You just gave birth! Whew. The excitement, turmoil, pain, sleeplessness, food cravings, and swollen feet are over, but you’ve got a whole new set of lovely challenges to face. You’re so in love with your little snuggle-box that you can hardly stand to be away from them, but you crave some time to get yourself back in order – how can a person be so emotionally torn? Is it possible that you need a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy Makeover is a euphemistic way of saying that you may want cosmetic surgery, specifically liposuction, to help get your body back in its pre-baby shape. Let’s face it, you’re tired, though awed, and your body looks nothing like it did before you gave birth. What do you do?
Here are three major reasons you may want to consider a minimally invasive liposuction treatment:
1. Your weight has dramatically gone up and down in the span of less than a year. This can lead to stretched skin and stubborn fat stores that don’t seem to budge even once you start working out again. Why not make life a little easier on yourself? You’re a new mom, after all! Liposuction can restore your pre-baby shape by getting to deep fat pockets and also sculpting more superficial fat so that you look great again. After a few sleepless nights the last thing you want to be worrying about it is your belly fat.
2. Vaser liposuction is technologically advanced. It used to be that a single lipo treatment would lay someone out for months at a time while their body recovered. The process is now down without general anesthesia (unless you opt for it) because it is minimally invasive. Scarring is minimal and recovery time is less than a week. Vaser uses ultrasound frequencies to melt fat stores, so that you don’t have to spend a whole year on the treadmill trying to get them to go away.
3. Nursing is not the end-all way to melt away pounds. There’s a lot of hype surrounding the ability of a nursing woman to burn extra calories, but every woman and every pregnancy is different. The very same woman could burn fat like it’s running through a hot sieve while nursing her first baby only to find that the second baby nurses twice as often and she can’t lose a pound. This is because nursing makes you really hungry. You’re supposed to slightly increase your calories while you nurse, and stay hydrated, but you’re going to want to eat meals that are appropriate for a line-backer, not a new mother. Considering how hard it might be to lose weight after pregnancy, getting a trim stomach back can be even harder. A minimally invasive liposuction treatment can help expedite you getting your pre-baby body back.
Liposuction isn’t for everyone, but it’s more affordable than ever, and it is an easy way to get your confidence back post-partum. You worked hard to be beautiful pre-baby, and you worked hard to bring life into this world. A little cosmetic surgery is an effective, labor-free way to get sexy again, and more women than ever are opting to try it out.
