If you are in trouble with the weight gained during pregnancy and the deformations that occur in the body after birth, experts recommend mommy makeover for a miracle return before birth. Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Specialist Vasfi Çelik gave important information about mommy makeover.
What is mommy makeover?
Stating that after birth, some deformations occur in the body such as cracks in the abdomen, sagging and volume losses in the breast, sagging of the skin, and regional lubrication Dr. Vasfi Çelik said, “Mommy makeover is the whole of the aesthetics made for the elimination of all these deformations in the body after birth. This application provides an important opportunity for the person to regain their pre-motherhood body. This aims to reach the target in a short time by applying several surgical procedures at once.”
Which techniques are used in mommy makeover?
Pointing out that several surgical procedures are performed in mommy makeover, Çelik said, “During this operation, procedures such as liposuction, breast aesthetics and tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) are generally applied.”
- Liposuction: Emphasizing that liposuction is a surgery that removes fat from the body by absorbing fat deposits in certain parts of the body with a special vacuum or special injectors, Opr. Dr. Vasfi Çelik said, “Liposuction is definitely not a weight loss surgery, it is a body contour correction surgery. Liposuction, which is applied before the tummy tuck surgery in the maternity aesthetic operation, aims to have smooth body lines by creating a more fit image.
- Abdominoplasty (Tummy tuck): Regarding the tummy tuck Vasfi Çelik said, “It is a surgical procedure in which excess fat and sagging skin tissue in the middle and lower abdomen are removed and the abdominal muscles are strengthened by stretching. During this procedure, excess skin or cracked parts of the abdomen are removed. The deformation in the abdominal muscles due to childbirth is corrected.”
- Breast Lifting and Augmentation: Pointing out that breast lift and augmentation techniques have an important place in mommy makeover, Çelik said, “Because breasts that grow and swell during postpartum breastfeeding begin to lose volume and sag after breastfeeding. Silicone prostheses are the most valid method today to make both breasts equal or increase their volume. The procedure is performed with a combination of placing silicone prostheses into the breast and removing some skin and soft tissue procedures.
When should mommy makeover be done?
One of the important questions that arise in the minds is how long after the birth the mommy makeover will be done. Regarding the subject, Vasfi Çelik said, “We recommend this operation to be performed 6 months after birth. However, if the mother continues to breastfeed during this period, she is expected to wait until the baby is weaned and consult her doctor. On the other hand, the person who had this surgery can plan a pregnancy again 1 year after the operation.
