The Physical and Emotional Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

After you have children, you may notice significant changes to your body. You may find that many of these physical differences aren’t easily resolved with traditional diet and exercise. A “mommy makeover” is customizable involving multiple cosmetic procedures catered to your needs, including liposuction, tummy tuck, scar removal, breast augmentation, and vaginal rejuvenation. Continue reading to learn more about the physical and emotional benefits of a mommy makeover.

Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

Remove Stubborn Fat

Belly fat is notoriously difficult to lose for several reasons. For starters, belly fat is considered “active fat”. Furthermore, estrogen levels can impact abdominal fat. After you give birth, you may experience reduced levels of estrogen, which can cause your body to develop more stomach fat.

A tummy tuck can remove excess fat and skin on your abdomen after pregnancy. Just keep in mind that you’ll need to follow a healthy lifestyle to maintain the results.

Restore the Appearance of Your Breasts

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can take a serious toll on your breasts. While you may appreciate your breasts while using them to feed your children, the aesthetic result can be shocking once they’re no longer used to nourish your young.

A breast augmentation can restore the appearance of your breasts to make them appear perkier. You may even choose to add implants to make them larger than before your pregnancy.

Smoother Skin

The weight gain and subsequent weight loss after pregnancy can lead to stretch marks on your stomach, thighs, and buttocks. Your doctor can work with you to reduce the appearance of severe stretch marks during your mommy makeover.

Pain Relief

Diastasis recti refers to the process of your stomach separating during pregnancy. Abdominal separation can lead to back pain and pelvic pain. A tummy tuck will reconnect your stomach, alleviating this pain.

Increased Confidence

Many women experience insecurity when they look in the mirror at their post-pregnancy bodies. This insecurity can impact all aspects of your life, including your professional and personal relationships.

After your mommy makeover, you will feel better about what you see in the mirror. Therefore, you will approach your daily responsibilities and social interactions with more confidence.

Improved Sex Life

No one truly understands the physical impact giving birth has on their feminine parts until they experience it for themselves. Whether your experience was mild or severe, you’ll inevitably notice a difference. You may avoid sexual encounters due to pain or embarrassment. After your mommy makeover, you will feel better about getting intimate again.

Manage Post Partum Depression (PPD)

Motherhood gets stressful. A mommy makeover can help manage PPD symptoms and can improve your self confidence. Restoring your body to a look you love can diminish insecurity connected to PPD.
