Mommy Makeover

A female body goes through various phases in a woman’s lifetime. The changes a woman undergoes during or after pregnancy and after childbirth is substantial. Most women do not have the same physical appearance after pregnancy and/or childbirth and find it tremendously difficult to regain the physique they once had and admired.

Although entering motherhood is a beautiful experience, losing the previous body proportions that you would carry with so much grace can take a toll on your confidence or even be detrimental to your mental health.

What is Mommy Makeover?

You, the patient, are required to provide as many details as clearly as possible to help your doctor make the best decision for you regarding things like the amount of restoration, type of incision, position of incision and type of implants to be used.

Though mommy makeover is a combination of multiple procedures, it is generally done in a single surgical session. This helps to minimize discomfort and saves a lot of time allowing for better recovery.

Tummy Tuck

Pregnancy causes the skin in the abdominal region to stretch greatly. The stretching od the abdomen and the abdominal skin creates stretch marks and causes the skin to hang loose. Such form is deemed unsightly by many women and they seek to regain their pre-pregnancy shape with the help of the tummy tuck surgery, otherwise known as “abdominoplasty”.

The sagging of the abdominal skin can be due to one or more of the reasons mentioned below:

  1. Pregnancy
  2. Heredity
  3. Ageing
  4. Weight fluctuations

Tummy tuck surgery, or abdominoplasty, helps you achieve an even, flat and well-toned abdomen. However, the tummy tuck procedure does not explicitly deal with stretch marks. The stretch marks may be reduced or removed if they are located in the regions of excess skin which will be surgically removed.

Abdominoplasty takes about 1.5 to 5 hours from start to finish and is commonly performed under general anaesthesia. The recovery time is typically 4 to 6 weeks after which regular sexual activity may be resumed.

Liposuction, prominently known as “lipo”, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is not limited to women. Pregnancy causes a woman to put on a lot of extra weight and causes excess accumulation of fat in a woman’s body. Liposuction helps to get rid of these stubborn fat deposits in very large volumes quickly and effectively.

Liposuction is generally used to remove fat deposits from the following areas:

  1. Abdomen
  2. Waist
  3. Buttocks
  4. Hips
  5. Thighs
  6. Arms
  7. Face
  8. Chest

In mommy makeover, liposuction is commonly performed along with breast lift. It is usually performed under general anesthesia and complete rest for at least a week is recommended for recovery.

Breast Augmentation

The onset of pregnancy and motherhood causes the breasts of a woman to lactate to allow for breastfeeding. This alters the appearance of breasts and can increase the asymmetry of the breasts.

Breast augmentation, commonly known as “boob job”, is a procedure that improves the shape of the breasts to achieve the desired result of roundness, fullness and adjust the volume.

There are different ways of performing this procedure. So, it is essential to have a consultation with your doctor well before the procedure to decide the procedure which is suited for your unique self.

Breast augmentation, or “augmentation mammoplasty”, typically employs the use of breast implants of various types, shapes and sizes as required by the patient.

Breast Lift

Breast Augmentation is not meant to correct the droopy breast very well because it is not the motive. However, the sagging of the breasts that may typically arise from breastfeeding, ageing or weight fluctuations can be corrected by performing a “mastopexy” (a.k.a. breast lift).

Breast lift, on their own, typically do not make use of breast implants. Breast lift combined with breast augmentation generally takes advantage of using breast implants.

This relatively safe and widely popular 2 to 3-hour surgery is usually done under general anaesthesia with a recovery period being about 1 week.
