Pregnancy and childbirth are two life-changing events for a woman. They not only transform a woman’s mind but body too. But not all these transformations are nice.
They may come in the form of torn muscles and misshaped body parts.
To rectify these flaws and remove the discomfort arisen from pregnancy and childbirth, a procedure like mummy makeover is extremely useful.
According to specialists in mummy makeover Coffs Harbour by PCLS Coffs Harbour, a mummy makeover is a combination of complementary procedures that aim at restoring a woman’s body especially after pregnancy to a pre-childbirth body.
What does a Mummy Makeover Include?
A mummy makeover typically includes:
- Abdominoplasty to take out loosened skin from the tummy and either a
- Breast augmentation (done either with patient’s own fat or with implants) or
- Breast lift that addresses breasts that have sagged or deflated
Within just this combination, there are plenty of surgical options for a mummy makeover.
Today the concept of a mummy makeover has expanded to involve:
- Facial rejuvenation
- Vaginal rejuvenation
- Liposuction (which may also be performed to enhance the contours of other body parts like flanks or thighs)
- Treatment of varicose veins
Types of Mummy Makeover
There are five kinds of mummy makeover. These are as follows.
1. Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
Abdominoplasty is designed to remove the sagging skin that’s resulted from stretching during pregnancy. It may even eliminate some of the stretch marks.
Also if there is a split muscle resulted from pregnancy, it can be repaired with a tummy tuck.
Without rectifying the split in the rectus, merely the removal of skin will still leave a swelling in the tummy, giving a less than desired result.
Fat removal or liposuction is usually performed along with an abdominoplasty to get better results.
Liposuction may also be performed at other body parts such as thighs, flanks or back to complement the results of abdominoplasty.
3. Mastopexy (Breast Lift)
An effective breast lift treatment in Coffs Harbour by PCLS Coffs Harbour, for example, is performed to elevate the breasts which have sagged (because of enlargement during breast feeding) or deflated (because of volume loss).
Breast ptosis is a common issue particularly with moms who have larger breasts to start with or engorged breasts.
At times, the breasts have lost considerable volume. In that case, breast implants are used to make them fuller.
You may wonder if your own fat can be used to augment your breasts. Yes, it can be used. This can be achieved by performing a liposuction of the flanks and abdomen simultaneously.
Then the fat is reinjected into the breasts using special cannulas.
4. Facial Rejuvenation
Some women opt for rejuvenation for their faces during the same procedure.
During this, injectables like botox and fillers are used to restore the lost youthfulness of the face while volume loss occurred due to aging is addressed with fat grafting from the liposuction fat.
5. Vaginal Rejuvenation
During childbirth, the skin of labia may be stretched and turn excessively large or asymmetrical. This can cause discomfort and a sense of abnormality.
Vaginal rejuvenation is designed to restore the normal anatomy.
