Mummy makeover is our terminology to express body contouring procedures after pregnancy and having children. These procedures will reshape your tummy and breast, which are most commonly affected.
Mummy makeover procedures are considered to improve your self-esteem and have an impact on your social personal relationships. It will also have an influence on your work and professional life.
The mummy makeover does not have to take place straight after pregnancy. It can be done soon after the birth of your children or years later. It may be something you consider much later rather than during the postnatal stages.
Mummy makeover procedures may include:
- Breast Lift or and Breast Augmentation
- Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
- Liposuction or Lipectomy
- Botox and Fillers
– All above procedures are individually and fully described in our website.
BMC plastic surgeons will be happy to help you regain, refine and reshape your body. You will also enjoy a more refreshed, young and youthful look.
Things to Remember
The results of Mummy Makeover are long lasting, especially if the patient follows a healthy lifestyle. It is best that you opt for the procedure once you have completed your family. Becoming pregnant again will cause the abdomen to sag again.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who Is a candidate for a Mummy Makeover?
Ideal candidates for mummy makeover are women whose breast and abdomen are changed as a result of pregnancy and childbirth. They should have a desire for restorative surgery to bring their body back to its pre-pregnancy state.
How long does the procedure take?
This is dependant on what procedures the mummy wants. All our services are tailored around the patient. So depending on the operative plan created for you, the procedure can take between 3 to 6 hours to complete.
What are the risks of Mommy Makeover surgery?
The risks are similar to most major operations. They include wound healing, bleeding, infection, and seroma (fluid collection) formation. However, using BMC means you are in the best hands. We work hard to reduce the risks associated with any of the surgical procedures you choose.
Will I have scars?
- Yes, it is not possible to perform these operations without making incisions and leaving scars.
- With careful operative technique and attention to scar management post-operatively, it is our goal to have the finest, smallest scar as possible.
- Where possible we carefully choose our incision points so they are unnoticeable or can be easily hidden.
What is the recovery period?
As with all surgery, recovery time is variable and is dependent on the patient and the surgery chosen. Whether you choose breast, abdomen or both surgeries, recovery time will vary. From our experience, recovery can range from one to four weeks in most cases.
