“Mummy Makeover” surgery is a name given to a variety of cosmetic surgeries that can be done to tighten, firm, and rejuvenate parts of the body that change as a result of pregnancy and childbirth. A tummy tuck, breast augmentation/uplift, liposuction, arm, buttock or thigh lift are all popular elements of a mummy makeover, but the results are customisable to the patient’s wants and needs.
A mummy makeover describes a combination of breast and body surgeries. They aim to help create a body shape that the patient will be happy with. This mix of surgeries can include:
Surgeons can perform many of these procedures in one go. This can help achieve faster results over a shorter recovery time than if patients were to have each procedure at a separate time.
Pregnancy comes with a range of normal changes to the body. A mummy makeover aims to counteract these changes to create a more aesthetically pleasing body shape and contour after childbearing.
Although it’s one of the most common types of cosmetic makeovers, Sydney surgeons can confirm that mummy makeovers aren’t restricted to new mums. Some families prefer to wait until their children are toddling or school age before committing to the surgery. The beauty of the mummy makeover, as opposed to other cosmetic surgeries, is that it can revamp her body.
While the mummy makeover seems like a convenient shortcut to a beautiful body, there are other considerations. Like all forms of cosmetic surgery, your curves will improve drastically, but your weight might not. While liposuction and lifts do reduce the volume of fat in your body, the focus is on reshaping. Your surgeon can strategically take out sections of fat to give you better contours, but it will not result in significant weight loss.
So if you’re planning to get rid of post-baby fat begin with a healthy regime of diet and exercise so that you can slim down. Once you’re down to a healthy weight, a surgeon can help you put the bang back in your body. It’s a good idea to wait 3 or 6 months after you have stopped breastfeeding before proceeding with a mummy makeover. If possible, hold off until you have had all your children, since future pregnancies will adjust your shape once more.
There are various benefits of mummy makeover surgery including improvements in both health and appearance. These are some of the common benefits of the mummy makeover.
Dr. Rizk advocates the National Law and Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) guidelines that any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
