Ask any mother what her most fulfilling experience was in her lifetime, and a significant portion of answers you’ll hear will be motherhood. A child fills a void that didn’t seem to exist before their arrival. The mother changes physically and mentally during the gestation period and post birth.
Labor is the most physically challenging event in a woman’s life. The body takes a toll and begins to transform as it shows signs of strain. Stretch marks, sagging skin, and isolated fat deposits are the most unsettling part of the package of becoming a mother.
To combat these changes, you can try committing to a diet and workout routine, but in most cases, it isn’t enough. There is, however, an answer to this problem many mothers face. That answer is a procedure known as mommy makeover.
About Mommy Makeovers
Mommy makeovers at Doylestown‘s Chapin Aesthetics are a series of personalized treatment plans put together by an experienced surgeon to address the cosmetic needs of their patients. These procedures are chosen based on personal goals, budget, physical health, and timeline. It’s a personalized solution that can be customized to fit the needs of an individual.
Can Every Mother Be a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
There are three important considerations a new mother has to make before opting for mommy makeover:
• How will the surgery affect family life?
• Am I physically fit to undergo surgery?
• What are the areas that require work?
Women, who successfully lose weight post-pregnancy, but struggle losing stubborn fat deposits are ideal candidates. The procedure is not restricted to new mothers. Some women wait a few years before they treat themselves to a complete makeover.
Mothers who give birth naturally or through a C-section can undergo the mommy makeover. The procedure is most suited for women who face sagging belly skin from a C-section. Blemishes and post-surgical marks are also minimized and in most cases, repaired.
To undergo a mommy makeover, you must be over the age of 18 and must not plan to have another baby. Having a baby after the mommy makeover does not pose any health risk but will reverse the achieved results. Most doctors advise potential patients to consider mommy makeover only when they are sure they don’t want to have more biological children. This is why young patients are often asked to wait a few years before the surgery.
Mommy makeover is a bad idea if:
• You have a health condition that makes administering anesthesia complicated
• You suffer from autoimmune diseases or any blood disorders
• You wish to lose a large amount of weight
• You find it difficult to quit smoking before and after procedure
• You wish to have more children
• You are overweight
What Does Mommy Makeover Include?
Generally, there are 5 cosmetic procedures that are included in a mommy makeover. The procedures are a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, liposuction, vaginal rejuvenation, and a Brazilian butt lift.
