Mommy Makeover Package

In the past decade, medical tourism had greatly increased in the Philippines. Many tourists mostly coming from America and Europe have gone to the Philippines for cosmetic makeovers. What makes the Philippines an attraction for medical tourism are the safe and affordable surgical procedures done by expert, board certified cosmetic plastic surgeons. Among these procedures is the well-known Mommy Makeover Package for moms who want to insure a safe and affordable surgery. This  includes tummy tuck, breast lift, breast augmentation, breast reduction, buttocks augmentation, liposuction, fat graft and face lift.  ptg02318068

This makeover package is designed to eliminate the post pregnancy effects. Some of these post pregnancy effects can be seen on the tummy which is caused mostly by the stretching of the uterus due to the growing baby. The uterus is being press on the muscle wall of the abdomen, then abdominal muscles are pulled apart and separate as the fascia elongates. When this happened, nothing can bring them back together again other than a surgery. Exercise is not a good option either because there is no muscle in your midline to exercise.

After the baby was delivered, the abdominal skin collapses, leaving a hanging and loose skin. A muscle bulge can also be apparent in the lower abdomen since the muscles have already been stretched. Effects on the breasts are also eminent. When the baby is getting ready to be born, the breast started to grow. After the delivery, breast feeding causes the breast to sag due to repeated stretching. Once you will no longer breast feed the baby, the breasts decrease in size and more often they will become smaller compared to their size before breast feeding.

While the first pregnancy has these effects, repeated pregnancies do the foremost harm. Often, moms who have had very little difficulty in their first and second pregnancy, notice that the third child causes an incredible abdominal stretching and the loss of breast tissues. Additional occurrence of fat, which could be present but less obvious, become more apparent. The common combination of these problems are abdominal stretching of muscle and skin, the gaining more fat, the loss of breast tissue and drooping, brought us to develop the Mommy Makeover Package. Modern surgical technologies permit us to safely package these procedures.

Makeover for Abdomen

Generally, it requires a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) for the treatment of abdomen. The tummy tuck procedure allows tightens the skin of both the lower and upper part of abdomen. It also tightens the abdominal muscle from the ribcage to the pubic bone. If you still have good skin elasticity but there is an excess fat in your abdomen, liposuction or fat grafting maybe recommended for you.  Liposuction is the lasting removal of fat while fat grafting is the removal of excess fat in the abdomen and it will be implanted to the other parts of the body where it is needed. Commonly, it is implanted in the face to improve facial features.

Makeover for the Breasts

Depending on the amount of drooping, the loss of tissue and the loss of volume and fullness of the breast, there are many options for your breasts to improve. Mild drooping of the breasts can be treated with breast augmentation or breast implant. If the nipples are not too saggy and the patient wants to increase her breasts size, then breast implants is the best option. Breast Lift on the other hand, is done without assignment of breast implants. It lifts the nipples back up again along with contractions of the skin below the breasts.

Candidates for Mommy Makeover Package

You are a candidate for Mommy Makeover Package if childbirth and pregnancy have taken over your breasts, abdomen and facial features. You may decide to have a face lift with or without tummy tuck or to have breast lift with liposuction or fat graft. You can also have them all in this one package. Its overall goal is to improve the appearance of many mommies and eliminate the effect of pregnancies and childbirth.

Motivation for Surgery

Most men who find themselves back in dating again after a split or a divorce with their partner often want to re-establish their confidence and youthful appearance by undergoing cosmetic surgery. Men in this situation often seek Abdominal Etching or the Six Pack Surgery, especially if their body is not in shape especially their stomach. They are usually quite straightforward in their expressions as to why they want to have the surgery and confidence building and security in personal relationships are the reasons they gave in having the surgery.

Abdominal Etching or the Six-Pack Surgery

Perhaps you are one of many men who strive for those ever-desirable six-pack and eight-pack abs these days. Yet, tireless sit-ups and stomach crunches often don’t get the job done, no matter how disciplined you are in your workout. The truth is, it is very difficult to get rid of fat around the mid section, especially if you are not genetically blessed in the mid region to begin with. However, there is a great solution many men have turned to for more defined abs and that athletic six pack look.

Abdominal etching or the six-pack surgery is a plastic surgery procedure that contour and reshape your abdominal fat pad to provide you with a flatter stomach. This procedure removes some amount of fat around your natural muscular contours and sculpts or shapes your abdomen to create a more athletic contour. Those who have a pronounced muscular structure already benefit the most from this procedure. Ideal candidates should follow a proper exercise and diet program to maintain your appearance after the procedure has been completed.


Specific benefits may include:

•    More defined muscles in the abdomen
•    Less abdominal fat and thinner midsection
•    Safer surgery than some other options
•    Great option for those with small amounts of abdominal fat
•    Minimized downtime and quick procedure
•    Less scarring
•    Faster  healing than other body contouring procedures

Your surgeon will mark your belly with lines to guide his surgical incisions before he will put you under local or general anesthesia. He will then sculpt your abdominal muscles using an instrument called a cannula by removing your excess fat along the lines drawn before the operation. The scars will be difficult to see for each incision will only be 1 to 2 mm in length. Then your surgeon will advise you to wear compression clothing after the surgery. Most likely you will return home within a few hours on the same day of the procedure.
Swelling, bruising and sometimes pain may be present but these are manageable with the proper care and medicine. You can shower within 48 hours but you will need to wear the compression clothing for 3 to 6 weeks. Avoid putting any pressure on your abdominal area and lifting heavy weights for approximately 3 weeks. The full result of the procedure may take up to 6 months to be seen.

Possible Risk

Just like any surgery where anesthesia is give, you will always run the risks of side effects and complications. Reduce these risks by walking gently and moving around as often as you can and as soon as you can and by following your surgeon’s instructions carefully. Those specific risks include:

•    Reaction to the anesthetic.
•    Temporary loss of sensitivity on abdominal skin is common.
•    Excessive scarring of the skin
•    Post operative infections that occur usually in the first 4-6 weeks.

To reduce the occurrence of these risks, this procedure should be performed in an outpatient surgery center where your surgeon practices. It is very important to go through a personal consultation with your surgeon to determine if abdominal etching is the right procedure for you to achieve the best results.
It is important to only consider those board-certified plastic surgeons who may be experts in abdominal plastic surgery and may have specific experience with abdominal etching.
