Motherhood is possibly one of the most important experiences in a woman’s life. After all, it is what we are here for… to prolong the human race.
At the same time childbirth is a huge ordeal, and so is looking after an infant (and dare I say it looking after the infant’s father too). Pregnancy, childbirth and caring for the family all leave their mark on a mother’s body.
Post baby body concerns include saggy and droopy breasts and stretched abdominal muscles that just won’t pull back to where they used to be. That’s before we start on the leg veins! Often weight is difficult to lose – especially after the second or third child, and diet and exercise don’t seem to work.
Do we need to regain our previously gorgeous body? Of course not! Do we want to? Well that’s a different question altogether. It’s a matter of choice and budget.
I remember when my kids were tiny and our lives were jam packed full of nappy changes, mealtimes, nursery runs and snotty noses, the last thing on my mind was doing anything for myself. A few years down the track I was screaming “bring on the mummy make-over!
This is a common story from our clients. A Mummy Makeover (http://www.ozskin.com/
There are however a number of non-surgical treatments that can also include skin rejuvenation, body contouring, cellulite treatment, stretch mark reduction or skin tightening.
A full or partial tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty or mini-tuck is a surgical procedure used to flatten the abdominal wall or stomach area. Large amount of skin and fat are removed from the middle and lower part of the abdomen. It removes excessive hanging skin and repairs loose or stretched muscle, thereby, improving abdominal wall tone and structure. Skin that contains stretch marks on the lower abdomen may be removed as well.
Breast lift or mastopexy is used to reshape and lift sagging breasts (ptosis) and give them a better shape, resulting in a firmer and more uplifted appearance. It provides better shape and lifting of hanging breasts, repositioning of areola, reduction in the size of the areola, if it is too large and correction of asymmetries between both breasts.
Breast reduction reduces the size of breasts by surgically removing skin, fat and breast tissue. In some cases, the nipple is repositioned. The breast is reshaped for a smaller more pleasing contour.
Face lift firms and tightens the skin of the face and neck. Most effectively treats problem areas present in the lower facial regions such as the jowls and neck.
A face lift removes lines around your eyes, forehead wrinkles, loose skin around the neck, folds and jowls in the cheek area, and the lines around your nose and mouth (nasolabial folds). It helps improve the youthful appearance. It rejuvenates the face by removing excess fat, tightening muscles and redraping skin.
Every woman’s body responds differently to pregnancy and child birth, there is no hard and fast rule about a mummy-makeover. It’s always a tailored approach for the individual.
