What is involved in a Mummy Makeover?

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.

Rejuvenating the body after pregnancy with cosmetic surgery

The mummy makeover is a term used to describe a combination of procedures aimed at rejuvenating and reshaping a woman’s body. Patients may seek mummy makeover surgery as a result of weight loss or, most commonly, the changes left behind after pregnancy.

The after effects of pregnancy on the body can leave patients feeling unhappy with their aesthetic appearance. Most often, patients complain their breasts appear sagging or lacking in volume, and the skin on the abdomen may appear lax, having lost its natural elasticity.

Gary Ross offers body contouring surgery in Manchester which combines surgical procedures including a breast uplift surgery (mastopexy with or without breast implants) and some form of tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) procedure to remove excess skin and tighten muscles below the surface. Tummy tuck surgery can include mini or full versions of this procedure.

One benefit of undergoing this type of surgery is that two or more body contouring procedures are combined during one visit to hospital. Instead of undergoing multiple surgeries, and therefore having to recover from each one separately, this combination treatment aims to combine more procedures in just one hospital visit.

In the long run this means less recovery time, although it can be a higher risk choice for patients. You’ll be made aware of the risks as well as the rewards of mummy makeover surgery during your consultation with Mr Ross.

Whilst patients are left with scarring, most agree this is a reasonable trade off to be rid of the excess unwanted skin and sagging breasts. The procedures are invasive and a mummy makeover should not be undertaken lightly; patients will need to take time away from work to recover and the downtime must be weighed up as part of the decision making process.

Consultations and more information

Booking a consultation for body contouring surgery, including mummy makeover surgery, is vital. It’s important patients understand what each procedure entails from start to finish, as well as the recovery process. Understanding the benefits and limitations of this form of cosmetic surgery is important.

The consultation is an ideal time to ask questions you may have about tummy tuck surgery, abdominoplasty, breast uplift surgery and mastopexy. A bespoke treatment plan is always made for every patient, because when it comes to a mummy makeover the one-size-fits-all approach just doesn’t work. You’re an individual and all cosmetic procedures should be tailored to the needs of the specific person.

Mr Ross helps women from Manchester and local areas including Cheshire, Altrincham, Wirral, Alderley Edge, Wilmslow, Nantwich, Sale, Prestwich and Whitefield who are looking to rejuvenate their body after pregnancy or extreme weight loss. He recently spoke to Manchester Evening News about the mummy makeover surgery he provides – you can read the article here.

A mummy makeover Manchester can include several body contouring procedures including abdominoplasty; a surgical procedure know more commonly as tummy tuck surgery designed to reduce excess skin and fat as well as repair damaged or separated muscles where necessary.

Tummy tuck surgery as part of a mummy makeover

– There are several variations of abdominoplasty including ‘mini tummy tuck’ surgery options, so you can be sure Mr Ross will tailor a plan to directly tackle specific issues.

– Abdominoplasty forms part of a mummy makeover surgery because it helps to reduce excess skin, remove stretch marks and improve the overall contours of the mid section.

– A scar is inevitable, however, most prospective patients agree this is preferable to sagging, hanging skin that may occur due to pregnancy or significant weight loss.

Breast rejuvenation surgery as part of a mummy makeover

– Which form of breast surgery a patient requires depends on the specific concerns they present with. As part of mummy makeover surgery, mastopexy (breast uplift surgery) and breast augmentation may be offered.

– Breast uplift surgery is the most common procedure as part of mummy makeover surgery because it’s specifically designed to lift the breasts up, removing excess skin if needed. The nipple is usually repositioned and breast implants can be utilised during the same breast rejuvenation surgery procedure.

– Alternative options to breast uplift surgery include breast reduction and breast augmentation; this usually includes implants to improve volume which may have been lost due to breast feeding, weight loss or ageing.

Other body contouring procedures that are considered as part of mummy makeover surgery can include thigh lift surgery, brachioplasty (an arm lift to remove excess skin or reduce bingo wings) and full body lifting.
