How Does Breast Augmentation Fit Into a Mom’s Life?

Motherhood is a beautiful thing. I’m so grateful to be living the mommy life. But while the process of becoming a mom made a huge positive impact on me as a whole, it definitely changed my body in ways that I hadn’t expected.

I loved my body before I had a baby and I love my body now, but I do miss some of the youthfulness and confidence I felt pre-pregnancy. 

Many moms consider breast augmentation to help get back to their pre-baby body and reignite their confidence. Undergoing a procedure is a big decision, though, and you may not be sure if the process will realistically fit into your life and all your body’s day to day mom duties.

I’ve heard some of my fellow moms mention the same concerns: How long would they be out of commission? What results would they get? How would life be different after?

I did some digging of my own, and here’s what I learned. 

What are the options?

Some of the most popular types of augmentation are silicone implants, saline implants and fat grafting. Silicone implants come in a teardrop (anatomical) or round shape; saline implants are silicone shells that are filled with saltwater; and fat grafting is a subtler option that uses fat taken from another part of your body. The option you choose depends on your personal preference, body type, and the look you’re going for, and you can even mix and customize procedures to create your own unique size and shape.

How long does recovery take?

Recovery is a step-by-step process. According to Dr. Derek Ford, who specializes in plastic surgery and breast augmentation in Toronto, you can be back on your feet and moving around the same day and back to most types of work in about a week. You’ll need to stay away from heavy lifting for a few more weeks. Your surgeon will clear you for more activities at your follow-up appointments and will give you specific instructions to follow so you can be totally back to normal ASAP.

What will the results be after?

Practices like Dr. Ford’s now offer 3D previews that can show you an in-depth look at what your results may be so you can get a feel for your new look before you commit. It takes some of the guesswork out of your decision and will give you a glimpse into what your post-surgery body will be.

What is life after surgery like?

Once you’re recuperated, you get to go forward with a new bod and new and improved sense of confidence. A study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons showed a “very large” improvement of quality of life after breast augmentation. No regrets there.

If you’re one of many moms out there wondering if a breast augmentation makes sense in your life, know you’re not alone. With so many options and new ways to get back on your feet more quickly than ever, it’s definitely possible to fit into your busy mommy life. 

We all deserve to love the bodies we’re in. If plastic surgery can help you reach your body confidence goals, it’s a beautiful thing. 

Life is not about the numbers, it’s about doing things you LOVE!

My newsletter went out today. I wanted to share it with you. But first I’m going to say that numbers do effect certain things in terms of a bloggers life. Well of course it plays a huge roll with the amount of people you reach out to. The more people the better right? I totally understand and I’m not complaining. I’m just saying that it shouldn’t’ be the focus of your online existence or you will drive your self crazy. lol

Not EVERYTHING should be the focus of how many likes and followers you have. It shouldn’t be an obsession. It becomes so superficial. Being on line for me is about connecting with people in a positive and real, down to earth kind of way. It’s about sharing my story.

“Followers” and “likes” isn’t’ my driving force behind what I do.

I do appreciate them of course!

You should be passionate about your work and let the rest flow like water.

Does that make sense?

Let me just show you my newsletter and if you can please share your thoughts with me that would be great. You can also see it HERE. Just please remember I’m just trying to be positive and not offend anyone. I’m expressing my self with honesty. This is not focused on one person. It’s just the overall picture I’m getting online. I’m also learning, growing and living. 🙂


Happy Summer!

The nice weather is here and with the nice weather comes beautiful outdoor activities and spending time with my girls. I’m not going to be blogging as much this summer so I’ll be away until September. But don’t worry I’m still active on all my social media platforms. I’m also vlogging all summer. I really love vlogging because it feels really relaxing. I don’t like the editing part but I’m dealing with it.

I’m going to be honest here and say that it makes me really sad that people focus on numbers and followers on the internet. It’s always about statistics and who has the highest numbers. Lately i’ve been thinking that life is too important to focus on that. I’m more about having a wonderful experience and doing things I love and what makes me happy. If people decide to follow me I’m truly grateful but I’m not going to be upset or cry if I don’t get  “likes” and “followers”. Life is too important.

I’m truly grateful to all of you who support me and help me out. I actually have gotten to know a lot of my followers and I’m more about creating connections. Connecting with people, being real and down to earth. Life is not perfect, we are not perfect and it’s okay!  I hope this makes sense.


So I hope you join me on my VLOG Summer Adventures. I’m a mom, a wife and I like to live a simple and fun life. I don’t know what life has instore for me but I’m taking it one day at a time!

Have a magical and safe summer,
