Which surgical procedures are included in a mummy makeover?
In recent years we have seen a surge in popularity for the procedures collectively known as the mummy makeover. This term refers to a selection of body contouring procedures that are designed to improve the body after pregnancy or extreme weight loss.
The procedures which are included in the term mummy makeover usually include some kind of tummy tuck surgery, otherwise known as an abdominoplasty, and a breast rejuvenation procedure. Other procedures that may be included may be a thigh lift or liposuction.
A mummy makeover essentially includes two all more body contouring or body shaping treatments that are designed to lift and firm the skin. Most women who choose this type of cosmetic surgery are seeking to rejuvenate their body post pregnancy.
Why choose a mummy makeover?
Usually, someone would choose a mummy makeover because they are unhappy with the appearance of the abdomen and breasts. The point of this type of cosmetic surgery is to rejuvenate the midsection and the breasts in order to improve the appearance of the body and improve the self-esteem of the woman.
Who is a mummy makeover suitable for?
A mummy makeover is suitable for women who have had children and don’t wish to go through pregnancy again. If you are still considering having more children it is advised that you refrain from undergoing cosmetic surgery procedures like those listed above until you have finished your family.
Are the results long lasting?
The results of a mummy makeover are long-lasting. Because the procedures included in this type of cosmetic rejuvenation our surgical, the results will last for many years. Of course, this does not prevent the ageing process in any way, and breasts that have been uplifted will begin to sag again in future due to ageing. However, most patients agree that the results of breast rejuvenation surgery or abdominoplasty are worth the investment.
Will I need further surgery?
In most cases, patients are happy with the outcome of their various surgeries. However, in some cases, further surgery may be needed.
Also if you undergo a procedure like a breast uplift in your 20s or early 30s you may well need to undergo another procedure later on in life if you are unhappy with how are your breasts look as the ageing process kicks in.
Can I choose which procedures I have?
Your plastic surgeon will advise you on which procedures are most likely to provide you with the best result. It is then up to you to go away and decide whether or not a mummy makeover is the best choice for you.
