A mummy makeover is a term used to describe a combination of cosmetic procedures designed to address the physical changes that occur in a woman's body following pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. It typically involves a personalised combination of surgical procedures that target the breasts, abdomen, waist, and other areas affected by pregnancy.
The specific procedures included in a mummy makeover can vary based on individual needs and goals, but they commonly include:
1. Breast enhancement: This may involve breast augmentation (using implants or fat transfer) to restore lost volume and enhance breast shape, breast lift (mastopexy) to correct sagging or drooping breasts, or a combination of both procedures.
2. Abdominal contouring: A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a central component of a mummy makeover. It involves removing excess abdominal skin and fat, tightening weakened or separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti), and improving the overall contour of the abdomen.
3. Liposuction: Stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise can be addressed through liposuction. This procedure removes excess fat from specific areas such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, or love handles, further enhancing body contour.
4. Other procedures: Depending on the patient's needs and goals, additional procedures such as body lift, thigh lift, or buttock augmentation may be included in a mummy makeover to improve overall body shape and proportions.
The aim of a mummy makeover is to restore a woman's pre-pregnancy body or achieve an improved version of it. By combining multiple procedures into one surgical session, women can address multiple areas of concern simultaneously, resulting in comprehensive and transformative results.
