Getting back in shape with body contouring surgery after pregnancy
There are many reason someone may consider undergoing body contouring surgery. By far one of the most common for women is to regain their pre pregnancy figure. We call this a mummy makeover.
A mummy makeover includes two or more body contouring surgery procedures. Usually this will include an abdominoplasty of some kind and a breast rejuvenation procedure.
What is a mummy makeover?
The mummy makeover is a term used specifically for women as in most cases the combination of tummy tuck surgery and a breast rejuvenation are due to the changes pregnancy makes on the body. It is common to be left with sagging breasts after breast feeding or excess, loose skin on the abdomen.
Why choose a mummy makeover?
It’s designed to recontour the body and improve self confidence. The idea of choosing body contouring surgery means these women are able to feel better in their body’s again, and see their shape return to more like it was previously.
Who is suitable for this type of cosmetic surgery?
Body contouring surgery designed to lift the breasts and reshape the tummy area is suitable for women who are unhappy with their appearance after having children.
It is invasive surgery and there are risks associated with it, so it’s important to be aware of that. Patients also need to have realistic expectations of what the body rejuvenating procedures can offer.
Who is not suitable for mummy makeover surgery?
Women who have unrealistic goals or expectation are not suitable for this type of surgery. You must also be at a reasonable weight and should only be undergoing body contouring surgery for your personal reasons. It is never advised or encouraged to have cosmetic procedures for anyone else.
