Mommy Makeover in India- My Journey
Ms. Ubah from New York shares her story of how motherhood changed her physical appearance. Her zest for getting back in shape after pregnancy and how she decided to undergo her Mommy Makeover in India.
How It Started
My journey for Mommy Makeover in India started long back before I actually underwent the real surgery. Trust me, it was not the physical part of the surgery that took time, it was the contemplation that took years!
Believe you me, undergoing an elective surgical procedure is not easy. And it becomes all the more difficult when you are a mother of three children! A mother with loads of responsibilities of household and kids, and of course, the heavy surgical bills related to the surgery to take care of.
I stay in New York, which is one of the most expensive cities in the world. And because mommy makeover is a cosmetic procedure,insurance does not cover it.
I was looking for quite a few procedures; which included Liposuction of various body areas, Tummy tuck, and Breast reduction and lift.
One part of me would always tell me that I deserved a nice athletic body- the same that I had before having my children. But the other part would remind me of the huge cost and risks associated with the plastic surgery.
So, I was just not sure about things and constantly at loggerheads with myself about what to do.
It all actually started after having my second baby. Besides the bliss of being a mother again, the baby gave me a huge amount of weight. My boobs sagged and had lumps of fat hanging here and there. I especially hated my tummy, which even 8 months after my delivery looked as if I was 6 months pregnant!
Started gymming rigorously to lose the excess weight, which did help also to some extent. But the stubborn deposits of fat on the love handles, thighs and lower abdomen did not budge. In fact, the more I lost weight, the more apparent my stomach pooch became, which was extremely frustrating.
