Mommy makeover is the process of combining plastic surgery procedures to improve parts of a woman’s body changed by pregnancy and nursing. If you long for your pre-baby body, perhaps you have toyed with the idea of having a mommy makeover, but hesitate at the thought of taking time for yourself to have plastic surgery.
Dr. Donald Hause, a board-certified Sacramento plastic surgeon, believes mommy makeover is well worth the time and effort. Not only can it change your appearance, but it can help you be a happier mother. Consider the following reasons why you deserve to have a mommy makeover:
Diet and Exercise Can Only Do So Much
Pregnancy and nursing change a woman’s body in many ways — the breast and abdominal skin stretch, fat deposits accumulate around the body, and the abdominal muscles can stretch or weaken. And while diet and exercise efforts may help to reduce unwanted fat, these measures can only accomplish so much. Unfortunately, non-surgical procedures cannot tighten loose, saggy skin or repair damaged muscles. A mommy makeover can help to improve these issues and restore (or improve upon) your pre-baby body.
Your Needs and Wants Are Important
As a mother, you put your children first, making physical and emotional sacrifices on a near-daily basis. Although they are (rightly) your main priority, your needs, wants and goals are important, too! You deserve to invest time, money, and effort into pursuing your own desires.
Set a Good Example for Your Children
Children follow their parents’ lead. Improving areas that bother you can help you feel confident in yourself and comfortable in your own skin. Being confident sets a great example for your children that they will hopefully carry through their entire lives.
Put the Spark Back in Your Relationship
Feeling self-conscious of your appearance can put a damper on the intimate relationship you share with your significant other. By restoring your body and confidence, a mommy makeover can help put the spark back into your relationship. Or, if you are a single mother on the dating market, it can help you appear more confident to prospective partners!
If You’re Happier, then Your Family Is Happier
Your family functions best when you are happy. If you’re self-conscious, moody, or unhappy with your appearance, or you feel as though your body holds you back, the people closest to you pick up on those emotions. On the other hand, if you are happy and have a positive attitude, the overall vibe in your home will be happier, too!
