What Is A Post-Pregnancy Makeover?
Generally speaking, a Makeover is any version of a tummy tuck combined with a breast procedure, Implants only, lift and implants or lifts alone. Tailored to what the patient desires.
Combination procedure involving:
- Breast Lift
- Breast Augmentation
- 360 Tummy Tuck
- 360 Liposuction
What is a Breast Lift?
The breast lift, also known as 'the mastopexy' is a surgical procedure to raise the breasts and remove sagginess or drooping.
This is done by removing excess skin to tighten the surrounding tissue and support a better contour. It's common for the internal tissue to be reshaped as well. This is usually combined with breast implants to re create the fullness of the breasts.
What is a 360 Tummy Tuck?
Think of it like a combination of a reverse tummy tuck, a FDL and a belt Lipectomy.
The more severe the loose skin, the more aggressive you need to be.
1) Mini tummy tuck
2) Standard tummy tuck
3) Extended tummy tuck
4) 360 tummy tuck
5) FDL tummy tuck
6) Corset tummy tuck
7) Extended corset tummy tuck
8) Extended corset tummy tuck with bra strap resection
What is a Breast Augmentation?
Breast implants are inserted beneath the breasts to enlarge them, either under or above the pectoral muscle. The implant size differs per patient, as it depends on individual circumstances such as:
- What size breasts you want
- Breast anatomy, elasticity and thickness
- Body type
Specialist Plastic Surgeon Dr Pouria Moradi uses Motiva Silicone Gel-filled Breast implants. The gel-filling provides a more natural feeling and aesthetics.
What is 360 Liposuction?
Liposuction can be used to treat most areas of the body, either as an isolated procedure or combined with other body contouring procedures. The best candidates for liposuction are normal-weight people who have firm, elastic skin with an abnormal distribution of fat in specific areas such as the hips, thighs, or neck.
Liposuction is a major surgical procedure often taking many hours to perform. It is not a weight loss technique, nor does it reduce stretchmarks; rather it is a tool to target areas that are resistant to exercise.
How much does a Post-Pregnancy Makeover cost?
Costs associated with a mommy makeover vary on a number of factors, however this will be discussed during your consultation:
- Anaesthetist's fees
- Private hospital or day surgical facility fees
- Your level of private insurance cover
- Need for other facial plastic surgical procedures, such as eyelid rejuvenation, facelift, neck lift or brow lift.
- Surgical assistant's fee
The breast lift and implant component of the procedure aren't covered. Any time an implant is inserted it is deemed cosmetic, so Medicare and therefore health funds won't cover any costs. However, 360 tummy tuck usually is covered. As long as the skin excess threatens the integrity of the skin and the patient has lost weight and is stable. Liposuction isn't covered either. As a patient, you will need to pay for the cosmetic component of the operation.
Post-Pregnancy Makeover Results
In most cases, it will be a two to five night stay in hospital and around three to four weeks off work.
It takes a good 12-18months to get a "white" scar. Scars start off red, due to the red blood cells which start the healing process. Over time they go "purple" (similar to this scar at 2 months) due to the excess collagen fibres which are haphazardly arranged. Then they go "blue". It is during this phase scar management is so important to help realign and reduce the collagen fibres. Be patient and trust the process.
