Why young moms go for mommy makeovers
Nov 23rd 2020
Younger women are more ambitious than ever. They want to have it all, including a successful career, happy children, and a great body. Thankfully, the younger generation can now benefit from mommy makeovers.
The popular combination of cosmetic surgery procedures helps them regain their pre-pregnancy figures, along with a ton of confidence, without a restrictive diet or intense exercise.
Younger women have busy lifestyles. They dedicate a lot of time to their families and jobs and don’t always take proper care of themselves. When they discover the mommy makeover, they jump at the chance to get back in shape quickly and gain the energy and positive self-image they need to excel in all areas of their lives.
What is a mommy makeover?
Not two mommy makeovers are the same. They typically involve a few different cosmetic surgery procedures, all aimed at lifting, tucking, and improving the overall physical appearance of the breasts and abdomen.
After women finish having children, the body often doesn’t bounce back even with large amounts of physical activity and nutritious foods. A personalized mommy makeover for younger women corrects the problem and may include body contouring through breast augmentation, a breast lift, tummy tuck, or liposuction.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, women ages, 20–40 received 66% of the breast augmentations in 2019, 44% of tummy tucks, 50% of liposuctions, and 43% of breast lifts. A mommy makeover typically involves a combination of these four procedures.
Mommy makeovers include a combination of:
Breast augmentation: Pregnancy and breastfeeding change the size and feel of the breasts. Women often lose volume during this time, leaving them sagging, smaller, or misshapen. Breast augmentation involves adding a silicone or saline implant that brings fullness and shape back to the breasts. Younger women feel like themselves again—more feminine, self-confident, and comfortable in their clothing.
Breast Lift: Sometimes younger women want to bring back the natural shape of their breasts. A breast lift restore the firmness they lost by elevating the breasts. The cosmetic surgery procedure can be performed by itself or in conjunction with breast augmentation.
Tummy Tuck: A younger women’s body is miraculous, with abdominal skin able to stretch to accommodate a growing baby. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always go back to being taunt after childbirth. A tummy tuck can help remove loose, sagging skin or fatty deposits and repair stretched muscles in the abdomen. Younger women end up with a firmly contoured tummy once again.
Liposuction: A tummy tuck is almost always combined with liposuction to eliminate fat in the entire abdominal region and achieve the overall tightened look of the waistline that younger women want to return. Hard-to-remove fat is suctioned through a small, thin tube, creating an overall more slender and firm appearance.
Why are mommy makeovers perfect for younger women?
No matter if you choose to have your mommy makeover include all of the procedures or just a couple, there are key reasons younger women are the perfect candidates for mommy makeovers.
- Younger women still have a lot of active years ahead of them. After a mommy makeover, it’s important to get enough physical activity to make sure you maintain your new shape. Younger women still have lots of energy and are in a prime time in their lives to remain physically fit—and look good while doing it.
- Many younger women have good jobs and significant incomes. Being financially stable motivates younger women to invest some of their money into plastic surgery. Mommy makeovers are a good choice because they are cost-effective. When you get more than one procedure done at once, you can benefit from significant savings. Fees, such as those associated with the operating room and anesthesia, are charged only once.
- Many surgeries at once means only one recovery. Only needing to plan for one recuperation period is especially important to younger moms coordinating time off of work and childcare for their children.
