Postpartum girdles – Do they work?

If you’ve had a cesarean section, using a girdle or compression bandage isn’t medically necessary but it may offer an added sense of security. If a girdle or bandage makes you feel more protected and secure, it won’t hurt, even though it won’t necessarily help you lose weight or firm up.

I’m not sure if it worked for me like that, but after losing 10 pounds in a few hours, it helped give support for my abdomen. I hated the heavy and empty feeling of my stomach hanging there, my muscles too weak to hold it up, yuck. I wore it for as long as it made me feel comfortable, while easing into an exercise program, (gaining muscle strength by doing light leg lifts and sit ups- very, VERY carefully)

The Sculptures Everyday Wear garments designed to slim and tone, controlled my post-baby jiggle.  Sculptures Shapewear with comfortable invisible control gives you the look of a flattened stomach, slimmer thighs, and curvier curves.  You look better which makes you feel better!  The supportive control seems to improve posture and attitude, use this as motivation to develop a healthier lifestyle with good eating and exercise….and make every day Mother’s Day!!!

 

What gets in your way of making Healthy Changes?

  1. Feeling bad about me and my self image kills my motivation.
  2. I feel I’ve lost control and I’m uncomfortable in my own skin.  I don’t know where to start.
  1. Waiting to see results makes sticking to a healthy plan for change almost impossible.
  1. Until you succeed – you’re stuck, settling for a body that makes you unhappy
  2. Not feeling attractive because of your extra weight makes going to the gym intimidating.
  3. I can’t afford Expensive Fitness equipment that I may never use.
  4. I’m sick of pricey dietary supplements and “fad” diets.

Is a “Mommy Makeover” right for me?

“We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own To Do list

-Michelle Obama

You want to be a good Mom, to have a Happy and Healthy Family.  You put others first and you haven’t focused on yourself in quite some time.  Child Birth and Breast Feeding have left loose skin and sagging breasts and your body misshapen. To take steps to pursue a fresh outlook and feel younger is not self-centered or vain. Because you are so important to your family, having a positive self image benefits not only you, but it can also improve your interactions with loved ones. You may be Mom, but never forget self.

Mommy Makeovers restore the body and remove stretch marks.  The procedure provides improved self esteem and more positive body image via Breast and Tummy Rejuvenation. Preformed simultaneously, under general anesthesia, the Mommy makeover is best performed after your child bearing years.  If you choose to have another child afterwards, some benefits of surgery may be lost.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

After childbirth, many women through diet and exercise are able to lose the redistributed “Baby weight” and regain their pre pregnancy bodies.  Others struggle with a post partum body which is not responding to exercise, stretched skin, or scarring and they want to do something about it.

The Mommy Makeover addresses those areas most often affected. The degree, and combination of procedures are specific to the individual and often performed at the same time. A combination of the following may be scheduled:

Breast:

Breast reduction—excess skin is removed and breast tissue is sculpted into a smaller, more flattering shape.

Breast lift—excess skin is removed and nipples lifted; breasts appear fuller and more youthful.

Breast augmentation with or without a lift—breast implants (silicone or saline) are surgically inserted underneath your breast tissue and occasionally your bench press muscle.

Tummy:

Liposuction—removes excess fat on the abdomen. This is a good option for women with no excess skin and very few or no stretch marks.

Abdominoplasty–   removes excess skin and tightens weakened and stretched abdominal muscles.

It is not only the 20 to 39 year old woman who may consider this option,  Mothers of college age youngsters may find themselves with the time and money to do something special for themselves. The same cluster of physical issues that may have bothered them for years can be addressed.

Pros and Cons

Pros:

Recovery Time- Since a mommy makeover combines a few different procedures at the same time, it allows you to recover from all the procedures at the same time.

Individuality-  Your mommy makeover is custom designed for you and your body, allowing you to choose the procedures that are best for you to accomplish your goals.

Better Skin– Your stretch marks and other skin conditions will be drastically reduced to provide you with the smooth, pre-pregnancy skin you want.

Improved Self-Image- The biggest benefit of a mommy makeover is the change it can produce in a woman’s life and in her opinion of herself.

Cons:

Even with the multiple procedures involved with a Mommy Makeover surgery, serious risks are rare.

Statistics- Any surgery has risks and the death rate from liposuction is reported to be anywhere from 1 in 5,000 to 1 in 50,000. Since EACH one of these operations has a set of complications, the complications POTENTIALLY encountered would depend on the EXACT set of operations you would be having.
