Having a baby can be one of the most amazing adventures in your life. Welcoming a new child into your world is wonderful, but it is also exhausting. Women sacrifice many things when having a baby, including careers, time, and even their bodies.
It does not have to be this way, however. Mommy makeovers after having a baby have become one of the best ways to get your body, and your confidence, back to where you want it to be. Here are the types of procedures that moms have done.
Non-Invasive Nose Surgery
Commonly referred to as a non-surgical nose job, non-invasive nose surgery can be one way to help boost your confidence. Through the use of dermal fillers, any imperfections that might be bothering you with your nose can be easily and virtually painlessly corrected, giving you the nose you have always hoped for.
One of the most common procedures to have done after having children, a breast augmentation can really boost your confidence. During pregnancy, the fatty tissue in your breasts is replaced with enlarged milk glands, preparing your body for feeding a baby in the future. If you did not breastfeed or are done breastfeeding, the glands will reduce back to a small size, leaving extra room in your breast, resulting in a saggy appearance. A breast augmentation can help fill that space back in, returning you to your pre-baby appearance.
Whether you had a cesarean section or natural childbirth, you still carried your baby in your abdomen, stretching the skin and muscles out. As a result, there might be some changes to the skin and even the fat of your tummy after having a baby. While you would never want to jump right into having a tummy tuck, since you should let your skin tighten up on its own first, a tummy tuck can give you the smooth belly you once had.
All women gain weight during pregnancy. After all, you build a whole human inside of your body. Combined with hormones, your body is going to naturally increase fat, especially around your midsection and hips. The result is known as love handles. If these stubborn fatty areas are not budging with diet and exercise, liposuction surgery can remove the excess stubborn fat, returning you back to your pre-baby body.
If you are considering having a cosmetic procedure to help regain your confidence after having a baby, you will need to make several considerations.
- Are you done having children? If you are planning on having more children, it is best to wait on surgery until after you are done having children.
- Have you given yourself a chance to recover? While it is frustrating to not immediately return to your previous appearance after childbirth, it can take six months to a year for your body to recover. Sometimes your body should be given a chance to heal itself first.
- Have you tried diet and exercise? In the cases of liposuction and tummy tucks, you should make sure that you are in good shape before having the procedure in order to get the best results.
The first thing that you need to do is call a plastic surgeon to schedule a consultation. Together, you can go over all of your concerns and make a plan to rebuild your confidence.
