Increasingly popular in UK, but pioneered as ‘The Mommy Makeover’ in the US, a mummy makeover is a combination of surgery that addresses the changes that occur to a woman’s body after both childbirth and breastfeeding.

Giving birth is undoubtedly one of the most extraordinary and precious experiences a woman undergoes in her life. It is, also undoubtedly, one of the biggest and most extraordinary events to take place to her body. And the changes that occur as a result can sometimes be very difficult, sometimes impossible, to reverse naturally.

Despite a healthy diet and regular exercise some mothers struggle to regain their pre-baby bodies. Often women are left with a stretch of flesh and loose skin around the base of their stomachs and excess weight, particularly if they have carried multiple or very large babies. After breastfeeding they may also find their breasts have changed, describing them as hanging, empty or saggy. And as such some women may find that the person they are outwardly no longer matches who they are on the inside.

The mummy makeover combines the three very popular and regularly performed surgical procedures of breast augmentation (enlargement)/breast lift with or without implant, high definition liposuction (laser) and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). All of which are combined to redefine and lift breasts, recontour the stomach and remove excess weight. For some women this can be a life changing experience, restoring confidence, boosting self-esteem, and helping them feel comfortable in their post childbirth skin again.
