Mommy Makeover in Turkey: As a woman, you may find that your body has gone through dramatic changes after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Most of these changes are noted in the breasts and abdomen.
The physical stretching of the abdominal wall following pregnancy leads to a loose abdomen. Sometimes, lax skin and fat deposits persist after childbirth. The process of breastfeeding can also lead to sagging breasts. In addition, asymmetries may develop or just an overall deflated appearance. Even the labia minora can stretch substantially during childbirth resulting in discomfort.
With advances in cosmetic surgery, these concerns can be addressed by a combination of procedures packaged together and called the mommy makeover. At Şafak Hospital, patients can rely on our plastic surgeons to guide them through a comprehensive range of alternatives to flatten the abdomen, lift breasts with or without implants, and meet other body-contouring and cosmetic needs.

About a Mommy Makeover in Turkey Istanbul
Below, you can read the detailed procedural information of each surgery that may be included in a mommy makeover in Turkey Istanbul.
Tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to provide a flatter, firmer abdomen, and to help eliminate the excess saggy skin that many women are left with after childbirth. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia. During the surgery, the surgeon will remove excess skin, tighten loose skin, and strengthen the abdominal muscles. In some cases, tummy tuck will be done in conjunction with liposuction for better results.
A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, reshapes the breasts and raises their profile by tightening the surrounding tissue and removing excess skin. It may be done as a stand-alone procedure or carried out at the same time as breast augmentation. The procedure can be done under general anesthesia or local anesthesia along with IV sedation. The incisions will vary depending on the amount of sagging in the breasts and excess skin.
A breast augmentation is the best technique to have rounder and fuller breasts. This cosmetic surgery involves having implants inserted into each breast to increase the size or restore volume of the breasts after pregnancy. Breast augmentation can be done under either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. It may only partially correct drooping or sagging breasts and is often performed along with a breast lift for optimal results. Patients need to wear a surgical compression bra after this surgery.
Liposuction is the process of improving body contours by suctioning out excess fat deposits. While liposuction is the gold standard for removing fat and can slim and reshape stubborn areas, it cannot address sagging skin or loose muscles. So, to get the best result, it is recommended that liposuction be done at the same time as a tummy tuck for women after childbirth or significant weight loss.
Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty
Labiaplasty and vaginoplasty are common vaginal rejuvenation treatments. A labiaplasty involves surgery on the labia to reduce the size, modify the shape, or create symmetry between the lips. It enhances confidence and comfort after childbirth. A vaginoplasty is done to help strengthen and tighten up the vagina after childbirth. These procedures can be carried out at the same time.
Recovery: What to Expect After a Mommy Makeover in Turkey

He will provide you with detailed post-operative care instructions prior to the surgery and be available to answer any questions you may have along the way. Our goal is to make your recovery as safe and quick as possible so you can return to your daily life and enjoy the benefits of your surgery and refined body.
