Having a baby should not equate to feeling poorly about your body shape after delivery. A mommy makeover can involve a number of procedures that help you get your 'old' body back in shape after delivery. While diet and exercise works for some, others may need a little help getting back their pre-pregnancy shape or figure. Several options are available for a mommy makeover, with procedures offered by plastic and cosmetic surgeons.
Any mother, new or ‘old’ deserves to look and feel her best. Following childbirth and child-rearing, many women want to get their ‘old bodies’ back, but time constraints and other obligations make regular exercise difficult. A Mommy Makeover helps women look and feel better at a time in their life when they want to feel – and look – their best.
Tummy tucks, breast reductions, liposuction, liposuction alternatives and genital rejuvenation are just a few choices women may make. Some other common makeover options include:
Genital rejuvenation techniques may help repair damage caused by the birth process as well as tighten skin over vaginal openings as well as the labia. Tummy tucks are common for many women following post-natal efforts to get rid of that 'baby pooch' and the stretched bulge of skin left over following birth.
For many new mom's, skin is blemished, stretched, wrinkled or marred by stretch marks. A mommy makeover can deal with all these issues and more.
Sagging stomachs and drooping breasts are the main reasons why many women opt for cosmetic or plastic surgical procedures in the first few years follow a birth, or after a woman has decided she's not going to have any more children.
Self-esteem, appearance and looking older than one really is are also main reasons why so many women today are opting for mommy makeovers. Actually, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgery (or ASPS), nearly 40 % of the nearly 10 million women in the U.S. alone were less than 40 years of age, and nearly 30% of them were under 30 years of age.
Genitoplasty, which deals with rejuvenation or plastic surgery to the major and minor labia, are also common with women following childbirth. Tummy tucks by moms has increased from less than53,000 in the last six years to well over 100,000 procedures a year, while buttocks lifts has increased over 150%!
The cost of a mommy makeover naturally depends on what you're having done. However, a tummy tuck and breastwork may cost $13,000 to $20,000 or more in the U.S., depending on the facility you go to, your geographic location, and the extent of work you choose. New or older moms traveling to Asian destinations like Singapore and Thailand can save 30% to 50% on the same surgical procedures, and enjoy a well-deserved vacation at the same time.
Choosing a qualified plastic surgeon to perform your mommy makeover is important. The surgeon you choose should be a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons or a Society of Plastic Surgeons in the country of origin. Surgeries should be performed in an accredited facility. Surgeons should be trained in at least two years of plastic surgery that includes procedures not limited to reconstruction, body, and breast augmentation procedures. A cosmetic surgeon should be board-certified by medical organizations and associations in their country of origin. Look for facilities that have JCI (Joint Commission International) accreditation to ensure the quality of care.
