There are very few things as beautiful and fulfilling as having a child. In fact, many mothers would say it is the single best thing they have ever done. But with all the love and joys that come with a new addition to the family, pregnancy can also bring some less-desired changes to the mother’s body. The plastic surgery procedure often called the “Mommy Makeover” is designed to fix these changes and restore the body to its pre-pregnancy condition. However, misconceptions can scare away women from taking part in the treatment. So for all the mothers out there, it’s time we set the record straight about the Mommy Makeover.
Myth 1: You Can Get the Results You Want with Diet & Exercise
Unfortunately, while diet and exercise can aid you in restoring your figure, pregnancy takes a toll on your body that only surgery can fix. This is why so many mothers are turning to the Mommy Makeover procedure in combination with diet and exercise to restore their figure.
Myth 2: It Leaves Unsightly Scarring
Scarring used to be a legitimate concern when undergoing plastic surgery. Fortunately, there have been so many advances in the field that it is very unlikely for a patient to be left with noticeable scars. Less invasive procedures and precise incisions allow for minimal scarring, ensuring your body looks exactly the way you want.
Myth 3: It’s Too Many Different Surgeries
A range of different procedures can be used for the Mommy Makeover. These include breast enhancement, breast lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction. However, the treatment rarely requires every single one. Depending on your goals, you can choose to undergo only the surgeries you want. This means you are able to specifically target the face or other parts of the body, and can determine the combination of procedures that will give you the best results possible.
