The physical changes experienced during pregnancy reveal themselves mostly in the abdomen, waist, hips, legs and breasts. Gained in a short time and then rapidly lost weight causes unwanted changes in some parts of the body. During pregnancy, sagging may be seen in the breasts with the growth of breasts and subsequent weight loss. In the same way during the pregnancy abdomen skin and muscles stretch and once the pregnancy is over the skin and the muscles become loose. In order to recuperate these unwanted results, the combination of procedures are called Mommy Makeover.
What surgeries does Mommy Makeover include?
Not all pregnant women experience the same effects. Some women do not require some of the treatments. Mommy makeover includes all the surgeries that might be needed:
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Lift
- Breast Reduction
- Vaginal Plastic Surgery
Breasts and abdomen are the parts that change the most during pregnancy. For this reason mommy makeover is mainly focused on those parts.
During the pregnancy, breasts get bigger nearly half their size, however afterwards they shrink and a sagging occurs in the skin.
During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles, skins and tissues will stretch in order to safely protect the baby. Unfortunately, these tissues and muscles may not be able to return to their previous shape. In abdominoplasty, abdominal lifting can be done by using the caesarean scar. The non-desired appearance of caesarean scar can be improved. With breast implants, breasts can get their previous shape and with breast lifting it is possible to eliminate sagging.
How is Mommy Makeover performed?
Mommy makeover is a combination of different surgeries. Breast, abdominal and vaginal surgeries are performed. You can get more information about all these surgeries on our Plastic Surgery page. If a patient needs all those surgeries, it has to be planned in terms of schedule because it is not possible to perform all the surgeries at once. There has to be 3-6 months of intervals in between so that the body can heal well.
