Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover

Bringing a child into this world is one of the most wonderful phases of a woman's life. At the same time, this involves a lot of body changes - physiologically, physically, chemically, and emotionally.
Mommy makeover refers to one or a combination of procedures that are done to alter the appearance after delivery, especially relating to one or more of the following:

  1. Tummy that is sagging (no fat, just loose skin) with stretch marks
  2. Breasts that are altered in size and shape, sometimes the enlargement could be completely disproportionate with the body and cause back pain
  3. Undefined thick waistline with irregular fat accumulation
  4. Fat deposits on the abdomen, thighs, hips, and trunk that do not reduce with dietary changes and exercise
  5. Skin changes on the face and around the eyes, giving an aged appearance
  6. Post cesarean, there is excessive skin around the surgical scar

Pros:

  1. Reduces tummy size
  2. Gives a more youthful appearance
  3. Alters breasts to the desired shape and size

Cons:

  1. Weight loss, if happens, could affect the results
  2. Subsequent pregnancies don't have any complications with tummy tuck but with another pregnancy the effects may be lessened or reversed.
  3. Since surgery is involved, the risk of unforeseen complications always exists (for instance, in breast implants, there is capsule formation or capsulitis, in rare cases rupture may require removal.)

Mommy makeover is not a single step procedure, but a combination of plastic surgical procedures that are done depending on the problem you present with.

  • Tummy tuck - If there is abdominal sagging, the tummy is tucked back into position by removing the fat and excessive skin and reworking on the belly button.
  • Liposuction - Excessive fat deposits in the hips, thighs, trunk area can be removed by sucking out the fat deposits. Most commonly done in the hips and trunk area.
  • Breast lift - Sagging uneven breasts, drooping nipples, reduced volume are all indications for a breast lift. During the surgery, the breast tissue is repositioned to reproduce a better shape and size and reposition the nipples if required.
  • Breast reduction - Large breasts are a common problem, and breast reduction is one of the most requested for procedures.
  • Breast augmentation - Either saline implants or silicone are used to restore breast size and shape to the desired results. Usually, breast lift is combined with breast augmentation.
  • Facial corrections - From dark circles to sagging skin to wrinkles, facial appearance can be changed based on the presenting symptoms.

These are very brief descriptions of the various procedures that are done as part of mummy makeover. A detailed consultation with your plastic surgeon regarding costs, subsequent pregnancies, aftercare, recovery, healing, and limitations and risks is to be had ahead of the surgery.

Smile Designing - 6 Techniques to Give You That Perfect Smile

Smile designing or smile makeover is the cosmetic process of improving the appearance of one’s smile. Since smile is the most commonly used way to communicate non-verbally, it is of utmost importance to have a winning smile that exudes confidence; this cosmetic procedure helps give you just that. Many people don’t have good smile, they might be too conscious about their teeth or worry about the fine lines on their faces. Smile designing helps one to alter their as per what they desire.

Techniques used by a cosmetic dentist to enhance or correct their patient’s smile:

1. Whitening: This procedure is used for people who have yellow or discolored teeth. The cosmetic dentist makes a chemical mixture containing peroxide and then the concoction is applied on the teeth for the discoloration to fade away. 2 to 3 sittings can give you satisfactory results.

2. Bonding: This procedure is performed on people who want to fix teeth that are broken or chipped. The dentist usually applies an acrylic material on the tooth that can be shaped and contoured to fit perfectly on the chipped tooth.

3. Enamel shaping: The dentist removes very little amount of enamel (tooth’s outer layer) to re-shape the tooth, if excess enamel makes the smile look uneven and odd.

4. Crowns and bridgework: This procedure replaces any missing tooth. Prosthetic tooth or teeth are made to help match your real teeth so that it doesn’t look superficial or out of place.

5. Gum contouring: You might also have uneven gums, which don’t complement your face and teeth. In such a case, gum contouring shapes your gums to help you achieve that perfect smile.

6. Veneers: The frontal portion of the teeth is fixed by applying a thin layer of porcelain like material on it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Mommy Makeover - Dermatological Treatments That Can Really Help!

Mommy Makeover - Dermatological Treatments That Can Really Help!

Becoming a mommy takes a toll on a woman’s body. The skin on your abdomen stretches and post-delivery can sag from a number of places. Your breasts may also start sagging. Just because you’ve become a mother is no reason to compromise on your appearance. All you need is a mommy makeover. This refers to a surgery or group of cosmetic procedures that can make you look and feel as you did before a child came into your family. Typically this includes a tummy tuck, breast augmentation or a breast lift and liposuction. You may also choose to have cosmetic surgery on your face to make you look younger.

  • Tummy Tuck: A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty involves removing excess fat and skin from the abdominal area. The remaining skin is then pulled taut and stitched close to flatten the abdomen. The abdominal muscles can also become tighter as a result of this procedure. A tummy tuck is advisable only for those women who do not plan on having any more children. Some studies also show that an abdominoplasty can help a new mother lose pregnancy weight faster.
  • Breast ReconstructionWhen it comes to restructuring your breasts you could choose to have a breast lift, put implants in or both. If the position and shape of the nipples is fine, implants may be the best idea. These add volume with minimal scarring. However, if the position of the nipples has shifted and they need to be moved, a breast lift may be more effective. You can breastfeed after either procedure but it is best to consult your doctor before undergoing this procedure, if you are still breastfeeding. Some women may also feel as though their breasts have become heavier post pregnancy. In such cases, a mommy makeover can include breast reduction.
  • Liposuction: Some women may also choose to address their abdominal weight only with liposuction. This is a noninvasive procedure that removes fat deposits from under the skin and recontours the body. As compared to a tummy tuck, this treatment has less recovery time and also costs less. However, it may not be an effective solution.
  • Facial Cosmetic SurgeryThe surge of hormones during pregnancy can also cause pigmentation issues and leave dark spots on your face. Chemical peels are usually the best way to treat these issues. Lasers are avoidable as it could worsen melisma. If signs of aging such as crow’s feet and fine lines are becoming prominent, you could also undergo cosmetic surgery to hide them. There are also many alternative medicines or natural remedies to treat pigmentation and dark spots on your face. You can try them before opting for a facial cosmetic surgery.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
