Mommy Makeover

Motherhood is perhaps the most important and significant event in a woman´s lives.

With the happiness of children, also come some problems to the body that can´t be corrected with diet and exercise.

In a recent poll, when moms were asked what they would like as a mother´s day gift, most of them answerded that, if they could afford it, they wanted a TUMMY TUCK and a BREAST LIFT or BREAST AUGMENTATION.

According to data from ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) Tummy tucks and breast lifts have increased almost double in numbers. Women are not afraid to accept that even tough they love their children, they wish their bodies look the way they were before pregnancy. They admit the need for a little help other that just diet and exercise. The age of the procedures have also started earlier from the fifties to the thirties (even twenties in our population), because they ask themselves: why should I wait to look great if I can look good now that I´m still young?

Also, plastic surgery is more socially accepted; techniques and technology have made surgery safer and recovery faster.

Thank to this, moms can improve not only their looks , but their attitudes towards their children, their significant others and society in general.

These three procedures are the ones considered most frecuently as “mommy makeover”, but we frecuently combine them with BUTT AUGMENTATION with your own fat (BRAZILIAN or BAJA BUTT), VAGINAL RECONSTRUCTION, etc.

If you are considering a Mummy Makeover, the ASPS recomends this tips:

1. Wait 6 to 12 months after your last baby
2. Be specific about your goals so your surgeon can recommend you the best procedure for you
3. If you are losing weight , for an optimal result, do so before undergoing surgery.
4. Ask to see pictures of recent work from your surgeon
5. Go to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
