Pregnancy and childbirth can affect women in many ways. For most women, pregnancy affects two areas of their body the most – the tummy and breasts.
If your body has altered shape and you no longer feel happy about the way you look, you may decide that a mummy makeover is the answer for you.
So, what does a mummy makeover entail?
A mummy makeover consists of a tummy tuck to improve the contour of the stomach and waist along with breast implants and/or a breast uplift treatment.
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty can improve the shape of your abdomen by removing excess fat and tightening the abdominal muscles.
Breast enlargement surgery involves placing breast implants between the breast tissue and chest muscle or behind the chest muscle depending on the patient’s desired outcome. Breast uplift surgery, also known as a Mastopexy is a popular procedure that reshapes the breasts to create a more uplifted, youthful appearance.
Is a mummy makeover right for me?
It can take many months for the body to settle down after pregnancy, so surgery should be considered only when a complete recovery has been made.
Within a year of childbirth, it should be possible to assess your permanent new shape, enabling you to make decisions about whether a mummy makeover is right for you. The first step is to attend your free initial consultation to discuss the changes you would like to make and to determine which procedure, or combination of procedures, is right for you.
If you are still hoping to have more children in the future, we would suggest waiting until after that before undergoing a mummy makeover.
