Mommy Makeover: Brilliance on Mother’s Day
As this Mother’s Day has flown by, the mommy makeover springs to mind as I reflect on the beautiful relationship I have with my mother, my mother-in-law and my daughter. Being a mother is incredibly fulfilling. But let’s face it – becoming and being a mom changes us in many ways!
The changes to our bodies during and after childbirth occur for very specific reasons. We gain more fat during pregnancy to store energy for our babies in case we don’t eat enough food. This fat is hard to lose! Our skin stretches to accommodate one, sometimes multiple babies. It doesn’t just “snap back.” The abdominal muscles weaken and separate. This creates the illusion of increased abdominal girth when in fact the walls are just looser than they used to be.
Don’t get me wrong – I wouldn’t trade being a mom for the world! But what options do we have to return our bodies and mindsets to the physique we recognize as our true selves? That confidence of being in your own skin — how do we regain that?
We start with healthy habits, diet and exercise. These are easier said than done. It’s much easier to nab a few goldfish while the toddler is snacking. Ladies, I know, I’ve been there. There comes a point for some women that diet and exercise are not enough to get us back to that vision of ourselves in our mind’s eye.
Restoring Brilliance with a Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover can help. It is a refresher where we wipe the slate clean and reset you to the body you proudly recognize as yours. To the shape that was confidently you. A mommy makeover means lifting and shaping those sagging breasts which breastfed for many days and nights. A mommy makeover means tightening together those muscles that have separated while making space for a little someone special to join the family. It means reshaping and redraping that stretched skin over your belly, which you once cradled fondly to feel kicks.
As a mother, you can look as good as you feel with a mommy makeover. We are here to help you on that journey – contact us today for a consultation!
