It’s envy and a little bit of guilt mixed together, making you ask, “Why can’t I have a body like that?” Celebrities and our cultural obsession with how they look so great can lead many regular women to feel betrayed by their bodies after pregnancy when they don’t bounce back in the same way.

An Altered Timeline

Sometimes you’ll read a headline about a famous female losing her baby weight in just four weeks following the birth of her baby. You might be several months, or even years, postpartum and realize that your body hasn’t regained its original pre-baby look. This expedited celebrity timeline is unfair to many women because there are several factors, mainly hormonal, that prevent your body from getting rid of fat. For celebrity women, it is often their job to go back to looking great as quickly as possible. Chances are, you don’t have the same support system of cooks, personal trainers, and nannies that allow you to focus your energy on losing the weight quickly.

You Can’t Fight Genetics

Before and After Mommy Makeover by Dr. Scott GreenMany celebrities also have it pre-programmed into their genes to lose their baby weight. Your genes influence factors like skin laxity and abdominal separation. It is unfair to expect your body to react and work the same as somebody else’s. For many moms, diet and exercise cannot treat flabby skin, abdominal separation, and stretch marks. You shouldn’t feel like you are failing to correct something that is out of your control.

Achieve the Physique You Want

All of this isn’t to say that you are doomed to have a body that makes you unhappy. Every woman deserves to have a physique that makes her feel happy, sexy, and confident. This may mean that you need more than the traditional gym and diet regimen.

The Mommy Makeover

The Mommy Makeover is the most efficient way to sculpt the new, revived figure you desire. By using a combination of breast and body procedures, Dr. Green can treat the common concerns you have post-pregnancy. Breast lift surgery addresses sagging after nursing, while breast augmentation can restore lost breast volume. A tummy tuck tightens loose abdominal muscles, and liposuction eliminates stubborn fat deposits.

Don’t judge yourself based on impossible celebrity perfection. Focus on having a body that makes you look and feel beautiful. To learn more, call Dr. Green at (916) 929-1833 today! He uses his extensive training, experience, and artistic eye to understand and create the beautiful body you desire.
