A woman’s body after giving birth doesn’t usually revert to its pre-pregnancy state right away, if ever – at least, not completely. As she experiences the joy of watching her new baby grow, a woman might become frustrated when her protruding abdomen, sagging breasts, and other pregnancy-related changes to her body linger. While exercise and healthy eating habits can help combat these changes, Dr. Daniel Greenwald of Bayshore Plastic Surgery in Tampa, FL, cautions that a new mom should not try too hard too soon. Intense workouts and crash diets can make a woman who is caring for an infant feel overly exhausted and quickly discouraged, especially if she doesn’t immediately see the results of her hard work, or if her pregnancy was difficult. So, how can a mother enhance her body after birth?
For women who have finished breastfeeding and do not plan on having more children, a mommy makeover can be a good option. At a surgery center in Tampa, Florida, Dr. Greenwald offers a variety of cosmetic procedures that target the breasts, abdomen, and other areas to help address unwanted changes to a woman’s body after birth. Each patient’s circumstances are unique. Therefore, during a personal consultation, Dr. Greenwald works closely with each surgical candidate to discuss her concerns, review her options, and create a customized treatment plan to help achieve her aesthetic goals.
A mommy makeover might include two or more of the following procedures:
- Breast lift and augmentation
- Tummy tuck
- Buttock lift
Cosmetic procedures like these can enhance a woman’s appearance and help her reclaim her pre-baby physique. Of course, while having children can take a toll on a woman’s body, it can also be extremely rewarding. A mother has many reasons to feel proud of the time, effort, and personal sacrifices she makes for the benefit of her family. As such, it’s quite understandable that she might feel hesitant to focus on her body after birth, but it’s important for her to feel good about herself, too.
