Summary: Transitioning into motherhood is a wonderful blessing that will forever change your life. However, as much as you love your precious new baby, you may not be in love with the effects that pregnancy and nursing can have on your body. A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures designed to improve and correct some of the problems areas that can remain after your baby is born. In addition to the physical and aesthetic improvements that a mommy makeover can provide, the procedure offers emotional benefits as well.
1. Improved Self-Esteem
Whether it’s saggy, deflated breasts, a stretched-out stomach or a combination of issues, you may look in the mirror and feel frustrated with what you see. A mommy makeover is a customizable combination of procedures that can include breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, tummy tuck and other cosmetic treatments. Becoming a mother is no reason to lose your confidence. When you look good, you feel good, and a mommy makeover can be ideal for offering many moms a renewed sense of self-esteem.
2. Feel Sexier
Confidence can go beyond how you feel in certain clothing or whether or not you feel comfortable wearing a swimsuit on the beach. The stress and rigors of parenthood can often take a toll on the intimate lives of moms and dads, and this problem can be exacerbated when women no longer feel comfortable or sexy when naked.
If you’ve become insecure with intimate situations because of the physical effects of pregnancy, consider how a mommy makeover could restore your confidence in your appearance and improve your intimate relationship.
3. Making Yourself a Priority Is Important
Being a mom can mean stressful days, long nights and never-ending to-do lists, all with no sick or vacation days. Out of love for their families, moms often wind up putting their needs and wants last and don’t make themselves a priority. Remember that doing something to make yourself happy doesn’t mean you’re selfish. Mommy makeovers continue to grow in popularity because women are realizing it’s perfectly fine, and healthy, to put themselves first from time to time.
4. Enhance Your Weight Loss Efforts
Very few women escape pregnancy without extra weight that remains after the baby is born. Once you’ve healed from childbirth, you can work to shed those extra pounds with diet and exercise. However, stubborn problem areas that are resistant to traditional weight loss efforts may remain.
After pregnancy, it’s common stomach skin to be loose or saggy, and neither diet nor exercise can fix this situation. A mommy makeover typically includes some type of body contouring, such as liposuction or a tummy tuck, to highlight your weight loss efforts and improve your body’s contours in ways that are beyond the scope of dieting and gym visits.
5. When You’re Happier, Your Family Will Be Too
Everyone’s heard the saying, “If momma’s not happy, nobody’s happy.” If you’re struggling with body image issues and aren’t comfortable in your own skin, chances are your mood reflects those negative feelings. If you are constantly upset, frustrated or unhappy, you’re likely affecting everyone in the household. Finding your happiness again by restoring your body to its pre-baby glory can often have a huge impact on your temperament and significantly improve the atmosphere in the entire household.
