Husband forks out £13,500 for wife’s confidence boosting ‘mummy makeover’

Jamie-Louise Fitton had put on weight after a back condition left her bedridden and in chronic back pain – but she said her husband Adrian has been her rock and has helped her get through it

A woman has revealed how her husband forked out £13,500 on a ‘mummy makeover’ making her feel confident with her figure for the first time.

Jamie-Louise Fitton, 33, had put on weight after a back condition left her bedridden and in chronic back pain.

But after recovering from an operation, she got a personal trainer and managed to lose four stone.

Her weight loss left her with loose skin, but the mum-of-two from Stockport, Manchester, underwent a tummy tuck and a breast augmentation – paid for by her husband Adrian Fitton, 34.

She said web developer Adrian was her rock, helped her recover and agreed to foot the bill for her weight loss surgery as he could see how ‘miserable’ she was.

Jamie, who went under the knife in June 2018, said: “Since the surgery, I feel like a new woman.

“This is the first time I’ve felt confident with my figure and I’m finally comfortable taking my clothes off.”

In February 2013, weighing 13 stone, doctors diagnosed her with mechanical back failure and chronic pain.

Jamie said: “They said it was incurable and that I could do nothing but take more pain medication.

“I had steroids injected into my spine, codeine, anti-inflammatory drugs and patches.

“I was on 22 painkillers a day and took morphine every night.

“But I was miserable and could barely walk up the stairs without being in agony.

“And being unable to exercise meant that I soon weighed 14 stone and was a size 16.”

She said: “I spoke to a surgeon who said that the surgery would also remove any excess skin caused by my weight loss, I was delighted.

“I decided to have a breast augmentation at the same time, increasing my cup size from an A cup to a D cup.

“But the surgery cost £13.5K which I couldn’t afford.

“Thankfully my husband agreed to foot the bill and took out a credit card to pay for the operation.

“He could see how miserable I was.”

And in June 2018, she underwent her mummy makeover with Dr Gary Ross at BMI Alexandra Hospital, Cheadle.

Jamie said: “I knew from the moment I met Gary he was the surgeon for me.

“Gary informed me of what the surgery would entail, the recovery and if it would help my back at all.

“Through every step Gary and his team were always on hand to help and give advice.

“It was a five-hour operation but I went back to work straight away.

“The operation cured my back pain and it’s completely changed my life.

“I think Gary is a miracle worker and I can’t believe the results he’s achieved, he’s honestly changed my life.

How Much Tissue Is Removed in a Lower Body Lift?

A lower body lift (also known as a belt lipectomy) is the removal of tissue; typically requested and performed on successful weight loss patients. The tissue is removed all of the way around the body.

Every patient who loses weight does so differently and as such the distribution of skin after the fact will also be different. On a case by case basis, patients need to prioritise which area they wish to address in particular. The higher up the removal of excess tissue then the higher the position of scars will be. For example, when the priority is to remove excess tissue above the waist, then the scar will be quite highly positioned also.

In the event of issues such as a saddlebag deformity – where excess skin hangs noticeably off of the buttocks – the positioning of the scar is somewhat different. The scar is lower and as the excision of the skin occurred more around the sides of the buttocks.

The end position of scars will be determined by the tension on the wounds and the extent on the excision. An adjustment will also need to be made to ensure the wound is properly closed. This can again affect the end result of the scar. Minimal tension is aimed for, but there is a limit to what can be achieved and removed in one surgery.

Results Of A Lower Body Lift

The surgery markings are always very individual and so the patients need to prioritise the areas they wish to address, maximising the amount of skin to removed. Ultimately, the aim is obviously to achieve the result that the patient hopes for and so this prioritisation is vital.

Three popular procedures using fat transfer surgery

The surprising procedures using fat transfer surgery available now

The popularity of fat transfer surgery has continued to rise, with more men and women then ever seeking information about this type of procedure. It’s actually incredibly versatile and can offer multiple benefits to patients of all ages.

Below you’ll find 3 procedures using fat transfer that we have seen an increase in, specifically from female patients.

Breast rejuvenation

Recently it was revealed that there has been some link between some silicone breast implants and cancer.  As such, we have seen a rise in women seeking other types of breast rejuvenation procedures.

Fat transfer can be a useful tool in providing breast volume. Rather than using synthetic implants the body’s own fat is used to increase volume in one or both breasts.

As well as boosting volume, breast rejuvenation treatments using fat can help to kick start collagen renewal and improve the quality of the tissue and skin around the area.

Buttock augmentation

Fat transfer for buttock augmentation isn’t a particularly new procedure, but it is one that’s increasing in popularity year on year. During this procedure fat is taken from an area such as the abdomen and replaced in the buttocks to create volume.

This procedure is popular with women looking to boost their curves and create natural looking volume. A large part of it’s popularity has comes from social media and celebrity culture.

This procedure is not suitable for everyone and a full consultation is needed in order to ascertain suitability.

Facial rejuvenation

Another novel way to use the body’s own fat is via facial rejuvenation. There are multiple ways to use fat to improve the signs of ageing in the face.

For the upper face, fat transfer can improve the appearance of the skin and provide volume. For the mid face it’s great for cheek augmentation.

Some patients choose to combine fat transfer treatments with non surgical facial rejuvenation treatments for a total aesthetic makeover. There’s more information on these types of treatments in terms of anti ageing via the treatment pages.

Gary Ross on fat transfer treatments

“This is a useful tool for patients looking to improve volume to the face and body. We have lots of information on the treatment pages and our team is on hand if you wish to ask any questions or book a consultation.”

Can Upper Blepharoplasty Benefit Men?

First and foremost, blepharoplasty is a type of plastic surgery which corrects defects or deformities to the eyelid. It is also used to change the aesthetic appearance of the overall eye region.

Typically, this is a procedure which is much more commonly requested by female patients. The cases which see men request blepharoplasty surgery often come as a result of an abnormally large amount of excess skin overhanging the eye, affecting vision. This excess of skin can also make the patient feel unnaturally tired.

As you can see in the above examples, the brow often sits lower and the heaviness of the eyelid is quite excessive. This almost pressures the lower lids downwards as a result. Upper blepharoplasty surgery then reduces this heaviness, though it does not elevate the brow in doing so, however, this reduction often makes the patient feel much more comfortable. Frequently, vision is improved, especially in cases where the skin has been left to hang over the eye.

From this, we can see that men can and do benefit from upper lid blepharoplasty surgery though the reasons for the surgery may be slightly different. It is important to run through the different options for blepharoplasty and brow lifts prior to surgery or combination. Non-surgical solutions such as Botox can also be beneficial for this issue.

Where Is A Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck Scar Placed During Abdominoplasty Surgery?

Where a fleur de lis tummy tuck scar is placed is one query that can be raised during a fleur des lis abdominoplasty surgery. This is because they can either be in the form of a horizontal or vertical scar. A fleur de lis abdominoplasty surgery removes more excess skin than a standard abdominoplasty surgery. Therefore a fleur des lis tummy tuck scar would be in the form of a vertical line that is placed up the abdomen region towards the chest.

A fleur de lis abdominoplasty surgery is typically performed to remove excess skin that is formed in the abdomen region. The results of the actual surgery can vary as it is determined on a case by case basis. For example, some patients may have had surgery in the past on the same region. In this case the visibility or results of the fleur de lis tummy tuck scars can appear different compared to a patient that is having it performed for the first time. It can also be dependent on how much excess skin the patient has where it requires to be removed from.

The Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck Scar Differs For Patients

In the video, there are several case studies provided showing before and after photos for different patients. As you’ll see, where the fleur des lis tummy tuck scars are placed on the patient differ due to their personal circumstance.

As always, to determine whether a fleur de lis abdominoplasty surgery is right for you can be discussed during a consultation.
