Motherhood ushers ina new dawn in the lives of women. Their world starts revolving around their little bundles of joy. Yet, once the initial euphoria settles and they look back, they miss theiryouthful past. Pregnancy is an overwhelming physical and emotional journey. The beautiful experience of giving birth does take its toll on the young women and leaves behind stretched muscles, loose sagging skin, stretch marks, and deflated breasts.  Most women would then dress down to comfortable clothes to hide their baby weight. But the new age woman seeks more. She wants to wear gym clothes, run marathons and swim in oceans overseas and rock in little black dresses.

 

 

Dr. Shraddha Deshpande, Cosmetic Surgeon, Wockhardt Hospital Mumbai Central talks more about the ‘Mommy Makeover' phenomenon.Of late there has been a great upsurge in the number of women opting for a ’Mommy Makeover'. The goal of a Mommy Makeover is to restore the shape and appearance of a woman's body after childbearing. There are many areas of the body that can be addressed, most commonly the breasts, abdomen, waist, genitalia, and buttocks.

 

 

The surgeries commonly included in this group contain:

 

 

1. Abdominoplasty or Tummy tuck

2. Breast Augmentation or Breast Lift

3. Liposuction

4. Vaginal rejuvenation

5. Buttock Augmentation

 

 

The patient may opt for a combination of these procedures, which are either performed in the same or multiple sittings. However, a lot of concerns have been raised of late about the safety of these procedures. The risk is real. Any surgery lasting for more than 6 hours increases the risk of anesthetic complications. The risks include bleeding, infection, wound healing issues, thrombophlebitis or at times pulmonary embolism.

 

 

Selection of the right candidate is mandatory. Not all patients are suitable for undergoing this surgery. The BMI should be less than 30, the patient should be a non-smoker and must undergo proper pre-anesthetic assessment. Also, the patient must have completed her family and must be in a sound mental and physical condition to undergo this surgery. A woman's body undergoes a lot of physiological changes after pregnancy and childbirth. It is recommended to wait for at least 2 years after childbirth before considering this surgery.

 

 

The practice of Medicine and Surgery is not an exact science. Although good results are expected, there is no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary. One needs to have realistic expectations while undergoing such procedures. Communication and patience is the key to achieving good results. It is imperative to select a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon and an accredited facility to ensure complete safety while undergoing this surgery.
