With a little prep work, a Mommy Makeover could be in your future!
Great job, mama! You’re giving your all to being a mom every day – just remember to leave a little time and energy for yourself once in a while. You’ve been struggling with your weight and body image since before you were even pregnant, and now caring for your own health and wellbeing has become a distant memory. Though your self-confidence definitely needs a boost, surgery might not be the answer right away. You may also be struggling with other issues such as self-worth or trouble with your personal relationships. A Mommy Makeover isn’t a magical fix for any of these things! It’s vital to work on the things about yourself that are in your power to fix first before embarking on a Mommy Makeover journey to a healthier, happier you.
You’ll get the best results from a Mommy Makeover if you’ve done all you can to lose lingering baby weight and get in the best physical shape possible. That doesn’t mean training for a marathon in between diaper changes, but it does mean doing what you can to work some regular exercise into your life! When you’ve worked to lose weight and get fitter first, then we can pinpoint areas that can’t be fixed by diet and exercise alone. The better shape you’re in at the get-go, the quicker and easier you’re going to recover, the less pain you’re going to experience, and the better results you’re going to get.
Having realistic expectations for a Mommy Makeover is crucial. It can’t save your marriage, it’s not weight-loss surgery, it won’t turn back the clock 20 years – in short, it’s not magic. Also, think through the practical implications of having plastic surgery, such as taking time off work and having a caregiver during recovery, or even considering whether you’re really done having kids. Once you’ve prepared mentally and physically, you’ll be ready for all the challenges and the victories that encompass a Mommy Makeover!
