What is a Mummy Makeover?

Pregnancy is an incredible time in any woman's life. When you're holding your new baby in your arms, nothing else matters. However, down the track, you may have noticed your body has changed quite a lot. 

A mummy makeover is a term used to describe a combination of treatments which will transform your body similar to how it was pre-pregnancy. A mummy makeover is an investment in your happiness and your wellbeing. It can help you feel more comfortable in your skin so you can be the best possible version of yourself.

Mummy Makeover Explained

A mummy makeover is often multiple surgeries which are offered as part of the one package. The term is used to describe cosmetic surgery which can include;

Tummy tuck

A tummy tuck reduces excess skin around your abdomen. During pregnancy, your entire torso stretches to elongate the muscles around the abdominal wall and the skin above it. 

When the muscles have loosened, stretch marks can appear, causing sagging in the lower stomach. Although diet and exercise can help, in some cases the skin is stretched beyond remedy. 

A tummy tuck will remove excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen as well as tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall.

Breast enhancement or lift

Pregnancy and breastfeeding may result in significant changes in the size and shape of your breasts. The skin may have been stretched and is beginning to sag. Unfortunately, exercise can only help so much when this occurs, and your best option may be to undergo breast surgery. 

Your options for breast surgery are:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast reduction
  • Breast lift

Dr Moradi will work with you to choose an option that is best suited to your body and your desires. 

Liposuction

If you are having trouble shifting stubborn fat, liposuction is a procedure which can help you return to your pre-pregnancy body. 

Liposuction is a minimally invasive technique which reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fatty deposits. 

Vaginal rejuvenation (labiaplasty)

During pregnancy and labour, your vaginal area may have become significantly stretched and enlarged. After you have given birth, it is very normal for you to feel as though you have lost confidence or comfort with the way you look and feel 'down there'. 

Dr Moradi will take a highly individualised approach to your labiaplasty surgery in terms of the extent and design of the tissue excision. 

Is a mummy makeover right for me? 

To undergo a mummy makeover, you don't just have to be a new mum. This surgical technique can be used to get your pre-baby body back, no matter how long ago you gave birth.

Mum's can often feel a little guilty about spending time and money on themselves, which is entirely normal. Your body has been through a huge, amazing, difficult process. You deserve to give yourself the care and attention you give to others. After all, if you are feeling happy and confident within yourself, that positive energy will flow on to others around you.

To understand if a mummy makeover is the right decision for you, it's important to have a consultation with Dr Moradi to chat about your options. 

Before you book your mummy makeover, you should wait at least six months after childbirth. You should also make sure you are: 

  • Generally healthy with no serious health conditions
  • A non-smoker
  • In a good place mentally
  • Realistic in your expectations of surgery

If these are all applicable to you, you can go ahead and book your first consultation with Dr Moradi.
