One of the most amazing experiences in a women’s life is carrying and giving birth to new life. Embracing the pregnancy journey can be exciting and joyous.
Your body, however, will go through many changes which can seriously take its toll on your shape and you wonder if you will ever get back to normal post-pregnancy. Some women may feel dissatisfied with how their bodies look after pregnancy. Luckily, there are some options out there for you, which include the popular mummy makeover. This surgery can do wonders for you, not only getting you back to your pre-pregnancy body but also raise your self-esteem and confidence.
A mummy makeover is a combination of cosmetic procedures that restore your before-pregnancy appearance. Plastic surgery and non-surgical procedures after pregnancy are geared towards the improvement of post-pregnancy changes to a woman’s body. Many mothers do not have the luxury of long recovery periods after surgery, so treatment plans are designed so that you can get back to family life and normal activities as quickly as possible.
When discussing a mummy makeover, the abdomen is normally one of the first things women bring up. As your abdomen gets bigger with your growing baby taking up lots of room, the covering skin will stretch and you may end up with stretch marks. Excess skin is normal post pregnancy and unfortunately, it generally doesn’t retract beautifully as some of us would hope. So how can a mummy makeover help your abdomen? Liposuction will help remove the excess fat and contour. Some women may also require an abdominoplasty to remove excess lower abdominal skin. An abdominoplasty will also be performed to repair the abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck is a safe and effective cosmetic surgery to reshape the abdomen area to achieve a flatter, slimmer, more confident new you.
During pregnancy your breasts enlarge and develop to produce milk. Unfortunately, the skin laxity in your breast does not have the ability to go back to its original size and for the majority of women, you will end up with a saggy breast shape. Plastic surgery techniques have evolved quite considerably and a mummy makeover can make the changes needed without complications or risks. With a breast uplift your breasts can be lifted back to their original appearance and a silicone gel implant can fill and shape your breast beautifully providing the desired natural look.
Lastly, the flanks, back and legs. Remember this is why it is called a makeover, you are pretty much made new! Some women want to adjust the shape evenly so our surgeon would concentrate on the torso and flanks. Fat tissue can also be sculpted on the back of your leg and our surgeon is also able to perform a thigh lift. If you want to do a complete rejuvenation then a Brachioplasty (arm lift) will complete the look. So if you would like to restore your look and feel a mummy makeover is the perfect option for you, then we can offer you a complimentary consultation with our Lead surgeon Mr Amir Nakhdjevani. Our dedicated Patient Coordinators will then guide you through the procedure, booking process and will be there with you every step of the way.
