Profound changes occur to the body both during pregnancy and immediately afterwards.

Many mothers never fully recover their pre-pregnancy body 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 breastfeeding. The most common requests for post-pregnancy cosmetic surgery are for ‘tummy tucks’, breast enlargement or lift, and liposuction.

When should I time my surgery?

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

Cosmetic surgery following pregnancy is ideally performed at least 6-12 months after childbirth or breastfeeding. Procedures such as tummy tuck and breast reduction have recovery periods of up to 6 weeks, and it is essential to bear this in mind when there are young children to look after.

Loss of breast volume

Breast augmentation is the most commonly requested post pregnancy procedure. Many women experience loss of breast tissue following pregnancy, especially if they have breastfed their child. Lack of volume may result in droopiness (ptosis) of the breasts. Mild sagging can usually be treated with breast implants alone. More severe droopiness may require an uplift combined with an implant (augmentation mastopexy).

Tummy tuck – Great tummy tuck experience

My experience with Mr Omar Quaba was excellent. I had previously been to see another surgeon and decided to go with Mr Quaba instead which was definitely the correct decision. He came recommended to me and I would recommend him to anyone considering having a tummy tuck. He put me at ease at all times during my consultations and especially before my operation. I am very happy with my results.

Tummy tuck and arm lift -I had an extended tummy tuck and double…

I had an extended tummy tuck and double brachioplasty with Mr Awf Quaba in January 2016. The surgery went well, as did my recovery and almost 8 months on, I am delighted with the result! The scars are fading well and both procedures have made a huge difference to both how I look and feel. I believe Mr Quaba is one of, if not the best aesthetic plastic surgeons in the UK.

Tummy tuck and Lipo

I had wanted tummy tuck for a time, after 2 pregnancies, had left a large volume of excess skin.
Mr Omar Quaba was excellent from my initial consultation, he was approachable and I felt reassured, all the way to aftercare. I am delighted with the results. I would definitely recommend this surgeon.

Mommy makeover – I wish I had done it years ago!

I had to travel over 300 miles to have a consultation and again to have the surgery so I did lots of research and initially visited 3 different hospitals before deciding on Mr Omar Quaba at the Murrayfield Spire Hospital in Edinburgh. Mr Quaba immediately made me feel at ease and explained the procedure fully (abdominoplasty) and all associated risks and possible complications. I went back home with all the information required to make an informed decision about that procedure.
Mr Quaba agreed to have another (telephone) consultation at my request to discuss an additional procedure (breast reduction & lift) and decided to have the 2 operations at the same time.

As soon as I arrived at the hospital, I knew I was in good hands and Mr Quaba made me feel relaxed and confident. My surgery went very well and I was very pleasantly surprised that it was not nearly as painful as I had expected and I was delighted to have no drains, nor did I have to wear compression garments.
After 2 very comfortable nights in the hospital with wonderful care, I was discharged to stay with friends until my checkup a week later. I was given phone numbers to call had I any worries or problems (which I didn’t) and then 6 months later I met Mr Quaba again for a follow-up appointment.
It was a very positive experience and if I felt I required any further procedures, Mr Quaba would be my 1st choice!

Tummy tuck – Clean, easy to park and excellent reception and nursing staff

Life changing! I’m 62. I had 4 Caesarean sections and a road map of stretch marks. For 25 years I had kept my stomach hidden but in the last few years, I found the flap over my scars becoming increasingly infected, smelly, irritable. I was convinced to have surgery was vanity and I had a husband who really did not mind. I was washing the area twice a day (frying it with a hairdryer) and meditated cream could not get on top of the infections. Finally, my daughter told me to get an option on it. I took the decision it would get worse and worse. I am now 3 months since the surgery. I feel healthier, I feel happier. I am going to be fitter. This was not for vanity or weight (I will never be thin) but why I didn’t have it done years ago I have no idea.

Drainless tummy tuck – I was left with loose skin following the birth of…

I was left with loose skin following the birth of my eldest daughter. It caused me a lot of anxiety and confidence issues. I began researching the tummy tuck procedure a year later. I had three consultations at different practices none of which I was overconfident in. I then had my second daughter which put things on hold. I visited Mr quaba for the first time in mid-2014. It was £120 for a consultation. I felt instantly confident with him. He showed me before and after photos of previous patients and drew diagrams. He knew what he as talking about. I was advised to get full tummy tuck with muscle repair and liposuction to achieve a more flattering shape. I felt confident to book the procedure with him and was meant to get it done in September 2014 but due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to cancel. I then visited him two more times before I finally had the procedure done in June 2015.

On the morning of the operation, I was extremely nervous but the staff were very very good. The next thing I knew I was back from surgery. I do remember a tightening/bruising pain but nothing unbearable. I was up and about at the toilet the same evening. There were no drains so nothing to accidentally tamper with. I went back for my 7 day check to get the surgical dressing off and cleaned. I was very happy with the result. I was given special tape to apply to the area to help with healing. A year on and my scar has healed very well. I will unfortunately always have stretch marks but that was part of pregnancy. Everyone’s result is individual.

I would highly recommend mr quaba.
