Motherhood can be one of the most rewarding journeys for a woman. Bringing a baby into the world is an unforgettable experience for a woman, but it comes with physical changes resulting from pregnancy, birth, and nursing. These changes can leave the mom feeling less satisfied and confident with her body.
After childbirth, women may notice unsightly changes on their body such as stretch marks and pockets of excess fat around the body. Many women are left with loose skin, sagging breasts, and weakened abdominal muscles following childbirth.
Many mothers seek ways to return to their pre-pregnancy body. One of the most common methods these women choose is the mommy makeover, a string of surgical procedures performed to reshape and tighten the body. The number and type of procedures varies by individual, but generally, women undergoing the mommy makeover seek surgeries to target the breasts and abdomen. Though the procedure combination can vary, it commonly includes breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, liposuction, and butt lift.
The Mommy Makeover procedure is a popular request among mothers; surgeons recommend carefully assessing timelines before moving forward with cosmetic surgery. It is crucial to find and visit a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine if the individual is a good candidate for the procedure. Surprisingly, the Mommy Makeover trend is also requested by mothers who have grown children.
Recovery time will vary depending on the type and number of procedures performed. Most women should plan to take about 10 to 14 days off from work and other daily activities. One may also experience swelling and bruising following surgery, so be sure to have a spouse, friend, or family member assist during the recovery process.
