The reason why Dr. Cruise decided to dedicate an entire section to the changes associated with child birth is because of the profound psychological effects it has on the mother. These effects are not talked about much because women are taught to accept them as the price for motherhood. These changes cause the mother to feel bad and even somewhat depressed. What is not discussed is how these sad feelings can actually have a negative impact on the rest of the family.
The depression comes from losing control over her body. No matter what she does she cannot get back to the body pregnancy has taken away from her.
Often, mothers will consider plastic surgery but are reluctant because of guilt. They feel that they should always put their family’s needs in front of their own. They feel guilty about spending money on themselves when there are other things they could do with the money. Finally, they feel guilty for potentially risking their safety to improve their appearance. All of these reasons cause the mother to put off getting their body back until much later. Once they do get the surgery the response is always the same, “Why did I wait so long. I should have done it sooner. Life is too short.”
Much of plastic surgery can be considered “cosmetic” but when it comes to plastic surgery to correct changes from pregnancy, there are certainly other very important reasons to consider. One must consider the psychological and emotional reasons that make a mother feel like her body is back to where it used to be.
Another aspect that can not be overlooked is the regained sense of sexuality that a woman feels after her mommy-makeover. This heightened sense of self esteem makes her feel sexy again. Often, after pregnancy, a woman will no longer wear sexy clothes. She may no longer feel comfortable taking her clothes off with the lights on. Ultimately, she may lose interest in sex. This has a significant impact on her relationship with her significant other.
The time and money spent on the mommy makeover is more than recovered by the improvement in quality of life.
The nice thing about the mommy makeover is that the breasts and the tummy can be done together. This allows for one surgery and one recovery. The important thing is to get your entire family on board so that they know how important this is to you and why it is needed. Once everyone is on board, the entire process becomes exciting. There becomes a sense of anticipation knowing that you are doing what is necessary to get back to your more youthful body and mind.
