What is a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeover is simply a series of aesthetic surgeries recovering the female body after pregnancy, birth and lactation.

Having a baby is the most wonderful feeling but sometimes your body changes in ways that cannot be recovered with diet and exercise. Most common body changes after becoming a mother are volume loss in the breasts, sagging abdomen and breasts, stretch marks, thicker thighs and fuller waists.

Planning your look with your plastic surgeon and having a better-than-before body is easy with a mommy makeover. Breast augmentation and a breast lift, abdominoplasty to get rid of that excess skin around your waist and liposuction at couple of areas will not only make you happy; but you will also feel rejuvenated.

Mommy makeover surgeries are usually combined and completed in half a day. Patients stay in hospital care are discharged after 2-3 days. The self-confidence boost happens instantly because once the patient is out of the OR, she feels lighter, moved on.

For the best results of a mommy makeover, the age of the patient is also a determining factor. The younger the patient is at the time of surgery, the higher their skin quality and therefore the results will be. It takes about six months for the uterus to contract and another six months for the breasts to shrink after breastfeeding. Once enough time passes and the mother’s weight stabilizes after birth, she can go back to her pre-baby body any time she wants.

What can you not do after Eye Surgery?

Eye surgeries are usually painless, quick and does not require full sedation like other surgical operations. The patient usually walks out of the hospital within the same day of the operation and can resume most daily routines.

On the other hand, there are some key points to keep in mind. Most eye surgeries need eye drops that makes vision blurry for a couple of hours. You cannot see clearly and should not be driving. A accompany or a chaperone should be driving or taking you out of the hospital after the procedure. As the patient, you will not be able to see your phone clearly until the effect of the drops wear off and your eyes are rested. Direct exposure to light is not advised so the hospital will provide you with glasses to protect your eyes from bright light. You will be advised to use sunglasses for the following days/weeks to prevent any disturbances.

The blurry vision is common, especially after common procedures like laser surgery or cataract. It takes a couple of days for the eyes to adjust and heal and it is important to use eye drops regularly during that period. Patients should not touch or scratch their eyes, be careful while using shampoo and avoid dust-like particles entering the eye.

After eye surgeries, surgeons expect to see the patients for a follow-up appointment the next day. Your eye surgeon will tell you what is normal and not for your specific eye operation but typically, the vision is cleared within a few hours and the discomfort in the eyes wear off in a couple of days. It is important to keep the eyes clean, not touch the eyes (since they are like open wounds) and rest the eyes – avoid using screen time.

What can you not do after Rhinoplasty treatment?

Rhinoplasty is a surgery that the patient undergoes in an operating room, fully sedated. So there are some crucial points one needs to watch out after the operation and in following days. The patients stays usually 1 night at the hospital and since there may be feeling of nausea after the sedation, rhinoplasty patients need to take it slow for a few days after the treatment. Using cold press as much as possible and keeping your head high would help with swelling.

The first week is the hardest period because there may be some bruising and/or swelling after the operation, especially around the eyes. It is advised to plan a light social week after the surgery. The splint is removed within the first week of the surgery so if the patient has no bruising or swelling, there are no visible signs of the surgery but if there are, they are healed after 2 weeks. It is advised still to keep daily activities slow and wait until the end of first month to do cardiovascular activities.

Doctors advise to start wearing glasses after 6-8 weeks, depending on the difficulty level of the rhinoplasty and the nose and cartilage within the bone. The first few weeks after the operation the bones are still settling so it is important not to use heavy eye glasses or blow your nose too hard. The swollen nasal tissues may create an urge to blow your nose but resist that urge as much as possible. A new nose will bring a new appearance, possibly self-confidence and a fresh breath. If the nose is well taken care of after the rhinoplasty treatment, the patient will definitely be more than happy with the result.

What is the best Obesity Surgery to lose weight?

Obesity is a global health problem and more people are affected by obesity every day. There are multiple number of solutions to obesity but one’s best solution may not be suitable for another. The metabolic components such as diabetes, hypertension, heart problems, productive problems for young females or knee problems for elders may be defining factors for surgeries.

The first parameter to see if a patient is suitable for obesity surgery is their BMI (body mass index). If your BMI is under 25, you are in “normal weight” limits are not suitable for any kind of obesity surgery. If your BMI is between 26-30, you are “overweight” but advised to lose weight by dietary restrictions and increasing exercise and body movement. BMI 31-35 with metabolic problems mentioned above needs to be considered carefully by a bariatric surgeon IF the patient is found suitable for a surgery. Stomach botox or stomach balloon are most common type of surgeries for this category.

Type 2 Obesity is a category with BMI 36-40 where there is almost no contradiction about the need of a surgery. Again stomach botox or stomach balloon may be suitable depending on many different factors such as gender, age, metabolism, etc… Botox or balloon are usually effective for 6 months and may need a second injection or a removal, so these are temporary solutions with an expiry date.

Patients with BMI 41-50 definitely need operation but stomach botox and/or balloon will not be enough to lose weight. Sleeve gastrectomy, gastric by-pass or transit bi-partition operations are some of the surgical solutions for these patients. These are serious surgical procedures which will require a life style change afterwards. Some of these procedures mean the changing of digestive system and how each organ works.

There is NOT a simple best obesity surgery to lose weight. Each person is different and should definitely consult with a professional before making a decision.
