“Mommy makeover, the surgery that recovers the body of the woman after pregnancies”.
After pregnancy in some women changes are generated at the level of the breast and abdomen in the form of empty chest and lack of muscle tone in the abdomen that are not corrected with diet or exercise. For these patients the mommy makeover has been designed. The mommy makeover is an Anglo-Saxon term that defines the remodeling of the chest and abdomen after pregnancy, by applying two surgical techniques at the same time. The momy makeover allows to restore or improve the shape of the chest and abdomen after the changes suffered after pregnancy: chest reconstruction (augmentation, elevation or reduction) and abdominoplasty (lipectomy and muscle plication). Sometimes, it is necessary to include in the same procedure the liposuction of the so-called "cartridge belts" and / or the genital aesthetic surgery.
WHEN SHOULD A MOMMY MAKEOVER BE PERFORMED?
The best time to perform the mommy makeover is from six months after the end of pregnancy and once the weight of the patient is at similar values to those prior to pregnancy.
The reasons are obvious: the woman has had time to balance her weight and recover some of the tone of the tissues. This determines to perform these surgeries in better conditions and with more predictable and lasting results.
WHAT WILL A MOMMY MAKEOVER BRING ME?
For many women, having a baby is the most wonderful experience of their life. However, in some cases, pregnancy determines changes in their physical appearance that can lead to self-esteem problems. Because a mother is both a woman, who wants to look attractive, it is very important that she has high self-esteem and that she feels good about her own image. The advantage of these combined surgery is to perform several procedures in the same surgical session, with only one admission to the hospital.
There are 2 types of momy-makeover: immediate and deferred. The "immediate" combines cosmetics and diet during pregnancy with a cesarean at the 8th month, in addition to breast surgery in the same surgical act. We do not recommend this momy early makeover since in the breast the rate of complications increases because the inflammation of the milk ducts, prepared for breastfeeding, adds risk of contamination of the implant. In the abdomen, an immediate surgery after pregnancy would give a partial result due to distension.
I recommend the "deferred" mommy makeover, which takes place from the 6th month after delivery. The woman has had time to balance her weight, recover part of the tone of the tissues and assume in better conditions and with more predictable and lasting results this integral aesthetic surgery.
