A mother gives lots of love and attention to her children to ensure they thrive. Oftentimes, women with children pour effort and time into raising children while neglecting their own desires and needs. They may begin to feel self-conscious about their body’s appearance after pregnancies and breastfeeding lead to physical changes. Mothers should feel confident and comfortable in their own skin in order to set a good example for their children. Dr. Jason Stubbs is a facial plastic and full body cosmetic surgeon serving Grand Rapids, Holland, Grandville, or Grand Haven, Michigan and the surrounding communities, and he has a perfect solution for you: mommy makeover surgery, which will restore your body to its pre-pregnancy glory.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancy creates unwanted changes to a woman’s body parts, including:
- The abdomen
- The hips
- The thighs
- The breasts
Each woman is affected differently by pregnancy, depending on these factors:
- Weight gain
- Number of pregnancies
- Twin or triplet births
- Pre-pregnancy physical condition
Most women experience permanent body changes after pregnancies that include:
- Loss of abdominal muscle tone
- Stretch marks
- Breast deflation or droop
- Excess fat and skin on the abdomen
Many mothers experience guilt about electing cosmetic surgery to help return their figure to one’s pre-pregnancy condition. When Dr. Stubbs meets with women for consultations, they often apologize about their requests, but we remind them there is absolutely nothing selfish or wrong about wanting to have a mommy makeover procedure. The mothers that visit our facility put others’ needs ahead of their own while putting themselves last. However, how a mother feels about herself as a wife and woman is a vital part of her self-esteem and body image. It is not vain or self-centered for a mom to want to feel sexy, confident and youthful by taking care of herself with a cosmetic procedure.
A mommy makeover is a set of procedures that focuses on rejuvenating a woman’s abdomen, breasts, and other body areas after she has completed childbearing. While most women want to have their pre-pregnancy bodies back, it is also possible for them to look better than they did before having children. Our mommy makeover patients are uniformly thrilled with the results of their procedures, and we recommend looking at our testimonial section to read about our patients’ experiences in their own words.
A few fortunate women do not need an extensive surgical procedure to feel rejuvenated after completing their pregnancies. Non-surgical rejuvenation of the body, skin or face is appropriate for some mothers while other patients need both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments. For more details concerning skin rejuvenation cosmetic procedures, please look at that section of our website.
