Aesthetics in Puerperal

As every woman who has had children knows, the “puerperal period” is a period that gives happiness, but at the same time wears out the mother a lot. Mothers during the puerperal period can be psychologically and physically worn out because they are going through a difficult period. “Is plastic surgery and application performed during puerperal period?” the question is one of the most frequently asked questions by mothers.

Hormonal and physical changes that occur during pregnancy in women regress during puerperal period. In mothers during the breastfeeding period, new hormonal changes occur in order for this function to be maintained. Both hormonal changes and the addition of a new individual to their lives also bring about many psychological changes in mothers.

Emotional and Physical Changes Should Be Expected to Subside

In addition to the happiness of having a new baby, the responsibility brought by it, the fatigue caused by the intense attention that needs to be shown, physically and psychologically strain mothers. During this period, mothers may need some aesthetic interventions to feel good. However, it would be more appropriate to wait for the emotional and physical changes to subside for aesthetic intervention.

Filling Can Be Done During Puerperal Period

Mothers can have all aesthetic facial interventions and surgery if they have stopped breastfeeding their babies, if they feel emotionally ready and if they do not have any health problems. If we look at plastic surgeries and interventions, filling applications to be performed with hyaluronic acid on the face may vary.

Hyaluronic acid is an acid in the form of a liquid that is important for eye and skin health. It is an important substance due to the prevention of skin aging and the closure of skin defects. Hyaluronic acid can also be made during breastfeeding, as it remains only in the area made to the face and is a substance that is already present in the human body.

Insomnia and Fatigue Can Cause Collapses in Custody

The image created by collapses and darkening in custody due to fatigue and insomnia during puerperal period leads to a tired expression in women and makes them unhappy.

The light filling to be made in custody can make this image better and make women feel better during these difficult periods. Again, during this period, a more beautiful appearance can be given with the application of filler in the deep grooves on the side of the nose, which we call the cheekbone, lip, chin lazonobial region. The hyaluronic acid to be applied will not cause any harm to you and your baby, as it stays in the places where it is applied and does not pass into the blood.

You May Need Time for Lip Filler

If you have gained a lot of weight during pregnancy and you think that these pounds have changed your face a lot, it may be a better decision to lose weight in 3-6 months and wait for your face to get its old shape for cheek and cheek fillers. In addition, mothers undergo hormonal changes after the pregnancy processes. Due to these hormonal changes, mothers’ lips may look fuller than they are.

Therefore, it would be right to wait for a while to get lip filler again. If there is collapse and discoloration in your detentions before pregnancy, or if they have just formed along with the puerperal period, they can have light filling in detention.

I wish you all a healthy, happy and peaceful day.
