The female body is an amazing thing; it is built to accommodate and then give birth to babies. But this can come at a cost. The impacts of pregnancy, birth, and even breastfeeding can completely change a woman's body.
Reclaim your pre-baby silhouette with our Mummy Makeover procedure
Following pregnancy, many women find their body has changed dramatically. Breasts can be left enlarged or deflated, the body can suddenly start holding more fatty tissue than previously, and the abdomen is often stretched, leaving the appearance of “baggy” skin.
Our bodies are built to accommodate and give birth to babies, unfortunately the process of pregnancy and childbirth has a large impact on our bodies – breasts enlarging or deflating, the body holding more fatty tissue and a stretched abdomen.
Many women find that in spite of diet and exercise, they are unable to return to their pre-pregnancy body, leaving them feeling overwhelmed and like they have lost their youthfulness.
Pre-baby you don’t have to be just a memory!
We are able to help mothers from all walks of life to regain their pre-baby body through the use of several different surgical procedures, often referred to as a Mummy Makeover.
Generally, this will include procedures such as:
- Tummy tuck
- Breast augmentation* (to restore lost volume)
- Breast lift (to reduce sagging)
- Breast reduction
Tummy tucks are popular procedures among new mothers, as are breast augmentations (boob jobs) to restore volume loss, and breast lifts (mastopexy) to reduce sagging. It’s important to note however, that having breast augmentation can affect your ability to breastfeed in the future.*
At your Mummy Makeover consultation, Dr. Anh Nguyen will discuss your goals and provide you with a personalised plan based on your unique needs and circumstances.
*It should be noted that having a breast augmentation may affect your ability to breastfeed in the future. This should be taken into consideration if you are considering having more children.
FAQs - Mummy Makeover Perth
Dr Anh recommends your weight be stable for at least 6 months before undergoing a Mummy Makeover. If you are breast feeding, it's best to wait until at least 6 months after you stop breast feeding. It's also best to you ensure you are in the best emotional and physical condition possible prior to undergoing surgery of any variety.
If you've found your body isn't responding to healthy eating and exercise like it did prior to your pregnancy, a Mummy Makeover could be the answer you've been searching for. We use a combination of procedures to target your specific problem areas and help you to achieve your specific goals.
