Mommy makeover is a combination of aesthetic body contouring procedures, which are performed to correct the physical changes caused by pregnancy. This method is very popular in the world, but also in our country.
The approach to each patient and each of her problems is individual.
The combination of surgical procedures is individual. Sometimes only two interventions can be done, and sometimes the aesthetic surgeon will advise you to do more interventions in order to achieve complete results.
Here’s what the mommy makeover includes:
- abdominal tightening after childbirth
- breast lift and augmentation or breast reduction
- liposuction (butt, thighs, arms)
- Lifting and increasing the buttocks
- vaginal rejuvenation – vaginoplasty
Since the chest and abdomen are the most susceptible to changes during pregnancy, the largest number of mothers opt for a combination of these two procedures – breast lift and enlargement. Breast augmentation with implants restores lost fullness to breasts, while breast lift defines their shape. For new mothers who are fighting a battle with oversized breasts that have not shrunk even after breastfeeding, breast reduction surgery is the right choice.
In addition to the breasts, the muscles and skin of the abdomen change the most during pregnancy. Abdominoplasty is a solution not only for excess skin and fatty deposits on the stomach, but also for the problem of stretch marks, which are one of the most common companions of every pregnancy.
Patients often opt for liposuction of some parts of the body, which they often combine with a buttock lift procedure, using their own fat as a natural filler in the fat transfer procedure, and some patients, in case they need it, also opt for vaginal rejuvenation – vaginoplasty.
Depending on the combination of procedures that the aesthetic surgeon has suggested, the method of performing them also depends. Sometimes it is possible to perform the entire mommy makeover at once, while sometimes, for safety reasons, the procedure needs to be divided into a series of sessions.
