Mommies, You Deserve a Makeover! (part 1)
Think of all the sacrifices you make as a mother. Time, sleep, your sanity and your body are all sacrificed for your precious little ones. If you find that after years of caring for basically everyone but yourself has left your outward appearance looking a lot older and more tired than you want, you need to consider what tens of thousands of other mommies are doing…the Mommy Makeover.
In Boston we are restoring mommies back into their pre-baby (or better than ever) bodies every day. A mommy makeover is a series of cosmetic surgery procedures that help women restore a youthful figure after pregnancy and childbirth. For most our clients this often involves a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) combined with breast augmentation and/or breast lift surgery. After multiple childbirths many women also want to reduce the size of their labia via labiaplasty since vaginal births can stretch out the skin and vaginal canal.
Here in Boston, we love helping moms recapture aspects of their physique and renew their self-confidence through mommy makeovers. If you’re a mom who is bothered by the changes brought by pregnancy, then a mommy makeover may be right for you. Mommy Makeovers address problems such as:
- The tummy bulge from stretched out skin
- Stubborn areas of body fat
- Sagging or deflated breasts
- Stretched out labia from vaginal births
These conditions are very common for women who have given birth and thankfully, there are options to improve your shape and self-confidence if you choose to do so. Candidates for a mommy makeover are healthy non-smoking women who are done having children and have a stable body weight and realistic expectations. If you are still planning on more childbirths or planning on losing a significant amount of weight then mommy makeover may be better postponed until after you’ve reached those goals. Also, it’s best to wait at least 3 to 6 months after childbirth before considering a mommy makeover
