Apparently, there’s no “me” in “mommy.” A recent survey revealed that the seemingly never-ending demands of household, work and family duties often cause moms to neglect their own beauty routines.
In fact, some might say this selflessness is reaching surprising proportions. The survey found that 75 percent of moms have skipped their own showers to take care of their children’s needs-with one-fourth confessing that they have actually gone three days or longer without showering.
If that’s not hair-raising evidence that a beauty intervention is in fast order, consider this: Nearly half of moms claim that they have gone seven months or more without a haircut, and almost two-thirds (61 percent) admit to wearing ponytails or sweatpants more often now that they’re moms.
Some survey results that beauty takes the back seat with mommy priorities.
While it’s not overly surprising that moms are putting their families and children first, somewhere in the unwritten guide to motherhood, beauty seems to have been pushed to the back burner. Only 13 percent of moms say that beauty has not taken a backseat to their family’s needs.
Beauty at a Price
We have an obsession with celebrities, and truthfully, we all adore their clothes, their shoes, their hair! We enjoyed watching them getting in love, married and having kids. During these months, we observed them from being fat mom to a hot mom, which is truly inspiring for all the mothers out there which reminds them that beauty doesn’t need to be taken for granted when you become a mom.
Now there’s a cosmetic surgery which is designed specifically for mommys. After the birth of a child, it takes several months for the body to return to its pre-pregnancy form. During pregnancy, the body makes changes and hormones to allow for the birth and growth of the new child. Not only does the abdomen have to stretch to accommodate the growing child, but breasts engorge to help provide milk for the baby. Once these changes are no longer necessary, the skin will contract to varying degrees in an effort to return the body to its pre-pregnancy state.
Following pregnancy, despite regular diet and exercise, some women may find that they have excess skin in the lower abdomen, and others may find that they have breasts that have lost volume and “sag,” even after returning to their pre-baby weight. A mommy makeover describes the surgical procedures done to correct these changes and may include an abdominoplasty (also known as a “tummy tuck”), liposuction, and either a breast lift, breast reduction or breast augmentation.
It’s important to have stopped breast-feeding because your breasts need to return to their normal size and shape and stop producing milk. You can have a successful pregnancy after a “mommy makeover,” but you may require more procedures if you have more children or large weight fluctuations after your initial surgeries.
Make sure that you only go for board certified surgeons and do your assignment before undergoing surgery if you have the money and time. No matter what, it is important to always remember that true beauty comes from within and all moms are beautiful because their hearts are filled with love for their families.
