I have to say cosmetic surgery is something that i am really interested in. I personally have never been under the knife but it isn't something that I'd rule out if i had the finances to back it up. However i don't think its something to be entered into lightly. Here's what the lovely Isobella has to say:
Which cosmetic surgery could transform you into a yummy mummy?
If you’re a good mum, looking after number one doesn’t mean looking after yourself most of the time. However, every once in a while, even the best parent in the world needs to think about their own wants and needs – and for many, this could mean a little pampering, wining and dining. For some, this could even include having a little cosmetic surgery.
Want to maintain that radiant yummy mummy look? Here’s five treatments you might consider:
There’s no getting around it – pregnancy and breastfeeding change your boobs beyond any recognition. That once perfectly-formed pert pair could have gone any number of ways – quite literally. For this reason, some mums could find that they look to have a boob job. You’ll want to wait until you’re sure you’ve made your final additions to your family before going under the knife and having this treatment, as implants can inhibit breastfeeding – internationally recognised as the number one way to give your child the best start in life.
OK, so it’s not recommended to have liposuction to get rid of your baby weight as soon as you’ve given birth. And it’s normal to carry a little extra weight during breastfeeding – you’re eating for two (or more if you’re tandem feeding) after all. Ultimately, many mums struggle to find time to exercise in the first couple of years of a child’s life – they’re too busy being a good mum. So if you’ve got problem areas, liposuction could be a way to lose a little of that extra weight, while maintaining a healthy diet and fitting in exercise wherever you can.
As the celebrity mags have proved in recent years, even the skinniest minis can get that dreaded orange peel skin. But weight changes during and after pregnancy can certainly be a trigger, so some mums may decide to look into their options for anti-cellulite treatments.
Varicose vein removal
One unfortunate side effect of pregnancy is varicose veins, which can develop be aggravated when the growing uterus puts pressure on the pelvic veins. These days, surgeons use the latest ultrasound and laser techniques to rid patients of the dreaded red or purple patches.
It’s the problem that dare not speak its name – the genital changes that affect almost all new mothers. Granted, it’s a pretty intimate form of surgery, but it could be an essential one if you suffered a difficult birth and have had subsequent problems. But it could give you the confidence to get back in the saddle, so to speak – and make a few more additions to the family in the process!
Thankyou so much Isobella for this thought provoking post.
What are your thoughts on the yummy mummy procedures. I have to say the media constantly show us photos of new mums with flat bellies and pert boobs. Did you feel pressured to get back into shape after childbirth. I even know girls who say they don't want children because it will ruin their figures??
I think some women use children as an excuse as to why they are overweight. Yes some people put on a huge amount of weight but sensible eating and exercise will make you lose the weight right?
Gwen Just look at those abs !
The stunning J Lo !
