The size, volume and weight of the breasts increase, the skin stretches and expands in the abdomen, the subcutaneous fatty tissue thickens and the abdominal muscles become looser. Along with the abdomen, there is thickening in the waist area and enlargement in the hip area. The formation of blemishes on the skin is increasing. Most of these changes go away after the pregnancy process, but some permanent deformations may occur on the body.

Although maternity surgery is typically performed in combination in a single session, it can also be divided into sessions if needed, taking into account the mother’s health status.
Achieving the ‘Golden Ratio’ in Body Shaping with Maternity Surgery
Kiss. Dr. Bingol; “The golden ratio, defined aesthetically for the female body, is the ratio of the waist to the hips; one and a half. Our aim is to try to achieve this golden ratio as a result of surgery as much as possible, as the anatomical structures of the mother allow. For this purpose, the fat in the waist area is removed with the liposuction method, the waist is thinned and the waist fold is created. Abdominoplasty is often performed for the abdominal region. With this surgery, the relaxed muscles are tightened in the middle and even, the excess skin is removed and the abdomen is flattened. According to the need, the hip area is also shaped with liposuction and fat injection, and golden ratio aesthetics is aimed.

Usually loose, excess skin. It can cause a dull appearance that is drooping and has lost its upper pole fullness. In order to solve this situation, excess and sagging skin is removed with mastopexy operation and the breast tissue is recovered; steeper and fuller; aesthetically a younger breast image is provided.
