WHAT IS A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding all place tremendous strain on a woman’s body, and often result in unwelcome aesthetic changes to the thighs, breasts and abdominal region. Caring for a newborn infant can be a physically exhausting undertaking, and trying to lose the weight gained during pregnancy while juggling a multitude of family responsibilities may seem like an overwhelming task. Compounding this difficult situation is the societal pressure placed on women to rapidly return to their pre-pregnancy physiques, and this pressure is exacerbated by the mainstream American media outlets, whose incessant praise for celebrities who have promptly shed their pregnancy weight can cause undue stress in a new mother’s life.
Fortunately, advances in cosmetic body contouring procedures have led to a wider variety of safe, effective body sculpting surgeries with shorter recovery periods, enabling busy mothers to enhance their physical appearance with minimal interruption to their hectic schedules. These procedures have become so popular among new mothers that the term “Mommy Makeover” was created to reflect the group of body surgeries most frequently sought after by women seeking to restore their pre-pregnancy shape. The rising “Mommy Makeover” trend reflects the fact that increasing numbers of women are realizing that taking the time to care for themselves is not an indication of selfishness or vanity, and also that the confidence-boosting effects of body contouring surgery can have a profoundly positive impact on the quality of their social and familial relationships.
