Atlas Esthetic | Mommy Makeover
Becoming a mother is a remarkable part of life for every woman.
Motherhood is something to look forward to, to eagerly await, and something that women treat in a special way.
Unfortunately, pregnancy and lactation usually take their toll on a woman’s body. When diet and exercise fail, and non-surgical treatments do not give satisfactory results, women tend to feel quite insecure and unhappy in their own bodies.
Mommy Makeover will help you feel more attractive, confident and comfortable in your own body. It will allow you to enjoy the joys of motherhood and your renewed appreciation of your own beauty.
What is Mommy Makeover?
After childbirth, some women can easily return their body to its pre-pregnancy state, but for most women, this can become an impossible task.
The changes in the body that occur during pregnancy, or with aging, include weight gain, stretch marks, loss of muscle tone, sagging breasts, and many others.
Mommy Makeover is a combination of cosmetic procedures specifically designed to reverse these effects.
Treatments that can be included:
- Liposuction – to remove and additionally “sculpt” the area under the fat tissue
- Tummy tuck to tighten the stomach muscles and shape the waist
- Lifting sagging breasts, giving them younger look
- Breast volume adjustment
- Combination of breast lift and implants
- Thigh reduction
- Upper arm skin tightening
- Buttock lift and tightening
- Buttock augmentation and waist sculpting
- Vaginal rejuvenation, restoration of vaginal tightness and shape

With Mommy Makeover treatment you can enhance your natural curves, restore the appearance, size, and shape of your breasts.

- How do I prepare for the procedure?
You will be given detailed instructions on how to best prepare for surgery. Patients should refrain from smoking and take any anti-inflammatory drugs and/or anticoagulant medications or supplements (e.g. aspirin, vitamin E supplements, garlic) for at least 2 weeks prior to surgery. They can increase the risk and lead to complications. An important part of recovery preparation includes:
- Organize your business and schedule, so that you can completely relax and rest after the operation.
- Arrange for transportation to and from the clinic after the operation (if you do not decide to stay in the stationary part of Atlas Hospital) – patients will not be allowed to go home alone upon discharge.
- What should I expect during the operation?
Mommy makeover procedure can vary in technique and duration, depending on which individual procedures are performed. Our surgeon will explain each procedure in detail during the consultation process, and once more before the operation to ensure that you fully understand what the operation involves.
- Will the Mommy Makeover treatment leave scars?
A certain level of scarring after surgery is inevitable. Our surgeons are experts in creating a minimum surface scars and will make every effort to ensure that your wound is healing properly. Wherever possible, incisions are carefully placed in areas that are either well hidden on your body or can be easily covered with clothing. Most women are so satisfied with the outcome of their surgery, that the scars represent no problem.
Changes in the abdomen
The changes that occur in a woman’s body during pregnancy are often most noticeable in the stomach area.
All women experience normal hormonal changes during pregnancy, that mainly help relax the muscles of the abdominal wall and adjust it to the size of the baby.
Peritoneum in some women will return to the state prior to pregnancy, but in most cases, it remains free, which leads to sagging skin, stretch marks or dilatation of stomach muscles. Sometimes all these discomforts can occur at the same moment.
Besides that, many women undergo Caesarean section procedure or have had previous abdominal surgery, both of which can leave wide, unattractive and painful scars.
During the period of breastfeeding, many mothers are concerned that their breasts will lose their youthful appearance.
However, changes in the breasts do happen in pregnancy, regardless of whether the mother chooses to breastfeed her child or not.
When a female body is preparing for the production of milk, the mammary glands extend and suppress the fatty tissue of the breast. After childbirth, in most cases, these glands return to a resting state, leaving empty space with not enough tissue to fill the breast.
Accordingly, the breasts after breastfeeding has less volume, a tendency of sagging downwards, and in many cases stretch marks appear.
Body shape changes
Although most women are able to lose weight gained during pregnancy.
A few fat deposits always remain on the hips, back and thighs, which will not disappear even despite regular exercise and rigorously controlled diets.
Many hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy can result in permanent deformation of the female body, such as these local fat deposits.
