1.WHICH IS THE RIGHT PROCEDURE FOR ME?
If the skin elasticity is good after pregnancy, excess fat can be liposuctioned from the tummy and the skin contracts and redrapes. However, often the stretched skin does not contract after delivery; it sags and forms a pendulous fold. Such inelastic skin will not re-drape and is best removed in a Tummy Tuck.The abdominal muscles that have become loose, lax and separated by the pregnancy can be tightened in an Abdominoplasty at the time of the tuck. Excess fat in the flank and lower back is liposuctioned for a better waist in lipoabdominoplasty. Ancillary liposuction of hips, buttocks thighs and upper back rolls are done, as a part of liposcultpture and these procedures will effectively give your Pre- pregnancy tummy shape back.
2.MY BREASTS HAVE BECOME SMALL AFTER PREGNANCY AND BREAST FEEDING, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
It is more common for the breasts to sag after they loose volume after pregnancy. The skin envelope becomes loose and breasts lose their firmness. Breast lift, (mastopexy) corrects this. If along with sagging, the breasts have lost their volume too, an augmentation mastopexy is what you need.
3.I HAVE DEVELOPED A LOT OF STRETCH MARKS AFTER PREGNANCY, CAN IT BE TREATED?
For stretch marks, toning tightening and texture improvement, there are peels and lasers.
4.WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY BREASTS HAVE SAGGED AND DEFLATED AFTER PREGNANCY?
This procedure is most suitable for women who have small, underdeveloped breasts, breasts which are asymmetric (one smaller than the other), or breasts which have decreased in size after a woman has had children. It is also suitable for women who feel they should have bigger breasts to give them a proportionate figure. Implants may also be used to reconstruct breasts after mastectomy.
Adult woman of any age can benefit from breast augmentation, however it is recommended that breasts be fully developed.
Breast Augmentation is a highly individualized procedure- one that you should choose to undergo to fulfill your own desire for enhanced breast size, not the desire of others.
5.I HAVE DEVELOPED A LOOSE VAGINA FOLLOWING MY MULTIPLE DELIVERIES, CAN YOU HELP?
A loose or lax vagina can be tightened by a procedure called vaginoplasty. The perineal muscles which have got dilated are tightened. If there is an excess of vainal mucosa, that is removed as well.
What is vulval rejuvenation? Following pregnancies, the labia minora can get stretched and long, this can be reduced. If the labia majora ( outer lips) loose their fullness and deflate, that can be augmented naturally by injecting stem cells derived from your body fat. .
