After childbirth some women feel that they are not quite themselves. The long months of sacrifice and careful care for the sake of their baby has taken its toll on their bodies. They have lost much of the toned youthfulness that they once prided themselves on. It is often the case that they are saddened or disappointed that their image outside does not reflect the joy that they feel on the outside. Today there is a new series of cosmetic surgery procedures, called mommy makeovers, which are specifically targeted at mothers.
Mothers often end up spending a large part of their time and energy on nurturing and caring for their families. They are committed to creating happy and healthy environments for their children and it often comes at the expense of their own bodies. Many women after their years of care and nurture have lovely well-formed children and a flabby stomach, sagging breasts and several years of quick-lunches-between-soccer-practices hanging around their midsection to show for it. This is why there has been an increasing trend for women to have a type of cosmetic surgery called a mommy makeover.
The first thing that ladies get done is repairing the effects of carrying and nursing children. Pregnancy and breast-feeding wreak havoc on the tummies and breasts of women. Usually they have a tummy tuck, a breast lift and perhaps augmentation, and also some sort of chemical peel or dermabrasion to address and minimize stretch marks.
In addition to correcting just the direct physical damage caused by pregnancy and young children many mothers choose to have some cosmetic surgery to correct the effects of years of mothering. These problems include excess fat, drooping eyelids from aging, worry lines and wrinkles. For these issues, some moms choose to have liposuction and liposculpture to deal with the extra fat, eyelid surgery to deal with the bags and sagging eyes, and facelifts to tighten the face.
This cosmetic surgery appeals to mothers of all ages but particularly to those in their thirties and forties. It is great for moms who although they still can't seem to get to their pre-pregnancy bodies regardless of diet and exercise. It is important to be healthy and in good shape before considering any of these operations.
The best part about the growing popularity of these procedures is that many cosmetic surgery offices recognize the desire that people have and are creating packages for moms. This way they take less time out for their busy schedules and have multiple complementary operations at the same time. Additionally, some of the more minor and less invasive procedures like chemical peels and eyelid surgeries can be done as outpatient treatments allowing the woman to leave the same day. Regardless of what collection of treatments a lady opts for, she is sure to leave feeling younger and happier than she has in years.
