If you are a woman, the odds are that there have always been a few issues regarding your appearance that have bothered you. Maybe it was the size, shape and/or asymmetry of your breasts that made you feel very self-conscious and not very sexy. It could have been that pooch in the middle of your abdomen that seemed grotesquely large. Or possibly it was that mini-muffin top or broad hips just didn’t make the grade for you. Whatever you thought was horrible back then you long for now.
Why is that?
Because you have had one or more children – and they have DESTROYED your body!
Yup! Ironically, in the scheme of things, those were your golden years of beauty. Now you are older, more tired and believe that negative adjectives like flabby, droopy, deflated, broad and fat well describe your appearance. You feel frustrated and even more self-conscious and less attractive now. It may seem almost hopeless but…
You do have options to help correct the devastation that pregnancies have wreaked on your body. In fact, you may even end up looking better in many ways than you did prior to becoming pregnant – and feeling better about yourself as well.
How is that possible?
As explained in the Mommy Makeover section, the most common procedures performed to deal with the physical changes following pregnancy include cosmetic breast surgery such as a breast augmentation with or without a breast lift or even a breast reduction – combined with an abdominal procedure such as a full tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) or mini tummy tuck. Liposuction and other procedures can also be performed concurrently.
The results from mommy makeovers can be overwhelmingly positive and immensely rewarding. They can help a woman regain confidence, self-esteem, and feel happier as well as attractive and sexy again. A patient of mine who underwent a mommy makeover, shares her positive sentiments in the following video:
