All About the “Mommy Makeover” procedure
DW Skin and Body offers a wide range of services and we want to share a bit more about each to try and answer as many of the frequently asked questions as possible.
While pregnancy and childbirth are momentous moments in any woman’s life, many women are less than thrilled with their post-baby body. The body stores fat differently during pregnancy to provide vital energy to mother and baby. The breasts may sag and appear deflated after breastfeeding, and the abdominal wall may not return to its original firmness. What is known as the “Mommy Makeover” has become one of the most popular combination plastic surgery techniques, designed specifically to address common issues faced by women who have been through pregnancy and breastfeeding. The surgical technique has found its way into mainstream media with it becoming the procedure of choice among Hollywood elite.
One reason for its popularity is that the mommy makeover has no set components; each procedure is custom-tailored to fit the individual patient’s unique needs. However, the surgical approach generally starts with a breast and abdomen contouring procedure (breast augmentation or a breast lift, 4D ultrasound liposculpture and tummy tuck), then adding additional elements as needed.
A FEW IMPORTANT DETAILS:
These procedures are performed in general theatre under general anaesthesia. The timing for this procedure may differ from patient to patient as it is tailored to address your needs.
This will vary according to your desired results. We set up a personal consultation where we discuss what it is that you would like and recommendations are made. It is difficult to pin point an exact estimate due to the personalisation of each, however, a starting price for the things such as the hospital, post-operative garments, anaesthetist and surgeon would start at about R75 000.00.
