Mommy makeovers are a chance to feel as though you’re a new woman after giving birth. While you may have loved being pregnant, it can be difficult to see yourself in a positive way when you look in the mirror post-pregnancy. With the help ofRachel Walker, MD, Plastic Surgery Center of Dallas, you can target the areas that are important to you.
There are many ways that you can get a makeover, though it’s important to realize that it’s not a way to simply circumvent diet and exercise. You’ll want to be healthy (and stay healthy) when you’re ready to get a bit of added help.
Discuss the Options You Have
You’re not feeling like yourself, so now what? Consider the areas you wish to target:
Your approach to a makeover may be very different than what another person wants. That’s why it’s important to work with a plastic surgeon to address your biggest concerns post-pregnancy. Whether you have loose skin, sagging breasts, or excess weight, it can be dealt with in a procedure that is personalized just for you.
As you explore what a makeover looks like for you, you’ll want to make sure that you understand some of the more common misconceptions.
- First, a tummy tuck is only one of the many procedures that you can choose from. Not everyone needs a tummy tuck, either.
- Second, you won’t want to have the surgery right after having a child. Consider whether you plan to have more kids, as your makeover may need to be postponed.
- Even if you do want more kids, there are some procedures that can be done right away to boost your confidence, while others can be completed once you’re sure you’re done with pregnancies.
- The most common misconception about mommy makeovers is the belief that these procedures are purely cosmetic in nature, completely ignoring the many important benefits for physical comfort and emotional well-being.
