Houston Cosmetic Surgery: Mommy Makeovers

Many Houston moms will look for breast augmentation or  breast lift packages as a part of a trend of cosmetic procedures known as “Mommy Makeovers.” This trend is a cosmetic surgery practice helping women to regain feelings of confidence after the changes they go through while pregnant. Top surgeons took this specific group of women to focus on for cosmetic surgery.

Why A Mommy Makeover Cosmetic Surgery?

The goal of a mommy makeover is for women to feel beautiful. Childbearing and childbirth take a huge toll on a woman’s self-esteem. As pregnant bodies change, women may find themselves feeling uncomfortable with their new outward appearance. About 40% of women feel self-conscious about their figures in front of their partners. When asked how these women could feel confident again, their number one answer is firmer breasts and stomachs. The fast growth that women experience in their breasts while pregnant and breastfeeding can cause sagging and stretch marks. Breast augmentations and breast lifts work to create a fuller shape for women after the journey of pregnancy is complete.

Things to consider

Cosmetic procedures are customized with the mother in mind, so many things need to be considered before scheduling happens. New mothers have specific concerns that are to be addressed before undergoing cosmetic procedures. For that reason, a mommy makeover candidate must have a few bases covered before proceeding with the surgery. For example, a woman who is finished having children is an ideal candidate for cosmetic procedures. This is important because pregnancy can reverse the outcome of the cosmetic procedure. The ideal candidate for the mommy makeover must also be done with breastfeeding for at least six months. A woman undergoing a breast augmentation or breast lift in Houston will not be in the proper state to nurse should she undergo cosmetic procedures.

Another Idea…

The mother’s weight before undergoing any cosmetic procedures is another thing to consider. Included in a complete mommy makeover package is a tummy tuck or a liposuction procedure. An ideal weight goal for at least six months is necessary for ideal candidates. Women who want to have cosmetic work done should be in good health. A clean bill of health is the best sign to go on with any cosmetic procedures.
