Post-Pregnancy Mummy Make Over
Nothing is more beautiful than the miracle of life. Giving birth is an experience like no other, and while most women would say the birth of their child is the best day of their lives, there’s no denying that pregnancy and giving birth certainly take their toll on your body. As your baby grows, you put on weight and your skin stretches around your tummy, which can often leave women with excess skin and fat, and unsightly stretch marks once their baby is born. Not only that, but the breasts change throughout pregnancy. They grow in size as the body prepares itself to breastfeed, after which your breasts can appear more deflated and saggy than they once were. A lot of women can often feel very self-conscious and depressed post-pregnancy due to the changes they’re facing when it comes to their new mummy body. With hard work and dedication to a healthy diet and exercise regime, some women will find that they can address their concerns themselves, but it is a lot easier said than done. That’s why we offer the Post-Pregnancy Mummy Makeover here at The Pabari Clinic. If anything, you should indulge in some much-needed TLC because after all, you have just given birth and you deserve to look and feel your best!
The procedure itself is a combination of three of our most popular cosmetic procedures: a breast uplift, liposuction, and abdominoplasty. In some cases, you might not need all 3 procedures, which is why every treatment plan at The Pabari Clinic is specifically designed around you. Under general anaesthetic, incisions are made in order to remove excess fat and skin, reposition the remaining skin and muscles before stitching everything together.
How long does the procedure last?
This is a very complex procedure with multiple stages, and so you should prepare yourself for a rather long surgery. This time can vary depending on your unique treatment plan.
How long until I see results?
The physical changes made to your body are immediate, although you will need to allow time for healing and recovery before you see the best results. This is likely to take up to 6 months.
How long do the results last?
The results are essentially permanent so long as you follow a strict aftercare regime and maintain your ideal weight through a healthy lifestyle. Physical changes over time can have an affect on your results.
What are the associated side effects?
It goes without saying that you are going to experience initial swelling, bruising and discomfort during the healing process, although this should only last a couple of weeks.
Are there any risks involved?
Most surgical procedures of this nature carry the risk of excess bleeding and blood clotting, as well as allergic reaction and infection, although this is unlikely. Each individual procedure also carries their own risks, which are very rare, including unsightly thick scarring, bleeding beneath the skin, fluid build-up, internal damage, haematoma, bulging or bumpy skin etc. Again, you can find more information on the risks of each procedure by visiting their web pages. There is no guarantee with cosmetic procedures like this that you will be fully satisfied with the results, although this should not be a concern providing you express your needs and expectations fully to Mr Amit Pabari during your consultation. He is a highly trained and experience surgeon, using only the most advanced techniques in order to offer the results you desire.
What does the downtime involve?
It is highly likely that you’ll stay in hospital for a number of nights so that we can keep an eye on your initial progress before discharging you to continue your rest and recovery at home. Any wounds will be appropriately dressed, and you will need to take at least a week or two off work. After this time, any stitches will be removed. You will need to follow our aftercare advice carefully in order to allow for proper healing and optimum results. More details can be found on each treatment page. Avoid strenuous exercise for at least 6 weeks and manage any pain with prescribed pain relief.
Who is suitable for a Post-Pregnancy Mummy Makeover?
This combined procedure is suitable for new mothers with any of the above symptoms who are looking to restore their body to its former youthful glory after giving birth, making for a brand new yummy mummy look! If you are breastfeeding, this will need to come to an end before your procedure as there is a chance that you will no longer be able to breastfeed after your breast uplift. This is something to bare in mind if you are planning on having more children in the future.
How much does Post-Pregnancy Mummy Makeover?
The cost of your procedure will depend on your bespoke treatment plan, including which procedures you need, and the extent of each one.
