A baby’s birth is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful moments in a woman’s life. Although a newborn brings spiritual wholeness to a family’s life, pregnancy can sometimes affect the woman’s confidence in her body. Naturally, these changes can persist after childbirth. Sometimes it is impossible to recover previous forms with diet or vigorous exercise. Mommy Makeover is a complex plastic surgery that improves the appearance of the abdomen, breasts, buttocks, genitals, or other unsatisfactory areas. The main common types of MMOs include:
Who can have a Mommy Makeover?
MMO surgery is usually performed on women who had more than one pregnancy or have given birth to more than one baby. However, in some cases, Mommy Makeover can be done after the first pregnancy if the patient does not plan to have any more babies in the future. This type of surgery can also help women who have lost a lot of weight.
How to prepare for Mommy Makeover?
How is the Mommy Makeover operation performed?
During pregnancy and breastfeeding, hormonal changes can cause breasts to grow by several sizes, especially if you are expecting a firstborn. At the end of breastfeeding, the enlarged mammary glands shrink to almost the same size as before pregnancy, but the skin and breast ligaments do not return to their original proportions. During an MMO, the breasts can be lifted or enlarged with implants. If a woman is not satisfied with the increased size of her breasts, they may as well be made smaller and lifted.
As the fetus grows during pregnancy, the placenta’s size increases and causes the abdominal muscles to stretch. Abdominal muscle diastase is considered normal, especially during the last trimester of pregnancy. However, it is common for muscle diastase to also persist after pregnancy. For this reason, women often complain of a protruding tummy, which they cannot eliminate with sports and diets. In such cases, it is necessary to suture the abdomen muscles. One of few possible tummy tuck operations can be chosen from: full abdominoplasty, mini abdominoplasty (both of which include diastase correction), or liposuction.
When a woman gains and loses weight due to pregnancy, the excess skin usually remains on her breasts and abdomen, but it can also be on the thighs and arms. Although less common than abdominal and breast surgeries, other body-shaping or restorative operations may be performed as needed, such as buttock augmentation and labiaplasty.
There is no need to remove the threads after having MMO. However, the wounds must be protected, so you may only wash them 3-4 days after the operation. The pain in the incision areas may be felt in the early postoperative period, but medication will be prescribed to relieve it. There might be some swelling, bruising, and decreased sensation for a few weeks after surgery. Compression clothing should be worn for 6 to 8 weeks.
Scarring is one of the most concerning factors for women planning any surgery. Over time, the scars become less noticeable, but they do not disappear completely. Anyway, that’s a minor inconvenience compared to the boosted self-confidence you’ll get.
We recommend not lifting objects over 5 kg for at least three months to avoid complications. The same applies to active physical activity and sports.
