Are You Considering a Mummy Makeover?
You’d be hard-pressed to find anything as miraculous as a mother’s body, which can grow and deliver life, only to continue to nourish a newly born infant through the first few months of life. The body goes through many changes during pregnancy and breastfeeding, often changing into a permanent new shape once the baby is born.
While many women view the changes in their bodies as beautiful reminders of what their bodies are capable of, some women feel uncomfortable with their new appearance and opt for plastic surgery to restore their pre-pregnancy body.
This is so common that there’s a name for it: a mummy makeover. Mummy makeover procedures target post-pregnancy trouble areas like the:
These areas can change quite dramatically after pregnancy and childbirth, even with a controlled diet and exercise program. If you’ve already taken care of post-pregnancy weight loss but are still unhappy with your appearance, mummy makeover surgery might be worth considering.
New mothers have plenty on their plate to begin with, so if you’re comfortable with your post-pregnancy body, cosmetic surgery might not be something that interests you. However, if a lift here and a tuck there is all you need to feel like your confident pre-pregnancy self again, a mummy makeover might be just the thing.
Getting Back Your Pre-Pregnancy Body Has Never Been Easier
Many new mothers get to work with diet and exercise soon after the baby’s born, hoping to get back to their pre-pregnancy weight as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, even after losing weight, many women discover that pregnancy has changed their bodies in ways that diet and exercise can’t fix.
Suddenly, there’s a band of loose skin around the belly that was never there before. Once-perky breasts are now deflated and sagging or have grown to an uncomfortable size. Even the private area can look different after childbirth, making some women self-conscious during intimate activities.
Fortunately, experienced plastic surgeons can take care of these issues with a mummy makeover that includes some or all of the following:
Mummy makeovers are specific to the person. Maybe you’d like a tummy tuck and labiaplasty but are happy with the shape of your breasts, for example. Or perhaps you figure that be because you’re having plastic surgery anyway, you may as well take care of everything at once.
Our experienced surgeons will walk you through all your options and come up with the mummy makeover package that’s right for you. Our goal is for you to walk away loving your new mummy body, not pushing procedures on you that you don’t need.
How much does a Mummy Makeover cost?
The phrase “mummy makeover” is a general term for a group of procedures that plastic surgeons often perform for new mothers rather than a set package. These makeovers focus on areas that change during pregnancy and breastfeeding, so a mummy makeover usually ends up being some combination of the procedures listed above.
Some women will want everything on the list while others may only want one or two—it varies from person to person. Therefore, it makes sense that the surgeon’s fee will likewise differ.
If you’re concerned about the cost of your mummy makeover, the best thing to do is to contact a skilled plastic surgeon to set up a consultation. During the consultation, you and the surgeon will go over in detail which areas are troubling you and what procedures you’d like.
Once you have a clear picture of the procedures you’re interested in getting, your surgeon will be able to give you a clear idea of the cost. You might also want to seek a second opinion to make sure you’re getting the optimum procedures for your specific set of needs at a fair price.
How long does it take to recover from the Mummy Makeover procedure(s)?
If you’re considering getting a mummy makeover, you’re undoubtedly wondering how long it will be before you can resume normal activities again. After all, if you have a young child to care for, you don’t want to be out of commission longer than necessary.
Unfortunately, it isn’t easy to give a generalised timeline for recovery. Recovery time is different for every person, depending on several factors:
- The number and extent of the procedures
- Your age
- Your general health
As mentioned earlier, every mummy makeover will look a little different. Some women choose to get extensive plastic surgery, others the bare minimum. The more work you have done, the longer your recovery time will be.
Each person’s body responds a little differently to surgery, so even if two women got the same procedures, one might heal and resume normal activities more quickly than the other one.
Your surgeon will give you an idea of healing time based on the mummy makeover options you select. He or she will also schedule post-operative appointments to make sure you’re healing properly.
What results can a Mummy Makeover provide?
If you’re unhappy with your post-pregnancy body, a mummy makeover might be just the thing to help you regain confidence in your appearance. Many women simply want to return to their pre-pregnancy appearance but end up in the best shape of their life after a few simple procedures.
So, what can a mummy makeover do for you?
- Breast augmentation: Pregnancy and breastfeeding can sometimes leave breasts looking deflated. Breast implants can replace the fullness of pre-pregnancy breasts.
- Breast reduction: Some women find that their breasts are significantly larger after pregnancy and want to reduce them to their former cup size.
- Breast lift: The changes that breasts go through during pregnancy and breastfeeding can take their toll, leaving once-perky breasts sagging. A breast lift is an easy way to get them back up to their former positions.
- Labiaplasty: Some women find that childbirth changes the appearance of their labia and want a way to fix the discomfort that this can cause.
- Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck): The skin around the belly area stretches out quite a bit during pregnancy to accommodate the growing uterus. This can sometimes leave baggy skin in the tummy area that some women would prefer to get rid of.
