Mommy Makeover Aesthetics – Aesthetics After Pregnancy
After pregnancy and breastfeeding, loss of elasticity especially in the abdomen and breasts and stretch marks-birth marks might occur on the skin. A loss of volume and vitality occurs in the breasts, which might look like deflated balloon. Because of the separation of the muscles in the abdominal region, as a result of a false or true hernia can cause a more convex and loose appearance. This surgery might be more than one surgery which are breast lifting, abdominoplasty and liposuction depending on your body.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME FOR POSTPARTUM AESTHETICS?
While there is deformation in the body after birth, regeneration also starts simultaniously. For example, your hair starts to fall in the first 4 months after birth and new hair starts to grow. All these changes occur as a result of hormonal effects. Similarly, the same changes occur in the breast and abdomen. Immediately after birth, the abdominal region appears to be deformed and after 6 months it begins to recover slowly.
Therefore, the best timing for postpartum mommy makeover aesthetics should be 3-6 months after stopping breastfeeding. In this period, we should not neglect the diet in the breastfeeding rush, because in fact, we can gain the most weight in this period with the fear of giving milk. We must not forget that we absolutely do not need to consume more sugar and carbohydrates for milk. Adequate water consumption, supplementation of vitamins lost during pregnancy, and the mother’s peace of mind as possible, and regular sleep conditions are necessary.
HOW IS THE HEALING PROCESS AFTER MOMMY MAKEOVER?
When there is a little one waiting for you at home, one of the most frequently asked questions of my patients is “when can I get better and take my baby in my arms?”. Although it may vary from person to person, my advice to my patients; Especially in the first 2 weeks, you will not carry more than 10 kg in a way that will put a load on your waist. Of course, you can hug your baby but you should not pick them up and one of your relatives can support you about this. You can dress your baby and change the diaper, you can wash, but you should not lift them from the bathtub. You should use the corsets we recommend for about 4-6 weeks.
WHEN CAN I TAKE A SHOWER AFTER THE OPERATION?
It is possible to take a shower on the 3rd day after the operation. After taking a shower and relaxing, the swelling will heal much faster if you apply the creams we recommend regularly.
HOW LONG DOES THE PAIN LASTS AFTER SURGERY? IS IT NECESSARY TO BEND OVER?
Thanks to the advances in our surgical techniques, our patients now wake up from surgery almost painlessly. During the surgery, you can wake up painlessly by blocking the nerves with the local anesthetic injections which we inject before finishing the surgery and your pain will be taken under control with the simple painkillers we give after the operation. You will be able to have your meal and then our plastic surgery nurses will walk with you in our VIP floor. The more active you are, the faster your recovery will be.
We want you to walk in the puerperal position and avoid sudden movements for the first 3 days.
After taking your shower on the 3rd day, you can stand in a completely upright position and do your normal daily activities by yourself.
CAN I BE PREGNANT AGAIN AFTER MOMMY MAKEOVER SURGERY?
It is possible to get pregnant again after mommy makeover surgery but I generally recommend my patients to have surgery when you are not planning to have no more kids because a little deformation might develop in each pregnancy. Depending on the age of my patient, if excessive deformation has occurred and this situation effects her psychology, we can decide to undergo surgery at this age.
