Yes, it’s true, children are the most amazing gift. However, they can cause havoc on your body. Not only do they cause stretch marks and weight gain, but they can also deflate your once perky breasts. If you are like most women, and want your pre-baby body back, you’re in luck–consider a mommy makeover
What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is a set of treatments designed to give women their confidence and appearance back from before they had children. By either opting to do one treatment or multiple treatments, you can lift and tighten your body. Procedures include tummy tucks, breast implants, breast lifts, and liposuction.
How Do I Know What Treatment is Best for Me?
During the process of deciding what combination of procedures you want to get during your mommy makeover, you won’t be alone. Your doctor will be there to help guide you through every step of the process. Until then, here are some ways to help decide what is right for you.
If you have a lot of excess skin leftover from carrying babies, a tummy tuck is the right thing for you. By tightening the skin around your stomach area, you will have a more slim and natural appearance that will resemble how you looked in your teens and twenties.
Liposuction is the perfect solution if you just can’t get rid of a little bit of fat around your middle, your upper arms, or thighs. Although pregnancy is a wonderful thing, it can cause you to gain weight in unexpected places, and sometimes it’s just impossible to lose the excess weight after the baby comes. However, with liposuction, the doctor can surgical scrape away any excess fat from the desired target area and leave you with a thinner looking appearance.
Breast Lift and Breast Implants
Typically done together, a breast lift and implantation surgery involves lifting the skin and breast tissues that may be drooping due to breast feeding, and implanting a breast implant as well in order to give you fuller and perkier breasts.
From tummy tucks to breast lifts, if you’re considering getting a mommy makeover, there’s an option or combination of procedures for you to choose from.

Preparing your skin for bed is just like reading your kids a bedtime story. There’s thought, creativity, and patience that goes into the task. In order to enhance your skins natural beauty, it’s important to not only take care of it in the morning but at night as well. Rid your skin of the days germs and prepare it for some serious rejuvenation with these following four tips.
Whether you opt for cleansing wipes of a gentle cleanser, there is nothing better for your skin that ridding it of the dirt, makeup, and germs that it picked up during the day.
Tip- If you decide to use a cleanser, make sure you use warm water with it as well. The warm water will open up your pores, allowing you to cleanse your skin deeper.
It’s not recommended to exfoliate your skin every day. However, exfoliating before bed a couple of times a week will help to rid your face of dead skin and encourage your body to replenish itself during your sleeping hours.
Tip- When exfoliating, avoid the eyes and focus on your T-zone (your nose, forehead, and chin). Your t-zone is where most oil accumulates which causes breakouts and blemishes.
Night creams are thicker creams that are designed to provide your skin with an extra layer of moisture during its restorative hours (your sleep time.) When using a night cream, use a pea sized amount and spread it all across your face and neck.
Tip- In order to lock in moisture, add a serum under the cream. The serum will act as a base layer, providing your skin with an extra amount of protection.
Don’t forget about your eyes! Eye creams are used to help relax the tissue around your eyes and combat any puffiness that may occur during your sleep. Additionally, as one of the most sensitive parts of your body, the area around your eyes tends to get dry which can cause fine lines and wrinkles.
Tip: When applying eye cream focus not only on the under parts of your eyes but on the outsides of your eyes as well. This will help to prevent against crows feet.
