I am purely putting this post together for completely selfish reasons…. Oh Honey…. Dear… Patrick …. You better be paying attention….
I did a post on my Aunesty.com site awhile back about getting my Pre-Baby Body Back – and while I haven’t been terribly successful at it, I have decided I want a partial Mommy Makeover –
You see, I would love to get a little work done after these last two babies. With the first four I was able to get back into shape, but they were natural child births. These last two well Carson was an emergency c-section after 12 hours of labor, and Courtney was a planned c-section 15 months later. Oh and 5 months after having Courtney, I had another surgery that required several two inch long incisions in my abdomen, for a total of 13 incision scars. So three surgeries in 20 months, plus two full term pregnancies in that time, yeah I want some work done to help me get back to the before….
While I know I am eventually going to need a tummy tuck to get rid of that little fold of skin above my section scar, I know I can help get some of my stomach back in shape with working out more. Getting the girls lifted would be nice too, but since I am naturally a D to a DD, I know that lifting them will only help for so long. But more than any of this, I know that any cosmetic surgery is not in my near future or even in my distant future, so I scoured Groupon for ways to get a mommy makeover for the things that I can do now that will make an overall difference.
First and foremost – Hair Removal – Now my daughters, Angel and Becca, and I have discussed this one for years. To not have to shave everyday would be a lifelong gift. We have looked at several at home options, but honestly, I don’t trust any of them. I would rather go in to a specialist, let them do all the work and let me forever be hair free. Because each of the hair removal places are only good for new patients and one treatment area, then I would suggest that my hubby get me more than one of these, for example, let’s say each of these Groupons:
- Hair Removal Small Area $99 – Underarms – Progressive Wellness Medical Center
- Hair Removal Small Area $99 – Sideburns – Any woman with an Endocrine Disorder Understands this one – – Medspa at The Women’s Center for Excellence
And if he is really feeling generous: Hair Removal Large Area $299 – Full Legs – Sanctuary Salon & Day Spa
Next let’s work on all over body – Body Wraps, Cellulite Removal, Fitness Classes – I am all for any sort of instant gratification when it comes to getting my body back, but I also understand that in order for it to stick, I need to help it out. So I figure a few instant gratification Groupons mixed in with some long term help would be the most beneficial body transformation setup. My Picks:
- Cold Laser Treatments– $199 for 6 Treatments – Timeless Laser Rejuvenation Center
- LipoLaser ultrasound-cavitation treatments – $139 for 3 treatments – Sabe Spa & Wellness
- iSlim infrared fat-burning treatments – $39 for 1 Treatment – MicroSpa
- 60-minute infrared body wrap – $39 for 1 Treatment – Energy Wellness Center
Finally – It’s time for some pampering – A facial, a massage, hair-do and a mani-pedi are essential in completing the Mommy makeover. Now if your hubby wants to be a dream boat, he should purchase the facial and the mani-pedi for you and a friend, so you can have a mommy day/girls day of it.
- $29 for a haircut, style, and deep-conditioning treatment – Box Office Hair
- $35 for a 60-minute massage – Gifted Touch
- $35 for one OPI manicure and pedicure – Vida Wellness
- $35 for one essential facial with a glycolic peel or a microdermabrasion treatment – Affordable Facials
- $22 for one mani-pedi – Ingrid Rodriguez
Of course all the Groupon’s I have selected are for the Orlando area, because that is where I am from, and after all I am hoping that my tough, rugged, handsome and charming hubby will read this post…..
