Investing in Postpartum Surgery in Sydney

Are you looking for a plastic surgeon for postpartum surgery in Sydney?

Becoming a mother is certainly one of the most significant phases in a woman’s life and can be a most fulfilling experience. However, childbirth can put a lot of strain on a woman’s body, and the body may never go back to the way it was before pregnancy.

Changes to the body after pregnancy are normal and natural; but despite this, some women may seek surgery to address these cosmetic changes. For example, it is common for the breasts to fluctuate in volume, which, combined with the effects of breastfeeding, can cause the skin of the breasts to stretch.

Postpartum surgery can reposition the breasts, as well as remove excess abdominal skin, to help a woman attain her post-pregnancy body goals. Every woman has different goals and natural characteristics and will therefore get a different result. If you’re interested in getting post-pregnancy surgery, you can discuss your needs with Dr Tavakoli.

Postpartum surgery in Australia is a group of surgical operations that mothers can opt for following their pregnancy. Such procedures include breast lift (mastopexy), tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), breast augmentation mammoplasty and breast reduction mammoplasty surgery just to mention a few. Let’s go ahead and take a closer look at some of these procedures.

Common procedures involved in post-pregnancy surgery

Breast lift (mastopexy)

Breast laxity is a common aesthetic concern for many women who seek post-pregnancy surgery in Sydney. A mastopexy, also called a breast lift, can reshape the breast by removing excess or stretched breast skin. The procedure can also help reposition the nipple and reduce the areola (the tissues immediately surrounding the nipples) which can get larger because of breast feeding.

Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty

Yet another common post pregnancy problem that women can encounter is the large deposits of skin and fat on their abdomen. As part of the operation for postpartum surgery in Sydney, abdominoplasty can reduce the extra skin and fat from this area, in addition to treating stretched or separated abdominal muscles.

Breast reduction mammoplasty

In some cases, pregnancy can cause a women’s breast to become excessively large. A breast reduction mammoplasty surgery can be performed to rectify such a problem through the surgical removal of excess fat and breast tissue.

Now these are but a few of the procedures that women can opt for when seeking a postpartum operation. Keep in mind that the effects of pregnancy and child rearing can differ among patients so the total cost of the procedure can certainly vary as well depending on the needs of the patient. You should also know that good results can’t be guaranteed, and there and risks involved in any surgery.

It’s important for women to opt for a surgeon who will be attentive to their needs and preferences for postpartum surgery in Sydney – you can expect nothing less out of Dr. Tavakoli and his team of accomplished plastic surgeons.
