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. But, 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 collectively is known as the mummy makeover.
It puts together a selection of procedures to help rejuvenate and return a more youthful appearance to your body post-pregnancy.
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 procedure here at UK Aesthetic takes all of these different issues into account. These procedures can then be combined for the full mummy makeover experience. Popular choices for the mummy makeover includes:
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. The abdominoplasty surgery works to improve the appearance of the stomach area; it typically involves removing skin and fat, then tightening the abdominal muscles.
The result is often a more toned and appealing stomach area. The level of surgery depends on the amount of sagging skin. A 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 return to normal after a few years, but this is not always the case. And so to improve 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, to produce the body contour that you desire.
Following pregnancy, you may notice a significant loss in volume or size differences to your breasts. For that reason, 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 surgery 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.
How Long After Pregnancy Can I get a Mummy Makeover?
After birth, you should wait a minimum of 6 months in order to have the mummy makeover procedure. This gives your body time to recover naturally following childbirth.
If you have delivered via c-section, then it is advised you wait at least 6 to 12 months before seeking a mummy makeover. As you may need additional time in order to recover from both childbirth and the associated surgery.
How Much Does a Mummy Makeover Cost?
The cost of a mummy makeover is wholly dependent on the procedures which you require. You may only require a breast lift, for example, or may wish to pair it with both liposuction and abdominoplasty. In which case, you will be given an individual cost breakdown during your initial consultation. This will cover hospital, surgeon and anaesthetic fees for your mummy makeover in whatever form it takes.
