Having a baby is one of the most amazing experiences a woman will go through, but the effect it can have on our bodies is sometimes difficult to reverse. When your world becomes all about one (or more) tiny person, your figure can be the thing that takes the toll with breastfeeding and pregnancy leaving the chest sagging without volume, stretch marks in places you didn’t think were possible, a thicker waist that seems to hold on to fat more easily, and loose skin on the stomach that won’t go away through exercise or dieting.
You’ll often hear clinics talking of a ‘mommy makeover’ but, with every story different, it can be hard to understand exactly what that is. We explain the basics of what the ‘mommy (or mummy seeing as we’re British) makeover’ entails and how to get the best out of one if it’s something you’re considering.
To start off with, remember that a mommy makeover isn’t so much a set process of treatments, as the best combination of treatments for you. It’s hard to give an exact definition of the treatment, as each person has a completely different experience from it. Key areas that the treatment commonly (but not exclusively) targets are: sagging breasts; flabby tummies; excess fat on the hips, buttocks, thighs and arms; and stretch marks.
To accommodate the needs of a nursing baby, the breasts invariably grow during pregnancy. The breastfeeding process then applies a new set of pressures to the area. A breastfeeding baby might pull down on the nipple, resulting in sagging. When a mother stops nursing, her breasts gradually stop lactating, which may cause drooping or deflation. Mastopexy (breast uplift) reverses sagging by removing excess skin and contouring the shape and size of the chest. This raises the position of the nipple and areola without interfering in a woman’s ability to breastfeed in the future. A breast uplift can restore a mum’s youthful perk and overall vitality.
Some new mothers lose breast volume and definition as a result of breastfeeding. Breast augmentation is a great way to address these concerns. Dr Resat offers saline and silicone implants in a wide array of sizes and shapes. Whether you want a firm, round feel or a natural teardrop effect, Dr. Resat Aktas Clinic can fit you for the bust of your dreams.
To facilitate nursing, a pregnant woman’s breasts begin to produce colostrum during her second trimester. Breast enlargement, however, may continue even beyond the baby’s due date. This growth may be too excessive for some women, so they may want to consider a breast reduction. Depending on a woman’s shape and size, Dr Resat may use an anchor reduction method or a vertical reduction technique. To learn more about the benefits of breast reduction, please consult our attentive staff.
One of the most bothersome areas for new Moms is the belly. Pregnancy expands and reshapes a woman’s midsection. The most obvious of these changes is the outward belly protrusion, also known as the “baby bump.” But some women also struggle with diastasis recti, which is a separation of the abdominal muscles down the centre. Dr Resat can tighten the stomach muscles as part of his comprehensive tummy tuck procedure. The popular surgery also removes excess skin and unwanted fat deposits.
Weight gain is natural and normal during pregnancy, but if you gained more than anticipated, then Vaser liposuction could be a great solution. Vaser is short for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. Its powerful waves soften unwanted fat efficiently and beautifully. The fat is then vacuumed out of the “problem areas” through a thin tube called a cannula. In Dr Resat’s skilled hands, the cannula contours thighs, arms, hips, or wherever pregnancy has had the most effect.
A typical mommy makeover requires a general anaesthetic to keep you comfortable, no matter how many areas you are treating in a particular session. Dr Resat will skillfully position all incisions so they are barely visible, even during bikini season. We don’t want scars or insecurities to get in the way of your beautiful new look.
The mommy makeover procedure may last up to four hours. Dr Resat is meticulous in his work, and he takes the time to create the results you desire. With a gentle touch and an artful eye, Dr Resat delivers satisfaction, one mommy at a time.
Anaesthesia prevents you from driving, so please arrange for a loved one to transport you to and from the procedure. Most mommy makeover beneficiaries can return home the same day as their surgery, but every surgery varies.
Give yourself at least two weeks to rest and recuperate following your mommy makeover transformation.
You may be able to enjoy peaceful walks to promote healthy circulation, but please do not push yourself. Recovery takes time, and you have some world-class mummy-ing to do!
Instead of experiencing a lift here or a tuck there, you can get all of the above in just one session. The mommy makeover procedure provides overall improvement by treating various areas simultaneously. It is a recipe for truly astounding results. Dr Resat’s approach to a mommy makeover is holistic and artistic. He does not merely focus on one body part or region; he brings balance to the entire body.
For many new mothers, weight gain affects more than just the belly region. Liposuction can help slim your curves, while a breast uplift and/or tummy tuck can address excess, loose skin. Regardless of your unique needs, Dr Resat can customize a mommy makeover specifically to you.
