Thanks to the Internet and a culture of oversharing, most of us know what Kim Kardashian looks like naked (and that she can balance a champagne glass on her butt.) In an era where little is left to the imagination, there’s something to be said for a little modesty. But if you scurry out of sight of full-length mirrors, insist on undressing in the dark, or have said “sayonara” to two piece swimsuits, a mommy makeover may be just what you need.
Motherhood is a gift, but those little bundles of joy can sure wreak havoc on the body. Strangers may love to pet a baby bump, but who’s gonna show a little love to the sagging, deflated belly that remains once the kiddo sets up residence outside the womb?
Even moms who take on the challenge of diet and exercise may find that their bodies just ain’t what they used to be. The baby weight might be gone, but there are often new pockets of fat that weren’t there before. Breasts are another saga. Many mothers fondly recall the days when their breasts had a youthful, perky shape and they didn’t need to hoist their hanging breasts up and into their bras.
Restore the Body
Mommy makeovers are customized to meet each woman’s needs and typically consist of a tummy tuck, breast enhancement and liposuction. A tummy tuck removes loose abdominal skin and repairs weakened stomach muscles. A breast lift (either with or without implants) elevates breast position and reshapes breasts for a more youthful look. Liposuction can remove stubborn pockets of fat and offer sleeker contours. Mommy makeovers are one of the most popular plastic surgery options precisely because they offer beautiful, natural-looking results and can restore your body to its pre-baby shape.
