Marbella, Spain (PressExposure) August 14, 2009 -- The constant pressure by the media for woman to have the perfect bodies is made ever harder for mothers by the pressure generated by celebrities who just weeks after giving birth are exposing toned and flab free bodies.
Nothing can ever compare to holding your new born baby in your arms. The newness the excitement and the feelings of achievement far out weigh the fact that Pregnancy and childbirth produces the biggest transformation both physical and emotional in a woman's life.
The physical changes that a woman's body endures during and after childbirth and through breastfeeding are for the most part repairable but the fact is that with the added weight gain abdominal walls are stretched and this weight gain can be difficult to lose. Breasts droop and sag and woman are often faced with bodies that do not resemble in the least the bodies flaunted by celebrity mums on the pages of the glossies. Mums as a consequence are turning to Surgery and "the Mummy Makeover" as it is now known to get back their pre pregnancy bodies.
The mummy makeover consists of three procedures:
Breast Augmentation: used to restore volume to mummies breasts. Breast feeding can shrink the breasts so inserting an implant increases the volume and gives mummy her pre pregnancy boobies. An implant may not be necessary and to achieve the look mummy wants breast uplift may be all that's needed. Or mummies whose breasts have grown and stretched (as sometimes happens) can have a breast reduction where tissue is removed to give the probably look.
Tummy Tuck: Pregnancy stretches the skin around the abdomen and after birth mummies can be left with excess skin or as is commonly known "an Apron". A tummy tuck removes this excess fold of skin and tightens the tummy muscles in this area. Liposuction: this procedure is carried out around the abdomen, waist and hips; it re-contours the shape by removing fatty deposits and is a compliment to the tummy tuck.
David Mills director of Mills & Mills says" woman are under tremendous pressure these days due to the celebrity culture to be seen to have the pre baby bodies within weeks of giving birth. They feel inadequate or failures if they don't. We have seen a marked rise in woman coming to Spain to have "The Mummy Makeover" the procedures are safe and the results are instant. If a woman does not feel she has finished having her family we would suggest she waits until she has because then she will have longer lasting results.
So it appears we can have it all, the beautiful baby and the beautiful body with a Mummy Makeover
