Posted July 14, 2021 in Mommy Makeover
Over the course of his career, renowned plastic surgeon Scott Green has seen a rise in patients seeking mommy makeover. Part of the rise in popularity is due to referrals — women who have had mommy makeover tell their friends, who then become interested in contouring their bodies too. Here is why so many of Dr. Green’s patients love their mommy makeovers:
Restoring a Pre-Pregnancy Body
While plenty of women have faith in their ability to lose weight naturally after having children, many underestimate the extent to which their bodies change following pregnancy. Fat that used to come off easily with diet and exercise can now cling stubbornly to the stomach and thighs. The breasts are also likely to sag in a way they did not before breastfeeding.
If, like many women, you preferred the appearance of your body before pregnancy, then surgery is usually the most effective way to achieve your previous contours. Your friends are likely to marvel at how good you look even after birthing kids.
There is no single or correct approach to mommy makeover. Rather, “mommy makeover” is a catch-all term that refers to any combination of procedures that aesthetically improve a woman’s body. It is entirely up to you whether that includes breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck and/or liposuction. There is no pressure or expectation that you change anything about your body other than what will make you feel happier. After hearing the concerns you have about your own body, Dr. Green can recommend a surgical plan that will best address your self-described problem areas.
Overlapping Recovery Times
For most women, it is not easy to find time to take off from their job and responsibilities — especially when raising children — to recover from plastic surgery. The notion of setting aside a couple weeks to rest after one procedure and then finding additional time months down the line to undergo another procedure is less than ideal if not completely farfetched. By grouping multiple procedures at once, women can have the recovery periods run concurrently for far less downtime than would be required if they were done separately.
These days, society puts so much pressure on women to be amazing mothers and have a successful career. Oh, and if that were not enough, they should look great on top of that. While it is not necessarily fair to apply the traditional standards of beauty to women who have undergone significant biological changes that are known to accompany pregnancy, it certainly helps to boost your confidence to regain the kind of contours that others — and even more importantly, you — consider attractive.
