Pregnancy and childbirth not only are the most special times of their lives for women, but also cause significant changes in different parts of their bodies. During pregnancy and childbirth, loss of volume and sagging of the breasts of women are common. During pregnancy, due to the stretching of the abdominal muscles, the skin of the abdominal region may sag. Excess weight may occur in the thighs, abdomen and hips. The most effective solution for women who want to rejuvenate their bodies and have a more shaped and fit body after having a child is Mommy Makeover, in other words, torsoplasty or mommy makeover procedure.
Breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction are generally the most preferred procedures by women. The most important feature of these procedures is that they collectively address the changes created by the delivery and breastfeeding process in the female body. The most important advantages of maternity aesthetic applications can be expressed as obtaining the results of all procedures at the same time, achieving the body image they want at once, and combining the healing process of more than one procedure. The point that should be noted is that the applications to be made within the scope of Mommy Makeover are planned according to the needs and expectations of each patient, that is, Mommy Makeover is a customizable procedure.
What is Mommy Makeover Aesthetics?
Mommy Makeover are combined aesthetic surgery procedures applied to eliminate aesthetic problems caused by changes in different parts of the body due to pregnancy and breastfeeding periods.
The most important feature of maternity aesthetic surgeries is that they collectively address all the changes that occur in the woman’s body during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Thus, the results of the surgical procedures applied are obtained at the same time, and if it is deemed appropriate for the patient, more than one combination can be used, eliminating the need for anesthesia for more than one operation.
How is Mommy Makeover Aesthetics Performed?
Mommy Makeover encompasses procedures that help women regain their pre-pregnancy body shape. During pregnancy and breastfeeding, it can cause problems such as volume loss and sagging of the breasts, excess weight around the stomach, and shape changes in the fit areas.
Most women, especially in their 30s and 40s, need a breast lift after giving birth and breastfeeding because during breastfeeding, the breasts fill with milk and expand. Although the size of the breasts reaches the pre-pregnancy size after the breastfeeding period is over, excess skin sags as a result of shrinkage. Women who complain about the small size of their breasts before giving birth can also have breast augmentation at the same time.
The most important changes during pregnancy occur in the abdomen. As the abdomen grows, the abdominal skin is stretched. In some women, the postpartum skin does not take its pre-pregnancy form and does not acquire a flat appearance. There is a risk that tense muscles will not return to their tense state with regular exercise. For this reason, abdominal aesthetics is frequently used within the scope of Mommy Makeover.
In the process of preparing the body for delivery, fat accumulation is more in the abdomen, hips, and thighs. These fats often cannot be removed by diet and exercise alone. The first step in patients who need tummy tuck and liposuction is to remove excess fat from the area with liposuction. Thus, it is possible to remove the excess real skin.
As is the case with the breasts, sagging can also be seen in the hips after delivery. This is common in women who have more excess weight in their hips during pregnancy. Accordingly, it may be possible to achieve a more upright and aesthetic-looking butt by injecting fat from the abdomen and thigh areas into the butt. Since it is applied together with BBL liposuction, it also provides the advantage of correcting the contours of the areas with excess fat.
In Which Situations Is Mommy Makeover Aesthetics Applied?
Mommy Makeover is applied if the expectant mother is not satisfied with the changes that occur in her body at the end of the delivery and breastfeeding process, and if there is also no obstacle to the surgery.
What Is Aimed with Mommy Makeover Aesthetics?
Mommy Makeover is applied to eliminate the problems that occur after pregnancy and childbirth and cause the woman to have aesthetic concerns. As a result of the procedures determined for each patient within the scope of Mommy Makeover, it is ensured that the patient reaches the desired body shape. This situation also stands out as a factor that positively affects the self-confidence of the patient.
Not only women’s body structures and expectations, but also the changes that pregnancy and breastfeeding make in their bodies are different. Therefore, not every procedure performed within the scope of Mommy Makeover needs to be applied to all patients. The procedure to be applied to each patient varies based on the needs.
What are the Types of Mommy Makeover and Application Techniques?
Mommy Makeover is a set of surgical procedures that are personalized as a result of patient-specific consultations. Breast aesthetics, tummy tuck, liposuction, and BBL aesthetic procedures can be performed within the scope of Mommy Makeover.
It is one of the most preferred aesthetic surgery procedures after delivery. The large amount of estrogen produced by the body during pregnancy enlarges the breast tissue. Thus, the mother’s breast is prepared for the breastfeeding process. As the breast tissues shrink after the breastfeeding process is over, the skin surrounding the breast causes the breast to appear deflated or empty and tend to sag. In such cases, breast lift and other breast aesthetic surgeries may be preferred as needed.
The incision to be made within the scope of breast aesthetics may be different depending on the type of breast implant, the degree of enlargement to be achieved, the anatomy of the patient, as well as the preference of the patient and the surgeon. Inframammary fold incision, peri-areolar incision, trans-axillary incision and transumbilical incision are possible.
It is not always possible to restore the skin sagging that occurs in the lower abdomen during pregnancy, with regular diet and sports. In this case, tummy tuck aesthetics should be applied. Another common problem experienced by women after pregnancy is diastasis recti. This condition is characterized by the separation of the abdominal muscles from each other as a result of excessive stretching of the Linea alba, tissue or fascia located in the center of the rectus abdominis muscles.
The enlargement of the uterus during pregnancy causes tension in the abdominal muscles. Tissue thinning due to pregnancy hormones stretches and softens. Although some widening in this area is considered natural, a separation of more than 2 cm is considered a problem. Resolving diastasis recti requires tightening the abdominal muscles, removing excess skin, and reshaping the lower abdomen.
On average, 6 weeks after delivery, the uterus returns to its normal size, and the body usually regains its original weight within 6 to 12 months. In this process, the mother can exercise regularly by acquiring healthy eating habits. Effective results can be obtained from body-shaping procedures applied to women who are close to their ideal body weight.
For the application of tummy tuck surgery, at least 6 months must pass after the breastfeeding period is over. Thus, the painkillers used during the surgery do not pass to the baby through breastfeeding and since the pregnancy hormones that cause the softening of the tissues are not found in the body, tissue union is better after the surgery.
Liposuction is among the most frequently applied procedures within the scope of Mommy Makeover. Liposuction is basically a body-shaping procedure applied to remove fat deposits that are resistant to regular diet and exercise in certain parts of the body and to have more harmonious and shaped body lines.
Liposuction can be applied under local or general anesthesia depending on the characteristics of the area to be removed, the width of the area to be removed, the amount of fat to be removed, and whether it can be combined with a different procedure.
Although liposuction can be applied with different methods, minimal incisions are made in the application area in the standard liposuction procedure. Fats are taken out by placing cannulas through these incisions. Another method is to absorb the fats from the body with a syringe or vacuum. The liposuction procedure can be combined with the fat injection procedure, if needed, for the patient.
One of the parts of the body that undergoes changes during the pregnancy and postpartum period is the hips. Thanks to the BBL aesthetic applied in combination with the liposuction procedure, the hip area is shaped by using the regional fats in the patient’s body.
Fats obtained by liposuction from the abdomen, legs, or waist are processed and injected into certain points on the butt. BBL is considered to be an extremely advantageous procedure because it provides the opportunity to have fuller, rounder, and more contoured hips on the one hand, and thinning in the donor areas of the body from which fat is removed, on the other. In order to apply the BBL method, it is required that there is sufficient fat in the patient’s body, that the sagging of the butt is not severe, and that the patient’s skin elasticity is sufficient. In cases where fat is removed from the waist area within the scope of BBL aesthetics, it is possible to achieve a fuller and shaped hip appearance as a result of thinning the waist area.
Who Is Eligible for Mommy Makeover?
Mommy Makeover can be applied to women who want to eliminate the deformations caused by pregnancy and breastfeeding. However, before the decision of Mommy Makeover is made, a decision of suitability is made after some patient-specific evaluations are made.
Patients who will undergo maternity aesthetic surgery are required to be at or close to their ideal weight. At least 6 months must pass from the date the patient gave birth, and the postpartum recovery period must be completed. In addition, it is required that the breastfeeding process has been completed at least 3 months ago. In addition to all these, the patient should not have a health problem that prevents her from undergoing surgery.
What Should Be Done Before Maternity Aesthetic Surgery?
If the patient to whom Mommy Makeover will be applied smokes and takes aspirin or other drugs with blood thinning properties, she should stop smoking and taking blood thinners 3 weeks before the operation. In addition, consuming slimming products and herbal products such as flaxseed and green tea should be suspended. In addition, multivitamins and consumption of foods that can cause constipation should be avoided.
What Should Be Considered After Mommy Makeover Surgery?
The time when the recovery process will be completed after maternity aesthetic surgeries may vary depending on the number, type, and scope of the procedures performed for the patient. In general, the healing process can take from 7 to 10 days to several months. Pain, edema, and bruising may be encountered in the early period after the surgery.
In order to experience a fast and healthy recovery process after maternity aesthetic surgeries, some points should be considered according to the procedures applied. Patients who have undergone a tummy tuck and breast aesthetic surgery should avoid heavy sports activities for 8 weeks. Again, depending on the procedure applied, it may be necessary to wear a sports bra and corset for 4 weeks. It may be possible to start light sports approximately 4 weeks after the surgery.
It is important to avoid movements that will cause strain for the 2 weeks following the tummy tuck surgery, walking by leaning forward for the time specified by the doctor, and lying in a “V” shape. If a drain is placed after plastic surgery, it should be waited for the drains to be removed before taking a shower. It is very important to take the drugs prescribed by the doctor regularly, to prevent the formation of pain and infection, and also to support a fast and healthy healing process.
Frequently Asked Questions About the Aesthetics of Mommy Makeover
What Operations Does Mommy Makeover Include?
Different surgical procedures can be applied within the scope of Mommy Makeover, which can be applied as combined surgeries that can be personalized as a result of patient-specific consultations. Plastic surgery operations performed within the scope of Mommy Makeover include breast aesthetics, tummy tuck aesthetics, BBL aesthetics, and liposuction. It is not possible to apply the same operations to every patient to whom Mommy Makeover will be applied. As a result of the evaluation made for each patient, the aesthetic operations to be applied based on the needs and expectations of the patients are determined. Depending on the nature of the operations to be performed and the general health status of the patient, it may be possible to perform the operations in combination.
When Should Mommy Makeover Be Performed?
Mommy Makeover aesthetics should be applied to patients at least 6 months after the delivery date. The patient must have had a healthy recovery period and the healing process must have been completed. Likewise, at least 3 months must have passed since the end of the breastfeeding period of the patient. These factors are very important in terms of returning the hormones in the patient’s body to normal. In addition, the patient who will undergo Mommy Makeover should have reached their ideal weight or a weight close to their ideal weight. After the necessary evaluations are made to ensure that the general health status of the patients who meet all these conditions is not an obstacle to the surgery, a decision of suitability can be made on an individual basis.
How are the Mommy Makeover Surgery and Recovery Process?
Maternity aesthetic surgery is planned specifically for the patient. Depending on which procedure or procedures will be performed, the duration and completion time of the surgery may vary. The recovery process after maternity aesthetic surgery may vary depending on the procedures applied. One of the most important points to be considered is to follow the doctor’s recommendations after the surgery and to take the prescribed drugs regularly. In addition, it should be remembered that the healing process is specific to each patient.
Do Swelling and Bruising Occur After Mommy Makeover Surgery?
Depending on the procedures applied within the scope of maternity aesthetic surgery, swelling and bruising may occur in the early post-operative period. However, this is temporary. Swelling and bruising in the application area will heal by itself as the body experiences a healthy healing process. How long the swelling and bruising will last may vary depending on the scope of the surgery, the skin structure of the person, and many other similar factors.
Is Dressing Needed After Mommy Makeover?
Whether or not dressing is needed after maternity aesthetic surgery may vary depending on the procedures applied and the scope of the procedures for each patient. After the maternity aesthetic surgery, the incisions made during the surgery are covered using special tapes, usually called sterile strips. These strips can stay on the incision sites for an average of 3 weeks, and the patient can shower during this time. In patients who do not have any problems in the healing process, there is usually no need for an additional dressing, but since the recovery process of each patient is different, the doctor’s specific assessment of the patient comes into play at this point.
Are Scars Appearing After Mommy Makeover Permanent?
As is the case with every surgical procedure, the scars occurring during maternity aesthetic operations are permanent. However, these scars lose their prominence in the early post-operative period over time. For this, the important thing is that the patient should have a healthy recovery process. In this case, the scars lose their prominence over time and become indistinct. However, personal characteristics such as the skin structure of the patient are also effective factors at the point of losing the prominence of the scars. In addition, care should be taken to ensure that the scars do not come into direct contact with the sun’s rays during the healing period.
Why is a Corset Used After Mommy Makeover?
Depending on the procedure applied within the scope of Mommy Makeover, it may be necessary to wear a corset after the surgery. Generally, corset use comes to the fore after tummy tuck surgery, BBL aesthetics, and liposuction applications. The corset wraps the area with external pressure without causing any discomfort to the person. Thus, it is possible to prevent swelling, vascular problems, and edema in the area. In addition, the incision area is protected against possible external factors, and the healing process is accelerated. The benefit of the corset is undeniable at the point of adapting to the new shape of the region after the operation.
When to Do Sports After Mommy Makeover?
The time to do sports after maternity aesthetic surgery may vary depending on both the procedures performed within the scope of the surgery and the recovery speed of the patient, which can vary by person. However, it is generally not recommended to exercise for at least 6 weeks after Mommy Makeover. Lifting weights, running, and making quick and sudden movements can cause strain on wounds and stitches. They can also lead to increased pain. Especially after tummy tuck surgery, a doctor’s approval must be obtained before starting exercises for the abdominal region.
Is Lymphatic Massage Recommended After Mommy Makeover?
Lymphatic massage is applied to reduce swelling under the skin and is generally recommended by doctors after Mommy Makeover. Swelling is a natural response of the body to heal the area after surgery. Hardening and bruising can occur when the accumulation of fluid due to immune cells in the area is not controlled. With lymphatic massage, fluid can be moved and excess toxins can be returned to the lymph system. Thus, pain and swelling can be reduced and the healing process can be accelerated. However, a doctor’s approval must be obtained for a lymphatic massage after Mommy Makeover.
What are the Advantages of Mommy Makeover?
Within the scope of maternity aesthetic surgeries, it is possible to perform many different interventions that the patient needs in a combined way. Deformities that occur in different parts of the body after delivery and breastfeeding can be removed by maternity plastic surgery. This makes the person feel better and increases their self-confidence. Since the surgeries can be combined, it is possible to perform all the necessary procedures within the scope of a single surgical operation. Thus, the patient is administered anesthesia only once, the healing process is shortened and all results can be achieved simultaneously.
