Like most new mothers, you may now just realize that your body has changed after carrying your baby for the past nine months. It is no surprise that almost all mothers have trouble getting their body back to great form. Weight fluctuations, sagging breasts, loose abdominal muscles and excess fat are some of the things women wish they did not have to endure from pregnancy and all these changes can make mothers feel self conscious about their figure. What most women are unsure of is how to initiate healthy weight loss and when would be the right time to undergo a mommy makeover.
A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures designed to revitalize a mother’s body. In some cases it enhances the woman’s figure to an even better physique that they have always struggled to achieve. The package of treatments generally consists of tightening the midsection with a tummy tuck, removing excess fat deposits with liposuction, restoring the youthful symmetry of the breasts with a breast lift and breast augmentation to maintain a fuller and firmer breast shape.
Complete Your Family First
Mothers who no longer plan on becoming pregnant in the future can consider themselves a candidate for a mommy makeover. It is also important to wait for a minimum of six months after breastfeeding your child so that the breasts stabilize or return to their natural shape after pregnancy. Once the mother has committed to the mommy makeover lifestyle, she will be able to maintain long-lasting results.
Stabilize Body Weight
Cosmetic surgery is not the solution to achieve healthy weight loss, so it is necessary for a mother to attempt to get back to her pre-pregnancy body weight before having a mommy makeover. Following a healthy diet and exercise routine is the best solution to initiate weight loss.
Stabilizing weight is almost easier said than done, but one of the best exercise routines to keep your heart rate up and burn more calories after pregnancy is through high intensity interval training (HIIT). One study by the University of Western Ontario reported that after six weeks, three sessions of HIIT per week, subjects were able to lose more fat than those who walked for an hour on the treadmill. HIIT programs are fast-paced combination workouts that do not require much time to complete them, so instead of spending hours doing low-intensity workouts at the gym you can get more results by doing a 15-to-20-minute interval routine right at home.
While exercise and diet will comfortably initiate steady weight loss, a mother’s body is bound to carry a few excess areas of loose skin and post-pregnancy weight. This is when a woman may feel inclined to seek assistance with a mommy makeover. If you are a mother who is having trouble restoring the look and touch of your thighs, stomach, breasts and other areas, schedule a consultation with Dr. Javaheri to learn how a mommy makeover can restore your pre-pregnancy body. Once you have stabilized your weight and waited six months after having your last child you will be able to replenish your confidence and figure with a mommy makeover in San Francisco.
