Mummy Makeover

The birth of a child brings much joy. However, pregnancy can cause many changes to the appearance of the woman’s body. The rapidly changing shape of the body often leaves behind loose skin, excess fat and stretch marks which can be frustrating.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can leave the breasts deflated.

Combining a procedure on the breasts and the tummy under the same anaesthtic is a highly effective way to reverse some of these changes (in the right case). Please come in to discuss options and we will do our best to guide you and go over options.

Real Plastic Surgery - Mummy Makeover

What to expect on the day

The mummy makeover is used to help a woman restore her pre-pregnancy figure. The surgery is made up of a selection of body contouring procedures that aim to slim and tone the appearance of the body. Single procedures may include: arm lift, breast uplift (mastopexy), tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), thigh lift and buttock lift.

During your consultation we will discuss your concerns and tailor the mummy makeover procedure specifically for you and your desired end result. We often advise that you wait for several months after giving birth before undergoing this surgery, as your body will need time to take its natural post-pregnancy shape before we can accurately assess your concerns.

Showering after the mummy makeover.

A number of incisions may have been made on the body which will need a few days to heal before you can get them wet. Depending on the size of the cuts this may be in 3 days, or up to 1 week.

Follow up and aftercare.

In many cases you will be fully recovered within 8 weeks. During this time we will monitor your recovery very closely, arranging follow-up appointments at 1 week and 6 weeks after surgery, with a final review after 3 months. Aftercare advice will be given before you leave the clinic.

Frequently Asked Questions

A woman’s body doesn’t always return to its original appearance following pregnancy, especially after having more than 1 child / pregnancies. Stretched skin and weight gain is normal which can leave behind excess fat and loose skin on various areas of the body. The mummy makeover can help those who are unhappy with the overall appearance of the body following pregnancy, and restore a slimmer, more toned body profile.

Scarring will depend on the specific procedures that have been performed and where incisions have been made. Cuts in the skin are usually made in the most discreet places to try and avoid noticeable scarring, which will be discussed at the consultation. 

In many cases the results of the mummy makeover provide long term results. Factors such as: future weight gain / weight loss and further pregnancies which change the shape and size of the body may alter the final outcome.
