Mummy Makeover – Popular Post Pregnancy Procedures

Mummy Makeover Surgery for Post-Pregnancy Patients

Having a baby can take a toll on your body – from sagging deflated breasts to a bulding tummy, this is where a series of surgical procedures called a mummy makeover could help.

What is a mummy makeover?

A woman’s body goes through many changes after having a child. The weight gain and weight loss can lead to body contouring issues and stretch marks. While diet and exercise will help you get back into shape, sagging skin and stretch marks will not be affected by either. For these, you need a mommy makeover. This refers to various surgeries used to restore a woman’s glow and beauty after having a child.

Body Contouring Surgery

One of the most common and most popular surgeries for mommy makeovers is  tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). This surgery is essential for reducing the excess skin of the lower abdomen that stretches and sags after carrying a baby to term. Since other parts of the body can be affected by this as well, you there are additional  bodylifting and body contouring  options which will target the torso as well as the extremities.

Breast Enhancement Surgery

The breasts will alter in size and shape during pregnancy and after pregnancy, so many women often undergo breast enhancement surgery. These surgeries will improve the firmness and pertness of the breasts if they are sagging or drooping. Both  breast lift surgery  and  Melbourne breast augmentation  are common for women undergoing mommy makeovers.

Facial Rejuvenation and Non-Surgical Enhancement

The torso and the extremities aren’t the only parts of the body affected by pregnancy. The face can also go through some changes after childbirth. If you want to restore the overall glow and youth of your appearance,  facelift  and other facial lifting options can reduce loose skin and wrinkles. A little lift in the neckline can make your face look thinner, for instance, and some eyelid surgery can shed years from your age. In many cases, you may not need an invasive surgery and can instead rely on  collagen, dermal fillers, and muscle relaxers  for great results with no lengthy recuperation.

Vaginal Rejuvenation with Mona Lisa Touch is also available
