Every day, we see in the magazines and on social media the pictures of celebrities who show their dream bodies again, just some months after they were giving birth. There is an increased demand for a series of surgeries known as “mommy makeovers”. Postpartum plastic surgery is not cheap in this country. Much cheaper is the Mommy Makeover in Turkey.
What’s a mommy makeover?
Contrary to the opinion of the media, a Mommy Makeover can’t help women back to their dream body just a couple of weeks after giving birth. The attempt to do this would not be safe and would not be carried out by serious doctors. You must always bear in mind that pregnancy and childbirth create immeasurable pressure on the body. Immediate cosmetic surgery would simply be too dangerous. Serious plastic surgeons in Turkey wait for a period of at least six months after giving birth before performing invasive plastic surgery. Waiting this time lets your abdominal tissue heal completely before you get an abdominoplasty.
Getting into shape quickly after birth
There are various methods to do this. The celebrities you can see on various media work together with their personal trainers and food consultants during their pregnancies. A healthy diet and performing specific exercises help to prevent the extra weight from accumulating in the first place. A large part of the massive weight loss after giving birth is due to the loss of water, as there are less hormones in the body after giving birth. The Turkish specialists for Mommy Makeover suggest the same things. Some women see pregnancy as a chance to enjoy normally “forbidden” foods. However, this behavior aggravates the aesthetic problems that can arise during pregnancy. The more extra weight you build up, the more weight you have to lose after pregnancy. The additional weight also leads to a growth of the skin. After birth you will have more loose skin that requires surgical resection (by abdominoplasty). If you manage not to gain too much extra weight during pregnancy, a mini tummy tuck will often suffice for Mommy Makeover after birth. This procedure is advantageous, as it is associated with significantly reduced scars and a quicker recovery.
Most prominent women also know that breastfeeding consumes an enormous amount of calories. Breastfeeding can help you lose some of the extra weight you gained during pregnancy. It is also recommended to work closely with a certified coach when recovering from giving birth. You are taught how to return to regular exercise step-by-step without the risks of damages to the strained body.
Diet and exercise alone cannot do everything though. It is not uncommon that the body develops new deposits of fat reserves that can not be lost with conventional weight loss methods. A Mummy Makeover in Turkey can solve this problem.
Giving birth often leads to loose skin and damage to the abdominal muscles. While the abdominal cavity grows to accommodate the baby growing inside, the tissue on the lateral parts of the abdominal muscles can tear permanently. This leads to the fact that also very slim women show a belly approach. Due to the destroyed muscles, the organs and skin cannot be compressed effectively. This condition is not only visually unattractive. It also puts a permanent pain on the back.
Abdominoplasty in Turkey is the best way to solve the problem of abdominal muscles being damaged. No sporting activities are suitable to rebuild the musculature. The woman requires a surgeon to fix the torn tissue between the sections of the abdominal muscles.
Other problem areas after giving birth can occur on the breasts and vagina. After breastfeeding, some women lose breast volume. In many cases, the breasts hang limply downwards. The labia skin can also be stretched and torn during birth.
What’s the deal with a mommy makeover in Turkey?
At a Mommy Makeover in Turkey you will be personally advised by experienced specialists. Your needs will be specifically addressed. Not all women require all the procedures that are possible with a mommy makeover. For many women, only one or two procedures are necessary. The best way to find out the need and options is to see a plastic surgeon in Turkey. The following info can give you an idea of the individual procedures involved in a Mommy Makeover:
Breast lift and (optional) augmentation: Most women, especially women between 30 and 50, benefit from a breast lift after they were giving birth. That is due to the fact that the breasts grow bigger greatly during pregnancy and breastfeeding. It is quite often for a woman to go up by several cup sizes during pregnancy. Since the skin has to stretch, many women are left with smaller, flabbier breasts after giving birth. These can be corrected by surgical lifting. Some women may also notice after breastfeeding that their breasts have become smaller than before pregnancy. In these cases, a combination of lift and augmentation surgery is recommended.
A certain symptom of a breast lift after pregnancy is the alignment of the nipples. If they point downwards rather than forwards, it is almost obvious that you will need a breast lift. If the position and orientation of the nipples is normal, but the breasts are less full than before, you may just need to have your breasts enlarged. Inserting implants into the breast pocket can restore the volume that has been lost after breast feeding is finished.
Liposuction: Liposuction is recommended in some cases before a abdominoplasty is being performed. This removes fat deposits. For example, if large fat deposits have developed during pregnancy, you may need liposuction to get rid of them. This procedure can also be used to get rid of fat deposits in other areas of the body, not only in the abdomen. If, like some women during pregnancy, you have gained extra fat on your thighs or hips, a liposuction can remove this as well.
Tummy Tuck: During abdominoplasty, a plastic surgeon will make a long cut along your bikini line to pull down the skin and tighten the muscles. If an upper abdomen lift is also necessary, a second cut is made near the navel. In both cases, your extra skin is removed and all muscle damage caused by pregnancy is repaired. If you suffer from stress incontinence after birth, the surgeon can treat it with surgery. This helps regulating the flow of urine.
Labioplasty: Sometimes the labia minora of a woman dilates considerably during birth. This can lead to parts of the labia minora to go beyond the protective labia. This is not only unpleasant for most women, it is also often disturbing. Because the small labias are so sensitive, they can hurt with every movement you make. Fortunately, the specialists for Mommy Makeover in Turkey can use a labiaplasty to solve this issue. During labioplasty, a plastic surgeon removes carefully any excess skin from the labia minora. As soon as the healing process is complete, the labia are optimally protected by the large labia.
What You Should Know Before A Mommy Makeup
In addition to waiting six months after birth, you must ensure that you meet the following criteria for a Mommy Makeover.
You must be overall healthy. Because some procedures are complicated, it is extremely important for the healing process that you are in good health before you have a Mommy Makeover. You should also stop smoking at least two to three weeks before the operation. General diseases that sometimes occur after pregnancy, such as type 2 diabetes, can make any operation risky. Therefore, they should be treated before a Mommy Makeover. You should also speak with your doctor about how any medication you might take can affect your risks for surgery.
You must have a healthy weight. As mentioned at the beginning, a mummy makeover is not a procedure aimed for weight loss only. While some fat is removed with a Mommy Makeover, you must have lost the mass of pregnancy weight prior of planning an operation. This is necessary to achieve optimal results. The specialists recommend that you do not exceed your target weight by more than 12 to 13 kilograms before the operation.
You must budget accordingly. Since a Mommy Makeover involves a number of different procedures, it’s more expensive than many other cosmetic operations. In Germany you have to expect prices between EUR10.000 and EUR20.000 on average. It is much cheaper in Turkey. At the same time you can relax in Turkey after the interventions in peace and quiet from the strains of pregnancy. Combine the dream figure with a relaxing holiday!
Ideally, you should not have any more children after a Mommy Makeover. Although this is not a mandatory prerequisite for the operation, it is nevertheless recommended. Any subsequent pregnancy will re-stretch the skin of your abdomen and breasts and potentially tear your abdominal muscles. That would destroy the results of your operations. However, you can of course have further revisions carried out. The specialists will be happy to advise you.
