The Truth Behind Mommy MakeoversJuly 10, 2018
Mommy makeovers may no longer come new to most ears and eyes and even to yours if you love watching television shows and programs. Usually, the idea of a mommy makeover is one that is comprised of a former beauty queen mom who has turned frumpy with bad hair and in sweat pants after having kids and now cannot find the time to take care of herself. The talk show team usually invites these women to their show, removes the crust from their eyes, takes them shopping, and has some famous hairstylist and makeup artist work their magic on the women. The big reveal then shows the true beauty of the mom in a shocking revelation where every guest in the audience cries. Well, what do you expect? This is television, people. Producers of talk shows and other TV programs do not really pick ugly people to begin with.
The example just stated above is what experts refer to as lower case mommy makeovers. Yes, it can be fun and it can be cute. But after the show, most likely, the mom will just go back to using her sweat pants and be prepared for the next day’s carpool. So, what really comprises the ultimate mommy makeover? If you ask experts and plastic surgeons what a real mommy makeover is, they consider it a process that is upper case, life changing, and genuinely rewarding. There are various procedures that are involved in one. They could include a combination of liposuction, tummy tuck, breast lift, and breast augmentation or any combination for that matter. Any combination will basically do as long as the woman is able to get back the body that she once had before having children.
Can you still get your pre-pregnancy body back with the right diet plan and exercise routines?
Each person is unique. There are some diet and exercise efforts that actually work while there are some that do not. If possible, you should try following any diet plan and exercise routine after you give birth. For some plastic surgeons, they even advise their patients to wait at least 6 months after giving birth or more before they opt to have any plastic surgery done on them. Let your body recover first by using less invasive methods. And as you decide to proceed getting a mommy makeover, your surgical results and recovery time may even be better with your current fitness levels.
What is the recovery period like after getting a mommy makeover?
After undergoing a mommy makeover, within the first 2 to 3 days, you must get consistent help when it comes to staying hydrated, keeping up with your pain medication schedule, getting in and out of bed, and so on. It would be best if you secure a room at a post-op care institution. Such facilities are equipped with the necessary experience and equipment to assist surgical patients during recovery.
The next 3 to 5 days, you can spend them in a hotel or house where a caregiver can help you in cleaning, eating, taking care of the kids, or do some girl talk. If you work in an office, make sure that within 10 and 14 days after your surgery, you stay at home first. However, if you have the more physical kind of job, you can stay at home longer.
