What is Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeover, known as maternity aesthetics, is an operation that is usually performed in a single session and as a single surgery, by combining several plastic surgery operations for the individual to remove the unwanted changes that occur after pregnancy in the mother and to gain an aesthetic body appearance. Generally, the Mommy makeover operation procedure includes liposuction with fat removal product in the abdomen and belly area due to the change after abdominal enlargement and weight gain during pregnancy, tummy tuck operation to remove the sagging abdominal wall and excess skin, breast tissue that grows and then shrinks due to breastfeeding and milk production includes breast enlargement operation with breast implants and breast lift operations to aesthetically change the drooping and shrinking breast appearance, and finally labiaplasty to the labia minora, which is called the enlarged vaginal inner lips due to birth.
During pregnancy, the body starts to gain weight and store fat. While this is evolutionarily necessary, it can be very difficult for a woman who cares about a newborn after birth to try to dissolve stubborn fat tissue that does not melt around the abdomen and belly.
In addition to the fat stored in the abdomen and belly, a saggy belly appears with the weakened abdominal wall muscles and abdominal skin along with the growing abdomen during pregnancy. No matter how much sports are done, this saggy skin often cannot return to its former state and cannot be tightened. Women lose weight soon after giving birth, and after this period of weight loss is over, the final appearance of the body usually remains stable. The saggy abdomen appearance after pregnancy is formed due to the uterus expanding as the baby grows and after pregnancy, this saggy belly accumulated stubborn fat tissue and weakened abdominal wall, can often only regain its former form with the help of aesthetic operations such as liposuction
and tummy tuck
Another body part that changes with pregnancy and newborn care is the breasts. Skin elasticity during pregnancy is different for everyone. Breasts grow hormonally during pregnancy and enlarge during the breastfeeding period, increased elasticity and skin loosening with the decrease of milk-producing tissue inside after breastfeeding, and saggy breast appearance due to the formation of excess skin due to breasts growth. Breast and breast tissue, which grows continuously during pregnancy and breastfeeding, lose breast volume and shrinks after breastfeeding. During this shrinkage, the enlarged breast skin remains stable, so even though the amount of milk-producing breast tissue and fat decreases, the breast skin appears saggy. Breast lifting operations to lift saggy breasts and breast enlargement
operations with breast implants to enlarge shrinking breasts can be solutions for mothers at this point to remove such breast sagging, regain the pre-pregnancy appearance or be in a better condition than before.
Although aesthetic operations such as liposuction
, tummy tuck
, breast implants
, and breast lift
, are performed to provide a tight appearance by removing excess skin and fat from the abdomen and surrounding areas, and to ensure the aesthetic appearance of the breast, which changes constantly during pregnancy and breastfeeding, affect the external appearance to a large extent. One of the most aesthetic organs is the vagina and vaginal opening in the genital area. The vagina is a flexible organ, it usually takes its old form after birth, but after birth, the inner lips of the vagina, which are called vaginal lips, can expand and color changes can be observed. Labiaplasty is a genital aesthetic medical-surgical operation performed in an anatomical structure called the vaginal inner lips, by removing excess skin from the labia, reducing its size, making it symmetrical, and for all other discomforts. The labia minora can be large or saggy for various reasons, among which are pregnancy and the person's natural tissue structure. With labiaplasty, the excess tissue on the enlarged and sagging inner lips is removed by the surgeon.
All these operations can be performed to reconstruct the mother's body, which has changed during and after pregnancy and to provide the aesthetic appearance desired by the mother. The Mommy Makeover procedure is designed individually, and each operation is performed by expert plastic surgeons by expert and experienced surgeons. Each operation can be performed separately, but most of the time it is done in combination under anesthesia. Mommy makeover should be done in sterile and licensed medical centers, by expert teams and surgeons authorized by the Ministry of Health.
Who are good candidates for Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeover operation is a combination of surgical operations to remove the permanent effects after pregnancy. For this reason, you must first be in good medical health. You should be in a good enough condition to receive anesthesia, be healthy enough to survive the post-operative recovery period, and you should not have a health problem that could prevent the mommy makeover operation. You should be at or close to your ideal body weight. A Mommy makeover operation is not an operation for weight loss, it is an operation that allows mothers to be completely renewed after birth. Your mental health should be good, you should be realistic about your body image and your post-operative expectations should be realistic. One of the most important points is that you should have left childbreading. Structures such as abdominal wall muscles, fat tissues, breast and breast tissue, and labia minora, which are reconstructed in the operation, should heal for a while. Being pregnant again will negatively affect the results of the operations performed on these areas and will also strain your body. You must not smoke and you must not drink alcohol. Smoking reduces the amount of blood carried to the tissues, so the healing process slows down, and the risk of infection increases.
What operations are involved in Mommy Makeover surgery?
Mommy makeover is a combined operation performed on multiple body parts in a single session with a personalized combination of multiple operations. The main purpose of these operations is to make the body contour aesthetic again in the changed mother's body after pregnancy and to eliminate the permanent changes caused by pregnancy. Mommy makeover operations include liposuction, breast lift, breast enlargement with implants, tummy tuck, and labiaplasty operations.
Liposuction can be defined as the removal of stubborn and insoluble fat tissue, which cannot be reduced by various weight loss methods, by absorbing it from the body. After pregnancy, it is possible to reduce the stubborn, non-melting, regional excess fat tissue in the abdomen and belly area. During pregnancy, mothers tend to gain weight, evolutionarily, excess calories are often converted into adipose tissue immediately, and this is a natural process. Although the weight gained during pregnancy varies from person to person, these weights are usually concentrated in the abdomen and belly area. Some weight loss is experienced after pregnancy, but the enlarged abdominal skin contains fatty tissue that is difficult to burn. For this reason, sports, diet, and detoxes alone may not be enough.
Liposuction is a method that allows the removal of adipose tissue with a vacuum device by making a small incision approximately in the area where the fat will be removed in the operating room environment. After this method, stubborn fat tissue is removed and the body contour is aimed to be in the desired shape. Although it is usually performed under local anesthesia, mommy makeover operations are performed simultaneously with other operations under general anesthesia.
Usually, with both the weight gained during pregnancy and the baby growing in the womb, the abdomen visibly enlarges. Although this swelling decreases over time with the birth of the baby after pregnancy, it is not easy for the skin and abdominal muscles to regain their original form. Sometimes sports, corsets, detoxes, and non-surgical methods fail to tighten the abdominal skin.
A Tummy Tuck operation is especially performed for weight loss, pregnancy and to remove your saggy tummy appearance after pregnancy. The most correct surgical intervention is a tummy tuck, especially for problems such as saggy abdominal skin, damaged and relaxed abdominal wall muscles, and non-removing adipose tissue. A tummy tuck can eliminate the appearance of cracked skin, especially in the lower part of the belly button. In the tummy tuck operation, the incision to be made in the abdomen is determined according to your needs. Through this incision, the abundant abdominal muscle is reconstructed, and the excess and unwanted adipose tissue is removed together with the skin. By opening the incision in the bikini area under the underwear, a natural look is obtained, so you do not have to hide the scar after the operation. Under general anesthesia, the abdominal region is tightened and the belly button is restructured.
Breast Lift and Breast Implants
Breasts are one of the organs that change the most in the body after pregnancy. During pregnancy, both its volume increases continuously and the amount of milk tissue increases with the effect of hormones, and the breast size increases. The breast size, which grows during breastfeeding, begins to decrease when breastfeeding ends. As a result of this breast reduction, the tissue inside the breast skin decreases and the breast takes the appearance of a saggy bag. Many mothers are dissatisfied with this appearance and worry about it. Unfortunately, this image that occurs after breastfeeding cannot be removed with sports or any other method. Breast lift operation for reshaping the sagging breast, giving it a young and aesthetic appearance, and breast augmentation with the use of breast implants to enlarge its size can be the solution.
A breast lift operation allows the nipple to be restructured and given a lifted appearance by cutting the breast skin from around the nipple to under the breast in the form of a keyhole and removing the excess skin. The scar usually begins to decrease over time and gains a natural appearance.
Breast Implants, on the other hand, are an operation that enables the breast volume to be enlarged by placing implants that are biocompatible and of which you can choose the size of the breast since the breast skin has the appearance of a saggy bag with the reduction of breast tissue.
Many parts of the body change after pregnancy and childbirth. The first of these changes is in the genital area. Problems that may occur in the genital area affect the person's health, hygiene, and self-confidence.
Labiaplasty is the process of removing excess tissue to reshape the inner lips of the vagina with surgical intervention. These inner lips, namely the labia minora, are not visible from the outside, but due to some reasons, their overgrowth and drooping appearance are among the genital aesthetic problems. Genital aesthetics is achieved with labiaplasty. Labial asymmetry is eliminated. It is done under anesthesia.
Mommy makeover is the process of performing all the above-mentioned operations at the same time in a single session by custom planning. You can have what you want from these operations and not what you don't want, but when a mommy makeover is mentioned, it covers all of the mentioned liposuction, tummy tuck, breast lifting, breast implants, and labiaplasty operations.
The operation is performed according to the needs of the person, so there is no specific operation time. It is done under general anesthesia.
What is a non-surgical Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeover ensures that the unwanted changes that occur after pregnancy and childbirth are removed in a single session. There are various micro-needling methods for stretch marks that occur after pregnancy. Microneedling is minimally invasive needling of the skin to stimulate skin regeneration and reduce stretch marks. Thanks to a device with multiple needles, invasive painless punctures are made on the upper layer of the skin, thereby triggering skin regeneration.
Generally, the production of collagen and elastin around the vagina is triggered by using laser energy to eliminate the changes in the genital area. Thanks to this trigger, the vagina can be tightened and strengthened. It especially supports and strengthens the formation of ligaments around the bladder and urethra. Thanks to this method, postpartum bladder problems can be eliminated.
Postpartum weight gain is a nuisance. They do not melt and are stubborn. There are minimally invasive liposuction methods for this. The fat is removed by suction with a simple small incision. It is not non-query but invasive.
If you want to change your breast appearance with sagging, shrinking and excess skin after birth, you can enlarge your breast size with the minimally-invasive fat transfer method. You can take the fat tissue in your body with liposuction and inject it into the breast, so you can both have a lifted and enlarged breast and get rid of excess fat and provide your body contour.
It should be noted that all these non-surgical methods are minimally effective and do not provide dramatic results. You may often need more than one session and application to see the effects. In addition, if you want big changes, a surgical mommy makeover operation may be more suitable for you. Consult your doctor.
