Reclaim your body post birth, with a range of treatments from Angelica Kavouni MD FRCS EBOPRAS Plastic Surgeon.
Many women now choose to start their family later which is great news for careers, but bad news for their bodies. As we age skin looses its elasticity and ability to 'bounce back', which means that the residual effects of those bounteous breasts, glowing skin and growing belly can be difficult to fix. Proper nutrition and exercise help but advances in plastic surgical techniques combined with modern day scar management bring good news for those whose bodies need extra help.
Angelica Kavouni MD FRCS Plastic Surgeon has cosmetic solutions for all of pregnancy's less welcome imprints. "Critics of so called 'yummy mummy' surgery say that woman should embrace the 'scars' of motherhood and the majority of women do, but I feel strongly that women who choose to seek help are not made to feel like lepers. Ultimately feelings of low self esteem with altered body image can put extra stress on relationships and family life." "I see increasing numbers of post pregnant women who have either had multiple pregnancies or who have lost their pregnancy weight very quickly, leaving large amounts of loose, stretched skin around the tummy. A combined procedure of tummy tuck and with mastopexy can dramatically boost a woman’s confidence."
Angelica offers a range of post-pregnancy treatments and combinations of treatments, including mini short scar tummy tucks to remove loose skin, reduce stretch marks and tighten muscles, liposculpture to give definition to the waist, small scar breast uplift with or without top of the range teardrop or high profile implants. Furthermore Fraxel laser treatments offer an effective and safe way to remove brown pigmentation (melasma) that can appear on the cheeks and forehead during pregnancy.
Allow six months after breastfeeding stops before considering surgical intervention.
Post Pregnancy Packages
Mini tummy tuck
Abdominal muscles and skin stretch beyond the point where they can return to normal. A mini tummy tuck scar, neater than a C section, removes loose skin and stretch marks whilst tightening the muscles achieves an athletic and toned appearance. Liposculpture will give a greater definition to the waist, hips, buttocks, thighs and knees.
Minimal scar breast uplift
Suspension ligaments holding the breast lose their elasticity and volume is lost from the upper pole of the breast causing drooping. Breast uplift leaves small, invisible scars hidden around the nipple areola.
A 'teardrop' implant inserted under the muscle at the same time gives the breast more substance and natural shape whereas round, high profile implants offer an attractive cleavage.
Tummy tuck with minimal scar breast uplift
Surgical reshaping of the breasts and tummy is a great combination technique that helps your body regain an elegant and attractive form all in one go.
Brown skin pigmentation or Melasma can appear on the cheeks, around the eyes, on the forehead or lips. Fraxel laser is an extremely effective and safe way to permanently remove these very resistant dark skin patches.
Patented ultrasonic technology from Vaser™ has brought a new dimension to the process of fat removal. Ultrasound waves select (liposelection) and melt fat cells leaving blood vessels and nerves untouched so less pain, less bruising, less recovery time with instant results.
Angelica: "The great advantage of the Vaser is the way it can tackle even the smallest pocket of fat and is an effective way to sculpt the calves, thighs, ankles, chin, face and male chest."
