Bringing your newborn home from the hospital. Hearing her first words. Helping her learn to tie her shoes. There's no denying that motherhood is a rewarding experience. But what happened to the beautiful body you enjoyed before becoming a mom? If you're like a lot of women, pregnancy has left you with unwanted stretching, sagging, and extra pounds. In the past, women just accepted that they would have to give up some physical beauty to raise a family.
But now, you can be a mom and still look dazzling. If you've taken the time to take care of yourself, but some of your most persistent trouble spots just won't improve, consider your cosmetic surgery options. Dr. Wang offers a custom improvement plan to all of his patients, including moms who want a fresh, new look.
What Is A Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeovers involve restoring your body to its pre-baby beauty. For most women, this can be achieved through a combination of breast and body procedures. Dr. Wang sees excellent results when patients choose to combine these procedures-your flatter stomach will help emphasize your fuller breasts, and you'll be turning heads like never before.
Most mommy makeovers include some type of surgical correction in the abdominal area. If you have only a small area of belly fat, Dr. Wang may be able to slim the area using only liposuction . For larger fat deposits and loose skin, abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, can slim your profile and tighten your stomach muscles. Think of how much better your clothes will fit and how much sexier you'll feel with a flatter stomach.
Another popular part of the mommy makeover is a breast procedure to give you beautiful, shapely breasts. You will be able to discuss your needs with Dr. Wang during your consultation. Surgical options include breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, or a combined procedure. For instance, some moms never had much breast tissue, but now are ready for the breasts they've always wanted. Breast augmentation alone is a great choice for these women. For a mom who's gone through the cycle of increased breast size, nursing, breast shrinkage, and sagging, a combined lift and augmentation often achieves the desired look. There are more surgical options than ever before to revive and restore your breast appearance.
Taking the Time for Yourself
Many of the young moms who visit Dr. Wang's offices share similar concerns. Most of all, they're worried about taking time away from their families. Of course, surgery involves prep time, time for the procedure itself, and a recovery period while you get back to normal. In the meantime, your kids and other members of your household continue to need your care and support. Is it selfish to take some time for yourself? Absolutely not. The downtime during your surgery, while not insignificant, is only a short-term inconvenience for the long-term gains in your self-esteem, confidence, and improved outlook. Think of your surgery as an investment both in yourself and in your family, because so many of our mommy makeover patients report back that they have so much more energy and feel so much better about being a mom.
Another common concern is financing the surgery. As you know, raising a family costs a lot of money, and often there's just not much left over each month. With all the expenses and reasons to save, it may seem like cosmetic surgery is an unaffordable indulgence. But many patients find that the look they want is less expensive than they thought, and with several financing options available, it's easier than ever to work your new look into the family budget.
