Non-Surgical Mommy Makeovers - Part 5

While everyone expects pregnancy to bring an expanding waistline, many are surprised by other body changes such as spider veins, hair loss and post-Caesarean Section scars. Many symptoms eventually fade over time but some changes may be permanent. Do consult your doctor about the range of effective medical aesthetic treatments available to help you improve these conditions.
 
Hair Loss After Childbirth

Many new moms are surprised to find themselves shedding more hair than usual in the first few months after giving birth. During pregnancy, elevated levels of oestrogen causes more hair to stay on the scalp by prolonging it's growing stage, thus resulting in thicker, more luxuriant tresses. After giving birth, estrogen levels take a tumble and increased hair loss occurs as the hairs in the growing stage enter a resting stage and shed.

Kim Kardhasian was photographed with her hair in a high bun, showing visible hair loss, which the reality star attempts to cover up with weaves and hair extensions. It was reported that her rapid weight loss have accelerated the hair loss after childbirth.

What Can I do About it ?

The good news is that hair loss after childbirth usually resolves spontaneously within a year. Meanwhile, the use of volumizing shampoos and conditioners or a change of hairstyle that makes hair appear fuller brings temporary relief. For those who choose to take a proactive approach, there is topical Minoxydil, which is an FDA-approved medication to reduce hair loss and Hair Restoration Programme, which consist of a series non-surgical treatments to replace vitamins and nutrients
directly to the scalp.

Spider Veins or Varicose Veins

Spider veins and varicose veins may first develop or get worse during pregnancy. A combination of factors contribute to  veins by applying more pressure on the circulatory system. Higher levels of progesterone may cause dilatation of blood vessel wall. An increase in circulating blood volume together with a ballooning uterus also puts pressure on the leg veins.

What Can I do About it ?

Spider veins or varicose veins tend to improve after giving birth, particularly if you didn't have any before pregnancy. And if they don't get better, there are a variety of ways to treat them. Patients are encouraged to wear support stockings, exercise regularly, avoid prolonged sitting or standing and elevate their legs whenever possible. Sclerotherapy and laser treatments are non-invasive procedures to correct spider veins or varicose veins.

Post Caesarean Section Scars

Undergoing a Caesarean section (C-section), whether planned or not will lead to scar formation on the lower belly. While some people scar minimally, with nothing more than a thin line, others may develop dark coloured, lumpy scar tissues extending beyond the wound.

What Can I do About it ?

Does your C-section scar bothers you ? Depending on the type of scars, a variety of different treatments may help make them less visible, such as silicone gel or sheets, pressure dressings, corticosteroid injections and laser treatments. Very often, a combination of treatments can be used to improve the cosmetic outcome of post C-section scars.
