Ever felt secret shame for thinking about getting plastic surgery? You’re not alone. Many of the women who visit us for mommy makeover surgery in the Los Angeles area share fears of experiencing “mom shaming” or “mom guilt” for investing time and money into the way they look. But plastic surgery is about so much more than the way we look—it’s about the way we feel about ourselves. There’s nothing selfish about wanting to live confidently, whether that involves plastic surgery or not.
In this blog post, we’ll explain why getting a mommy makeover is anything but selfish and why you deserve to love the body you’re in from head to toe.
Reclaiming your body is beautiful.
When you have kids, your body does the amazing job of growing and nurturing a child, but pregnancy also causes lasting changes. Lingering fat deposits, stretched skin, and sagging or deflated breasts are all the norm. If these changes make you feel out of touch with your appearance or less confident in your skin, however, it may help to reclaim your pre-baby body.
A mommy makeover helps you feel like your body is yours again by restoring the way you looked before pregnancy. It does this through several procedures, including:
- Liposuction for stubborn fat removal
- Tummy tuck for skin and muscle tightening
- Breast enhancement for fuller and more lifted breasts
All of this takes place within a single surgery and recovery period, so you can enjoy a total transformation with as little downtime as possible. Learn more about the recovery process in this related blog post.
A mommy makeover isn’t the “easy way out.”
A mommy makeover isn’t a shortcut to getting in shape without diet and exercise—it complements the hard work you’ve already put in. Loose skin, drooping breasts, and stretched abdominal muscles are among the most common pregnancy-related concerns, and unfortunately, no amount of healthy eating or time in the gym will fully resolve them—only surgery will.
Plastic surgery is way more common than you think.
Think you’re the only mom you know considering a mommy makeover? Think again. More than a million women underwent plastic surgery in 2019 alone, according to ASAPS statistics. These numbers grow every year as more people discover how subtle, beneficial, and safe plastic surgery really is.
Plastic surgery results are designed to look natural and “real,” so it’s very possible you know someone who has had a surgical procedure and just hasn’t revealed it to you. Similarly, you don’t have to tell anyone about your surgery if you don’t want to. Chances are, people will just notice that you look especially fit, well-rested, and confident, even if they aren’t exactly sure what has changed.
You deserve to live confidently.
Confidence is contagious. Feeling proud of the way you look translates into the way you live your life—when you look good, you feel good, and when you feel good, you’re good to those around you. Loving your body allows you to break free from insecurity and “what ifs” so you can give the best of yourself to the people you love and, most importantly, to yourself.
