Post pregnancy plastic surgery

Post pregnancy plastic surgery


At Quaba Plastic Surgery, we offer a number of post pregnancy cosmetic procedures.

Plastic surgery advice after pregnancy is commonly requested. Many women often want to know what procedures are available and when the optimum timing for surgery might be.

Pregnancy is a natural healthy process that many women aspire to. It is associated with profound changes to the body both during the pregnancy and immediately afterwards.

Many women never fully recover their pre pregnancy shape, especially if they have had several pregnancies. For most women this is not a problem and they lead a full and healthy lifestyle.

Some women do have concerns about their bodies after pregnancy and breast feeding. The most common requests for post pregnancy plastic surgery are for ‘tummy tucks’, breast enlargement or lift, and liposuction.

Certain procedures, such as abdominoplasty and breast reduction/ uplift surgery are best performed once a mother has completed her family. This gives the best long term results. A subsequent pregnancy following these procedures will not cause any undue harm to mother or child but may ‘undo’ the effects of the previous surgery.

Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly requested post pregnancy procedures. Many women experience loss of breast tissue following pregnancy, especially if they have breast fed their child. Loss of breast volume may also be associated with increased droopiness (ptosis) of the breasts. Mild breast ptosis can usually be treated with breast implants alone. More severe ptosis with loss of breast volume requires a combined uplift and implant procedure (augmentation mastopexy).

Aesthetic surgery following pregnancy is ideally performed at least 6-12 months after pregnancy or breast feeding. Procedures such as abdominoplasty and breast reduction have recovery periods of up to 6 weeks and it is important to bear this in mind when there are young children to look after.

Please refer to the relevant sections on abdominoplasty, liposuction, breast augmentation, mastopexy and breast reduction.
