About Mommy Makeovers with SmartLipo
But what is a "Mommy Makeover "?
You've probably wondered if it's the answer you've been looking for to get your pre-pregnancy figure back. This short guide will explain what a mommy makeover is and help you decide if it's right for you.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a set of procedures that can give you a body makeover. For every plastic surgeon, the list of procedures can vary but here are the most common plastic surgery for moms:
- Laser fat removal from the buttocks, hips, love handles, thighs, or back
- Breast augmentation or breast lift with laser liposuction of the abdomen
- Liposculpture of the hips and abdomen with a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
- Abdominoplasty and breast augmentation or breast lift
You give so much of yourself to your children - from nights of lost sleep to eating last and even finding it hard to squeeze in a shower in between fulfilling your family's needs. But what about you? Mothers often times get lost in the long list of priorities.
A mommy makeover is for women who really understand their worth and want to do something special for themselves. And why not? You deserve it! There is no reason why you can't take care of yourself AND your children at the same time. We believe that you can have both. That's why we love to do mommy makeovers on our patients.
Reasons to Choose a Mommy Makeover
We're sure that you've noticed some major changes in your body, inside and out, after giving birth. If you have multiple children, these changes can be even more noticeable. It's when those changes bring self-consciousness, isolation and even depression that the first step needs to be taken to do something to change how you feel about yourself.
We know how devastating it is to be left with flabby abdominal muscles, loose skin, deposits of fat in all the wrong places and sagging breasts. Sadly, our patients say that it makes them avoid looking in the mirror. It pains us to see how badly they feel during their consultation.
On the other hand, it's the most wonderful feeling to see them at their final post-op appointment and take their "after" pictures wearing a huge smile on their face! We think it would be wonderful to have a Mommy Makeover NY fashion show so our patients can show off their new figures. How about that?!
We hear stories patients all time who have gotten back into their bikinis. Or single moms who have decided that they are no longer afraid to start dating again. Married moms tell us that the "spark" is back in their marriage. If you are unhappy with your body, a mommy makeover can help give you back the self confidence you once had.
Specific Areas that Can Be Fixed with Plastic Surgery for Moms
If you have any of the following: love handles, extra fat in your buttocks and hips, or what looks like a loose sack of skin on your lower abdomen, then a mommy makeover is right for you. With the technology we use today, our cosmetic surgery procedures can address any and all concerns you may have with your post-baby body.
Tummy tucks can get rid of extra skin and slack tummy muscles. The result is a smoothed, flattened and tightened tummy! By the way, if you have an umbilical hernia (a tear in the abdominal wall muscle) from your pregnancy, it can be repaired during your tummy tuck procedure.
Hips, thighs and buttocks that have not responded to diet and exercise are common in women who have had children. Hormones play a large role in why these stubborn areas of fat remain. Genetics can also play a role.
With SmartLipo laser liposuction body sculpting, your hips, thighs and buttocks can be reshaped to reveal a slimmer physique. Not only does the laser liposuction permanently remove fat cells from the targeted areas, it also tightens the collagen in the skin due to the heat emitted from the laser beam.
You'll look thinner, have tighter skin, and drop a few clothing sizes after the procedure. Who can say no to that?
Is it Selfish to Get a Mommy Makeover?
This is the number one reason why moms decide to put off having the procedure: they feel guilty for doing something for themselves. This couldn't be farther from the truth! When you feel beautiful and happy, you shine from the inside out and brighten your entire family. You are better able to enjoy life and share that enjoyment with your children.
We always say this to patients who feel like a mommy makeover would be selfish: "Isn't it true though that it's more selfish to go on feeling sad, depressed, and unhappy with yourself so that you can't give your best to your family?"
