There’s no doubt about it — children change your life in many positive ways. But your body? Not so much. If your family is complete and you’re ready to get back your pre-baby body, a mommy makeover can help!
At OasisMD Lifestyle Healthcare, board-certified plastic surgeon James J. Chao, MD, helps our patients in San Diego, Encinitas, and Temecula, California, reclaim their bodies after childbearing with our mommy makeover services.
So you can better understand the benefits of a mommy makeover, our experienced team has put together this helpful guide. Read on to learn what you need to know about mommy makeovers and the benefits they offer.
A mommy makeover isn’t one procedure, but rather a customized group of services designed to restore your body after the wear-and-tear it goes through during pregnancy and nursing. At OasisMD, Dr. Chao and the team listen attentively to your aesthetic goals and create a personalized plan to help you achieve them.
Though a mommy makeover can be restorative and help you reclaim your pre-baby shape, it can also enhance your body, allowing you to choose the contours you want now, even if they aren’t the same as your pre-kids physique.
You can pick and choose the services you desire, but most mommy makeovers include one or more of the following:
After your mommy makeover, you’ll have bandages or gauze covering your incisions as you recover, and you may need to wear a support bra or bandages to provide added support to your breast tissue and minimize swelling and/or a compression garment to control swelling in other areas. Dr. Chao will provide you with detailed and customized post-procedure instructions.
The benefits of a mommy makeover are many, with one of the biggest being a boost to your self-confidence and self-esteem. The toll childbearing and nursing take on your body can make even the most confident woman feel concerned about her appearance.
There’s nothing more frustrating than dieting and exercising to reach your pre-baby weight only to see lasting changes that negatively impact your appearance. With a customized mommy makeover at OasisMD, your confidence will be restored, helping you feel great about the skin you’re in again.
Though improved self-confidence is impressive, that isn’t all a mommy makeover can do for you. Some of the other benefits of a mommy makeover include:
Regular exercise and a healthy diet are just two components of a healthy lifestyle and getting ready for bathing suit season. Many people work hard, restricting their diets and over-exercising without seeing results. An often-overlooked factor of well-being and weight loss is your hormones. Balancing your hormones can stimulate and regulate your metabolism, naturally raising your energy, show better results, and more weight loss. Your hormones even affect your body mass and mood.
