It’s a well known fact that the birth of a child is a reason to celebrate, to feel joyful and happy. But a woman’s body also goes through a lot of changes, something that has a big emotional impact on the new mother. A lot more women who just had a baby feel that they need plastic surgery and statistics show that breast lifts, breast augmentations and tummy tucks were on top 5 requested cosmetic surgical procedures in 2015. The procedures already mentioned, plus liposuction, are what most moms usually choose, which lead to these procedures becoming the surgical pack named ‘the mommy makeover’.
But before women undergo these procedures, they should always do some research before, in order to know what to expect and to prepare their bodies for such an experience. Here are some of the things anyone who is thinking of getting a mommy makeover should take into consideration:
Plastic surgery prices depend on the city you’re having done said surgery and on who does it. You should always make sure that you can trust the doctor that will perform the surgery. If you go online, you can find most of the information you need. For example, Cosmos Clinic reviews are also available, in order for you to make a well-informed choice.
As we all know, surgery of any kind implies a certain amount of recovery time. Getting the mommy makeover means that you will be recovering from more than one procedure, which means you may be in a lot of pain. The recovery period requires that you have somebody helping around the clock, night and day, for at least a few days. It’s also very important that you make sure that around you there are people that can take care of your child (or children) for at least 7 days after your surgery.
If you decide to get a mommy makeover, you should know that another pregnancy may actually undo the procedures, tummy skin can stretch again, while breast lifts and breast implants done by areola incision may complicate breastfeeding, do to excess scar tissue. So, if you’re thinking about having another baby, maybe you should postpone the surgery.
Before you think about getting a mommy makeover, you should always keep in mind that surgery will never replace eating healthy and working out regularly. It is advised that after your pregnancy you should follow a balanced, healthy diet and a strict workout routine. Being fit will also increase your chances of getting the best results out of your procedures.
These are some of the things that will help you better understand what you should know before having a mommy makeover. While this decision will help you feel better and it will take care of the imperfection exercise can’t, it’s important that you should take this step while being well informed. Any major change in our lives needs to be well thought and well researched.
