Getting Postpartum Surgery in Australia

There are a wide variety of reasons why a mother would have surgery after pregnancy. Generally, postpartum surgery targets the appearance of the abdomen and breasts, as these are the areas that are usually most affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding.

If you’re considering post-pregnancy surgery, whether for cosmetic reasons or to treat separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti), you might benefit from consulting with Dr Tavakoli.

More about post-pregnancy surgery

Post-pregnancy surgery refers to a group of surgical operations aimed at addressing women’s cosmetic concerns after childbirth. Such operations can vary depending on the work that needs to be done and often include the following:

Abdominoplasty – also known as a “tummy tuck” operation. It is a surgical procedure designed to surgically reduce the stomach by removing a significant volume of fat from the lower and middle sections of abdomen along with excess skin.

Breast mastopexy (lift) – It’s another common surgical operation performed as a part of post-pregnancy surgery in Australia. It removes skin and repositions the breasts to treat breast laxity.

Women can experience different changes as they go through pregnancy. Hence there is no such thing as the “whole package” for every patient. Again the specific operations performed as part of post-pregnancy surgery in Australia can vary depending on the needs of the patient.
