If you are a mother, you know the brighter side of life. A simple smile from your child can instantly turn a frown upside down. At the same time, mothers also often experience a chronic state of dissatisfaction when it comes to their body. You may know exactly why. If your breasts have completely deflated and your abdomen has turned to mush as a result of pregnancy and breastfeeding, you may transition from ignoring your body to wishing you could change it. Desiring something different for your body doesn’t diminish your appreciation of motherhood, it just means you want the best for yourself. A Mommy Makeover can help you get it.
Women know that a Mommy Makeover can dramatically change their appearance. This is why the customized process is so popular. Getting a new body may be the goal of a Mommy Makeover, but patients get a whole lot more.
- New clothing options. Many of the women we treat settle for clothes that are comfortable and loose. The change in shape after a Mommy Makeover leads a large percentage of our patients to reconsider how they are dressing. A new body means a whole new way of looking at clothes. Everything may fit a little differently, opening up a whole new way to present oneself through fashion.
- New perspective. The way we look at life affects how we show up on a daily basis. A woman who undergoes a Mommy Makeover is saying “I matter.” Her investment in her physical appearance often leads to greater awareness of her self-esteem. Many women express more appreciation for how they mother and relate with friends and loved ones as a result of increased self-esteem after their Mommy Makeover.
- New habits. Often, women schedule their Mommy Makeover after their diet and exercise efforts have given them only minimal results, if any. Removing excess fat, tightening the abdominal muscles, and reshaping the breasts allows a woman to see her body more clearly. As a result, many of our patients experience newfound motivation to take better care of themselves with daily habits like eating a balanced diet, exercising and even resting more.
Your body can reflect who you are on the inside whether you’ve had one child or many. Learn more about the Mommy Makeover process. Contact our Chicago office at (312) 266-6240.
