Mommy makeovers are one of the most popular new plastic surgery procedures, but can you get one if you’re not a mom? How about if your kids are older and you’re not “mommy” anymore?
The short answer: yes! Mommy makeovers aren’t just for moms and they’re not just for new moms.
Read on to understand why anyone can get a “mommy makeover.”
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeover is simply a term for a set of procedures designed to improve the areas of the body that are most impacted by pregnancy and childbirth. Since no two pregnancies are the same, no two mommy makeovers are the same. It is a highly customizable procedure that can include breast implants, breast lift, breast reduction, tummy tuck, labiaplasty, liposuction, or even a Brazilian butt lift.
The important thing about a mommy makeover is that you get to address the areas that are most important to you.
Why Mommy Makeovers Aren’t Just for Moms
Some people think that mommy makeovers are for moms with young children. Despite the name, you don’t have to be a new mom, or a mom at all, to be eligible for a mommy makeover.
The changes in the body that come with pregnancy aren’t exclusive to pregnancy. Sagging breasts, stretch marks, and stubborn fat deposits can come with hormone imbalances, age, lifestyle, or even genetics. The procedures commonly included in a mommy makeover can address these changes, no matter the cause.
As we age, it can be difficult to lose weight, no matter how much we exercise or how healthy our diet is. Breasts can also start to sag or lose volume, even if a woman has never been pregnant or breastfed. In this case, liposuction or a tummy tuck and a breast lift or breast implants can address these concerns. This would technically be a mommy makeover, although you don’t have to call it that if you’re not a mom!
How to Get a Mommy Makeover When You’re Not a Mom
If you don’t have children, it might feel a little strange to ask for a mommy makeover. Instead, you can simply tell Dr. Ortiz the areas of your body you’d like to address. He’ll then recommend procedures that would best improve the look of these areas. Having multiple procedures performed in the same surgery may fall under the “mommy makeover” name, but it doesn’t have to!
