Is it wrong to want your pre-pregnancy body back? Isn’t it frustrating when despite rigorous diet and exercise you don’t see significant changes? Wasn’t it fun to feel desirable and sexy? Wasn’t it fun to wear sexy clothing? Isn’t it unfair that women have to do all the childbearing work and suffer the consequences of pregnancy while men don’t! Is this a good time to invest in YOU?
Of course it doesn’t help when you are told that “you’re fine the way you are” or “do whatever makes you happy”—which is the usual response I get when I ask my patients what their significant other thinks. Could you imagine being told that you need to have something done?!?
It is easy to see how this can affect your self esteem and your personal body image. In my experience, I find that the family just isn’t happy if mom is not happy. So in essence, the “mommy makeover” is the careful and appropriate selection of plastic surgery procedures to turn back the clock back to pre-children days. The goal is for you to look as good as you feel and enjoy your life to the fullest!
