Whether you’re a new mommy or a seasoned one, you’ve probably heard of someone you know undergoing a Mommy Makeover. What is it? It’s a set of procedures that aim to treat and reverse the negative effects of pregnancy and nursing on the body. The most popular procedures for a Mommy Makeover include breast procedures, like a breast augmentation, lift, or reduction, a tummy tuck, and liposuction. Since every woman’s body is different, this procedure is completely customizable.

Although it’s an invasive, surgical procedure, Mommy Makeovers are highly effective at restoring your pre-pregnancy body. Here are some reasons you might consider one:

Diet and Exercise Might Not Cut It

While a healthy lifestyle is a great thing, there are certain things it just can’t fix. Things like stretched, excess skin or stubborn fat deposits that occur during pregnancy can be there permanently. A Mommy Makeover can remove these, as well as stretch marks— it can also repair muscles that have become lax and ineffective at supporting the abdomen or pelvic area. These are long-term results that can recreate your healthy, contoured profile without the struggle of feeling like you can’t get results, no matter what.

You Don’t Have Any More Plans for Childbearing

While the results of a Mommy Makeover can be permanent and life-changing, they can also be reversed by another pregnancy. If you’re already considering a Mommy Makeover, this will be something you’ll need to discuss during your consultation. However, if you’re no longer planning on further pregnancy and are taking steps to avoid it, a Mommy Makeover can be a great way to feel like you’ve got your body back. Although you’ll never stop being a mommy, your body doesn’t always have to feel like a post-baby body.

You Deserve It

Birthing a child is hard, and it doesn’t stop there. But, that doesn’t mean you’re destined to feeling like you’ll never have your body back. Pregnancy can be one of the most drastic changes a woman’s body undergoes over the course of her life, and after all the difficulty and reward that goes with birthing and raising a child, any mommy deserves to feel her best and like herself again. A Mommy Makeover can restore confidence and the feeling of being desirable to mommies who feel like there are no options.

If you’re considering a tummy tuck, you probably suffer from loose and sagging skin in the abdominal area. While a tummy tuck can remove this excess tissue for immediate results, this is a procedure that with require a little maintenance! Read on for some tips on how to maintain your tummy tuck results!

Eat Healthy

Individuals should reduce their intake of simple carbohydrates such as rice, bread, and pasta, as well as sugars and saturated fats. Focusing on eating better, not less is the key. Fresh fruits, veggies, whole grains, healthy fats, and lean proteins are all good choices to maintain a healthy physique.

Many patients find that eating several smaller meals throughout the day rather than three large meals helps to maintain energy levels and reduces the need to eat snacks between meals. This can help to avoid overeating throughout the day.

Stay Hydrated

Staying hydrated is key to maintaining a healthy metabolism, controlling hunger, and aiding in digestion. Each individual requires a different amount of water throughout the day, though starting with eight 8-ounce glasses a day is a good start.

Get Moving

After you are fully healed from your tummy tuck procedure, it is important to exercise regularly to maintain your results. Focusing on exercises that strengthen your core can really help to ensure long-lasting results. According to the Mayo Clinic, the average healthy adult needs at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous activity a week, and strength training at least two times a week.
