Motherhood is the essence to what it means to be a female. There is no joy in the world in the world comparable to holding your own baby in your arms .
But childbirth is a major major deal and so is nursing your babies, which can leave their marks on Mummy’s body. The tummy , breasts and the thighs take the brunt giving sagged skin, loose muscles, stretch marks and an overall dull and flabby unpleasant body.
Most women would like to retain their shape and size after pregnancies, if they had a choice. Mummy Makeover exactly offers that . A survey done by the American Plastic Surgery Society shows that 2/3 rd of women would have gone for a mummy makeover procedure, if cost wasn’t an issue.
Mummy Makeover is a combination of two procedures – BREAST RESHAPING PROCEDURE AND ABDOMINOPLASTY
Breasts become small and saggy after pregnancy and age.
Volume Loss – After breastfeeding the breasts loose support and volume and look deflated . They loose their perky appearance and become flat and small.
Skin Stretch – Pregnancy and breast feeding causes significant change in the size of the breasts. Suddenly enlarged breast skin fails to spring back to normal especially once volume is lost. It then appears loose and saggy.
The Nipple- Areola complex – also changes. Nipple may get elongated and thicker with the pregnancy hormones while the Areola enlarges after breast feeding.
Breast lift surgery helps to resuspend the loose breast tissue and also makes it more firm and round . It also repositions the nipple at a higher level at a more pleasing position.
However after just only breast lift procedure you may end up with one size smaller but a firmer breast.MORE ABOUT BREAST LIFT
Post pregnancy breast lift alone works fantastic in ‘ large size breasts’ . Many such women choose to go one size smaller but with a firmer and better shaped breasts.
However, it may not suit someone lean and thin with smaller breasts, to begin with. The lift needs to be combined with an implant to restore volume
Ideal candidates –
While most people get deflated breasts , some may find their breasts grow in size after pregnancy. This is common with the ones who have large sized breasts prior to having children.
Some of them have ongoing problems like back pain and skin rash under the breasts . They would like to address this issue now , once the family is complete and there is no more breast feeding.
Breast reduction removes excess of skin and breast tissue and contours the breast shape. The nipple is placed to a higher and much better position.MORE ABOUT BREAST REDUCTION
Just like breasts, the post pregnancy tummy is not something women are happy about.
5 elements ruin their figure.
1. The Skin stretch of the pregnant tummy is enormous and leaves behind a flabby pouch below.
2. Stretch marks, which grow pearly white and stay there for ever
3. The vertical muscles in the middle of the abdomen also spread apart and elongate They never coming back to normal on their own.
4. The belly button ( umbilicus) pouts out loosing its youthful vertical shape.
5. Hips and inner thighs attract maximum fat
A well performed tummy tuck is an important component of a mummy makeover which can address all these issues. Tucking the midline muscles also narrows your waist line to restore an hourglass figure to a certain extent. It also benefits lower back pain and stress incontinence to a degree.
Much younger women with great skin tone without much muscle separation can get away with Mini Tummy Tuck procedure with less down time.MORE ABOUT TUMMY TUCK
Tummy tuck removes the flabby apron of skin and fat along with tightening muscles. Liposuction takes away fat from hard to reach areas of the flanks (love handles) , hips and thighs.
This procedure offered as a part of Mummy Makeover, is necessary to sculpt the more obvious hip and flank area once the waist line is narrowed with tummy tuck. The skin over the liposucked areas shrinks to give a firmer feel and better contour.MORE ABOUT LIPOSUCTION
Along with the breast and body, vaginal births through the narrow birth canals affect the tone of the vagina. The pressure stretch and the hormones stretch the labia (Vaginal lips) beyond repair. The Vagina looses length and becomes pouty and patulous.
Women these days don’t feel shy to complain about their genital problems. Enlarged unsightly labia, visibility under tight clothing , discomfort at exercise and sexual dissatisfaction are few of the many problems faced by women.
There are various procedures offered under Vaginal Aesthetic Surgery (VAS) , which can be combined with Mummy Makeovers that can also save cost while you are under the same anaesthetic.
