While motherhood is a beautiful and rewarding experience, it’s also hard work, both physically and emotionally, and involves a lot of tough decisions. But a mommy makeover is a decision mothers can feel confident about.
Postpartum, many women struggle with body issues, as pregnancy and breastfeeding take a significant toll. But mommy makeover surgery, which typically involves a tummy tuck, breast enhancement, and liposuction, can give women their pre-pregnancy bodies back.
If you’re struggling with the way you look after giving birth, Dr. Robert Galiano shares why you deserve a mommy makeover below.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding change women’s bodies in several ways. Abdominal muscles are weakened, the skin around the breasts and abdomen becomes loose, and the breasts look deflated.
These changes make a lot of women feel self-conscious and uncomfortable in their skin. This can cause women to withdraw from social situations and avoid certain activities, which can hinder their relationships and prevent them from enjoying life to the fullest.
A mommy makeover addresses issues specific to postpartum bodies so women can feel great about the way they look and get their confidence back.
Fix Issues That Diet and Exercise Alone Cannot
Diet and exercise help women get their pre-pregnancy bodies back by reducing fat and toning the body. But they can’t do much to tighten loose or sagging skin or to repair weakened muscles.
A mommy makeover, on the other hand, can alleviate these issues.
A tummy tuck restores weakened muscles and creates a smoother, tighter abdominal profile. Breast enhancement through a lift, augmentation, or a combination of both removes excess skin and reshapes the breasts so they’re perkier and more voluminous. And liposuction removes fat cells and improves contours in specific areas of the body.
Wear the Clothes You Want
Clothing may not fit women’s postpartum bodies as easily, and women may feel uncomfortable wearing certain items, such as two-piece bathing suits.
But mommy makeover surgery tightens the body and gives it a smoother contour so women’s clothing fits their bodies better and they feel more secure about wearing the clothes they want.
Motherhood is a thankless job, and many mothers make sacrifices and prioritize their families over themselves. But as a mother, your needs and goals are important and should be taken care of too. A mommy makeover is something you can do for yourself.
