Summary: Dr. James Koehler discusses the benefits of a mommy makeover for Alabama women, and how they can help meet your New Year’s resolution of looking your best.
Most mothers notice significant changes in their body shape after one and especially multiple births. From weight gain in the hips and waist to sagging of breast tissue, motherhood can transform your body. That’s why many moms have turned to the increasingly popular mommy makeover as a solution.
As we start off a new year, a resolution many women make is to improve their health, and that can include making cosmetic changes like a mommy makeover, which can help to restore a natural and youthful figure. When combined with weight-loss resolutions and increased exercise, a mommy makeover can help you look your absolute best.
Are You a Candidate?
A good candidate for a mommy makeover is any woman in relatively good physical health who has finished with her child-rearing years and wants to improve her figure and regain a more youthful look. Common procedures included as part of a mommy makeover are breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, liposuction and other cosmetic surgeries.
The women most likely to see the best mommy makeover results have also attained a stable weight, have a generally positive outlook and have realistic expectations about their likely outcome.
Reaching Your Goals
Even the most committed diet and exercise routine can’t help problems like excess skin or droopy breasts. A mommy makeover builds on your existing foundation of eating right and staying active to fine-tune your figure in additional ways:
- A tummy tuck removes loose skin in the belly and repairs separated or stretched-out abdominal muscles
- Breast implants can add volume to deflated breasts for a fuller, more voluptuous figure
- A breast lift can lift and reshape a saggy or fallen bust line, along with reducing areola size and correcting downward-pointing nipples if needed
- Breasts that feel disproportionately large compared to the rest of your frame can be reduced during breast reduction
- Liposuction smoothes away isolated problem areas like the love handles for a slimmer, more streamlined look
- Med spa treatments can help reduce signs of stress, sun damage and aging through the face, giving you a more radiant complexion
Working closely with your cosmetic surgeon can help you adopt a customized approach toward meeting your personal goals, whether that means looking younger with the help of a little BOTOX® or emphasizing your natural hourglass.
A New Look for the New Year
A mommy makeover won’t perform miracles, but can greatly assist in providing a head-to-toe makeover that can enhance your natural appearance and complement other efforts to lose weight, eat right, get healthy and otherwise improve your overall quality of life. When combined with exercise, a nutritious diet and a good attitude, a mommy makeover can be a great springboard mothers can use to improve their appearance and feel great about their post-baby bodies again.
A mommy makeover can also help career-minded women who are returning to the professional world this year after raising their children. A strong mental disposition complemented by a youthful appearance and rejuvenated figure can mean a boost of self-confidence that shines out during even the toughest interview. Plus, investing time and care back into yourself can help recharge your batteries after giving so much emotionally and physically to your role as a wife and mother, and that sounds like the perfect start for a great upcoming year.
