Pregnancy and having a child are the two most important moments in a woman’s life. The natural changes that a woman’s body goes through during pregnancy disappear after childbirth and breastfeeding. However, many times, they do not disappear completely. Skin laxity, body fat accumulation, breast sagging and signs of stress and fatigue on a woman’s face, are the main aesthetic and functional problems that the Mommy Makeover can successfully address.
The Mommy Makeover is an integrated treatment that is adjusted to the desires and needs of each woman. In fact, it is a combination of a certain number of cosmetic surgeries in specific body areas that can be performed in a single session or in multiple sessions.
Dr. Varnalidis performs a series of Mommy Makeover cosmetic surgeries including rejuvenating the face by removing wrinkles and eliminating signs of fatigue, restoring breast volume and improving breast firmness, tightening the abdominal muscles, removing the excess skin and body fat from the abdomen area and reducing body fat that has accumulated in certain body areas.
Mommy Makeover procedures
Breast lift (mastopexy)
Sagging breasts are a major cause for concern for many women, especially after childbirth and breastfeeding. Breasts lose their firmness over time and can no longer support their volume resulting in the appearance of sagging breasts. This is a very common aesthetic problem that can be addressed through a breast lift.
A breast lift (mastopexy) improves the shape of the breasts with or without the use of implants, offering the desired firmness and an ideal youthful appearance.
Breast augmentation using implants
Breast augmentation (augmentation mammaplasty) is one of the most popular and well-known procedures. This procedure mainly concerns women who were recently pregnant. Breasts lose their firmness and suffer from volume atrophy after childbirth, due to certain processes, such as breastfeeding. Augmentation mammaplasty can reshape the breasts increasing their volume and improving their appearance.
Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
The anterior abdominal wall is one of the parts of the body that are more commonly affected by body weight changes, body fat accumulation and pregnancy. This procedure can be performed on women with normal body weight, who have excess skin and lax muscles in the abdomen area after childbirth, due to the changes that their body went through while they were pregnant.
The excess skin and body fat are surgically removed and the anterior abdominal wall muscles are tightened during this operation.
Liposuction (or liposculpture) is one of the most common and popular plastic surgery procedures. Liposuction can be combined with other procedures in order to remove accumulated body fat from certain body areas.
Facial rejuvenation using injectables
Wrinkles and signs of fatigue can be eliminated using injectables, such as Botox and hyaluronic acid, as well as through lipofilling. The use of injectables has increased in recent years. They are used mostly in facial cosmetic surgeries to fill deep wrinkles, such as the ones of the nasolabial folds, and also to increase lip and cheek volume. Soft tissue volume is restored using dermal fillers. The fact that the skin regains its firmness, while deep wrinkles disappear after these operations, attests to their effectiveness. Lipofilling is a revolutionary technique of Microfat grafting. The filler used is permanent and completely compatible with the human body. Lipofilling restores the facial soft tissue volume that was lost to aging or due to chronic fatigue.
