3 Reasons to Schedule Your Mommy Makeover in Time for Back to School
Although the summer fun and sunshine are coming to a close, the kids are headed back to school, and you might finally have a little extra time to spend on yourself. Women who consider a mommy makeover are often concerned with choosing the right timing for their procedure, and many find that waiting until the back-to-school season rolls around is ideal. While it’s normal for mothers to feel inclined to devote any extra time and effort they may have to their families, it’s crucial that you also take some much-needed time for yourself so that you can feel and project self-confidence and a positive outlook on life.
1. Support from Other Moms
Being a mom is a demanding and rewarding job, and who better to lean on for support than other superwomen mothers? Now that school’s back in session, you may find that other moms who also have some newfound flexibility during the day can offer a helping hand with things like light grocery shopping, picking the kids up from school, and daily errands.
In the same vein, other moms who have had a mommy makeover themselves may be able to offer some tips and even some friendly company while you enjoy taking some time to concentrate on yourself.
2. Plenty of Time to Recover
One of the greatest benefits of opting for a mommy makeover is that you can custom-tailor the included procedures. For example, you can achieve a breast enhancement, tummy tuck, and liposuction through one surgery, rather than scheduling (and recovering from) each one separately (American Society of Plastic Surgery).
That said, you will need to take some time to rest and relax after your mommy makeover to ensure that you get the best results. But with the kids out of the house during the day, the back-to-school season can provide the perfect calm, relaxing environment.
3. Time to Focus on You
Above all else, it’s important to recognize that setting aside some time to feel better about and more confident in yourself can have a profound impact on your overall quality of life and even the way you project yourself to your children and family (Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery). Scheduling your mommy makeover in time for back to school can help you to balance your “you” time with your family time, allowing you to fully enjoy the best of both worlds.
Remember that it’s absolutely okay (and even necessary) to spend some time and effort on yourself, even if there are a million other duties and obligations that seem to be constantly demanding your attention. There’s no reason why you can’t enjoy your family and also better yourself and your body image.
Taking the Next Step
If you’re considering a mommy makeover, the next step is to find the right plastic surgeon with whom to work. Be sure to seek a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing mommy makeovers and who takes the time to carefully listen to your needs and goals to design an individualized surgical plan to help you meet your expectations. It can also be a good idea to inquire about before and after photos of previous mommy makeover procedures performed by that particular plastic surgeon to help you visualize the kinds of results you might be able to expect.
