Restore Your Pre-Baby Body with Mummy Makeover in Sydney or Wollongong
Having a child is a life-changing experience. Unfortunately, pregnancy and breast feeding can also cause unwanted changes to a woman’s body — such as stretching the breast and abdominal skin, weakening or damaging the abdominal muscles and sometimes even breast reduction. These changes usually cannot be reversed with diet or exercise efforts.
A mummy makeover with a plastic surgeon like Dr. Adrian Sjarif can repair all of the areas of your body that have changed after having a child or multiple children. In Sydney and Wollongong, patients trust Dr. Sjarif to restore or even improve upon their pre-baby bodies. You can be a terrific mum to your kids while looking and feeling great, too!
What Can Mummy Makeover Cosmetic Surgery Accomplish?
Every cosmetic surgery treatment plan is uniquely customized to the needs and goals of the patient. Generally, a mummy makeover can accomplish the following:
- Remove loose abdominal skin (tummy tuck)
- Repair separated or damaged abdominal muscles
- Eliminate pockets of fat from the abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, buttocks or other areas of the body
- Lift sagging breasts higher on the chest wall (breast lift)
- Add volume and shape to flat or deflated breasts (breast augmentation)
- Reduce oversized, heavy breasts (breast reduction)
- Reduce oversized or stretched-out labial tissues (labiaplasty)
Mummy Makeover Treatment Details
As with all plastic surgery, your treatment will be tailored to your specific areas of concern and your desired cosmetic outcomes. Your mummy makeover could include any of the following components:
The breasts can change significantly after pregnancy and nursing. Most often, the breasts lose their perky position and start to sag downward on the chest. Sometimes the breasts lose volume and look flat or shapeless. In other cases, the breasts increase considerably in size during pregnancy and do not get smaller, even after breastfeeding has stopped and breast asymmetry can also appear more pronounced. Breast surgery techniques such as those offered by Dr Sjarif can be the path to looking and feeling fabulous again.
Breast lift surgery can restore the shape of sagging breasts to their more youthful pre-pregnancy shape. If desired, breast implants can be placed during breast augmentation to increase the size of the breasts and add fullness to otherwise deflated breasts. Alternatively, breast reduction can resize large, heavy breasts. Breast asymmetry can be addressed at the same time as these procedures.
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
The abdomen is usually changed by pregnancy, as the skin stretches over the growing belly and often does not retract after delivery. The abdominal muscles can also stretch out, weaken or otherwise withstand damage during pregnancy. These problems are compounded by multiple pregnancies.
A Tummy tuck reverses all of these problems to create a flatter and firmer stomach and waistline. Excess loose skin is trimmed, the muscles are repaired and pockets of fat can be removed. The position and shape of the navel can also be adjusted as part of the the tummy tuck procedure, if needed.
Pregnancy and nursing can cause pockets of fat to accumulate not just on the abdomen, but also around the waist, hips, thighs, buttocks and elsewhere. Liposuction is designed to target and reduce these areas of fat for a slimmer, sexier body shape.
Childbirth can cause the outer “lips” of the vagina (called the labia) to elongate or stretch out. A type of plastic surgery known as Labiaplasty reduces oversized or pronounced labia for improved appearance, the ability to wear slim-fitting clothing, personal comfort and improved intimacy.
Your mummy makeover may involve combining several procedures into a single operation, or staging the procedures separately, allowing you to recover in between each one. Dr. Sjarif can advise which approach is better based on your treatment plan and lifestyle.
