Mommy Makeover

A Mommy Makeover is the ideal combination of different treatments that make the traces of pregnancy, birth and lactation disappear. The term Mommy Makeover refers to the trend coming from the USA to achieve a beautiful after baby body with the help of surgical interventions. For women who do not want to simply accept the possible physical consequences of motherhood, a mommy makeover can help to create a well-defined body with aesthetic proportions. It is understandable that women yearn for their body before birth after one or more births. You don’t just want to be a mother, you still want to be perceived as an attractive and confident woman.

What is Mommy Makeover?

The term “Mommy Makeover” refers to the trend coming from the USA to achieve a beautiful after baby body with the help of surgical interventions. First of all, it should be noted that changes in a woman’s body during pregnancy and afterwards are a natural process that no woman can avoid. Pregnancy leaves its mark. Post-exercise gymnastics and diets often do nothing to help. For women who do not want to simply accept the unsightly consequences of motherhood, a Mommy Makeover can help to create a well-defined body with aesthetic proportions. A Mommy Makeover consists of several individual interventions, which can also be combined. Of course, only one intervention can be carried out. These interventions have long been known in plastic surgery. The only new thing is the term that refers to surgery after pregnancy. Which interventions make sense for the patient and whether these can possibly be carried out in combination will be discussed individually at a personal consultation and tailored to the patient.

 

Common surgical and cosmetic procedures that are carried out in our practice after pregnancy are:

  • Face: laser (pigment spots), anti-aging (botulinum toxin, hyaluronic acid)
  • Neck: Ultherapy (firmer skin)
  • Cleavage: Ultherapy (firm skin, wrinkles), laser
  • Upper arms: liposuction
  • Breast: breast enlargement, breast lift, breast nipple reduction, areola reduction
  • Belly: tummy tuck, CoolCrush, scar correction (e.g. after a caesarean section)
  • Vagina: labia correction
  • Buttocks: Liposuction, Brazilian Butt Lift, CoolCrush, Cellfina
  • Thighs: Liposuction, CoolCrush, Cellfina, Laser (spider veins)

You decide which interventions you would like to make yourself. Of course, this can only be an intervention. It is important that the individual ideas are discussed in detail during a personal consultation.

What happens during a Mommy Makeover. 

Since every Mommy Makeover consists of an individual treatment combination, it is not possible to give a general answer here. Depending on the type of surgery you have chosen, it may or may not take place under general anesthesia. The inpatient stay, if necessary, also depends on the respective intervention. You can find more information on the procedures of the individual interventions under the respective services on our website or in a detailed consultation.

Questions that are very important to my patients.

Mommy Makeover General

What criteria should be met before I have surgery after pregnancy?

  • Since the female body still changes after breastfeeding, it is advisable to carry out surgery only six to twelve months after weaning. This is especially true for breast surgery, because only then the mammary glands have completely regenerated and the shape of the breast can be assessed.
  • You should have reached your desired weight and kept it for more than half a year. A few pounds up or down doesn’t really matter, but there should be less than 5 kg that you still want to lose.
  • At best, your family planning is already complete, since a new pregnancy will affect the result.
  • The requirements for each operation must be met and you should feel physically and mentally able to undergo the procedure.
  • You should make it clear in advance that you have family or friends who will support you and your children after the procedure.

How much time should I pass between childbirth and surgery?

Since the female body still changes after breastfeeding, it is advisable to carry out surgery only six to twelve months after weaning.

Does my child planning need to be completed before I undergo a Mommy Makeover?

Not necessarily. If a pregnancy is planned 1-2 years after a possible intervention, we usually advise you to have an intervention only after you have completed your desire to have children. Many patients are unsatisfied with the shape, size or symmetry of their breasts or the proportions of their bodies, and are not yet sure whether and when they want to get pregnant. In this case, advice is definitely useful to individually design a tailor-made concept.

Are the treatments for a Mommy Makeover fixed?

No, every Mommy Makeover is individual. In a detailed consultation, I will inform you about our treatment options and possible combinations of the different interventions. I have many years of experience and the ability to make the operations and treatment process as gentle, efficient and safe as possible for you. You will receive a treatment plan tailored to you and your wishes and all the information you need to decide which treatments you would like to carry out.

What are the costs for a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover either consists of a combination of different individual operations or just one treatment. The price is therefore based on effort and varies individually. For individual prices, please refer to the different treatment methods or it is advisable to clarify the treatment options in a detailed and non-binding consultation – in the course of this I will be happy to answer any questions regarding the costs.

What should I watch out for immediately after Mommy Makeover?

The further steps after the procedure also depend on your individual treatment combination. If this includes breast surgery, for example, a sports bra must be worn for six weeks after the operation. After a tummy tuck, you get a waist belt. Both the sports bra and the waist belt are specially adapted to you and are necessary to achieve an optimal result. After discharge, you will come to us for regular check-ups in order to optimally support the healing process. As already mentioned, each intervention involves a different aftercare, these are described in detail on our website or I would be happy to clarify any questions in advance during a consultation with you.

When can I go back to work after a Mommy Makeover?

When you can start working again very much depends on the work and the intervention performed. In many cases, you can perform simple sedentary activities two to three days after the operation, but you should refrain from physical work and exercise for about three to six weeks. In any case, it is important to listen to your own body and its pain limit.

How long should I wait after a Mommy Makeover before I can start doing sports again?

When you can start exercising again depends on the interventions performed. As a rule, you should refrain from exercising for about three to six weeks.

What are the risks of a mommy makeover?

We offer you the all-roundsecurity service. Security through my many years of experience! I’ve already done over a thousand surgeries. Security through the Währing private clinic. A renowned clinic with perfectly trained staff. And security through my 24 hour availability. We discuss all open questions in advance and I clarify any possible risks.

Mommy Makeover Skin

Can I have botox or hyaluronic acid treatment during pregnancy or breastfeeding?

The answer from us is a resounding no. If pregnancy is suspected, none of the above agents should be used. The reason for this is that botulinum toxin is a medication and hyaluronic acid is a medical product, neither of which have been tested on pregnant women and therefore must not be used. Neither treatment should occur during breastfeeding. If you still want to have a treatment carried out, you must wean beforehand. It is worrying that there are still doctors who carry out these treatments during pregnancy or breastfeeding. However, we strongly advise against it, because this special time belongs to the mother and the child and no risk may be taken. If you still want to do something good for yourself and your skin, we refer to non-invasive treatment methods, which are also offered in our office.

I’m still breastfeeding. What methods can I use to rejuvenate my facial skin?

Non-invasive treatment methods are becoming increasingly popular and we also recommend having them carried out regularly. They are ideal for all those who do something good for their skin and want to counteract the natural aging process, but who do not want or are not allowed to undergo surgery, hyaluronic acid or botox treatment. Theaesthetics offers, for example, the Hydra Facial or PERK treatment. These are treatments for skin renewal, combined with an exfoliation and an infusion of specific serums that sustainably improve the health, skin texture and appearance of the skin. The skin is thus optimally cleaned and supplied with freshness and moisture. The result is skin that looks even, fresh and vital.

The many sleepless nights left a tired expression on my face. Which treatments can counteract this?

Especially in the first months after the birth of the child, lack of sleep and physical exertion leave marks on the mother’s facial features. In addition, there is often no time to take care of yourself. The signs of fatigue and skin aging can be “conjured up” from the face within a few minutes immediately after weaning, with the right combination of botulinum toxin and filler. We would be happy to help you look rejuvenated and relaxed.

As a result of pregnancy, my pigment spots have become stronger or new ones have formed. What treatment method is there for this?

Pigment spots can be treated very well by laser in our office. We use the new Ellipse Nordlys ™laser for this. It stands for excellent effectiveness, high treatment security and high patient comfort.

Wrinkles have formed on the neck and décolleté during pregnancy and breastfeeding. What can I do about it?

It must be said in advance that you should absolutely have weaned before you have the listed treatments carried out. With the right combination of treatments, very good and long-lasting results can be achieved. Hyaluronic acid creates an increased water absorption in the tissue and is therefore suitable for the short-term treatment of neck wrinkles. To achieve long-lasting results, but also to delay the formation of wrinkles, we recommend a combination of Radiesse® – a collagen booster and Ultherapy® – a highly focused ultrasound.

As a result of the pregnancy, small bumps on the skin formed on my upper body. How can I have it removed?

Small imperfections in the skin can be removed very well with the help of our laser.

I have had a variety of blood sponges since my pregnancy. What can I do about it?

There are several ways to remove blood sponges. The most common method is the laser. In our office, we remove senile hemangiomas using ND: YAG lasers. A beam of light destroys the blood vessels and treats the red pigment in a targeted manner. Afterwards, the sun or the solarium should be avoided, as this can lead to pigment disorders . Depending on the size of the blood sponge, a fine scar may remain, but this is rarely the case. The treatment is generally considered to be low-risk and painless, with no downtime.

Pregnancy made my connective tissue fluffy and my cellulite stronger. Which treatment method would you recommend?

Worldwide, up to 80% of all women are affected by cellulite in the course of their lives. Due to our genes, the blood circulation, or the structure of our skin and connective tissue, cellulite occurs more and more with the aging process. With the Cellfina® technology, the previously marked treatment areas are anesthetized locally, sucked in through a special attachment and then treated with a fine microblade in the next step. The connective tissue fibers between the skin and the deep tissue are severed, thereby smoothing the skin. Cellulite on the buttocks and thighs can thus be reduced effectively and, above all, permanently. The dents disappear permanently because the fibers cannot reconnect using the Cellfina® process. Cellfina treatment should only be carried out once. The application takes 45 to 90 minutes and hardly takes any downtime.

Spider veins formed on my legs during pregnancy. Do you offer treatment methods for this?

Due to permanently increased pressure in the finer veins, the original elasticity diminishes, the veins widen and become visible as red-bluish meandering vascular structures and thus impair the complexion. Spider veins are considered medically harmless, but are a cosmetic problem. Women are more often affected than men because of hormonal influences, pregnancy or weak connective tissue. With the development of gentle and safe laser technology, it is also possible to treat spider veins, since the laser can close the affected small veins with millimeter precision. Here the vessel walls are glued and then removed from the body. This technology eliminates the risk of scarring. Neither bandages nor support stockings are necessary and there is no downtime.

I had a caesarean section and unfortunately the scar is still very visible. What would you recommend?

A caesarean section scar can be treated very well by laser in our office. Since not every scar is the same as another, we tailor your scar therapy to measure. The basic prerequisite for the treatment and an optimal treatment result is an untanned skin. The use of a self-tanner is also not recommended before treatment. An anesthetic cream is applied 10 minutes before the treatment. There may be a slight burning and feeling of heat during treatment, which is reduced to a minimum by cooling and applying anesthetic cream. After the treatment, slight reddening, swelling and a slight peeling of the skin can occur, which quickly subsides. After four to six weeks, the result is clearly visible. We recommend three to five sessions every 6 weeks.

Mommy Makeover Body Shaping

Although I do sports regularly and pay attention to my diet, I can’t do it, the figure to achieve that I would like to have. What intervention would you advise me to do?

Despite regular “after baby workouts” and a disciplined diet, it is still not possible for many women to get rid of their baby pounds in everyday life. Defining muscles in particular is difficult in the long run under the accumulation of fat. Liposuction is one of the most frequently performed procedures in plastic surgery. Many women take advantage of the opportunity to get rid of those fat cells that they had already disturbed before pregnancy, and are therefore slimmer after pregnancy than before. VASER® lipo technology has been successfully used in plastic surgery for several years. With VASER® liposuction, the ultrasound energy gently removes the fatty tissue from the environment. What is special about this technique: despite the reduction in fat cells, the connective tissue is protected and additional skin shrinkage is created. Our tip: To achieve an even nicer tightening effect, you can use Cool Plasma – Renuvion® after liposuction. I would be happy to advise you personally whether an invasive procedure might be right for you or whether treatment with the Coolcrushachieve® willthe desired result.

I would like to get rid of my stubborn fat deposits. Does this have to be done via liposuction, or are there other methods?

If you have some fat pads that do not want to move away despite exercise and a low-calorie diet, but do not want to undergo liposuction, Coolcrush® can be a suitable alternative. In an individual consultation, I will check with you whether this method can achieve the desired result.

Due to the strong weight gain or weight loss during and after pregnancy, my butt has now become limp. Even sport and a high-protein diet are not enough to make it look plump again. What can I do?

The Brazilian Butt surgical technique was invented and developed in Brazil – the country that is said to have the most beautiful buttocks. This method has now been further perfected in America and Europe. Autologous fat is injected into the butt, which changes and adjusts the contours. The bottom looks smaller and more plump, the contours more harmonious. The aim is to emphasize a beautiful waist and to harmonize the outside of the thighs. This makes the leg look longer and the bottom more compact. The extracted fat can now be applied to the zones that show a volume deficit. After the operation, we recommend wearing a compression bodice for about six weeks. The seams that are only at the puncture points are not removed after. Simple, sedentary activities are possible again after just three days. Physical work should be carried out again after two weeks at the earliest. Six weeks later, you can start exercising again without restrictions. The costs of the operations depend on the extent of the intervention. Here, the number of regions in which fat has to be extracted and the total duration of the intervention are decisive.

Although I have reached my desired weight and regularly do abdominal training, my abdominal muscles no longer look like they did before pregnancy. Which intervention is right for me?

Many mothers visit us after births or pregnancies and want their feminine, more defined silhouette back. Despite good nutrition and regular exercise, the excess tissue cannot be got rid of. During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles have expanded and there may have been gaps between the abdominal muscles. Many patients therefore come to us with the desire to have the abdominal wall tightened and to reduce the size.  With a tummy tuck, the silhouette can be adjusted and the center of the body can be brought back into harmony. The abdominal muscles are restored to their original shape and the abdominal wall is strengthened. The entire tissue can be mobilized and removed with a cut in the lower abdomen and possibly in the region of the navel. Skin and muscles can be tightened gently, the silhouette is reshaped. An abdominal belt is adjusted immediately after the operation, which ensures optimal results. As a rule, this should be worn for six weeks. In many cases, scars cannot be placed visibly in the underwear area. Depending on the planning, stretch marks and appendix scars can also be removed by this procedure. In a personal consultation, it is discussed together whether this solution is the right one for you or whether a significantly smaller intervention can offer the perfect solution for you.

Mommy Makeover Intimate Genital Surgery

The birth caused major changes in the area, making me feel uncomfortable naked. What are the options here?

The female genital area is also often a big taboo. No wonder that most women do not like to speak openly about changes in the genital area, especially after a natural birth. It is not uncommon for the labia to be significantly enlarged after giving birth. For the women concerned, this change in the genital area means that they are ashamed of their partner and this condition affects a full sex life. Surgical intervention, which takes place under local anesthesia or in twilight sleep, is often the most suitable solution. However, I would be happy to clarify which solution is best for you in a detailed consultation with you.

Important: Beyond any checklist, listen to your gut feeling about the procedure and the surgeon treating you.
