What is a “Mommy Makeover”, or “body contouring”?

During pregnancy and breastfeeding, a woman’s body undergoes changes due to weight gain. Breasts grow and the abdomen enlarges. Unless the body is healing very well and the elasticity of the skin is very good, women don’t need a Mommy Makeover.

But in general, women need them because their abdomen has sagged or because they can’t get rid of the stubborn fat around their waist or because their breasts have deflated

Although undergoing several operations at the same time can be discouraging, if the patient is in good health, it is entirely beneficial.

Many women are interested in this post-partum cosmetic surgery. This is because their child does not need to be breastfed and women want to get their old body back, or at least have a body that looks similar enough. Few people know what a Mommy Makeover is.

Patients who come to Turkey for a Mommy Makeover know that they will get good results and a natural look. This operation is chosen by women who have become mothers and who need breast augmentation, tummy tuck or abdominoplasty to regain their former body shape. Other operations may be planned depending on the patient’s profile.

So what is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a relatively standard mix of plastic surgery performed at the same time: a breast lift, a tummy tuck and liposuction (usually of the abdomen).

These are generally the most common procedures. However, breast reduction or augmentation may also be carried out at the patient’s request or at the doctor’s suggestion.

Women who have had a caesarean section can also have their scar revised. In some cases, this procedure is almost akin to full body transformation surgery.

The good thing about a Mommy Makeover is that the results are achieved all at once and the recovery times for several procedures are merged. A woman gets the body image she wants in one go. This can also be called body contouring in a way, because your body will be reshaped, modified or changed.

Why Mommy Makeover is the best choice

When In addition, after every operation, there is the recovery time, the pain. Whereas with the Mommy Makeover procedure in Turkey, the patient does everything in one go and can concentrate on her recovery rather than preparing physically and mentally for the next operation.

After pregnancy, a woman’s body is affected in many ways: the breasts may deflate or sag, the abdomen may sag or there may be stubborn fat, the breasts may have become too large.

The clinic will therefore most likely perform at least three of the procedures described below. Of course, the patient can say “I don’t want this cosmetic surgery” during the consultation. However, the plastic surgeon in Istanbul must advise what is best.

Breast lift and implants

During the consultation, the patient is asked what size she would like to have and the breast is checked for sagging. Implants are generally chosen according to the size of the breast pockets and the patient’s body.

Some patients may not want implants (very rarely) and are happy with a simple facelift, so only a facelift is performed. For more information on mastopexy, please see our page on breast lift surgery.

Breast reduction

This procedure alone is quite common. But with the Mommy Makeover procedure, it is not the most common. However, if the patient has a small body but her breasts have become too large for her liking, a breast reduction procedure can be performed instead of breast implants. For more information on this procedure, please visit our page dedicated to breast reduction surgery in Turkey.

Abdominoplasty is a procedure designed to flatten the abdomen and get rid of excess skin. If the amount of fat or skin is not too great, the doctor may decide to perform a mini-abdominoplasty. However, if the excess fat or skin is too great, the doctor may opt for an abdominoplasty.

After pregnancy, it’s normal to have fat that doesn’t go away, even if the patient has been exercising and dieting, sometimes it just doesn’t go away. Liposuction is therefore a good choice. There are various liposuction techniques.

  • Liposuction of the stomach, hips and buttocks
  • High-definition laser liposuction

Mommy Makeover results

The Mommy Makeover procedure is finally over. But it doesn’t stop there. The results are not permanent, unless the patient does not follow certain rules.

After the procedure, patients must devote themselves to a nourishing and active lifestyle. This is the most effective way of ensuring that the results of the mommy makeover last for a very long time. The diet patients choose and the amount of exercise they do will have a direct impact on the consistency of your results.

An appropriate diet normally includes proteins, fresh vegetables and wholegrain cereals. Of course, everyone is different and some patients see the benefits of working with a qualified nutritionist. The same applies to the willingness to work with personal trainers so that they can find a fitness programme that suits both their body and their lifestyle.

In other words, the end result of a Mommy Makeover can be substantial and can last a long time, but it all depends on the patient. To prevent the formation of new fat and maintain her new figure, the patient must also make an effort. The amount of work depends solely on the patient’s needs and physical characteristics.

Post-operative follow-up :

  • Week 1: The most difficult recovery period after the Mommy Makeover procedure. The patient’s body will be in a state of trauma, which is why patients will not be able to do more than sleep, eat, go to the toilet or move just enough to get their blood circulating.
  • Week 2: The patient will start to notice a difference in the way she feels. This may be painful and sensitive in the areas that have undergone the operation
  • Week 3: This week is the most difficult. Healing is not as rapid as before, but the patient will still feel tired.
    The patient should allow as much time as possible for proper healing. It would therefore be a good idea for him to have someone with him to help (friend or family member).
  • Week 4: The swelling has gone down and the patient should feel more energetic.
  • Weeks 5 and 6: The patient should start to feel big changes. Patients can resume their usual exercises, but at moderate intensity. Swelling should decrease and the incisions should be closed.

Swelling may take up to a year to disappear completely. If the patient has had a tummy tuck, this is normal.

Mommy Makeover in Turkey

Over the years, plastic surgery has become increasingly popular. However, as it has become ‘fashionable’, people have started to do it to feel better physically and mentally. However, prices have not come down.

This is why patients started looking at countries other than their own. Turkey, for example, has become a very popular country for plastic surgery, because prices are affordable and because Turkish plastic surgeons are highly experienced.

When patients compare the cost of a Mommy Makeover with the price in their own country, they notice that the cost in Istanbul is very low and the quality of the doctors is very high. So it’s a win-win situation for patients who come to Turkey.

FAQ – Frequently asked questions

How long does a Mommy Makeover last in Turkey?

Mommy Makeover corrects body imperfections acquired during pregnancy. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime cosmetic operation, because the results are permanent. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and do not become pregnant again.

The Mommy Makeover is a combination of several surgeries performed simultaneously. The procedure is not painful, as it is performed under general anaesthetic. However, when you wake up, there may be some tolerable discomfort in the areas operated on.

Turkey is increasingly setting itself apart from other destinations, thanks in particular to its high success rate for cosmetic surgery. For example, the Mommy Makeover is 95% successful in Turkey! Modern clinics have been set up here, using the best surgeons in Europe.

The results of post-natal surgery are long-lasting and permanent. However, to appreciate your new figure, you need to wait six months after the operation. This is the time needed to ensure that all the retouched areas have healed and that there is no oedema or bruising.

One of the conditions for being eligible for a Mommy Makeover is that you do not intend to become pregnant again. Another pregnancy is not contraindicated. However, this will alter the results of the Mommy Makeover. It will therefore be necessary to have another post-maternity surgery.

Since the Mommy Makeover operation combines several aesthetic procedures in one, it’s important to make sure that they are all carried out on the same day. As they are all performed on the same day, it is only necessary to spend one night in hospital. The total medical stay in Turkey is 7 days.
