3 Essential Components Of A Successful Mommy Makeover

by Freddie Cox

Modern mothers who want to gain their pre-baby good looks back as quickly as possible have significantly more options that their counterparts of the past. From laser skin resurfacing techniques to breast augmentation, many choices exist for those who want to customize their own mommy makeover with the help of skilled professionals. Here are three procedures for you to consider when developing your plan to bounce back from motherhood better than ever:

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Although many people associate mommy makeovers with surgical techniques that focus on the breasts and midsection, facial skin can also benefit from some attention during this time. Pregnancy can cause changes in the epidermis that can leave facial skin blotchy as well as cause it to prematurely sag. Laser strengths and techniques vary, but the newer technologies involve much less downtime than they did in the past. Other benefits of laser skin resurfacing include:

  • Removal of acne scars. If you've ever longed for a smooth, scar-free complexion, now's the time to get it!
  • General skin tightening. Laser treatment can restore that toned and refreshed look to your skin.

Laser skin resurfacing can be combined with other skin restoration procedures such as Botox injections to minimize fine lines and Juvaderm implants to replace lost plumpness.Thoroughly discussing your desired outcome with your surgeon and making a customized plan will acheive best results.

Breast Augmentation

Breasts often become saggy or lose shape after childbirth, making breast augmentation an attractive option for women who want to regain their pre-baby appearance. Breast augmentation is not only performed to increase breast size -- it's also an excellent way to restore symmetry to breasts where one has grown larger than the other. Those who've had this surgery perfomed report that their clothing fits better and that their bodies are more proportional. Breast augmentation techniques include:

  • Fat transfers. This is where fat is taken from another part of the body and used to restore breast size and shape.
  • Silicone gel implants. These consist of a silicone shell that is filled with silicone gel.
  • Saline implants. These also have an outer silicone shell, but they are filled with sterile salt water rather than with silicone gel.

You surgeon will be able to help you decide which option is best for your personal situation. If your breast size or shape didn't significantly change as a result of childbirth, you might want to consider having a simple breast lift to counteract any normal amount of sagging that has occurred.

Tummy Tuck

Most women report that even with substantial dieting and exercise, their abdomen areas continue to sag long after giving birth. The skin in the stomach area is significantly stretched during pregnancy, so it comes as no surprise that sagging is a common problem. Tummy tucks provide an excellent solution for those who are self-conscious about a protruding stomach,and like breast augmentation, they'll help make clothing fit better. You are a good candidate for having a tummy tuck if the following conditions apply:

  • You are relatively slender and maintain a stable weight. This procedure is not recommended for obese individuals.
  • You are finished having children. A future pregnancy has the potential to undo the procedure.
  • You do not smoke. Smoking slows the healing process down significantly.

Naturally, surgical procedures should never be considered alternatives to paying attention to nutrition and getting the right amount of exercise. However, a personalized mommy makeover can certainly help you to make the absolute most of the good looks that nature gave you! Finding a competent, skilled surgeon is the first step having a successful mommy makeover, so be sure to ask friends and family for recommendations if you don't already have a surgeon in mind.

Ever since I was a young girl, I have had bad asthma and allergies. I had to stay in the hospital several times when I was in elementary school just to help get my asthma under control and it seemed like I was trying medication after medication with little success. I don't remember all of my childhood health details, since I was so young, but my mother has "filled in the blanks" for me. Thanks to modern medicine and a natural remedy, my health conditions are currently under control and have been for a few years now. I am very grateful for my good health, and I want to "pay it back" to others by creating a blog where I will post my health tips. I hope I can help you learn how to achieve good health!
