Mommy Makeover- Now It's Time for You Mom!

Giving birth is a woman’s crowning experience of her life. A time of growth, transition, and profound beginnings - a woman’s body, soul and spirit are stretched during this phase.

Pregnancy-One of the most beautiful phases in a woman's life
Post-partum is a quest back to achieving the pre-baby body. Although the pregnancy journey is beautiful, it is also very stressful when the woman’s body is concerned.

Many women wish to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies and confidence which is a daunting task. Even after hours of slogging in the gym or crash dieting, the body refuses to come back to its original shape. Women are left to wonder “What to do to get back in shape?”

Mommy Makeover

The answer to that difficult question is “Mommy Makeover". The term coined in 2005, is a combination of plastic surgical procedures to fix the post-pregnancy changes. 

Mommy Makeover is a customized surgery to address the areas that concern the woman the most. It may include tummy, breasts, thighs, back, love handles, arms, face, etc.

Because the cost of plastic surgery in the Western countries is quite high, more and more women are opting for plastic surgery in India. India has surpassed all countries when it comes to medical tourism.

Here are few of the most frequently asked questions about a mommy makeover in India:

Mommy Makeover in India:

What physical changes occur in a woman’s body after pregnancy?

After pregnancy, a mother experiences the following changes:
  • The size of the breasts changes or you may experience sagging and/or nipple enlargement
  • Acne; skin patches near the nose, lips, and forehead; stretch marks on the stomach
  • Loose skin around the tummy or below the belly button
  • Loose abdominal muscles (Diastasis)
  • Labial changes and/or vaginal enlargement 

What procedures are included in your Mommy Makeover Package?

Mommy makeover is usually customized according to the requirements of the lady. The procedures may include one or a combination of:
  • Breast Augmentation/Breast Lift/Breast Reduction: Most mothers have a common concern of sagging breasts. Moreover, breastfeeding can lead to a loss of breast volume. In these cases, Breast Augmentation and/or Breast lift can help restore the breast shape. Also, hormonal changes and lactation can make the breasts heavy and saggy which can be glorified by Breast Reduction.
  • Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck): Loose abdominal skin and stretch marks around the tummy caused by stretching can be removed by Abdominoplasty or the Tummy Tuck. The bulge-like appearance of the tummy can be repaired by this procedure. Tummy Tuck gives a tighter, flatter stomach and restores the core muscle strength. There are many types of Tummy Tuck: Mini Tummy Tuck, Traditional Tummy Tuck, Tummy Tuck with Liposuction, Extended Tummy Tuck with Belt Lipectomy, and Reverse Tummy Tuck. The surgeon shall advise the best procedure for you after assessing your pictures and/or a physical examination.
  • Liposuction (Fat Removal): Post-pregnancy there will be excessive fat deposition around the tummy, thighs, limbs, etc. Liposuction is the procedure which helps in removing the excess fat. Combined with Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), this procedure provides much better results along with tightening the muscles.
  • Labiaplasty/Vaginoplasty: Labial appearance and laxity changes with the pregnancy. Labiaplasty tightens and restores the previous labial anatomy. As far as vaginal changes are concerned, childbirth causes vaginal mucosa stretching. Vaginoplasty tightens the vaginal lining.
  • Skin Tightening and Facial Rejuvenation: Skin loosening is a common concern after pregnancy. Procedures like Face Lift stimulates the collagen below the skin surface resulting in a more youthful face.
Who is the right candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Women who have completed child-bearing and want to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies for self-fulfillment are the ideal candidates for Mommy Makeover. It will be best to finish breastfeeding before undergoing the makeover.

 When is the right time to consider Mommy Makeover?

Generally, it is recommended to wait for six months after you have weaned off your child or stopped breastfeeding to undergo a mommy makeover. The reason for this waiting period is to allow the body to heal from the pregnancy and return to normal functioning.

What to expect in the initial consultation for Mommy Makeover?

An initial consultation usually involves a quick history taken by the surgeon along with all the medical conditions, if any. You would then be made to undergo a thorough physical examination in order for the surgeon to plan the procedures to be performed. The surgeon will discuss the best procedures suitable for you and the recovery period to achieve better results. In short, the initial counseling involves an entire surgical plan, the risks, the benefits, and the recovery process.

Is Mommy Makeover a single-stage procedure?

Mommy makeover can be done as a single staged procedure or in multiple stages at a gap of a few days. That depends on how extensive your procedures are. If you wish to undergo tummy tuck combined with a breast lift or breast implant, your mommy makeover can be done in a single stage. 

However, if it requires a complete lipo-abdominoplasty with breast reduction and liposuction of multiple areas, our surgeons prefer to break the procedures in two or three stages spaced a few days apart. The procedures are chosen in a way that the recovery is telescoped.

The surgeons and physicians worldwide agree that it is better to have anesthesia twice or thrice for a shorter duration at a gap of few days than single long anesthesia. The recovery is easy and smooth with shorter anesthesia.

Because the major benefit of a mommy makeover is that the multiple procedures are performed at once which allows you to see a major transformation in your body, we at IndiCure offer it in a way that it gives you the best results without compromising your health and well-being. We also understand the financials of it and that single visit is more economical for you.

What is the recovery period of Mommy Makeover?

The recovery period of this procedure depends on the procedures you have opted for. It takes usually two weeks before you can get back to your sedentary work and about six-eight weeks to start with your exercises and strenuous work.  

A stable diet should be maintained. Limit alcohol intake and stop smoking.

What are the complications and risks involved with Mommy Makeover?
As with any other surgery, mommy makeover too has its own share of risks. Some of them are:
  • Bleeding, swelling, bruising
  • Scars
  • Asymmetry
  • Wound complications and infection
  • Seroma
  • Complications of breast implants

However, if you have chosen a good and experienced surgeon, he will minimize the risks and makes sure there are minimal chances of any complications.
