Looking great after child birth
There are many options for you whether you would like me to work on your breast, perform a tummy tuck or a liposuction. I still would like you to be close to your ideal body weight and also suggest that you should have completed your family before undergoing any “mummy makeover.”
As a new mum, seeing your body changing and looking different after childbirth can be somewhat traumatic. Some women bounce back beautifully but they are the lucky few. I am here to make you feel like yourself again and most importantly to make you feel happy and comfortable with your body.
Through the mummy makeover you can choose to undergo as many or as few procedures as you want and these procedures available to you are customized to match your wishes and specific condition. I also want you to keep in mind that these procedures are not necessarily invasive surgeries: They can simply be cosmetic improvements, like skin rejuvenation using fillers or Botox.
→Sometimes it can be the smallest change that makes all the difference and simply a little Botox can make you feel top of the world
Breasts and post-pregnancy…
The loss of volume gained during pregnancy will cause the breasts to appear somewhat empty.
We can correct this easily with Breast Lift or Breast Augmentation procedures.
Breast augmentation is a great way for me to re-create lost volume via the insertion of a very natural looking implant. Breast augmentation is performed to increase the size and fullness of the breast.
Breast Lift will improve the droopiness as well as the position of the nipple.
Through breast lift surgery – I can tighten the skin, improve the shape and firmness of your breasts and restore their proper position on the chest.
Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that minimizes a woman’s breast size by removing fat, tissue, and excess skin. Breast reduction will reduce the extra breast mass and create mode elegant but also more comfortable breasts, giving your upper body more balance.
Liposuction and tummy-tuck
Another common surgery after childbirth is the tummy tuck. The tummy is the area of the body that undergoes the most transformation during pregnancy as it expands to allow more space for the growing womb.
Undergoing a C-section will usually impair the muscles of the abdominal wall. This means your tummy will battle to get tight again and bounce back to what it looked like before your pregnancy.
An abdominoplasty can be very effective in reducing the bulge caused by excess skin and fat, and loose abdominal muscles. The result is a flatter, firmer and shapelier abdomen.
Liposuction is a procedure that can be done to better contour diet resistant localized fatty deposits, but only provided the skin tone is good (no stretch marks) and the muscle tone is good.
During pregnancy your body stores fat and changes shape to accommodate the foetus and this shape can be hard to lose post childbirth.
The great thing about liposuction is that it can target many different areas such as: inner thighs, outer thighs, love handles, arms, buttocks and much more.
