Mommy Makeover Patients Say “Don’t Put It Off”

I get a lot of positive feedback from my Mommy Makeover patients, who are typically among the most satisfied of all the patients I see for cosmetic plastic surgery. One comment that I consistently hear is, “I wish I had done it sooner.” I think these words are worth sharing with women thinking about a Mommy Makeover who might be putting it off.

It is easy to put your own wants and needs on hold when you are focused on meeting the needs of your family. This is something I hear a lot from my Mommy Makeover patients. And since the Mommy Makeover usually involves a tummy tuck, a breast procedure such as a breast lift, and often liposuction, it can be a little daunting to think about taking time out of your busy schedule to recover from plastic surgery. Some moms have told me that they felt “selfish” focusing on their appearance, and dedicating a few weeks of recovery time to healing. But after undergoing Mommy Makeover surgery, their perspectives typically change.

Many of these mothers report feeling better about themselves than they have in ages – even better than they had thought possible. It is not uncommon for Mommy Makeover patients to use words like “energized,” “rejuvenated,” or “ecstatic” to describe their experience. A common sentiment among these patients is that they feel younger, more confident, and generally have a more positive outlook after their Mommy Makeover. Some feel that they are ultimately able to give more to their families after giving this gift to themselves.

So if you are considering a Mommy Makeover, consider the words of those who have been where you are. There may be no time like the present to get back your body and start getting more out of life.
