It may be time for that Mommy Makeover
I am starting to notice that the mommy makeover is becoming a very popular procedure that a few of my girlfriends are budgeting for these days. Being a Mom and having gone through a few brutal seasons of pregnancy I might need a little help from a local plastic surgeon here in the Washington DC area.
I started to do some research and found it imperative for all of us to understand that a Mommy Makeover is not a weight loss procedure. It is best suited for women that are in relatively good shape, so you still need to get your fat butt to the gym and eat right. Additionally, a Mommy Makeover would not be recommended for you if you still plan to get pregnant or you need to lose a significant amount of weight.
What is it?
The Mommy Makeover (check out WebMD) term is frequently used in describing the rejuvenation of a woman’s abdomen and breasts. Those are areas where I truly need help, and why I remain anonymous as I talk about all this personal information. Remember it’s more accurate and honest when I’m not worried about what you all think of me.
The primary goal of this procedure is addressing the frequent changes that happen with your body following multiple pregnancies. Your breasts sag like a 3-week old party balloon, your abdomen has that bulging look, there’s lots of excess skin and the stretching, oh the stretching.
I believe that, even as a desk-bound blogger of a woman, I’m in overall good health and would make a good candidate to undergo this procedure. However, even in good health, I have read that the procedure might be done in two stages. This will greatly depend on the number of areas that will need to be sculpted by your master cosmetic surgeon.
What happens during the procedure?
The abdomen and breasts are the major areas that will be under the attention of your surgeon. My breasts need a good lifting and inflating from all the volume lose. I might be a good candidate for implants. Those 3 to 4 daily meals took a toll working harder than Gordon Ramsey in Hells Kitchen. On the other hand, if your breasts have become excessively large and are causing you some level of discomfort they can be reduced to a comfortable size.
Addressing the saggy stretchy abdomen can be done with an abdominoplasty procedure. This is where your muscles will be tightened to strengthen your midsection and slightly narrow your waist. The might also tighten the excess skin on your lower abdomen to remove the stretch marks.
Best time for a Mommy Makeover
If you are planning to bring home more little angels to run around the house, it is best if you wait a while especially if you underwent the abdominoplasty procedure. Nevertheless, not to worry, it is possible to get pregnant after an abdominoplasty. Just consult your doctor, for I imagine the final results will not to look as good. I think this is obvious since the tissues in your abdominal will be stretched again due to the pregnancy. And we don’t need you turning into a plastic surgery horror show leaving you bound to a one-piece bathing suit the rest of your life.
Really plan this out for the best results. You want to look great and sexy again. Make sure you are done with making munchkins and that you have gotten yourself in reasonably good shape and have achieved a desirable and stable weight. With that done, start trolling your Facebook friends for a good recommendation for a top-notch plastic surgeon.
