MMO: Things you should know…
- Most women experience some degree of breast changes: increase or decrease in size, sagging, changes in NAC. This requires various types of breast lifts with or without augmentation.
- The abdominal wall changes with stretch marks, extra skin along with relaxation/separation of recti muscles requires muscle divarication repair and abdominoplasty.
- Stubborn fat deposits appear due to hormonal changes of pregnancy which refuse to go with diet and exercise. This requires liposuction.
- Pregnancy induced changes in the labia and vagina are amenable to labioplasty and/or vaginoplasty.
- Combination of one or two of these procedures can be performed at the same time or as staged procedures under local or general anaesthesia.
