What is a Mummy Makeover?
Choosing to embark on cosmetic surgery is a decision that should be made with all the available facts to hand. Whether opting for an individual procedure, or multiple procedures you need to know what to expect and what the possible outcomes may be.
A mummy makeover is an increasing popular choice for some women. This article aims to answer some of the most often asked questions, such as, ‘should I go ahead with a mummy makeover?’
During pregnancy and the months that follow the birth of your baby you may find that some areas of your body have changed in ways that you had not anticipated, or perhaps to a larger degree than you were expecting. It can be frustrating for many women, particularly if they had been used to taking care of their bodies with healthy diet and exercise, and now find that their previous lifestyle choices no longer bring the results they were used to.
There can be a variety of changes to the body due to pregnancy and breast feeding, but these tend to fall into a handful of categories – these are breast, abdomen, waist, hips and thighs. The most noticeable changes occur in the breast and abdomen areas. This can be due to weight gain which has permanently stretched the skin, or perhaps the muscles in the abdomen that have separated during pregnancy. Both of these changes can result in issues that cannot be addressed by diet and exercise alone. For this reason, many women choose to undergo a range of procedures to correct the areas that continue to bother them.
So, what exactly is involved with a mummy makeover? The range of procedures will usually include breast augmentation and breast lift, a tummy tuck, and liposuction to the flanks and thigh area. This is one of the ways to ensure you regain your pre-pregnancy figure, and often you will look even better than you did beforehand. It can be really disheartening for some women who struggle with maintaining a shape they are happy with following childbirth. These procedures address all the areas that you are likely to be dissatisfied with. An increase in confidence and self-esteem will follow, and you can continue your healthy lifestyle secure in the knowledge that you look your absolute best.
Is a Mummy Makeover Really the Way to Go?
Do you want to put your whole body through the stress of taking on multiple procedures at once? And is it actually a good idea to have a full mummy makeover all at once? Each of the individual procedures carries a recovery time, and each one has the potential to take longer than expected. Multiply this by numerous, simultaneous procedures and you could find yourself struggling to go about your usual routine for quite some time. By far the better option, as far as we are concerned at Enhance Medical Group, is to go ahead with these procedures, but to do so individually. This will put far less stress on your body at any one time and allow you to fully recover from one procedure before you embark upon another. We strongly feel that this is the better option, both for your safety and recovery.
What are mummy makeover packages?
We’ve established what a mummy makeover involves. It is all, or a combination of, breast augmentation and breast lift, tummy tuck and liposuction. Here at Enhance Medical Group we have a dedicated team of surgeons and an expert medical team who will safely and successfully carry out each and every one of these procedures.
We choose to do these one at a time, but we are still able to offer an attractive multiple procedure discount when they are booked together. This will give you peace of mind knowing that all of your insecurities will be dealt with separately, giving you enough time to fully recover, and you will benefit from a pleasing discount to boot.
You may feel that you only need to have a couple of the mummy makeover procedures to achieve your preferred shape, you might choose to have them all. Whatever combination you feel is right for you we will be able to accommodate it. Individual packages for more than one procedure can be discussed with your surgeon and your consultant and a payment plan to suit you can be arranged.
