Childbirth is an event that leads to various physical transformations in women’s bodies. Particularly noticeable changes can be seen in the abdomen, arms, legs and breasts. The sagging in these areas, the increase in body fat percentage and the evolution of breast tissue cause aesthetic concerns in many women. This has led to the birth of the concept of “maternity aesthetics”.
Mommy makeover is not a fixed procedure, but can include a series of procedures that are shaped depending on the needs and expectations of the individual. In other words, since the changes experienced by each woman and her body structure are different, these aesthetic interventions are also determined in a personalized manner. In summary, this aesthetic approach, designed to deal with the physical changes after childbirth, aims to help women feel better about themselves.
