menopause makeover

Menopause doesn’t just mark the end of your menstrual cycle; it can also trigger a lot of changes within the body. As well as those dreaded mood swings, hormonal fluctuations can lead to physical changes such as weight gain, altered body shape, and changes in skin and tissue elasticity. These changes can affect both your appearance and self-esteem.

Fortunately, cosmetic surgery offers several procedures that can help address these issues, contributing to what many are calling a ‘Menopause Makeover’.

Here, discover the different procedures that are carried out in a Menopause Makeover and how they can help restore your looks and your confidence.

Tummy Tuck – for your midsection

During menopause, hormonal changes can lead to weight gain, particularly around the abdomen. The redistribution of fat, combined with a natural loss of skin elasticity, can result in a sagging midsection that’s hard to tackle with diet and exercise alone.

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall. This procedure can significantly flatten and shape the midsection, offering a more youthful and contoured silhouette.

Breast Lift – providing a youthful lift

The hormonal shifts of menopause can affect the volume and elasticity of breast tissue, leading to sagging. A breast lift, or mastopexy, raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour.

The nipple and areola can also be repositioned or resized to further improve the appearance of the breasts.

Liposuction – for a more sculpted look

Menopause can make it more difficult to maintain a stable weight. You may notice increased fat deposits in areas like the hips, thighs, and abdomen, despite maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Liposuction sculpts the body by removing unwanted fat, reshaping these areas into a more desired contour. It’s not a weight-loss solution but rather a way to address fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.

The result is a more sculpted appearance, highlighting the natural curves and leaner physique that many women seek post-menopause.

Fat Transfer – replacing lost volume

The hormonal changes that come with the menopause may cause you to experience a loss of facial volume, leading to a more aged appearance. This volume loss can make the face look tired or drawn.

Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, removes fat from one part of the body via liposuction. It is then purified, and injected into another area that requires added volume such as the face or the breasts.

This procedure not only adds volume, but also can improve skin texture and tone due to the stem cells present in the fat. You’re left with a more youthful, refreshed appearance, softening of wrinkles, and restored volume.

The transition through menopause doesn’t have to mean settling for a body that doesn’t feel like your own. With a menopause makeover it’s possible to address the physical changes and emerge feeling rejuvenated.
