This is not customary to speak out loud: all the thoughts and feelings of a woman during pregnancy are aimed at waiting for a miracle, and the changes that occur in the body and appearance of the future mother are considered as natural. Weight gain, swelling, age spots and stretch marks add to the hidden feelings of women, but as a rule, all the thoughts of moms are busy preparing for the upcoming birth and meeting with the baby, so many reassure themselves that after birth the figure will definitely take on the old forms. Is it really? In most cases, if pregnancy and childbirth were uneventful, then the body will return to normal during the first half of the year. But if, after all, your new status does not affect your appearance for the better, you may need to consult a specialist doctor.
After giving birth, some of the newly baked moms are disappointed the stomach does not disappear, stretch marks appear, and the breast loses its former elasticity and beauty. In such a situation, regular workouts can help. But, firstly, not everyone will have time and energy on them, and, secondly, sport does not always give the expected effect. In this case, it is safer to turn to plastic surgeons. They are ready to eliminate the defects of the figure after childbirth. This is the kind of mommy makeover that you need to have now.
In this article we will talk about the most common problems of young mothers, which plastic surgery solves, how the operations are performed, what are the contraindications and the recovery period?
It is important to remember that there is a general rule: all plastic surgery is recommended not earlier than 3-6 months after childbirth and if a woman is breastfeeding, then after the completion of lactation.
Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
It is safe to say that few women manage to maintain a perfect belly after childbirth. From 16-18 weeks of pregnancy, the abdominal circumference increases by an average of 1 cm every week. Therefore, there is nothing surprising in the fact that later the skin is difficult to “recover.” In many ways, the recovery process depends on the individual characteristics, as well as on heredity and age. Some in a few months from a large belly may not remain a trace. But what to do if half a year has passed, a year and a half, the excess weight has gone and the stomach has remained? In this case, you can either accept or register for abdominoplasty – an operation that is designed to restore the beautiful contour of the abdomen and the correct proportions of the anterior abdominal wall.
- omission of the anterior abdominal wall, the formation of a skin and fat apron;
- an excessive amount of skin and subcutaneous fat in the anterior abdominal wall;
- the presence of postoperative scars in the lower abdomen.
Contraindications:Cardiac and pulmonary insufficiency, diabetes mellitus, severe obesity, the presence of postoperative scars above the navel level, the next pregnancy planned for the coming year.
