Mummy makeover overview

What is a mummy makeover?

As a woman, pregnancy and becoming a mother can be a very special time of your life. It can be amazing to watch how the female body changes to accommodate and deliver life. After the birth of your baby however, it can sometimes be hard to reverse these changes using diet and exercise. This mummy makeover overview will tell you all about what the procedure is and what it can achieve.
A mummy makeover describes a combination of breast and body surgeries. They aim to help create a body shape that you will be happy with! This mix of surgeries can include:

  • Abdominoplasty (Tummy tuck).
  • Breast uplift.
  • Liposuction.
  • Breast augmentation.
  • Breast reduction.
  • Arm lift.
  • Thigh lift.
  • Buttock augmentation.
  • Vaginal rejuvenation.

Our surgeons can perform many of these procedures in one go. This can help achieve faster results over a shorter recovery time than if you were to have each procedure at a separate time.  If you are considering a mummy makeover, you can take your time to decide which mix of surgeries interest you. Then, when you meet your BAAPS/BAPRAS surgeon, they will discuss how many they can perform for you at one time.

What can a mummy makeover achieve?

Overall, a mummy makeover aims to achieve a more visually pleasing body shape. You may be finding it hard to lose your ‘baby weight’ and the extra skin that came with having a baby. In addition, your breasts may also have changed in a way you are not happy with. This procedure aims to reverse the changes having a baby has had on your body by:

  • Removing excess tummy skin and fat. 
  • Tightening the tummy wall muscles.
  • Improving the appearance of unwanted scars or stretch marks.
  • Recreating a more desirable breast appearance.
  • Reducing or restoring breast volume.
  • Removing excess fat and skin from the arms and thighs.
  • Enhancing the volume and shape of the bottom.
  • Rejuvenating the appearance and tone of the vaginal area.

The mums who have this procedure describe a major increase in self-confidence. Therefore, the mummy makeover can have positive effects on you both physically and mentally!

Who are BAAPS and BAPRAS?

Firstly, The British Association of Aesthetic and Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) and The British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) are the two main plastic surgery societies in the UK. When you are choosing who will perform your surgery, you want to choose a highly skilled surgeon with plenty of experience. BAAPS and BAPRAS ensure their surgeons are up to date with all the latest methods and skills by providing regular training programmes for their members.
All of our surgeons here at Medbelle are members of either BAAPS or BAPRAS. This allows us to ensure that you are in the best hands possible for your surgery. Despite this, it is vital that you pick a surgeon who you are completely comfortable with.
