A Plastic Surgeon’s Honest Answers to 9 FAQs about Mommy Makeover Surgeryadmin
A mommy makeover is a cosmetic surgery operation designed specifically for new moms. Because of the various changes that the body undergoes throughout pregnancy, the new mother frequently discovers that her body has radically altered from how it was before.
However, the story around pregnancy and motherhood makes new moms feel unsatisfied with their post-pregnancy bodies and guilty about their discomfort. This indicates that the negative feelings increase the mental toll produced by bodily dissatisfaction.
If a mommy makeover is on your mind right now or in the future, you probably have many questions. From agreeing on particular objectives to surgery and recovery plans, and everything in between, we’ve listed down the most crucial questions to ask yourself and your surgeon.
1. What is a mommy makeover surgery in India?
A Mommy Makeover is a technique that allows a woman to regain her pre-pregnancy physique. Women notice several improvements in their body form and look post-childbirth, notably in their breasts, belly, genitalia, and buttocks. A mommy makeover can address the body areas, which can be done as a single-stage surgery or in stages as requested by the patients or indicated by the cosmetic surgeon.
2. Is it worth undergoing mommy makeover surgery?
The chances of returning to a pre-pregnancy physique are boosted when the operation is performed by a board-certified surgeon in a well-equipped facility. Their method should provide natural-looking results that make you smile when you see yourself in the mirror. The primary goal is a rapid, scar-free transformation that boosts your mental wellbeing and delivers satisfaction.
3. Is there any scarring involved with Mommy Makeover?
Every procedure results in scars. Liposuction, for example, might leave microscopic wounds that heal without leaving a visible scar. On the other hand, a tummy tuck procedure leaves a large scar readily hidden beneath the underwear or bikini bottoms.
Dr Priya Bansal insists that the scars are carefully covered and as unobtrusive as possible by employing innovative procedures and cutting-edge technology. In a few months or years, the scars will fade away. She also offers non-surgical laser treatments to aid with scar fading.
4. What procedures are performed under mommy makeover surgery?
Restoring the post-pregnancy appearance is a highly specialised undertaking that demands accuracy and a clear understanding of the desired outcome. With today’s advanced cosmetic surgery technologies, you may get natural-looking results that are as near to your pre-pregnancy appearance as feasible.
The following procedures are included in the mommy makeover:
- Abdominoplasty, often known as a tummy tuck
- Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
- Breast Augmentation (Mammoplasty) /Breast Reduction (Mammaplasty)
- Buttock Lift
- Vaginal Rejuvenation
5. Is it advisable to go for a mommy makeover if I plan for another baby?
A mommy makeover has no bearing on your ability to conceive. Even if you obtain breast implants with your lift, a breast lift will not harm your ability to breastfeed.
Of course, any reputable plastic surgeon would insist on waiting six months after the birth of your kid before proceeding with the procedure to avoid any possible complications and give your body enough time to recover.
While a mommy makeover does not affect the likelihood of having another child, the results of the operations may be reversed during subsequent pregnancies. The vertical muscles of your abdomen are tightened during the tummy tuck. During pregnancy, you will need your abdominal vertical muscles for support, and they might re-separate if you have had a mommy makeover.
Getting a mommy makeover may not be the greatest decision if you are certain you want more children. Dr Priya Bansal personally recommends waiting until you complete your family before considering a mommy makeover procedure for long-lasting effects.
6. Can I hide my C-section scar with mommy makeover?
With proper communication and prior planning with your surgeon, hiding the loose scar tissue of your C-section scar may be possible. Your surgeon will plan your tummy tuck procedure so that the C section scar becomes incorporated in the tummy tuck scar and is hidden below the bikini line.
7. What is the recovery period of mommy makeover surgery?
The recovery duration following a mommy makeover treatment is determined by the procedures performed and the number of procedures performed as a single surgery. It also differs from one patient to the next. Women who get a complete mommy makeover may require at least two weeks of rest. Mild bruising, swelling and inflammation may occur, although this will diminish over the next few weeks.
It is advisable that you refrain from strenuous physical activity for at least 6 weeks or as directed by your surgeon. Two months after surgery, when the swelling has subsided to a significant degree, one may be able to appreciate the surgical outcomes.
8. What is the Mommy Makeover procedure cost?
The surgeon and the centre are the most crucial determinants for desired results. Many patients choose low-quality surgeries as a cost-cutting strategy. The results of these low-quality procedures sometimes look to be counterfeit and may even require corrective surgery. In procedures like liposuction, it’s important to use advanced tools like VASER, BodyTite and MicroAire to ensure minimal scars that disappear with time and natural-looking aesthetic results. The use of a 3D simulation tool before breast surgery also enables you to visualise the surgery outcome beforehand for maximum satisfaction.
A board-certified surgeon who has access to advanced surgical tools will prioritise your well-being and work towards giving you the desired result. Hence you must prioritise quality over the cost while finalising the surgeon and centre for your mommy makeover procedure.
9. Who is the right surgeon for a mommy makeover?
It is simple to state that the surgeon possesses the relevant abilities. However, hold plastic surgeons to a higher standard. After all, simply possessing the necessary abilities might lead to standard liposuction as a first step. And in today’s world, conventional liposuction is an excessively painful procedure.
When choosing a surgeon, it’s more important to ensure they have access to the newest MicroAire and VASER equipment and understand how to use it to get the greatest outcomes.
Furthermore, experienced surgeons can perform all of these operations painless and scar-free. The incisions they create are so small that they leave no visible scars.
