Becoming a mother is an incredibly special time in most women’s lives.
Although it is a magical moment, childbearing can bring numerous changes to a woman’s body. Some of them are only temporary, however, there are permanent changes that can occur that can impact a woman’s self-confidence.
“Many women come to see me after they had their children to seek advice on how they can regain their confidence and pre-baby body”, says Dr Michael Yunaev, Principal Surgeon at Breast & Body Clinic.
A mummy makeover surgery is composed of a combination of techniques with the aim of providing patients with a harmonic result and achieve a pre-pregnancy aesthetic. The surgery is tailored to each patient individual needs and may include:
One of the biggest issues women experience post-pregnancy is related to their breasts appearance. The breast changes derived from pregnancy can go beyond the sagging. Nipples can change, areolas can grow in size, and breasts can actually lose volume. Breast deflation or decreased breast size is a very common complaint. A number of surgical techniques can be used, depending on each patients needs. They can include a breast lift, breast reshape, breast augmentation and breast reduction.
Post-pregnancy body concerns also include changes in the abdominal area. Common consequences of are stretch marks, excess skin, excess lower abdominal fat pad, abdominal muscle separation (which in some cases can lead to hernias). The aim of a Tummy Tuck surgery is to remove sagging skin and excess fat from the middle and lower abdomen and repair any separated muscles.The result is a flatter, firmer and more shapely abdomen.
Liposuction, also known as lipectomy or lipoplasty, is a procedure that improves the body’s contours and proportion by removing excess fat deposits to slim and reshape specific areas of the body. This procedure can be of great assistance in restoring a woman’s pre-pregnancy body.
Liposuction can remove up to 5 litres of fat with relative safety during one session.
