While children can be the best part of your life, it is no secret that having babies can cause your body to change. Motherhood changes a woman’s life drastically, and although so many of these changes are wonderful, some of the physical changes may be less desirable. As a society, we see becoming a mom as the end of the years of being young and beautiful. However, this is not the case, and being beautiful does not always have to be synonymous with being young.

Mommy

Nothing about motherhood makes a woman inherently less attractive, and in many ways, it shows the resilience and power women have. It is normal for the changes your body goes through after giving birth or the lack of free time you now have to make you feel less beautiful. However, there are many things you can do to feel beautiful after babies.

 

Exercise and Activity

Staying fit is about more than just how your body looks; it is also a great way to improve your overall mental and physical health. While you may have had the time to spend hours in the gym or out for a run before having children, that extra time is probably dedicated to your kids now. A great way to combine these responsibilities is to choose exercise activities that could be fun for everyone.

 

There are many options for moving your body other than hitting the gym. A daily walk is a great way to keep your body happy and healthy, and this can quickly be done while pushing a stroller or with your kids close by on a bike or roller skates. Having a treadmill or other exercise equipment in your home can allow you to work out while the family watches a movie or during naptime.

Chin Liposuction

Having a baby can stretch your skin immensely in all areas of the body, including the face. Sometimes exercise isn’t enough to get your body looking the way you want it to. All the running in the world cannot force your skin to stretch back , which is why many plastic surgeons offer chin liposuction. This procedure removes excess skin and fat. It is a relatively simple surgery that can drastically improve your body image.

 

If your stretched skin makes you overly self-conscious, a chin liposuction procedure could be a great solution. Doctors have developed these procedures so that women do not have to forfeit their physical appearance to have children.

Breast Reduction

Many women experience changes to the shape and size of their breasts after pregnancy and nursing. Pregnancy triggers biochemical changes within the body, and many women see an increase in breast size until after they have finished breastfeeding. After, the breasts can decrease some, and this can leave them looking saggy.

 

If this change in the appearance of your breasts causes you to feel less confident about yourself, breast reduction surgery is a great option to improve the size and shape. Breasts are an essential part of motherhood, but also important to maintaining confidence for some women.

 

Alleviate Stress

Motherhood can come with added stress, and stress can lead to lots of issues that can make you feel worse about your appearance. Keeping your mind in good health will prevent issues like wrinkles and aging, as well as motivate you to maintain other aspects of your life like a healthy routine.

Skincare

As we get older, skincare becomes more and more important for maintaining a healthy and youthful appearance. It is essential to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized to maintain a healthy-looking glow. Research supports that wearing sunscreen every day will help prevent signs of aging tremendously.

 

Prioritizing Time for Beauty

Being a mom takes up a lot of your time, but it is crucial to set aside time for yourself each day to do the things that make you feel beautiful. A half an hour in the morning for skincare and makeup can allow you to spend the rest of the day feeling like your best self.

 

It is important to remember that your needs matter too. Finding time in your day to do the little things like reapplying sunscreen or makeup can be just as valuable to feeling attractive as exercise or eating healthy. The number one key to feeling beautiful is to remember that being a mother doesn’t mean you have to lose yourself or what makes you feel good about your appearance.

Having a baby can stretch your skin immensely, and sometimes exercise isn’t enough to get your stomach looking the way you want it to.

Also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen area. It is a relatively simple surgery that can drastically improve your body image.

 

If your stretched skin or stubborn belly fat makes you overly self-conscious, a tummy tuck could be a great solution. Doctors have developed these procedures so that women do not have to forfeit their physical appearance to have children. Also, if you had a C-section, it is possible for your doctor to incorporate removing your scar into the procedure.
