Having children can bring tremendous joy to any mother’s life along with all the responsibilities. You have undoubtedly become used to putting the needs of your kids ahead of yours as you try to make the best life possible for them. While this is admirable, you should allow yourself to focus a little bit on your needs and happiness as well.

The process of pregnancy can transform your body, and it typically does so in ways that make you shy away from the mirror. You have tried diet and exercise, but you can’t seem to get anywhere near the shape you were in before you became pregnant. You may want to consider another option.


This type of makeover is basically a name given to one or more cosmetic surgery procedures that have the goal of restoring your body to its pre-pregnancy glory. Pregnancy stretches the skin of the breasts as well as the skin and muscles of the abdomen. This can play havoc with your appearance after your pregnancy as the skin is frequently not elastic enough to snap back to where it was previously. This can cause excess skin that may even be abundant enough to result in folds of skin.


One big cosmetic procedure that is a favorite after pregnancy is a tummy tuck as this both tightens the skin around the abdominal area and helps with muscle tone there. This is sometimes done in conjunction with liposuction, which actually removes excess fat under this skin. This potent combination can restore you to the body you may be missing every time you pass by a mirror.

Breast enhancement is another common plastic surgery option for women who have had children. You may notice that your breasts are sagging compared to how they were. A breast lift can bring them back up to where you’d like them to be. Additionally, you may opt for breast augmentation at this time if their size has ever been a concern for you.

Fat transfer is another procedure that you may benefit from. Basically, this takes fat from a place on your body where you don’t need it and puts it someplace where it might do some good. You can put those “love handles” to good use by removing the fat from them and perhaps using it for a butt augmentation if you’ve ever dreamed of having a figure similar that of Jennifer Lopez or Kim Kardashian.
