The Mommy Makeover: The Best Gift You Can Ever Give Yourself

Women sacrifice everything to have children, and then they sacrifice even more every day raising those children. As such, moms do not get to take care of themselves, nor do they allow themselves any small (or large!) luxuries just to make sure their children have enough. That is sad, because moms do so much and should have a lot more than they do for all they do.

Even cosmetic surgeons think so; they created the "mommy makeover" so that women could feel so very beautiful on the outside to match their selfless beauty on the inside. Here are all of the surgeries typically involved with a "mommy makeover." All of them are optional, so you do not have to feel pressured to do all of the procedures. Do just the ones you want to create your own fabulous makeover. 

Breast Lift

Pregnancy causes a lot of changes in the body. One of those changes alters the tissue in the breasts so that the milk ducts can swell and fill with milk for the baby. Once you wean the baby, the breasts flatten out and droop. The more babies you have, the lower and flatter the breasts become. The breast lift puts your breasts back where they were before you ever had a baby. It is often paired with augmentation, but if you would rather not have implants, the surgeon can just lift the breast tissue back into position. 

Breast Augmentation

Women sometimes find that after babies no longer need breasts for food, their breasts shrink. This shrinkage makes the breasts smaller than they were before the first pregnancy. Wanting their old breasts back, they opt for both the lift procedure and the implants. 

Torso Lift

There is just something about gaining a lot of weight to support a growing baby in utero that lends itself to tons of jiggly postpartum rolls that gravity drags to the floor. A torso lift removes a lot of the sag and bag from around your middle and your upper back so that you actually have a waistline again. Women really love the torso lift, especially when it is paired with the liposuction and abdominoplasty. 

Liposuction and Abdominoplasty

Ah, the famed tummy tuck! People want this procedure even before they have kids. After they have kids they really want the procedure. Paired with liposuction, it reshapes and tightens your whole abdomen. Pair it with the torso lift and breast lift, and your body will look better than it ever has before.

About Me

Looking Like Myself Again

About a year ago, I realized that I was really starting to look my age. I had sagging skin, loads of wrinkles, and age spots galore. It was embarrassing, so I decided to meet with a cosmetic surgeon to help me to troubleshoot my appearance. They were a lot of help. They went through, told me all of my options, and worked hard to give me the look that I used to have. This blog is for anyone out there who has ever considered plastic surgery. With the help of your doctor, you can look like yourself again and feel a lot younger.
