Undoubtedly, childbearing for most women is the most memorable moment in their lives and many of them, if given chance, would do it over again.
But the downside of this is the impact it has on a woman’s body. The hard hit areas include the breasts, abdomen, buttocks, thighs and hips. But this bad news shouldn’t prevent you from enjoying all the pleasantries associated with bringing a new life into this world. You may get discouraged if already you were planning to get pregnant. Similarly, those who just delivered may be wondering how they can go about the matter. Well, here is some good news to get you going – our center has advanced tools and sufficient skill to conduct mummy makeover.
Mummy makeover refers to a combination of cosmetic operations done with the goal of restoring your appearance before pregnancy. A woman’s post-pregnancy appearance can be restored to the before-pregnancy state through the implementation of series of actions. Our medical center does mummy makeover through modifications to the breasts using discarded excessive abdominal skin only of the dermis to add support to the breasts either in the case of simple augmentation or augmentation with mastopexy.
For you to qualify for a mummy makeover, you must be in good health, have a stable weight and willing to change the post-pregnancy changes encountered by your body.
Questions such as what is the right time to partake a mummy makeover, should you wait until you are done having children and how invasive is the procedure may arise. As you hold a one on one conversation with your surgeon, all these questions will be handled and the appropriate feedback given to help you and your surgeon arrive at an understanding. We ensure that we take you through the expected outcomes, the benefits and risks of mummy makeover as well as your cosmetic goals.
The recovery period for a mother, especially a new one, cannot be long because you need ample time with your baby
A mummy makeover is undertaken with the goals of restoring breasts’ perkiness and volume, flattening the tummy and getting rid of excess abdominal skin. This operation is also aimed at recontouring the arms, buttocks, thighs and hips in addition to lifting sagging buttocks and thighs.
As already pointed out, our mastopexy procedure combines augmentation mastopexy with Lipoabdominoplasty using abdominal dermis. We may modify this procedure to include Brazilian Butt Lift or liposuction, depending on the aesthetic goals of individual patients.
The most common procedures for mummy makeover are abdominoplasty, breast augmentation with or without mastopexy, liposuction and in some cases lower body lift.
Various procedures can be safely done individually at different times depending on some factors such as patient’s health, amount of liposuction required, the body type and the post-operative care preferred by the patient.
If the patient is ready to spend a night at the medical centre, more operations can be carried out safely. At times the patient may be advised to undergo the series of operations at different days of the week especially if your surgeon anticipates extensive surgery.
Age factors may also be a consideration but most of the patients on whom mummy makeover has been done are of ages 20 to 65
There are different parts of the body where liposuction can be done and is used as a common technique for getting rid of excess fat deposits. The technique involves making small incisions on the skin. A cannula is then inserted into the incisions and gently used to loosen the fat and suck them out. We conduct tummy tuck by removing excess tissue and tightening the remaining skin and abdominal muscles to have a toned midsection.
Tummy tuck and liposuction when done independently have a set of limitations. For instance, one may achieve a taught skin through a tummy tuck alone but there may be some stubborn sagging fat deposits that do not adhere to exercise and dieting. On the other hand, a mother may get rid of excessive fat but still have an irritating sagging skin.
Under such circumstances, Lipoabdominoplasty is the most appropriate procedure to adopt. It helps to realize both a flat skin and rid off fat belly. This is the best way to experience the advantages of the two popular surgeries all in one pack.
This is best done if you have no intentions of having more children and project a stable body weight.
Upon delivery of the baby, sagging breasts may be part of the sides effects of pregnancy, baby nursing, a genetic trait or force of gravity. The skin tends to lose its elasticity, making the breasts to also lose their shape and start to sag. In order to restore these breasts into their original perky state which is more youthful, a mastopexy is normally undertaken.
A mastopexy has the goal of reclaiming your youthful contours and also boost your self-confidence. Augmentation mastopexy is a combination of breast lift and implant. It perfectly fixes the changes that result from pregnancies, significant weight fluctuations and breast feeding. This is best undertaken for patients with small as well as droopy breasts with loose skin.
In case a patient’s loose skin is minor, simple operations such as breast implants may be all that is needed to reclaim breasts’ upright position. But if the looseness is far much greater, then advanced augmentation mastopexy will be required. Women with adequate breast volume but which loosen and droop may have to undergo only mastopexy to correct the condition.
Besides the breasts and the abdomen being the most visibly impacted areas following a delivery, you may also have to undergo a facial and pigmentation.
Dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections are required to address lines and wrinkles in the face. They have little or no downtime.
Pigmentation on the other hand can be used to refine skin colour and texture changes so as to have a beautified appearance.
It is not difficult to tackle post-pregnancy body changes. You just need to hold a fulfilling consultation with your doctor to establish what will best work for you.
