How To Rejuvenate Your Body After Pregnancy
Increasing numbers of women are seeking abdominoplasty procedures like the mummy tuck to get back into shape after pregnancy.
Pregnancy has a dramatic effect on the body, especially the abdomen. For many women the excess skin they’re left with can’t be helped by diet or exercise.
If skin doesn’t retract it can be left hanging and be a source of both emotional distress and physical discomfort. For women that wish to reduce this excess skin the mummy tuck may be the answer.
What Is The Mummy Tuck?
This is a form of abdominoplasty designed specifically to address post-pregnancy excess skin. Often completed as part of a mummy makeover (tummy tuck with breast rejuvenation and/or liposuction) it’s a long term solution and is classed as a surgical procedure.
What Does This Procedure Involve?
The mummy tuck can only be completed after a full consultation. Surgery takes place under anaesthetic and requires a hospital stay.
During surgery an incision is made in the abdomen and the skin that needs removing is cut away. Excess fat can also be removed.
The abdominal muscles below the skin can be tightened if necessary. This is often needed as the abdominal wall splits during pregnancy. Surgery can repair this.
The incision is then closed and you’ll return to ward to recover. You need to rest and allow the wound to heal safely. Your plastic surgeon in Manchester will give you all the recovery information you need.
How much does this surgery cost?
That depends entirely on who completes your mummy tuck abdominoplasty and where you have the procedure. Each case should be considered individually and a tailored procedure offered.
Do The Result Last A Long Time?
This is a surgical procedure so the results are long lasting. If you choose to undergo a mummy tuck but then have more children the results are unlikely to be retained.

Who Is A Mummy Tuck Suitable For?

Who Isn’t The Mummy Tuck Suitable For?
Woman who intend on having more children. Smokers are also advised to quit smoking if they wish to be considered for this abdominoplasty procedure.
