Are You An Ideal Candidate?

Post pregnancy surgery is best performed when a woman has finished having children and when they are old enough that she can have some recovery time after any surgical procedures.


What’s Included In Post Pregnancy Surgery?

Breast Enhancement


After pregnancy and breastfeeding it is common for a woman to lose some breast volume, with the breasts appearing to look smaller. With the use of breast implants the volume and more importantly the shape of the breast can adjusted. At the same time if the skin of the breast has been stretched and the nipple has gravitated lower on the breast, a breast lift can be added to adjust skin looseness and nipple height to give a more defined breast shape.

If breast changes are more severe following pregnancy, then a breast lift may be the best procedure for you. The breast lift will correct loose skin and improve firmness without increasing the size of the breast. Dropping of the nipples will also be corrected. If your breasts also need revolumising then we can offer the addition of fat grafting and/or augmentation mammoplasty (breast augmentation) combined with mastopexy (breast lift) surgery.

While many women find their breasts have become loose after pregnancy and breastfeeding, some women find that their breasts have grown in size. This is quite common in women with overly large breasts. They may have been putting up with the issues associated with large breasts prior to children – like back and neck pain, bra strap grooving and rashes in the breast fold. After children, many women decide it’s the right time for a reduction mammoplasty (breast reduction) performed as part of their post pregnancy surgery.

The reduction mammoplasty (breast reduction) will remove the excess breast and fat tissue and reshape and lift the breasts as well. There are a variety of surgical approaches to this procedure so your surgeon will work out the most appropriate for your needs.

Post Weight Loss


Pregnancy changes every body. The abdominal muscles and overlying skin are stretched by the growing baby leading to excess skin affected by stretch marks, with separation of the underlying abdominal muscles below. With twin pregnancies and multiple births these changes become more prominent, with mums unlikely to have complete recovery of their bodies after children. Many mothers find that after having children their abdomens have permanent changes – stretch marks, loss of abdominal muscle tone, flabby and excess skin, and fatty deposits.

An abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) procedure can remove loose skin and excess fat from the abdomen. The separated stomach muscle can also be tightened and rejoined to recreate a strong abdominal core muscle with the added benefit of helping lower back pain and stress incontinence. Your surgeon may also incorporate liposuction at the same time. It is one of the post pregnancy surgery procedures.

Many mums wish to remove stubborn abdominal fat that doesn’t go away after childbirth and want to know if liposuction alone can help them? The simple answer is if your underlying abdominal muscles are toned and have not separated, and your abdominal skin has been minimally affected by stretch marks then liposuction alone is the answer. Unfortunately, due to the effects of pregnancy this is not the case for many women, so we often combine liposuction with an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).

During pregnancy the labia enlarge in response to hormones and increased pelvic pressure of the growing baby. After the effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding have returned to normal, like other areas affected by pregnancy, the skin of the labia is often stretched.

As this is a very personal area of the body we want all of our prospective patients to know that there is a surgical procedure available which is a day only procedure with minimal down time and optimal results.
