It’s been reported that mom-to-be Kim Kardashian is worrying more than a little about her post-natal body. Many women have a similar issue as putting on the pounds during pregnancy is practically unavoidable.
Let’s be honest – if celebrities like Ms. Kardashian are worried about it and have the time and means to avoid the issue altogether if that were possible, then it’s probably a problem for the rest of us future moms who have to hold down a job and take medical advice from our mothers-in-law.
So, what to do?
Well, it’s reported that Kim’s planning to have a bit of a nip and tuck to restore her body to its former glory after she’s had her first child. She’ll need to wait a few months, of course, but that shouldn’t be an issue.
Mommy Makeovers aren’t anything new. Renowned facial plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Vitenas of Houston, Texas, has been offering a set of procedures that have proven to be very effective in restoring a woman’s body after childbirth. Of course, women should be in good health to be considered candidates.
The Mommy Makeover usually starts with a breast augmentation procedure since this is one of the more common areas that women find needs work, especially after breast feeding. Other components are usually a breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction. A body lift can be performed as well if needed. Of course, the exact nature of the procedures will be determined by the amount of sculpting required. In some cases, the surgery can be fairly extensive, lasting up to seven hours.
If, like Kim, you’re planning your mommy makeover in early pregnancy, here’s a bit of advice – don’t just rely on the surgeon to fix your body after you’ve given birth. Give your body a chance as well by eating sensibly, maintaining an exercise regime, and taking note of any medical advice given to you.
It’s very likely that your post-natal body can benefit from some form of surgery, but that shouldn’t be an excuse to let it all go in the first place.
Don’t forget – the better your body’s condition when you come to us for your Mommy Makeover, the better the end result will be. You might even find it’s better than before you were pregnant!
