Mommy makeovers are cosmetic surgery procedures that help boost women’s confidence, rejuvenate their appearance, and repair damaged muscle and skin that can occur during pregnancy and birth. Mommy makeovers have been around for many years, but have recently seen resurgence in popularity. Here are some things you need to know about this popular cosmetic trend.
Why are mommy makeovers in demand?
As plastic surgery techniques and technology improve, so do the results. Cosmetic surgery is not just for the rich and famous anymore. Procedures are aimed at maximizing individual beauty rather than creating one standard aesthetic. A mommy makeover doesn’t mean transforming into a Barbie doll, but rather looking like a more refreshed, fitter version of you.
Many mothers also find that it is impossible to repair damaged muscles and skin after giving birth one or many times. Exercise and diet cannot always make visible improvements, but plastic surgery can help tighten and fix the physical trauma caused by the birthing process. Being in better physical shape gives mothers the energy and confidence they need to take care of their children, families, and tackle on their many other responsibilities.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
What constitutes a mommy makeover varies by individual and plastic surgeon practices, but generally it describes a combination of procedures most commonly aimed at repairing post pregnancy bodies, but can include treating problems related to ageing as well. The most common procedures involved in mommy makeovers are tummy tucks liposuction, breast lift or augmentation, and facial fillers.
What are the benefits of a mommy makeover?
This procedure is a great way for overworked and stressed mothers to put themselves first for once. Cosmetic surgery can help boost confidence and self-esteem, as well as help women feel younger. It can help a woman feel rejuvenated and better prepared to deal with the difficulties of raising a family.
Choosing a mommy makeover can also be a wiser budget option. There are not anymore inherent risks with having multiple surgeries at once, which means you will save on recovery time and can get back to work sooner than if you were to have separate procedures. Many plastic surgeons also offer lower prices for combination packages as it also is more cost effective for them.
What are the costs?
How much a mommy makeover costs will depend on the individual, area, and plastic surgeon? They can rage anywhere from $5,000 to $20,000 depending on the extent of the surgery. There will also be recovery costs as well as medication, hospital stay (if necessary), transportation, and in some cases aftercare.
When is a good time to get a mommy makeover?
Be sure that you are financially ready as well as have ample time to rest and recover in peace. Most recoveries last at least two weeks, but may require as much as three to four depending on how many procedures you have at once and what they entail.
It’s important to have a close friend or relative available initially to help you with daily activities. If you have many small children who require a lot of attention, you may want to hire some temporary help or have a friend keep them occupied so they aren’t tempted to disturb you.
