Attempting to get back to a pre-pregnancy figure with diet and exercise alone can sometimes not put a dent in the areas that are most greatly effected during a pregnancy. A combination of cosmetic procedures known as the Mommy Makeover is growing in popularity with today's mothers all across America.
Charlotte, North Carolina's WBTV 3 recently reported that hundreds of thousands of the Mommy Makeover procedures are being performed each year. The women who undergo the procedure typically range from the ages of 20 to 39.
Many would think that the Hollywood elite would make up the majority of the makeover procedures, but in this case the majority of patients are middle-class mothers. They are opting to get the procedure to bring their bodies back to the way they were before they had children.
Pamela Maple, 44, is a mother who underwent the procedure and told WBTV that she hoped it would give her back her pre-pregnancy body. “I was always covering my stomach and always had a muffin top,” she said.
The Mommy Makeover can include a combination these procedures:
After her procedure, Maple stated, “I feel great. I feel like me, but I feel like a better me.” Maple's statement fits right in with the goal of the Mommy Makeover: not to get a perfect body, but to bring your body back to the way it was before having children.
As with any medical procedure doing research before making a decision is extremely important. WBTV reinforced this point saying that, “Doctors say the most important questions, however, are not about their tools but about their training.”
WBTV went on and offered the advice that even though the Mommy Makeover includes multiple procedures as a package, make sure you're only getting the procedures that you need for your situation.
