Have you ever considered cosmetic surgery? I have to tell you, IF I received a phone call telling me that I had won a free mommy makeover, I would be absolutely ECSTATIC! A Mommy Makeover is a combination of post-pregnancy plastic surgery.
As someone that has had multiple medically necessary facial reconstructive surgeries in the past, the thought of having cosmetic surgery FOR THE FUN OF IT has always intrigued me. When I was a teenager, I wanted a nose job. And since I’ve worn dentures from the age of ten, I would LOVE to have dental implants. Yes, I said ten. I was born with only six permanent teeth buds, so I never had “normal” dentition. Dental implants would be SO nice. At least the lower jaw.
Since having my son, my wishlist has expanded a little.
This is me, at about 32 weeks pregnant…
and here about 34 weeks…
Carrying my son is probably one of the most fulfilling experiences I have ever had, especially having experienced two miscarriages and having been told that I would never be able to carry a baby to term. However, pregnancy changed me and stretched me in ways I didn’t know I could be stretched. I delivered at 36 weeks and he weighed in at a whopping 8 lb 8 ounces. Yep, eight and a half pounds and four weeks early. I told the doctor that if I had gone full term, I would have delivered a toddler. With all that stretching going on, my cosmetic wish list (*eh-hem) stretched a little to include…
- Liposuction—well, I do have problem areas that I can’t blame on pregnancy… namely, my hips and thighs. Had them before I got pregnant, still have them, and think I would have them if I lost another 150 pounds. These hips and thighs aren’t going anywhere without a little help, so liposuction would be a must.
- A Tummy Tuck—Let’s just say that after having gained a lot of weight, and being in the process of losing it, I am a little too familiar with the term “muffin top.” Body shapers can only go so far, ya know. I have teased my husband for months now that after I lose another 40-50 pounds, I want to have a tummy tuck.
- Laser stretch mark removal—cuz having the atlas of the entire Northern Hemisphere embossed on my abdomen is not pretty, regardless of how my times my husband says it is. Just saying.
Okay, you’ve seen my mommy makeover wish list…what’s on your list? What would you have done if you won a free mommy makeover?
