Although motherhood is an extremely rewarding experience, many moms are aware of just how much of a toll this time of life can take on their physical appearance as well as their psychological well being. As a result, many moms suffer from varying levels of depression as well as severely low levels of self-esteem. However, in most cases, this can be rectified quite easily by having one or more mommy makeover procedures performed.

Why These Procedures Are so Popular Among Moms

After giving birth and raising children for a few years, many moms begin to feel extremely unattractive and insecure when looking in the mirror or trying to fit into their favorite pre-pregnancy outfits. This not only has a negative effect on self-esteem; it can also be extremely frustrating, especially when you have to invest in a completely new wardrobe of larger and often less attractive clothing to compensate for the changes in your body shape. Many moms report that after having a tummy tuck, breast enhancement surgery or liposuction, they are easily able to wear clothing that makes them feel special and attractive once again.

What Does a Mommy Makeover Consist of?

There is no fixed set of procedures that are used when it comes to performing mommy makeovers. However, some of the most commonly selected options include tummy tucks, breast lifts, breast implants, liposuction, breast enlargement and cosmetic injectable facial rejuvenation (Botox) procedures. While some moms may only opt for Botox injections, others may feel the need to remove excess body fat or change the appearance of their breasts. Although a mom can opt to have more than one of these procedures performed, each of them will usually be performed at different times in order to prevent the risk of adverse side effects from developing.

Decide Which Procedures Will Work for You

Before a cosmetic surgeon will perform any procedures on you, you will need to know ahead of time which ones you would like to have performed. This will enable him or her to guide you in the right direction by advising what will work and what won’t. If a surgeon does not recommend that you have a particular procedure performed, this is usually for a very good reason, and so it does not mean that you should go in search of another surgeon who will perform it instead. In most cases, alternative procedures or steps will normally be recommended, which can produce the same end results. However, if you are healthy, chances are that you can have most forms of plastic surgery.

It’s important to remember that after having your cosmetic surgery, you will need to rest and recover for up to a few weeks afterwards in order to maintain your improved appearance. This means that you will have to follow your surgeon’s instructions very carefully with regards to performing any form of physical activity. However, once you have healed completely, you can look forward to being able to wear your favorite jeans and strappy tops once again.
