Emotional Benefits Of A Mommy Makeover
You treasure the memory of your pregnancy and delivery experience, but Dr. Alan Greenberg can help erase the effects you’d rather forget. The long-lasting physiological changes brought about by pregnancy—a belly pouch, stretch marks, loss of elasticity and tissue in the breasts—can make you feel self conscious, frustrated and even depressed. A mommy makeover can restore what was lost, including your self-confidence.
A mommy makeover actually refers to a combination of cosmetic services that benefit women post-pregnancy or with age-induced body changes. Dr. Greenberg performs in-office mommy makeovers comprised of one or more of the following:
Read more about what the in-office mommy makeover entails, from cost to recovery, on the Mommy Makeover FAQs section of Dr. Greenberg’s website. Procedures at North Texas Cosmetic Surgery are offered in conjunction with tumescent anesthesia, a revolutionary surgical method that results in reduced pain, bleeding and recovery time.
The Psychological Effects of Pregnancy’s Lingering Weight Gain
Dr. Greenberg sees patients in his Frisco cosmetic surgery office who have suffered a loss of self-esteem from losing their figures. Among the negative psychological changes that sometimes occur after pregnancy and childbirth:
- Loss of sex drive
- Feeling embarrassed to have your husband or partner see you without clothes
- Relationship issues
- Loss of confidence in your place of employment
Many studies that examine weight gain during and after pregnancy link body dissatisfaction with depression, psychological stress, over eating and additional weight gain.
According to 7,000 mothers responding to a BabyCenter.com survey: 64% felt worse about their body image after giving birth.
Dr. Greenberg believes in adopting a healthful lifestyle, and a less-is-more approach to cosmetic surgery. He will not recommend a mommy makeover for every woman, but will explain the benefits of targeted aesthetic enhancements to improve the abdomen, breasts, hips, thighs and face.
Add a Mommy Makeover to Overall Wellness Strategies
Exercise and diet can help mitigate the effects of pregnancy weight gain, but sometimes the looser abdominal muscles and over-stretched skin can resist change. Tumescent anesthesia performed with the new vaser technique provides a long-lasting tightening effect and an effective method for removing fat deposits.
Of course, after refining your appearance with a tummy tuck, liposuction or breast enhancement, Dr. Greenberg recommends adopting a regular exercise routine and sensible diet.
