Today in New York it’s almost 80 degrees and it’s absolutely gorgeous outside! Yet, I can’t seem to manage to enjoy the warm weather, because all I keep thinking of is how I detest being seen in my summer shorts and t-shirts. Perhaps it’s goofy, but I’m incredibly self-conscious and have a negative body image ever since having my two children. My figure just doesn’t look the same and it has never fully returned to its pre-baby appearance. Not to mention, my skin has taken a beating from my reckless 20’s and all of the sun worshiping I use to do to obtain a deep dark tan has left noticeable damage!
Now at the age of 41, I’m unquestionably done having babies (knock on wood) and considerably more mindful in protecting my skin, so I’m hoping to get a Mommy Makeover the moment I’m able to financially afford one. I would like to enjoy the second phase of my life and wish to feel comfortable in my body. Here’s the facts, dieting and exercise will help you shed pounds and maybe firm up a number of key problem areas, but all of the abdominal crunches and push-ups on the planet aren’t going to resolve the loose, stretched skin around the abdomen, stretchmarks, and sagging breasts attributable to being pregnant. These areas need to be surgically restored back to their pre-pregnancy shape by a board certified plastic surgeon.
I know a lot of people feel ashamed and embarrassed about getting cosmetic surgery or believe that you need to be content with your body and take your lifetime bruises plus scars and wear them as badges. I’m not one of those particular people and I’m all for getting work done if it causes you to feel better, more comfortable and self-confident. Believe me, if I could manage to pay for a makeover right this moment I’d march my tush in immediately and get the surgery! Of course, there are risks, but I believe the benefits outweigh them.
Oh, I would also get dental veneers, but that’s a whole different story!
