There’s a new trend in town for women after motherhood and its known as the mommy makeover. These days more and more women are opting to have plastic surgery procedures done to restore their bodies back to what they were before they conceived a child.
One of the most common procedures is breast augmentation. After having a child, this is especially true if you have had multiple children, your breast can start to really sag. They literally just sit there and hang. Come on ladies….I know you know what I’m talking about. Not the most appealing thing right?
Well lucky for you there is something you can do about it. A simple breast lift and augmentation will work wonders. It can take those sagging breasts and turn them into perky little pouches. Having a mommy makeover in Texas is all about regaining your self confidence. Its about feeling good about yourself again.
Add that to the fact most women have a strong desire to look and feel young for as long as they can and you see what’s really fueling this new obsession.
From 2000 to 2006 over 100,000 more women had a breast augmentation. Breast lifts on the other hand went up a whopping 96% in six years. Based on those numbers I don’t see this trend slowing down anytime soon.
The funny thing is this whole mommy makeover in Texas trend is nothing new. Women have been having these types of procedures after pregnancy for a long time. As a matter of fact, back in the 70′s and 80′s breast augmentation was very popular.
The one big difference is what they called it. It wasn’t known as breast augmentation back then. Instead it was called “restoration of the breasts due to postpartum changes”. And guess what? Back then insurance actually paid for this type of procedure. These days it is considered cosmetic surgery and usually not covered by your regular health insurance policy.
If you are interested in getting your own mommy makeover in Texas you will first need to check the prices. I will be honest with you. Having these types of procedures done is not cheap. In 2013 the average cost of breast augmentation surgery was $3,678. And this was just for the augmentation. That wasn’t including hospital fees, anesthesia fees etc.
The price will also vary depending on which doctor you choose to go with. Some doctors will charge over $7,000 for a breast augmentation. That’s a lot of money! And remember, there is a good chance your health insurance won’t cover this procedure. That means all of the money will have to come out of your pocket.
Having these types of procedures is like eating a lays potato chip. You can’t have just one. Most women start off with a breast augmentation and work their way up to tummy tucks and a variety of other procedures. Its easy to get caught up in the mommy makeover in Texas trend and spend over $25,000 on cosmetic procedures. But hey, if it makes you feel better go for it. Who am I to judge?
With any type of surgery you have there will be the potential for complications. The good news however is serious complications are very rare. Most of the time your biggest issue will be pain. You will be in a lot of pain once the procedure has been done.
The first 24 hours will without a doubt be the worst. After two or three days the pain will start to subside and you will normal again. You will have scars on your breast but don’t worry, they will heal and disappear at a pretty rapid pace. Once you are all healed you can sit back, relax and let the world see your new mommy makeover in Texas.
