If there’s one thing that many moms have in common it’s that they’re always putting everyone else’s needs ahead of their own – it’s what moms do and they don’t mind either. 

A mommy makeover gives women the chance to do something big for themselves. It’s a procedure that moulds you in all the right places, leaving you with a shapelier appearance that you feel more confident about.

 Many women are lead to believe that cosmetic surgery is about vanity but this isn’t the case. Countless women make the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery for a number of different reasons, many of which are not related to aesthetics at all. It’s a personal choice and one that you should make confidently. 

If you think that a mommy makeover might be right for you, here are a few basic things you should know.

Must-Know Info If You’re Considering a Mommy Makeover

According to Plastic Surgery Adelaide, these are the most important facts about mommy makeovers.

1. Multiple procedures are performed at the same time

A mommy makeover is made up of several different procedures and you get to design your surgery. These procedures are performed together because it lowers costs as well as recovery time. Some of the most common surgeries that are included are arm lifts, breast augmentation, liposuction, breast lifts and tummy tucks. Some women also choose to add on smaller procedures such as cosmetic injections and skin treatments for a dramatic change. 

2. You can still have children afterwards

Mommy makeovers tend to be more popular amongst women who have completed their families but this doesn’t have to be the case. You will still be able to have children after your mommy makeover but as you can imagine, this will affect the results of your surgery.

3. Mommy makeovers offer health benefits too

When you feel good about your appearance, it’s only natural to want to maintain your new shape. Mommy makeovers encourage women to make positive lifestyle changes that will benefit their physical and mental health. From eating better to exercising more often, these lifestyle changes can make a significant difference to your health. 

4. It’s important to choose the right surgeon

Since a mommy makeover consists of multiple procedures, it’s important to choose the right surgeon. Do as much research as you can on the surgeon you have in mind. Qualifications, experience, affiliations and reviews from past patients should all be considered. You should also gauge how comfortable you feel with the surgeon during your consultation. 

5. Costs will vary

Since every mommy makeover consists of different procedures, there’s no way to determine what your surgery will cost. Costs will also vary between surgeons. It’s important not to make your decision based on cost alone though, experience and results are what you should look at first. Many surgeons also offer financing so if you are worried about costs, speak to your surgeon about this option. Your surgeon will be able to tell you what your surgery will cost after your consultation. 

As you start your search for a mommy makeover surgeon, it’s recommended that you meet with at least two different surgeons before you make a final decision. You should also use your consultations to ask as many questions as you can. Any surgeon that can’t provide you with all the information you need or forces you to schedule a mommy makeover is not a good fit. Don’t feel pressured to make a final decision during your consultation. In fact, you should always take a day or two to think about things before you schedule the procedure.
