Once all of the excitement of having a baby eventually dies down and your attention begins to turn back to yourself, you might have found that your body isn’t what it once was. Pregnancy and birth can have lasting effects on the body, and many women find that their tummies, breasts and other areas just don’t look as good as they used to.
Stretched out skin around the stomach can lead to saggy belly areas, and pregnancy followed by breastfeeding can leave breasts drooping and looking less perky than they once were. For many new mothers, this change in appearance can be damaging to their confidence, especially around a time where activities in the bedroom may be beginning to bloom once more with their partner.
That’s why so many women opt for cosmetic procedures known as the ‘mummy makeover’, which is a term used to describe common post-pregnancy procedures such as tummy tucks, liposuction and breast lifts. Mummy makeovers are becoming more and more common now that many women are looking for a convenient and effective way to get back to their pre-pregnancy bodies. As plastic surgery is also on the rise as something that more and more women turn to, mummy makeover procedures are taking place more often.
If you’ve been considering one or more of these procedures, it’s always a good idea to contact a reputable plastic surgeon and discuss what preparation you may need to undergo. For procedures like liposuction, generally the preparation includes using diet and exercise to get as close to your ideal body as you can then using the surgery to remove those last stubborn areas of fat. For others, you can contact Dr Anh Nguyen on (08) 6555 3480 to learn more.

This video demonstrates how laser resurfacing techniques can be used to reduce the appearance of sun spots, also known as liver spots, on the skin. Sun spots are dark spots and patches that appear on the skin, often after periods of prolonged exposure to the sun. People who spend more time outdoors in the sun are more likely to end up with sun spots appearing on their skin, and the appearance can be quite unsightly at best and cancerous at worst.
In this video, the ways that suns spots can be reduced is demonstrated and an interview is conducted in which a patient discusses how the treatment worked for her. Results can usually be noted after even just the first treatment, though it usually takes at least three before the results become very noticeable.
If you are interested in learning more about how to reduce sun spots, call a reputable female plastic surgeon in Perth like Dr Anh Nguyen on (08) 6555 3480.

If you’ve caught a glimpse of yourself in the mirror recently and noticed that you’re looking older than you’d like to, it can be hard to come to terms with. Countless people claim to look older than they feel, and if you’re one of them then the chances are you’re looking for ways to rejuvenate your appearance and become a bit happier with how you are ageing.
There are plenty of things you can do to look younger – it’s all down to working out what it is that makes you look old in the first place.
Many of the areas people worry about are on or near the face. A neck that sags, eyes with bags or a face that's etched with wrinkles. They're problems that occur for many people, but they're not irreversible.
If you’ve been trying out more makeup in the hopes of covering wrinkles and blemishes, try the opposite: too much makeup adds years to the face, whereas well-applied foundation, blusher and concealer bring out the highlights.
Other problems, such as cellulite, can also have an ageing look, but this too is treatable.
Unfortunately, some other issues aren’t as easy to correct. Smokers, even ex-smokers who quit a long time ago, can find that their skin ages faster than non-smokers, and sun worshippers can expect the same result. However, there’s always a solution – and in this case, skin rejuvenation from a female plastic surgeon in Perth can do the trick. Contact Dr Anh Nguyen on (08) 6555 3480.

Cellulite is one of the most irritating and unsightly aspects of the body for many women, and its appearance is one that most people want to reduce as much as possible. That instantly recognisable ‘orange peel’ appearance, which shows up the most on the backs of the thighs, is one of the key areas of body fat that is, unfortunately, rather hard to reduce.
Looking up ways to reduce cellulite online will bring back countless results that advise you to accept that it may not be possible to get rid of all of your cellulite, but it certainly is possible to reduce it dramatically. Combined with a healthy diet and exercise, there are ways to reduce the appearance of cellulite both surgically and non-surgically. If you’ve tried just about everything else, you may be interested in learning about how to use plastic surgery to eradicate the appearance of cellulite.
One of the most common procedures used to get rid of unsightly cellulite is liposuction. Liposuction involves a suction tube being inserted into problem areas via small incisions and sucking fat tissue directly out. This is a highly effective technique that is commonly used on the thighs, flanks and tummy. It’s a key player when it comes to cellulite reduction and, if you’re interested in learning more about how it can help you deal with your specific problem areas in particular, you may want to arrange a consultation.

Breast augmentation is changing, and for women who are interested in getting larger breasts but don’t want to undergo surgery in order to do so, new trends in breast augmentation are sure to appeal. Previously, the most common way to get bigger breasts was to use plastic surgery to insert implants into the breasts to increase size. Often, the effect was to create breasts that had a more rounded appearance that didn’t sit as naturally as before and, for significant implants, the fact that surgery had been undergone was quite apparent.
Now, many plastic surgeons are recommending using the body’s natural store of fat to enhance the appearance of breasts – they are simply taking it from one area and moving it to another. This has the added bonus of reducing fat in areas where it might not be as desired, such as the stomach or thighs, and putting it to good use in the breasts instead.
The combination of liposuction to remove unwanted fat and injections to place the fat into the breasts creates a dramatic effect, where contours are improved around the tummy and thighs as well as the breasts. Although this technique is not recommended if the patient wishes for a significant increase in breast size, it is ideal for a cup or two increase.
If you’d like to learn more about this type of breast enlargement in Perth, call Dr Anh Nguyen on (08) 6555 3480 to speak with an experienced female plastic surgeon who can answer your questions and address your concerns.
