The mommy makeover or mummy makeover is a popular cosmetic surgery option in Turkey.
Read our guide to Mommy Makeover.
The mommy makeover was originally a range of cosmetic surgery operations developed by American cosmetic surgeons.
This concept of multiple operations was very popular with American stars who had become mothers and who, for image reasons, needed to quickly return to their pre-pregnancy body.
Depending on each case, i.e. the after-effects of childbirth that a woman is facing, the surgeon will propose a suitable post-pregnancy cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.
The operations included in post-natal reconstructive surgery may concern the breasts, the body and intimacy.
What is included in a mommy makeover will therefore vary from one woman to another.
For each body part listed, here are the operations you could have as part of this combined cosmetic surgery.
Labioplasty or labiaplasty
After pregnancy, particularly with breast-feeding, the breasts can become hollowed out and lose volume. Implants, with or without a facelift, or sometimes breast lipofilling, may be indicated to restore volume and firmness to the breasts.
A breast lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to lift sagging breasts and give them a higher, more symmetrical appearance. A breast lift lifts the breasts by removing excess skin, reshaping the breast and reshaping the surrounding tissues.
When, as a result of pregnancy, the breasts are both drooping and have lost volume, the surgeon advises the mamman patient to undergo a breast pexy or mastopexy with prostheses. Conversely, if the patient suffers from breast ptosis but her breasts are too large, then the mommy makeover may include breast reduction surgery.
Cosmetic surgery of the abdomen after pregnancy may involve tummy tuck(abdominoplasy), liposuction or a body lift. You can read more about each of these operations here: tummy tuck, liposuction, body lift.
To sum up the advantages of these operations on a tummy damaged by childbirth, the aim is to treat excess skin and excess fat, which are unfortunately often associated.
Surgery to repair the tummy after childbirth will first seek to restore its firmness. This is achieved by abdominoplasty, which removes excess skin and, if present, corrects the abdominal apron. When the entire abdominal belt has been marked by childbirth, the patient has fat and the buttocks area also needs to be treated, the surgeon may propose a body lift.
Post-delivery liposuction completes tummy tuck surgery after pregnancy. Liposuction of the abdomen following pregnancy is rarely performed alone and on a single area. It is most often performed as a complement to abdominoplasty in areas above and below the navel, but also on the flanks, sometimes the pubis, the back and to correct saddlebags. To eliminate abdominal fat while resculpting the figure, our surgeons in Turkey are more likely to refer you to vaser liposuction, which smoothes the skin and produces even more convincing results on the anatomy.
A stomack or tummy surgery after pregnancy sometimes also includes consideration of the best way to firm the buttocks. Both the buttocks and the breasts can lose volume and sag.
The surgical options are a BBL and a facelift to correct sagging of the buttocks. The choice of BBL (buttock lipofilling) is made at the expense of implants because it relies on the use of the patient's own fat, which as part of her mommy makeover will certainly undergo liposuction.
During and after pregnancy, the genital area can undergo changes, increasing the length and thickness of the labia majora and/or minora. This is why a labiaplasty can restore the youthful, aesthetic appearance of a woman's intimate area. Find out more about this intimate surgery.
Generally speaking, the length of time it takes to recover after a mommy makeover depends on how quickly your body recovers and the number of operations performed. Recovery time will be dictated by the most important operation, usually an abdominoplasty, and will generally be around six weeks.
In the case of breast augmentation or a breast lift, you will be able to return to work after a few days, but it will be six weeks before you can do any heavy lifting or strenuous exercise. If you have also had liposuction after pregnancy, you will be able to return to work after a few days, without lifting or strenuous exercise for six weeks, while your body recovers.
Tummy tuck requires three to four weeks off work, as well as restrictions on lifting and exercise for a further six weeks. Therefore, if your post-partum body contouring surgery includes an abdominoplasty, you can expect to be off work and resting at home for 3 to 4 weeks.
The recommendations to be followed post-operatively for a reconstructive surgery procedure after pregnancy are given by the cosmetic surgeon. It is important to follow them for the best results.
The final result of a mommy makeover is visible after 3 to 6 months.
The cost of the entire mommy makeover procedure depends on the operations required, the medical fees and the charges applied in the hospital where the plastic surgeon will operate. We prefer to offer you an all-inclusive price that already includes the surgeon's fees as well as the cost of your stay at our clinic in Istanbul.
In this way, you benefit from the skills of our best surgeons and the best plastic and reconstructive surgery clinic in Turkey at the best price.
On average, depending on the number of operations included in your mommy makeover, the final cost in Istanbul Turkey is 50 to 70% cheaper than the price of a mummy makeover in U.K, Canada or U.A.E. As a reminder, the price of a post-natal package in England starts at £9,100.
