What is involved in mummy makeover surgery?

Take steps to transform your body with mummy makeover surgery

The combination of cosmetic procedures involved in mummy makeover surgery is designed to transform the body after pregnancy or weight loss.

Although abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery) and breast rejuvenation surgery in some form, such as breast uplift surgery, are the most commonly combined body contouring procedures, others may be involved if it’s agreed they will benefit the patient.

All mummy makeover surgery treatment plans are designed to be bespoke, and are tailored to suit the needs and goals of the patient. Booking a consultation with Mr Ross is the best way to determine the suitability of this kind of body contouring surgery.

Mr Ross is a specialist in body contouring and breast rejuvenation surgery and helps patients from across the region, including areas such as Cheshire, Altrincham, Wirral, Alderley Edge, Wilmslow, Nantwich, Sale, Prestwich and Whitefield, to feel confident in their appearance again. 

Abdominoplasty as part of undergoing mummy makeover surgery

After pregnancy one of the main issues that may prove difficult to solve with diet and exercise is the abdomen area. Post-pregnancy women can be left with a variety of concerns pertaining to the mid section, including lax, sagging skin and stretch marks, as well as internal issues such as damaged muscles.

As part of mummy makeover surgery treatment plans an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery as most patients know it, is the most common procedure under this umbrella term. There are variants of abdominoplasty (including full and mini tummy tuck surgery) and which form of this body contouring is offered is down to the individual patient.

During abdominoplasty as part of a body reshaping overhaul excess skin can removed/lifted, and the contours of the tummy area can be redefined. A smoother silhouette is just one of the benefits of tummy tuck surgery, but some patients can also lose stretch marks.

For some patients the issue is purely aesthetic, whereas for others the muscles affected by pregnancy may need tightening, and thanks to the versatility of this procedure much can be offered in terms of restoring the mid section.

Breast rejuvenation surgery as part of a mummy makeover

The breasts can be affected by pregnancy and/or breastfeeding, and for many women undergoing breast surgery in combination with tummy tuck surgery can prove to be life changing. Breast rejuvenation surgery may include breast augmentation, mastopexy (breast uplift surgery) or fat transfer, with the goal of improving volume and/or lifting the breasts.

When patients visit seeking breast rejuvenation as part of mummy makeover surgery (or because of extreme weight loss) the main issues are empty breasts lacking in volume, sagging skin and drooping of the tissue; this in turn often makes the breasts sit lower on the body.

Mastopexy and breast uplift surgery can help to reposition the breasts, lifting them to a more youthful position. This can include a breast implant if desired, although often an implant will not be enough to change the projection of the breast.

Additional mummy makeover Manchester surgery procedures

For some women additional body reshaping procedures will need to be undertaken during surgery. These can include liposuction, fat transfer or body lifting procedures – such as brachioplasty (arm lift surgery) and thigh lift surgery – to ensure a good overall result. Any of these can be added to tummy tuck surgery or breast rejuvenation surgery/breast uplift surgery providing a combination approach to your care.

Autologous fat transfer can help to restore natural volume to the breasts (although it can’t replace breast uplift surgery/mastopexy) as part of a wider mummy makeover, and liposuction can help to reduce stubborn fat from areas of the body affected by weight loss and pregnancy. Booking a consultation is the best way to discover which body contouring procedures are likely to give you the best results.
