My Mommy Makeover Experience in Mexico City: A Journey to Self-Confidence

I'm Harper, a 45-year-old mother of four amazing children. In July 2020, fueled by my daughters' encouragement, I embarked on an exciting adventure to Mexico City to explore my options for a mommy makeover with TopPlasticSurgeonsMexico.

After going through multiple pregnancies, I was left with sagging breasts and loose belly skin that made me feel incredibly self-conscious.

Despite my husband's reassurances, I decided it was time to do something for myself and give myself the gift of a Mommy Makeover surgery. The idea had been in my mind for over 20 years since my first baby, and now, with the support of my family and friends, I finally mustered the courage to go for it!

"Two friends, who had undergone different procedures at Top Plastic Surgeons Mexico, recommended I check them out."

Although they hadn't specifically had a mommy makeover, their positive experiences with liposuction, and tummy tucks convinced me to give it a shot. To satisfy my curiosity, I delved into online research, watching YouTube videos and reading reviews about mommy makeovers in Mexico. However, I quickly realized that nothing truly prepares you for an overseas plastic surgery.

Getting my Mommy Makeover in Mexico City was an exhilarating experience!

My first step was to reach out to Top Plastic Surgeons Mexico via email. From the moment I submitted my online paperwork until the day I walked into my surgeon's office in Mexico City, nerves overwhelmed me. Thoughts raced through my mind: "What if Dr. Bernardo wasn't the right fit for me? What if he said there was nothing he could do?..." It might sound crazy, but this was all uncharted territory for me. During the reservation process, my oldest daughter decided to join me on this journey for moral support. I'm incredibly grateful she did because having family support and someone to assist you after surgery is invaluable.

First consultation with my surgeon,

I vividly remember my first day in Mexico when I met Dr. Bernardo for the initial consultation. He introduced himself, and we engaged in a simple conversation about my concerns, medical history, and aspirations. After examining my stomach and taking breast measurements, he preemptively answered all the questions I had meticulously jotted down. It was as if he could read my mind!

After a detailed explanation of the procedure, I got to try on breast implants. Opting for a natural look, we decided to go with round silicone breast implants. When I placed the implant in my sports bra and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I can't begin to describe the overwhelming anticipation and joy I felt! Following the consultation, nervousness consumed me. It was hard to believe that my consultation took place the day I arrived, and my procedure was scheduled for the next morning.

On the day of surgery,

My daughter accompanied me to the clinic where the procedure would take place. Nerves kept me up the night before, but as I got dressed and hooked up to the machines, the nurses explained every detail of the process. Surprisingly, I found myself more excited than anything else. My surgeon came in, made a few drawings similar to those from my first consultation, and then it was time to say goodbye to my daughter. The next thing I knew, I woke up from what felt like a quick cat nap. I stayed at the clinic for two nights.

"The first night at the clinic was the most challenging, as the anesthesia gradually wore off".

The first night at the clinic

was the most challenging, as the anesthesia gradually wore off. The subsequent days, about a week in total, involved getting accustomed to the sensation of heavier breasts and a tighter stomach, akin to the aftermath of an intense ab workout. Moving around was a bit slow, but the prescribed breathing exercises aided in regaining mobility. One week after the surgery,

the highlight of recovery arrived—the removal of my drains. Those surgical drains, although necessary to prevent fluid buildup, were indeed a hassle to deal with!

My entire journey in Mexico lasted about two weeks. Taking the necessary time off work was crucial, and it proved to be sufficient for recovery.

Following the pre-op tips and adhering diligently to the post-op rules made the recovery process a breeze!

Fifteen days post-surgery,

I experienced minimal pain and swelling. However, my primary focus shifted to maintaining the fantastic results of my mommy makeover. Once back home, I was determined to follow every single instruction given to me.

Now that the journey is behind me, I am incredibly proud of the experience. As someone who usually finds businesses claiming to be like a family cliché, I can honestly say that TopPlasticSurgeonsMexico's team truly embodied that sentiment. I am forever grateful to Dr. Bernardo and the entire team for giving me back my confidence.

I feel more attractive than ever, confidently wearing bikinis, even my husband looks at me and says, "You look beautiful!"

If I could offer one piece of advice to readers, it would be this: Don't think you're too old for plastic surgery. You're not, and you'll only regret not doing it sooner!
