You and your significant other have built your family. While he may have developed a “dad bod,” having babies didn’t really make changes to his body. However, pregnancy and its associated hormonal changes and weight gain may have really done a number on yours.
Hey, you made the babies together, so he should chip in for your mommy makeover, right? Whether your baby daddy chips in to cover the cost or not, mommy makeover benefits are well worth the price when you want to get your pre-pregnancy body and curves back.
Tailor Procedures to Address Your Needs
Even if Daddy helps pay, your mommy makeover should be what you want.
A mommy makeover is a procedure that combines multiple body contouring options. The most common procedures are breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction and tummy tuck. But you are not limited to just these surgeries.
A mommy makeover allows you to target YOUR needs. For example, if pregnancy hormone changes left your face showing signs of aging, you can consider adding a facelift to your mommy makeover.
If your butt resembles a flat washboard, you may want a Brazilian butt lift. Together, with your surgeon, you can create a mommy makeover that addresses your body and gives you the contours and rejuvenation you want.
Save Money by Combining Procedures
When you choose to have plastic surgery, the cost of your procedure includes the surgeon’s fees, facility fees, anesthesia fees, post-surgical fees and the costs of implants. You incur these fees each time you have a procedure. However, when you combine procedures with a mommy makeover, many of these fees, such as for anesthesia and the facility, are only charged once, saving you money.
One Time under Anesthesia
Most plastic surgery and body contouring procedures require general anesthesia. Typically, general anesthesia uses a combination of intravenous drugs and inhaled gasses. Overall, general anesthesia is very safe. However, there are potential side effects.
Having multiple surgeries and undergoing anesthesia multiple times increases your risk of experiencing side effects. By combining procedures in a mommy makeover, you only go under anesthesia once.
Reduced Recovery Time
Imagine getting a tummy tuck at the beginning of the year and taking a few weeks off for recovery. Then, in the fall, having breast augmentation and needing a few more weeks off. As a mom, getting time to go to the bathroom alone is hard enough, let alone getting multiple weeks throughout the year for recovery.
By combining your procedures in a mommy makeover, you only have ONE recovery period, making it something an active mom might be able to work into a busy schedule.
Better Overall Results
When you get one procedure at a time, your surgeon focuses on the area of the body they are working on. When you choose to combine procedures, the surgeon takes your entire body into consideration and can perform operations to enhance your overall appearance, giving you a full-body transformation.
Increase Your Confidence and Self-Esteem
You have worked hard to get into shape, lose your baby weight and you feel good about being a mommy. However, skin stretching and hormonal changes from pregnancy altered your body and no matter how much you control your diet and follow an exercise routine, you aren’t happy with what you see in the mirror. This is possibly the biggest benefit of a mommy makeover.
Choosing procedures that help address pregnancy changes and give you the curves you desire is often what you need to give you back the self-confidence you may have lost. And improved self-esteem might even make you feel like a better mom too.
No matter who pays for your mommy makeover, the benefits will no doubt outweigh the cost. Even if Daddy doesn’t want to chip in, a mommy makeover can be the gift you give yourself this year.
