Many mothers today are caught in a constant back and forth battle. They love being a wife and a mother yet they are not in love with what pregnancy and the mommy years have done to their bodies. The saggy breasts, tubby flab, and other changes that linger long after pregnancy, delivery, and breastfeeding are done can be embarrassing and stressful for many women. Add to that the fact that many women feel they owe more to their husband and children than they do to themselves, and it is easy to see why many women are hesitant to act on their desires to improve their looks with a mommy makeover.
“The irony is most women would get their car repainted if it got keyed, but they feel guilty about “fixing” their bodies… Some women experience real social distress and embarrassment by their bodies. Dating becomes difficult. They restrict their social interaction by avoiding places where they would need to wear less clothing, like the beach or pool parties. Even putting on makeup can be stressful, because foundation settles into saggy, wrinkled skin. Eye shadow only accentuates crepey, drooping eyelids, and just never looks good” (Prime Women).
Why a Mommy Makeover is Needed
Having a baby may be on of the happiest moments in a woman’s life but their bodies are not always so happy with the process. Saggy breasts, stretch marks, wrinkles, obstinate belly fat or saggy skin can all make a new mom feel less beautiful and graceful and loveable. This does not have to be the case, and there is nothing wrong with wanting to still look good after pregnancy and childbirth. Once the baby is born and breastfeeding is done, many of the areas of the female body don’t necessarily return to their pre-pregnancy firmness and tone. That is where a Chicago mommy makeover can make a world of difference. With a number of treatments available to choose from it can be possible to get back the slimmer and younger looking body and it can be possible to fall in love with your reflection yet again!
