Tired of Hearing You Look Tired?

Tired of Hearing You Look Tired?

The steps to post-partum rejuvenation starts with the most important part of your body: your face. While you may have problem areas elsewhere, your face is the first thing you see in the morning and the first thing others see. Many new mothers say not only do they feel tired, but they look tired.  Age, the stress of pregnancy and motherhood, along with the hormonal changes the body undergoes throughout the entire process, often culminate in a tired looking face.

This appearance is sometimes caused by a loss of fat in the face, allowing the area beneath the eyes to lower, as well as your cheeks. Botox and fillers are a great, quick fix for these problems as they simply fill in the areas and breathe  new life into your face. Bringing the cheeks up with some filler causes the lower lids to appear shorter, eliminating most of the tired look. Properly done, injectable procedures will not stand out like so many TV shows and celebrities might lead you to believe. In fact, your husband may not even be able to tell what is different, but your tired appearance will be gone. Seeing yourself in the mirror will no longer be a disheartening experience. It will provide you the self-confidence needed to journey forward in life with your family.

Stay tuned for next week when we look at what else cosmetic surgery can do to get your body back after pregnancy!
