Mummy Makeovers – Post Preganncy Procedures
Have you been neglecting yourself because you are too busy with the kids. You deserve to treat yourself with something special.
What are the common procedures that women have after pregnancy?
After pregnancy women can be left with pigmentation on their face, saggy breasts and stretch marks and loose skin on their tummy. Treatments such as BBL laser for pigmentation, liposuction with laser skin tightening, tummy tuck, breast augmentation and breast lift are common treatments sought by women after pregnancy.
When is the best time after pregnancy to have these treatments?
BBL laser for pigmentation can be done within a few weeks after the pregnancy once all the hormones settle down.
Antiwrinkle injections and dermal fillers can be done after breast feeding.
Liposuction with laser skin tightening and breast augmentation/breast lift can be done 6 months after the pregnancy.
Tummy tucks are best done after you have had all your children, however it doesnt mean that you can’t have children if you have a tummy tuck if you change your mind.
Are these procedures painful and can i look after my baby after the procedure?
Non ablative lasers, anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are associated with little to no downtime and you can return to caring for your child immediately.
Surgical procedures will vary with their downtime. Liposuction with laser skin tightening will have less downtime than a tummy tuck. It is best to discuss the downtime with your doctor over a thorough consultation.
