The Mile High Mommy Makeover: Get Your Pre-Baby Body Back

If you’re a new mom, you know that having a baby is a life-changing experience. It’s a time of excitement, joy, and wonder as you watch your little one grow and explore the world. But it’s also a time of sleepless nights, constant feedings, and endless diaper changes. With so many new responsibilities, it’s no surprise that working out and getting back into shape can seem daunting. As you give everything to nurture a new life, your health and wellness can often take a backseat. Post-baby bodies are different – the understatement of the year! While some women may be able to snap back to their pre-pregnancy shape relatively quickly, many others are left with loose skin, stubborn fat, and weakened abdominal muscles that no amount of exercise or dieting can seem to fix. It can be frustrating and disheartening, especially when you’re used to an active lifestyle and enjoy spending time outdoors in beautiful Denver.

The Challenges of Post-Baby Bodies in Denver

If you live in Denver, you know how much people love to spend time outdoors. Whether hiking, biking, skiing, or rock climbing, there’s no shortage of activities in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. However, if you’ve recently had a baby, you might find it hard to keep up with your outdoor-loving friends. Your body might not move the way it did pre-baby.

The truth is, having a baby can take a toll on your body, and it can be challenging to get back to the fitness level you once had, especially when you have that new mommy fatigue. 

  • During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles stretch to accommodate the growing baby, which can cause them to become weak or separated. This can result in a protruding belly that is difficult to flatten, even with rigorous exercise.
  • Breastfeeding can cause the breasts to enlarge and stretch, leading to sagging and loss of volume.
  • Stretch marks may also develop on the breasts, abdomen, and other body areas.
  • Many women experience stubborn pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise, particularly in the hips, thighs, and waist.

While these changes are normal and natural, they can often significantly impact a woman’s self-confidence and body image. A mommy makeover is designed to address these changes and help women regain their pre-baby bodies to feel comfortable and confident in their skin.

What is a Denver Mommy Makeover?

Every new mom’s body is unique, as are her concerns and goals regarding a mommy makeover. Just because Denver is known for its incredible outdoor scene doesn’t mean every woman partakes. But taking time to get outside and move your body is a great way to make room in your busy schedule for self-care. And what better way to get out there than with a body that says, “I’m fit!” 

At the Denver Liposuction Specialty Clinic, we listen to the patient’s “wish list” of what she wants to target and enhance. Then we customize a range of procedures to transform and makeover her body. And who doesn’t love a makeover?

How to Address Sagging Breasts in Denver

If a patient wants to address sagging breasts, liposuction breast reduction can be performed to reshape the breasts, resulting in a more youthful and shapely appearance. 

Get a Flatter Tummy

Unhappy with excess skin and fat in the abdominal area? Let us help with a tummy tuck that can be performed to remove the excess skin and tighten the muscles, resulting in a flatter and more toned tummy.

Contouring the Body with Denver Lipo

If you want to eliminate stubborn post-pregnancy fat, VASER liposuction might be your best solution. This minimally invasive technique uses ultrasound energy to break down and liquefy fat cells before they are removed through a small incision. But VASER lipo offers more than just fat removal. It also stimulates collagen production, improving skin elasticity and a tighter, smoother appearance in the treated area. [1] For mommy makeover candidates, this added benefit can help restore a youthful and toned appearance to the body, giving them the confidence to take on the world.

Whether you look forward to hiking in the Rockies, skiing in the winter, or biking through the city, a mommy makeover can help you feel more comfortable and confident in your body as you engage in your favorite activities or start your love affair with the outdoor lifestyle. It can be discouraging to feel like your post-baby body is holding you back, but with the help of our skilled plastic surgeons, you can achieve the desired results and feel like your best self! Let us help make you a Coloradie-hottie!

Benefits of a Mommy Makeover for Outdoor Lovers

A mommy makeover can have numerous benefits for outdoor enthusiasts in Denver. Here are just a few:

Improved Physical Fitness After Baby

Imagine enjoying the crisp mountain air, hiking the scenic trails, mountain biking, and feeling confident and comfortable as you do. Patients will regain control of their core after a tummy tuck, changing their workout game.

Increased Confidence To Get Outdoors in Denver

Many women feel self-conscious about their post-baby bodies, holding them back from getting in shape after the baby. A mommy makeover can help you feel proud of your body, so you can fully embrace the outdoors and create a workout routine that supports your busy life.

Enhanced Quality of Life

A mommy makeover is more than just a cosmetic procedure; it’s a journey toward rediscovering confidence and self-esteem. By choosing to customize their treatment plan, women can take control of their bodies and address specific concerns that may have arisen after childbirth. The result is not only a physical transformation but a mental and emotional one, as women experience a renewed sense of self-worth and an enhanced quality of life.

Living in Denver means having access to some of the most beautiful outdoor spaces in the country. However, having a baby can make it hard to enjoy all the mountains offer. If you struggle to keep up with your kids, friends, and routine, a mommy makeover can help you get back out there and thrive. With a mommy makeover, you can return to doing what you love and living life to the fullest!

Recovering From Plastic Surgery for Outdoor Enthusiasts

During your recovery, you must listen to your body and avoid pushing yourself too hard too soon. Rest and relaxation are critical to the healing process, so take the time to slow down and allow your body to recover. However, this doesn’t mean you have to stay cooped up indoors! Our team can help you find outdoor activities that are safe and appropriate for your recovery stage, so you can still enjoy the beauty of Colorado while taking care of yourself.

Walking After Surgery

Starting to walk as soon as possible after surgery is vital for several reasons. First and foremost, walking helps to prevent blood clots from forming in the legs, which can be a severe complication. Additionally, walking helps improve circulation, speeding up the healing process and reducing swelling.

Walking can also help to boost the patient’s mood and overall well-being by providing a sense of accomplishment and a change of scenery. However, it is important to follow your doctor’s instructions and not overdo it, as excessive activity can harm the body during healing.

The Effect of Nature on Healing

Given the benefits of natural daylight, spending time outside in the Colorado sun can be especially beneficial. [2] The state’s sunny climate and beautiful natural surroundings offer a chance to do so. According to one study, patients randomly assigned to view a nature scene of still water surrounded by trees were observed to have substantially benefitted their recovery outcomes. Within just two days after surgery, they reported feeling much less anxious, and within 3 to 4 days, they could reduce their use of pain medicine. [3] This suggests that exposure to the real thing – Denver outdoors – will have an even more significant impact on recovery.

However, taking precautions to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays is essential, especially after plastic surgery. By following your surgeon’s post-operative instructions and using proper sun protection, you can safely and effectively enhance your recovery while enjoying all Colorado offers.
