The Mummy Makeover

Mummy Makeover Procedure

From the moment you find out that you’re pregnant, through watching your tummy grow, all the way to giving birth, becoming a mother can be one of the most wonderful and rewarding experiences in your life. However, after your baby is born, finding time to hit the gym can quite hard. What used to be beautiful changes can soon transform into fat deposits that refuse to disappear. Sagging breasts, excessive skin laxity and other unwanted results of pregnancy can be hard to get rid of, but a surgical correction can fix that in the blink of an eye. The Mummy Makeover treatment is designed to help every Mum feel as confident as never before about her body.

What is a Mummy Makeover?

Changes to women’s breasts, buttocks, abdomen and waist regions after giving birth are fairly common. Some women are able to regarding their pre-baby shape by hitting the gym and working out, as well as incorporating a healthy diet, while other struggle for months on end, often without succeeding.

That’s where the Mummy Makeover procedure comes in. It is designed to restore your body’s appearance to how it used to be before the pregnancy and childbirth. Usually, Mummy Makeover are performed as a single procedure, but they can also be staged when the situation calls for it. Techniques used for Mummy Makeover vary.

Common concerns women have after childbirth:

  • Deflated-looking or sagging breast
  • Loose abdomen skin
  • Diastis-recti (separation) of the abdominal muscles

Other issues women may experience include stubborn fatty deposits of the buttocks, thighs, waist and hips. Mummy Makeovers can restore both your pre-pregnancy form as well as your self-confidence. Treatments used within the Mummy Makeover package may include a tummy tuck, a breast lift, liposuction or even vaginal rejuvenation.
