When discussing a mommy makeover, plastic surgeons are typically referring to procedures for the body and legs. However, motherhood can also affect facial features in several ways. Looking after children can be tiring, and mothers don’t always get the sleep that they need to feel well rested after a busy day.
Another issue that can affect the facial features of mothers is diet and nutrition. Finding time to maintain a healthy diet is often difficult for new mothers. Issues can range from excess weight to unhealthy-looking skin. Combined with lack of sleep, poor diet has a detrimental effect on facial aesthetics.
Skin Tightening & Smoothing
When a mother experiences weight issues after having a baby, the skin around the face and neck can begin to appear loose. There are several other potential causes for loose facial skin, all of which require a targeted treatment approach.
The first treatment option for loose facial skin is topical creams and other similar skincare products. If you do not see marked improvement, the next step is booking a consultation with a cosmetic specialist. Skin tightening and smoothing procedures can rejuvenate facial features.
Adding Volume to Lips
Have your lips lost volume while you were busy bringing up a family? For many mothers of teenage children, drastic changes to once-youthful looks only become apparent when the kids get older. When you don’t have a minute to rest, taking stock of facial aesthetics is not always a top priority.
If your kids are all grown up and you now have time to start looking and feeling your best, consider procedures to restore lost volume in the lips. Non-intrusive options such as lip fillers and Botox® are affordable and quick. For a more permanent solution, many mommies opt for lip augmentation surgeries.
