Pregnancy is a wonderful experience, with the best in results when you get to hold your little one in your arms. Even with as much as you love being a new parent, you may not love the toll that your pregnancy or multiple pregnancies have taken on your body.
There are several plastic surgery procedures and other treatments that can restore a tummy that is no longer taut and lift breasts that have lost their youthful appearance. If you are ready for a mummy makeover, you may be wondering which procedures you can best benefit from.
The tummy tuck procedure
Pregnancy stretches the skin of your stomach as the pregnancy progresses. Stretchmarks are common, and there may also be some separation in the muscles in your abdomen. All of this can result in loose saggy skin that cannot be addressed with diet and exercise alone. According to the experts at Form and Face plastic surgery, Bondi Junction patients will need to turn to surgery as the only way to truly and effectively address excess saggy skin on the stomach.
The tummy tuck procedure will remove the skin from your stomach and also repair those abdominal muscles.
Breast surgery options
Pregnancy can have a marked impact on your breasts, no matter what size breasts you have. Breast surgery can help to restore your breasts to what they were prior to pregnancy.
Options in breast surgery include the following.
Breast lift. This procedure repositions sagging breasts so that they sit higher on the chest.
Breast augmentation. This procedure can restore volume to breasts that have lost a lot of volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Breast reduction. This procedure is less commonly requested as a part of a mummy makeover. However, for those who’ve long wished to reduce their breast size, post pregnancy is the best time to get it done.
Many patients find that combining the lift with the augmentation or reduction can help to produce the best in results.
Liposculpture targets stubborn fat deposits that can’t be easily budgets with a healthy diet and active lifestyle. If you’ve found that pregnancy has left you with some stubborn areas of fat, you may just benefit from the liposculpture procedure.
Areas where stubborn fat can often collect include the following.
Both the inner and outer thighs
Liposculpture may be combined with one or more other procedures so that you can get the best in results.
Nonsurgical treatments as a part of a mummy makeover
There are several great nonsurgical treatments that you can incorporate into your makeover, so that you can get that refreshed and youthful glow back.
Anti-wrinkle injections serve two purposes. They help to reduce the appearance of those fine lines and wrinkles that are visible when we laugh, smile or frown. And they can help to prevent these wrinkles from deepening, as the injections work to temporarily freeze the muscles responsible for these wrinkles. The injections are a non-invasive but effective way to keep your face looking youthful.
Dermal fillers can help to add a youthful plumpness where you need it the most. They can also help to reduce the visibility of wrinkles. Perhaps you’re looking for plump lips, or you’re looking to get rid of those fine lines on your forehead. Fillers can help to give you that freshened look you’ve been missing.
Self-care as a new parent should also include peels and other skin care routines that help you to present your best fresh face.
During your consultation for your post-pregnancy makeover be sure to discuss all of your hopes for the cosmetic procedures that you are interested in. Realistic hopes and goals from plastic surgery and other treatments can help to ensure much higher results satisfaction.
