarkable damage before, during, and after your family brings home its newest little member.
For many women who struggle with their body image after their baby arrives, it can be frustrating when diet and exercise just don’t seem to get them back to their original shape. That’s because sagging skin, torn muscles, and shifting features aren’t always fixable with cardio and fewer carbs. At our plastic surgery practices in Huntersville and Charlotte, NC, we offer a package of surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments we call the mommy makeover, put together specifically for moms who want to regain their self-confidence after having kids. Here’s a little about the mommy makeover and some of our top reasons for why it’s so popular.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a custom treatment plan to help target the body’s areas that are most commonly affected after a woman has had children. Often, this includes procedures such as:
- Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
- Breast augmentation
- Breast reduction
- Breast lift
A mommy makeover is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, which allows you to recover comfortably at home.
So, What Makes Mommy Makeovers So Popular?
To help you understand why the mommy makeover is becoming such a hot trend in plastic surgery, here are some of the top reasons we hear moms love it at our practice:
There Is No Age Limit for the Mommy Makeover
The mommy makeover is a relatively timeless procedure. You can get it done shortly after you’ve finished having kids, or years down the road, whenever it’s most convenient and comfortable in your life to do so.
It’s a Reward for One of the Hardest and Most Selfless Acts a Woman Can Perform
There’s nothing easy about giving birth and raising children. Sure, it’s awfully rewarding work, but it’s also one of the hardest things you can put your body and mind through. Many women see a mommy makeover as one of the most complete ways to treat themselves after having kids.
It Can Help You Feel Like a Woman Again
After having a baby or babies, there will be many times when you might not feel your usual, feminine, sexy self. A mommy makeover can be one of the driving forces that changes that feeling in your life and helps get you back to the body confidence you had before bringing new life into the world.
A Mommy Makeover Helps Restore and Rejuvenate Your Breasts
Youthful, perkier breasts are among the things many women have to part with when they decide to have children. However, a breast lift or breast augmentation during a mommy makeover can help you say hello to breasts that fit in better harmony with your new self.
