Motherhood is one of the most rewarding experiences a woman can have. Still, it comes with physical changes that are hardly reversible naturally.
Women choose Mommy Makeover surgery to regain their confidence and feel comfortable in their own skin once again. A combination of surgical procedures can help you restore your pre-baby body.
Many women all over the world come to Lithuania to have their plastic surgeries due to various reasons. This article explains why Lithuania is a hidden gem for Mommy Makeover surgery and will provide all travel- and procedure-related information so you can make a well-informed decision.
What is Mommy Makeover?
Mommy Makeover is a cosmetic surgery procedure that typically involves a combination of surgeries aimed at restoring a woman’s body to its pre-pregnancy appearance.
The procedures typically performed in a Mommy Makeover can include a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, and others.
It is designed individually to help women address the physical changes that have occurred after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.
What is included in Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover typically includes a combination of surgical procedures. The most popular are breast surgery and Tummy Tuck. Although, the exact procedures vary depending on the needs and goals of each woman.
Procedures that may be included in a Mommy Makeover transformation are:
- Tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty): This procedure removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and tightens the muscles to create a flat, toned abdomen.
- Breast augmentation: This procedure restores volume to the breasts and improves their shape.
- Breast lift: This procedure lifts sagging breasts and improves their shape.
- Liposuction: This procedure removes stubborn pockets of fat from the abdominal area, hips, thighs, and other areas.
- Labiaplasty: This procedure reduces the size of the labia minora, restoring a more youthful appearance to the genital area.
How soon are the results visible after Mommy Makeover?
The results of your surgery may take several months to become fully apparent. It is incredibly important to strictly follow your plastic surgeon’s instructions. Also, you should report any unusual symptoms or concerns during your recovery process.
Is Mommy Makeover surgery permanent?
Mommy Makeover surgery is permanent. Although weight changes, pregnancy and breastfeeding, smoking and alcohol consumption have a negative effect on skin elasticity. In order to maintain the result after the surgery, you need to take care of your diet and sustain a stable weight. It is beneficial to exercise and lead a healthy lifestyle post-operation.
Why Mommy Makeover?
Every woman’s motivation to have a Mommy Makeover is unique. The decision should be made after careful consideration and consultation with qualified surgeons like Rokas Bagdonas, Dainius Daunoravičius and Tomas Budrius. Some common reasons for plastic surgery include:
1. Mommy Makeover helps to restore their pre-baby bodies
Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can cause physical changes such as sagging breasts, excess skin and fat in the abdominal area, and stretch marks. A Mommy Makeover can help restore the body to its pre-baby appearance.
2. Mommy Makeover improves self-confidence
Physical changes after pregnancy can affect a woman’s self-esteem and confidence. A Mommy Makeover can help women feel more comfortable and confident in their own skin.
3. Mommy makeover can enhance the quality of life
Physical changes after pregnancy can make it difficult to wear certain types of clothing or participate in certain physical activities. A Mommy Makeover can help women improve their quality of life by allowing them to wear what they want and participate in the activities they enjoy.
4. Mommy makeover corrects physical post-pregnancy issues
Pregnancy and childbirth can cause physical issues such as separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti), urinary incontinence, and weakened vaginal muscles. A Mommy Makeover can address these issues and improve physical function.
When is the best time to choose a Mommy Makeover?
It’s recommended to wait until you’re finished having children and your body has stabilised after pregnancy and breastfeeding. This is because additional pregnancies can reverse the results of the surgery, so it’s important to be confident that you don’t plan to have any more children.
Additionally, it’s essential to wait until you’re at a stable weight and your body has recovered from pregnancy and childbirth before undergoing surgery. This will ensure the best possible outcome and a more natural-looking result.
