When they are done together, the procedure is performed under general anaesthesia, and hospital stay is advised up to two days. The total recovery may take up to a month.

During pregnancy, there are many hormonal changes in a woman’s body. The most prominent changes are skin ageing, skin pigmentation, stretch marks, dark circle under the eyes, etc. These skin treatments are mostly non-surgical, and laser treatments, and are very effective in glamorising your appearance.
For women with heavy breasts due to breastfeeding, a breast liposuction or a breast lift surgery may provide great results in getting back your breasts in shape. Breasts lose firmness and shape. The upper part of the breast above nipple goes flatter, and lower part sags down often touching the chest wall. Nipple and areola enlarge, and breast goes soft after stopping breastfeeding. The overall size of Breast may or may not change much, but the loss of shape and flabbiness makes it harder to find a well fitting bra.
Changes in abdomen depend on overall weight gain, the size of the baby and if there was a twin pregnancy. Abdominal muscles separate in the midline and stretch overall. Excessive stretch can cause inner organs to bulge out in the form of rectus diastasis and umbilical hernia. After child birth abdomen shrinks partially but often not completely. Therefore there is loose skin, stretch marks, resistant fat and overall bulge of abdomen and widening of waistline.
Normal vaginal delivery stretches out the vagina causing vagina to become loose. Vaginal Tightening is a small surgery that tightens the muscles in the vaginal region which usually become loose after childbirth.
Who Can Benefit?
The changes after pregnancy commonly happen in breast, abdomen and genital area. Some women have more changes, and some have less. Usually, women who did not gain excessive weight during pregnancy and who are fit and active perform better than overweight moms. For moms who have achieved ideal weight after pregnancy does not need much surgery and get a better result with less recovery time. It is common for breasts to get larger during pregnancy but after stopping breastfeeding the breast shrink back to original size and additionally, they become softer and saggy. Abdominal muscles get stretched during pregnancy, and it happens more with large weight babies or twin pregnancies. Due to stretch, a gap comes between the muscles and skin starts sagging like a flap, once the woman loses her pregnancy weight. The genital area gets saggy, and the vagina may feel loose to some.
