Mummy Makeover Surgery
A mummy makeover can be the perfect procedure to help restore your before-pregnancy body.
What is Mummy Makeover Surgery?
Having a child can be a wonderful time in your life, full of laughter and beautiful moments. However, it can also have an indisputably large impact on our bodies. The post-pregnancy body can be left sagging and drooping in areas that you find less than pleasing. That is why here at UK Aesthetic we offer a package which is collectively known as the mummy makeover.
The term mummy makeover is increasingly popular with many mothers. It is a term often related to both body and breast rejuvenation. Often following pregnancy and age, there is a change in skin quality and elasticity. The effects of pregnancy, combined with the ligaments of the breast and abdominal wall can alter the body significantly. Often, women will look to improve the contour of their breasts and body at the same time which is why mummy makeover surgery is a good option.
It puts together a selection of procedures to help rejuvenate and return a more youthful appearance to your body post-pregnancy.
Body Rejuvenation from Mummy Makeover Surgery
Mummy makeover surgery can consist of a range of procedures, but the most common include abdominoplasty, liposuction and breast augmentation. The aim of the abdominoplasty is to remove excess skin and fat to improve the silhouette of your body. Due to pregnancy damaging the abdominal wall, the procedure will almost certainly include tightening the abdominal wall. The layer of the abdominal wall above the muscles will be tightened which in turn brings the muscles together.
A mummy makeover can also remove the stretch marks in the lower abdomen whilst the upper stretch marks can be brought down to the bottom of the abdomen. These stretch marks are improved following the abdominoplasty. Hernias are a common result of pregnancy, these can also be addressed when undergoing abdominoplasty. Scars are often placed as low as possible, and with modern techniques, drains are not needed and patients can go home after 24 hours.
Breast Rejuvenation From A Mummy Makeover
When one opts for breast rejuvenation with mummy makeover surgery, it’s often due to feeling like they have lost both volume and shape. With some patients, the nipple-areola is at a high position on the breasts, which means breast augmentation will suffice. Where the areola has dropped, a mastopexy may be more suitable which lifts the breast up the chest wall. If a patient opts for this, they may also want augmentation for a fuller look. A mummy makeover can include a range of procedures for the breasts which we will go through.
What Procedures Does our Mummy Makeover Surgery in Manchester Include?
The mummy makeover here at UK Aesthetic can take many different forms. This is because each pregnancy is unique and its effects on the body are likewise. The after-effects of pregnancy will impact your body in a variety of ways, which can result in you feeling less than pleased with the aesthetic appearance of your upper body.
For that reason, the mummy makeover surgery at UK Aesthetic takes all of these different issues into account. These procedures can then be combined for the full mummy makeover experience. Popular options for the mummy makeover include:
After having a baby one of the most noticeable differences can be to the stomach area. The demand for this type of procedure continues to grow, as it allows women to reclaim the aesthetic appearance they had prior to having children. A mummy makeover that includes abdominoplasty surgery works to improve the appearance of the stomach area; it typically involves removing skin and fat, and then tightening the abdominal muscles.
The mummy makeover result is often a more toned and appealing stomach area. The level of surgery depends on the amount of sagging skin. Traditional abdominoplasty surgery can help to remove excess skin, but some cases may require a Fleur de Lis Abdominoplasty surgery. A surgery which is designed to remove larger amounts of skin than its traditional counterpart.
A common problem after pregnancy is the buildup of fat in the abdominal area. This can be very difficult and even sometimes impossible to remove through natural exercise. Many mothers find their bodies to return to normal after a few years, but this is not always the case. If you are interested in improving the aesthetic appearance of some persistent fat deposits, liposuction is a good option.
It can also be an ideal accompaniment to other mummy makeover procedures, in order to produce the body contour that you desire.
Following pregnancy, you may notice a significant loss in volume or size differences in your breasts. For that reason when undergoing mummy makeover surgery, breast augmentation may be an ideal surgery choice after pregnancy. Augmentation involves inserting an implant into the breast, allowing for growth in volume. It does not, however, alter the position of the breast.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Sagging or uneven breasts can be a common after-effect of pregnancy. Issues such as stretched areolas (the darker skin which surrounds the nipple) and drooping nipples can also arise. In such instances, a breast lift can be performed in order to reverse these changes and create a more youthful-looking breast shape. The mummy makeover involves removing excess skin and tightening the breast tissue.
A breast lift does not alter the size of the breasts. For women who want to improve both the shape and size of their breasts, then breast augmentation alongside a breast lift should be considered.

Mummy Makeover Surgery and Rehabilitation
There are some risks with anaesthesia when it comes to mummy makeover surgery, which is why we will discuss everything during your consultation. The surgery can be undergone in under 4 hours which minimises the risks involved and also removes the need for a catheter.
After the mummy makeover, it is important to mobilise at the early stages to decrease the risks involved with anaesthesia. A compression garment will be there when you wake up and this should be worn for 4-6 weeks as well as a sports bra. This is a form of extreme makeover, but having both procedures at the same time is more accepted and is better for the patient instead of having two different procedures at different times. Once you have had your mummy makeover surgery, you will have the contour you once had before children.
