Why You Shouldn’t Feel Guilty About a Mommy Makeover

Why You Shouldn’t Feel Guilty About a Mommy Makeover

Moms, this one is for you.

Thank you. Thank you for the way you selflessly love your family day after day. You nurture and support us in every way. You work tirelessly inside and outside the home, and make sure we are performing at our best. It sometimes seems that only in those rare instances when there happens to be a bit of free time do you take care of yourself, too.

Enough of being drained or exhausted! Shouldn’t you feel energized and good about yourself? That’s why today we want to talk about a procedure we offer that’s just for moms.

Many moms dream of this procedure, but think they could never spend the time or money on themselves. Indeed, moms can be very self-sacrificing, or even feel guilty about taking care of themselves. And yet this treatment has been life-changing for many women. Moms come out feeling happier, better about themselves and, perhaps ironically, energized to love their families even more.

So what is this special treatment? It’s commonly called the “Mommy Makeover.” The Mommy Makeover is a unique combination of treatments designed just for you. Typically the focus is on breasts and tummies, but not exclusively, as it depends entirely on the individual. Dr. Kayastha talks with you to find out what parts of your body leave you feeling insecure, and then creates a personalized make over plan to give you back your pre-pregnancy body.

If you are thinking you just might love to have one, we want to share:

Three reasons why you shouldn’t feel guilty about a Mommy Makeover

1. You deserve it.

Let’s be honest. Whether you’re a relatively new or long-time mom, you’ve probably been putting your family’s priorities before your own for quite some time now. You’ve changed who-knows-how-many diapers and woken up or waited up countless nights. Now it’s your turn. Everyone deserves to put themselves first on occasion. If you’ve finished having children and would like to regain your pre-pregnancy shape, we believe you’ve earned it.

2. When you feel your best, you can give your best.

If you need extra motivation, think of your makeover as a little gift to your family, too. How so? When you feel good about yourself, you are able to love others even better. Dr. Kayastha compares it to putting on your own oxygen mask before helping someone else. Basically, you have to take care of yourself in order to care for others. The Mommy Makeover can help you feel your best mentally and emotionally, allowing you to give your best to those who matter most.

3. You can enjoy it right now.

Some women dream of a Mommy Makeover for years, but end up having the procedure done late in life. That’s fine and we certainly welcome you to our office at any age. But we also wonder: Why wait so long when you could be enjoying the body of your dreams right now — even this summer? The optimal time for a Mommy Makeover is six months to a year after giving birth, when you know that you’re finished having children. If that’s you, then why not enjoy your new body now, and give those cute bathing suits you were eyeing a try on your family vacation?

It comes down to this: You deserve to take care of yourself.

Whether that means going to the spa once a month, getting a manicure, enjoying a weekly date night with your husband or girlfriends, or scheduling a Mommy Makeover, do what you need to do to feel your best. We are eternally grateful for our moms; a world without the love and support of our mothers is inconceivable! But don’t forget that there’s no need to feel guilty about investing in yourself. When you feel your best, you can give your best.
