If you have experienced the amazing joy of watching your body grow to accommodate new life, you know that pregnancy and becoming a mother can be a special time for many women. You may also know firsthand that reversing these changes with diet and exercise is not always possible. In the early months, your focus is on the health of you and your newborn. After some time, you might start thinking about how to enhance your post-pregnancy body.
Mummy makeovers aim to remove excess skin and fat, tighten muscles, enhance volume and shape, and recreate a more desirable appearance. By combining multiple procedures into one surgery you’ll have a single recovery, getting you back to your daily activities sooner. The mummy makeover has positive effects on you both physically and mentally. Many women report a major increase in self-confidence following their makeover.
Components Of A Mummy Makeover
A mummy makeover is a customized surgery that combines procedures focusing on improving the appearance of your post-pregnancy figure. The most common procedures include breast enhancement, tummy tuck, and liposuction.
A breast lift is the most common component of a mummy makeover since many women experience sagging following pregnancy, weight loss, or breastfeeding. Breast lifts are usually performed in conjunction with breast implants or reduction but can be stand-alone procedures.
Pregnancy may leave new mums with excess skin in their abdominal area. The abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, removes this extra skin, focusing on tightening abdominal muscles to provide a smoother, more toned appearance.
Women who want to reduce larger areas of fat or small pockets of exercise-resistant fat in the tummy area, hips, back, thighs or other parts of the body can choose this highly customizable procedure. Liposuction is a safer, less invasive option for removing fat in a single treatment.
