In the aftermath of pregnancy, women can suffer through some of the darkest days of their lives. Along with the pain and trauma of the delivery, the lack of sleep and constant need to attend to the needs of the baby can affect women both mentally and physically. Sometimes it is also hard to deal with the permanent changes to the body that are the result of the pregnancy, such as stretch marks, scarring, and the loosened skin around the abdomen. While some of these heal or fade with time, many women feel that the changes brought on by motherhood have affected their appearance forever. This is why a mommy makeover can be one of the greatest gifts you can give your spouse.
What Exactly is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a package of cosmetic procedures that are designed to address the most common concerns that women have about their appearance postpartum. It focuses on problem areas such as drooping of the breasts that result from breastfeeding and excess fat deposits in certain areas. While the exact package of procedures may vary based on individual needs and concerns, the makeover may combine common procedures such as a tummy tuck, breast lift, liposuction, and breast augmentation. The aim of this combination of surgeries is to restore your woman to the attractive appearance that she used to have prior to pregnancy or even give her a whole new body to enjoy as she begins life as a mother.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
The mommy makeover may not be right for everyone, but many women may have their self-esteem and quality of life enhanced by the procedures. Women who are planning to have more children may wish to wait for a later date and certain health conditions may disqualify them from elective surgery. However, women who are good candidates are those who have had difficulty getting back into shape because sagging stomach skin or women whose breasts are not firming up even with the help of a healthy diet and exercise regimen. Such frustrations may even contribute to women no longer feeling comfortable participating in activities they used to enjoy because of concerns with their body image. For these women, the mommy makeover package can be the greatest gift you could ever give her.
