For many women, nothing compares to the joy motherhood brings. But there is no denying that it can also be one of the most physically difficult stages in a woman’s life.
After childbirth it can be difficult for some women to regain their pre-baby body weight. Even when an optimum body weight is restored after a lot of hard work, women notice their body has been changed by pregnancy.
Every woman is affected by pregnancy and childbirth to a different degree, but the most notable changes take place in the breasts and abdomen. These changes can also be accompanied by emotional concerns regarding their self-image.
The mummy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures done to help you get your pre-baby body back. It can include a mix of tummy tuck (to remove loose skin and regain firmness) and breast enhancement (which can include breast lift and/or breast augmentation). Liposuction could also be added to help with body contouring.
Over the last ten years, procedures relating to the ‘mummy makeover’ have risen in popularity. Women’s attitudes about cosmetic surgery have changed, and mothers today are not only more open to seeking surgical assistance with their cosmetic goals, but are also seeking that assistance at a younger age. They don’t want to wait years to re-establish how they used to look. They want their pre-baby bodies back now and they’re not afraid to acknowledge that they may need a little help beyond a healthy diet and exercise.
Although many critics of cosmetic plastic surgery argue that these procedures are a way of making money, they fail to appreciate the fact that diet and physical exercises cannot fully repair changes such as stretch marks and sagging breasts, yet mummy makeover surgeries can re-sculpt women’s bodies back to their initial natural shape. These procedures restore smiles and self-esteem in women by enabling them to un-do the unwanted changes from pregnancy.
