Mummy Makeover: Everything You Need To Know About Post-Pregnancy Surgery (2019)

Mummy Makeover: Everything You Need To Know About Post-Pregnancy Surgery (2019)

Having children is a life-changing blessing for many. But many women often find it difficult to get back to their pre-pregnancy bodies with diet and exercise alone.

For this reason, plastic surgeons offer the “mummy makeover”. This is a collective term for a combination of elective surgical procedures. Plastic surgeons tailor each mummy makeover to each woman’s needs that aim to help women to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies and confidence.

A mummy makeover is usually performed in response to post-pregnancy changes in the breasts, abdomen, and waist that exercise and diet alone cannot reverse. These days, the scope of a mummy makeover has expanded to include the arms, thighs, genitalia, buttocks, and face.

A mummy makeover is normally performed as a single-stage procedure, which can make it cost-effective (as certain fees are only paid once) and convenient (because you only need to plan for a single recovery).

Getting Constipation Despite A Regular Diet: A Gastroenterologist Explains

Getting Constipation Despite A Regular Diet: A Gastroenterologist Explains

Constipation is such a common condition that to many people, it is a passing and temporary occurrence not to be worried about.

We know that diet is a major cause of constipation. By eating foods that aggravate the digestive system and compromise the digestion process, constipation is typically a symptom that follows.

However, many healthy eaters who pay attention to their daily diets have also experienced constipation.

A DoctorxDentist reader had constipation for two weeks in a row, despite taking a daily meal which includes green tea, low glycemic index bread, brown rice, and an assortment of fruits and vegetables to complement her lean food regimen.

Gastroenterologist Dr Quan Wai Leong discussed some possible causes of constipation people can have, even with a healthy diet. Here's what he had to share.
