Mummy Makeover

It’s no surprise women’s bodies change after pregnancy. What may surprise you though is that more and women are turning to plastic surgery to plastic surgery and a variety or combination of procedures after giving birth to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies?

Rather than just being one cosmetic procedure, a Mummy Make-Over is a reference to a collection of procedures that are performed together to restore a woman back to a woman’s pre-baby shape after pregnancy. It is important to note that, as the Mummy Makeover is a very personalized procedure and tailor-made for each individual based upon our Plastic Surgeons recommendations and the needs of each client to ensure the best result.

The areas that are targeted in this make-over are the breasts and the tummy area and designed to reverse some of the “damage” from child-bearing where the skin and the muscle wall of the abdomen have been stretched and excess fat is put on sometimes unevenly. In pregnancy, this area can be stretched so much that over time, the never completely returns to the way it was before the pregnancy no matter how much dieting and exercising you do it just doesn’t bounce back! This also can include stretch marks sagging breasts, uneven pockets of fat that just won’t budge.

Carefully selected procedures or a range of procedures will help restore the body back to the pre-birth baby and help with you feel more confident with your body, help your clothes fit better, and with your self-confidence.
Anyone of the breast procedures suitable to the individual needs of the patient will be able to enhance the shape and contour of the breasts from a variety of reasons such as breastfeeding, fluctuating weight, skin elasticity, genetics, and aging, causing the breasts to sag (ptosis) to varying degrees and losing volume. These include breast augmentation with breast implants, a breast lift with or without implants, a breast reduction and/lift or a breast revision with new implants.

A Tummy Tuck is ideal for those wanting to remove loose or sagging skin or fat tissues following weight loss or pregnancy and the correct procedure as defined by a plastic surgeon based upon medical information and photos will work to reduce excess fat and improve the shape of the stomach and firm the abdomen.

Incisions are made to the lower abdomen to remove excess skin, while liposuction involved using a suction pump device to vacuum away fatty deposits and removing excess fat and removing loose skin from around the abdomen.

This could include an Abdominoplasty or Mini Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck.
