Pregnancy and childbirth can take a great toll on a woman’s body and figure, particularly the abdomen and breasts.
The more children a woman has, the more changes are likely to affect the body. That’s why many women, once they’ve finished having children, find themselves contemplating restorative plastic surgery to improve the appearance of the abdomen and breasts. Those who have undergone these procedures say that it has given them a whole new lease on life.
Dr Lim’s post pregnancy procedures are designed to meet each woman’s needs, with personalised treatment plans developed in the consultation process. This treatment plan might include a mastopexy (breast lift) with or without implants, a tummy tuck and/or liposuction.
Post pregnancy procedures ares best performed when a woman has finished having children, her children are old enough to not need constant care, and the family has sufficient support that the patient can have time to recover after surgical procedures. The staff at My Klinik are available to provide any help patients may need, including arranging special times for consultations and follow-ups to fit in with the family.
For more information on potential procedures, see the individual treatment pages or contact My Klinik for a consultation.
Breast augmentation can give long-lasting and natural-looking breasts that may leave you with improved self-confidence. The surgical procedure is used primarily to improve the size and also the shape of a woman’s breasts with the use of breast implants. Placement of the implant behind each breast increases its volume and enhances the overall shape of the breast.
In some cases, fat transfer/injection can be used in addition to implants to enhance volume in certain areas of the breast, to achieve better symmetry, for more upper pole fullness and/or for a better cleavage line.
Combining a mastopexy (breast lift) with breast augmentation (breast implants) can give long-lasting and natural-looking breasts that may leave you with improved self-confidence. Dr Lim is experienced at raising and firming the breasts by removing excess skin to tighten the surrounding tissue.
Breast lifts can help balance uneven breasts, reshape sagging breasts following pregnancy and breastfeeding, raise the position of downward pointing nipples and areolas, reduce the size of the areolas and increase the firmness of soft breasts. Those looking to also enhance the volume of their breasts can achieve this with breast implants at the same time. In some cases, fat injection can also enhance fullness in the upper pole of the breast and help improve cleavage lines.
Many women, while satisfied with their breast size, still feel self-conscious about their breasts for a variety of reasons. Breast lifts (also known as mastopexy) can help balance uneven breasts, reshape sagging breasts following pregnancy and breastfeeding, raise the position of downward pointing nipples and areolas, reduce the size of the areolas and increase the firmness of soft breasts.
Dr Lim is experienced at raising and firming the breasts by removing excess skin to tighten the surrounding tissue. In some cases, fat injections can also be performed to increase upper pole fullness or improve cleavage lines.
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is designed for those that feel that no matter how many sit ups they do, they still can’t get rid of excess skin and fat on their stomach. This procedure is popular with women who have had children and are looking to tighten the abdominal wall and want a flatter, toned stomach. During a tummy tuck, excess fat and loose skin are removed and underlying muscles are tightened and repositioned.
The best candidates for a tummy tuck are patients who are in good shape, are not overweight, but have loose abdominal skin. This is commonly seen in women whose abdominal muscles and skin have been stretched out from multiple pregnancies, as well as people who have a loss of skin elasticity due to age or weight fluctuations.
Liposuction, commonly known as fat removal surgery, can help you to achieve your dream trim figure after pregnancy, by getting rid of fat in those problem areas that won’t seem to budge, no matter how healthy you eat or how vigorously you exercise. Our mummy makeover patients turn to liposuction for help with stubborn fat on their hips, thighs, buttocks, ankles, back, arms, stomach or chin.
Advances in liposuction techniques have greatly improved the potential results in recent years — specialist surgeons like Dr Lim can now remove up to five litres of fat relatively safely in a single procedure. During this procedure, Dr. Lim reshapes your body by removing stubborn fat deposits. He takes his time sculpting your new body, leaving you with a trimmer, defined physique.
