Mummy makeovers became a huge trend a few years ago and today they are more popular than ever. Combining multiple procedures, they aim to provide a drastic transformation helping to boost confidence and get you the look you want.

Not sure what it is, or what it involves? Read on to find out everything you need to know.

What is a mummy makeover?

A mummy makeover involves undergoing multiple procedures to various areas of the body, often at the same time. The goal is to achieve the body you had before your pregnancy.

Celebrities were a driving factor behind the initial trend, with many women feeling the pressure to slim down after giving birth. These days, a lot of women undergo these procedures because they simply want to get back their confidence.

Who is a good candidate for a mummy makeover?

Good candidates for a mummy makeover are those who:

  • Are in good physical and psychological state
  • Are at their ideal body weight
  • Have realistic expectations of the surgeries
  • Are mothers who have experienced changes in their body contour and shape

Certainly, you should also not be planning on having any more pregnancies anytime soon. While it isn’t dangerous to fall pregnant again after the procedure, it will impact your results.

What areas are typically worked on?

A mummy makeover usually involves work on the abdomen, breasts and thighs. The procedures most carried out are a breast lift, a tummy tuck, and liposuction.

Breast lifts – A breast lift helps to correct sagging breasts. After giving birth and breastfeeding, the breasts are often left saggy and lacking volume. A lift helps to make them perkier, and can be combined with breast augmentation to add volume if needed also.

Tummy tuck – A tummy tuck is frequently the most effective way to get back your pre-pregnancy body, providing dramatic results. It removes spare skin and tissue from the lower abdomen, tightens the abdominal muscles which are often stretched during pregnancy, producing a flat stomach and narrower waist without tissue excess.

Liposuction – One of the biggest complaints women have after giving birth is stubborn pockets of fat. Even with diet and exercise, it can be difficult to get back your pre-baby body. But liposuction is very effective to eliminate stubborn areas of fat, helping to contour the body and regain your confidence. Common areas treated include the abdomen and waist (often combined with an abdominoplasty) and thighs.

These are just three of the most popular surgeries included in a mummy makeover. However, they can be tailored to your specific needs. Book a consultation with Mr Paul Tulley today to determine which procedures would give you the best mummy makeover results.
