When you become pregnant, your body will be going through changes to ensure your baby gets the nutrients he or she needs to grow. Often, your body becomes less of a priority as your child grows and your life becomes filled with playdates, school, soccer practice, and more. However, you don’t have to live with your post-pregnancy body if you’re unsatisfied with your shape.
Nikki Vodanovich, mother of two, couldn’t get her pre-baby body back, and one comment from her daughter rang out, blowing her self-esteem.
“It really hit home when I was in a bathing suit with my children outside washing the car and my daughter turned to my son and said, look, mommy’s pregnant again!” said Vodanovich.
Diet and exercise didn’t seem to help her much, and wearing tight-fitting clothing in the heat was out of the question. So instead of feeling uncomfortable, Nikki decided to undergo multiple procedures known as a “Mommy Makeover.”
With multiple combinations of procedures to help you get the look you want, a Mommy Makeover commonly consists of abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, with a breast lift or augmentation, and liposuction. These procedures can often take 10 years off a woman’s appearance, and reverse the negative effects of pregnancy and nursing.
It’s beneficial to undergo several procedures at the same time to reduce recovery time, which means the Mommy Makeover can rapidly transform women into their pre-baby body or better.
“It’s just wanting to be the best version of yourself,” said Vodanovich. “If being able to fit into clothes better makes you feel better and exudes and lifts up your self-confidence, I say why not.”
