Oh, mama! ... Mothers get their shapely pre-pregnancy bodies back thanks to “Mommy Makeovers”

Moms are known for being selfless. For always making sacrifices for the sake of their children. It’s been written that “a mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.” So true.

Many mothers will half-jokingly tell you that the first sacrifice they ever made for their child was their figures. Notice we said “half-jokingly.” Whether they want to openly admit it or not, most females are concerned about the toll that childbirth will take on their bodies.

Pregnancy and childbirth do indeed transform a woman’s body in many ways. And sometimes these transformations cannot be easily undone. You can diet and exercise to try to lose your pregnancy weight — and it may work for you (it may not) — but biologically speaking there are some body issues — like the loose skin you have at your tummy and breasts that have lost their volume — that you will not ever be able to reverse on your own. But it’s not a lost cause. You can get help to regain your pre-pregnancy body … with a “Mommy Makeover.”

A “Mommy Makeover” is the nickname given in recent years to the collection of cosmetic surgeries that can help women improve the appearance of their bodies after pregnancy. These procedures include body sculpting … breast augmentation … breast lift… breast reduction … liposuction … and tummy tuck. By having one of these — or some combination of procedures — you can easily improve the appearance of your body after pregnancy. The successful results these makeovers achieve have made them very popular in the last decade.

So if you love motherhood and all it entails — except for those unsightly stretchmarks … excess abdominal fat that you just can’t seem to lose … or breasts that have been misshapen from breastfeeding — a “Mommy Makeover” sounds like a good solution for you.
