Post pregnancy body got you down? Then a mommy makeover from Mexico City might be the affordable option you, as a new mother, have been looking for. Mommy makeover is a sort of package deal that many plastic surgeons are now offering. It addresses the body issues a woman faces after a pregnancy and offers to correct them all in a single session surgery.
A typical mommy makeover includes a tummy tuck, breast enhancement and liposuction. Other treatments that are sometimes combined with a mommy makeover are skin tighteners, cellulite treatments and stretch mark elimination
Any woman who wishes to restore her body to what it looked it pre-pregnancy should consider a mommy makeover. For a lot of women, regular dieting and exercise doesn’t do the trick. Also, many mothers do not find the time to fully commit themselves to achieve their body goals.
It is recommended to get a mommy makeover at least three to six months after delivery. It is also necessary to stop breast-feeding before getting a consultation so that your doctor can get an idea of the natural shape and size of your breasts.
If you wish to still have children, then you shouldn’t be getting a mommy makeover just yet. Wait till you are done having children and then get the procedure done, because if you have children after getting the procedure then all its effects will be reversed. Also, you should discuss with your doctor how much time it will take to recover from all the surgeries you will get. Keep in mind that it will be difficult to take care of your children post-surgery so make sure you have some sort of help around.
Recently, Mexico has become the go -destination for medical tourism. This is because of its low costs, qualified doctors and world class facilities. For people living in US and Canada, it is a great option.
The foremost advantage of going to Mexico City to get mommy makeover is the fact that it is very easy to get there for people living in North America. There are regular and cheap flights going to Mexico City from almost every American and Canadian city. With Mexico City being so near and easily approachable, it would feel just like home. Also, Mexico City is a beautiful tourist spot so you can turn your medical trip into a vacation.
Another big advantage are the much lower costs. A mommy makeover involves three to four surgeries, which obviously means it’s expensive - especially at home. A new mother will have a hard time affording such an expensive procedure, which makes Mexico City a good option. American and Canadian can save at least 50 percent compared to back home - and in a great deal of cases a ot more. Another big plus side is that travelling and living is cheap so you end up saving thousands of dollars.
The best part of going to Mexico City is that many doctors who treat medical tourists have received medical training from the US. This means they’re training is the same as a US doctor, and they can speak English so you won’t have to face communication issues. You’ll also find many facilities on par with those at home, with the same due care and attention paid to quality standards, especially in the major hospitals.
That said, it is smart and very necessary to be cautious when you are going to another country to get a medical procedure from. Countries such as Mexico, which have become famous for medical tourism, do have their share of sub-standard facilities. It is a risk that we at Medical Departures take very seriously. From qualifications, professional memberships, safety standards, and criminal records we make certain we are sending patients to facilities where the credentials are evident. We also value the feedback our patients give us so we publish their reviews, while also personally visiting the facilities ourselves.
The surgeries that usually are a part of mommy makeover target trouble areas for women post pregnancy, which are the breasts and the tummy.
With a tummy tuck, the skin around the tummy is tightened and any loose skin is gotten rid of. Because it permanently tightens the skin, a tummy tuck is considered to be the harder one to bear out of all the others. There are a variety of tummy tuck procedures available and your doctor will recommend the one that is most suited to your concerns.
A mommy makeover also includes a liposuction as pregnancy causes excess fat to deposit in the tummy, hip and thigh area. Liposuction is a surgery that sucks out any unwanted fat from the body with help of a special vacuum. Usually a liposuction will be done on the stomach area before a tummy tuck is performed because losing weight after a tummy tuck surgery will cause the tightened skin to sag.
Breast lifts are procedures done to restore shape and lift back to breasts that can sag after pregnancy and breast-feeding. You can also get breast implants to restore fullness to breasts. It is up to you to decide the size you want, and there are two options to choose from: saline and silicon.
Because the procedure involves more than one surgery, it does take longer than other cosmetic surgeries to perform. Typically, one procedure will take five to six hours to perform. Because multiple surgeries are involved, general anesthesia is administered to the patient. To reduce the time spent under anesthesia, and hence reduce complications, tummy tuck and breast enhancement are performed at the same time.
Due to the fact that there are typically three surgeries done at the same time, there are quite a few risks involved with getting a mommy makeover, but it is important to remember any surgery no matter where it is carried out carries a risk. It is important that you discuss all the risks associated with getting a mommy makeover with your doctor.
