Have your past several years been spent being a young mommy with little kids dominating your life? Maybe you're not even a young mommy anymore, and now your kids are grown-ups with families of their own. Either way, that's pretty wonderful, isn't it? Don't you think that being a mother is one of the most worthwhile professions? By being a mother, you also get to be a chef, an accountant, a counselor, a nurse, a teacher, and many other professions all rolled up into one.
Being a full-time mother might also mean that, while you were paying total attention to your husband and your children, you did give your personal appearance the attention you wanted to. No matter! If you are ready to make big changes to your appearance, from changing your hair and makeup to having a tummy tuck procedure, here are some ideas that might help you go forward with a fabulous new look.
The Hair And Makeup - Consider going through fashion and beauty magazines to see which looks appeal to you. Perhaps at one time, you were told that you looked like Megan Ryan, Mary Tyler Moore, or another celebrity. If so, and if took those remarks as compliments, think of how those women changed their hairstyles as years went by. Think of the colors of things like eyeshadow and lipstick they wear. Or, copycat a model in a magazine. You get the picture! Think of getting the counsel of a professional makeup artist and a beautician. They will have the training and the experience to recommend a new look that will be flattering to your face. Consider getting permanent makeup, like eyeliner and brow treatment.
The Major Change - Maybe you realize that it's not just a change of hairstyle or a different type of makeup that is needed. Perhaps you realize that your body took a punch by having those babies and that your stomach never recovered. It may be that you have exercised a great deal, but you are still not happy with the bulge in your tummy area, whether it is small or large. Have you considered having a tummy tuck procedure? If you think that you would like to proceed with that major change to your body, consider talking to your family practice doctor to get the name of professionals that he can recommend to you.
If you do decide to get a tummy tuck, be prepared to stay off your feet for awhile. However, with new procedures, pain can be controlled, and recovery time will more than likely not be as difficult as you thought it would be.
