A Mummy Makeover is a combination of Plastic Surgical procedures that focus on restoring and improving your pre-pregnancy breast and body
The gift of bearing a child and giving life to a child is something that we are blessed to be able to do. As pregnancy naturally involves expansion of the abdomen to accommodate the baby miracle, skin and soft tissues get stretched and the breast often loses elasticity and begins to sag which is further affected by breast-feeding.
The goal is to create breasts with symmetry, shape, projection, fullness and contour and a flat and tight stomach.
The most popular combination of a Mummy Makeover is a tummy tuck with breast augmentation and a mastopexy.
The following procedures are performed in a Mummy Makeover:
Breast Lift with or without breast implants or Breast reduction
Liposuction of the back, thighs and hips
Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck
Obtaining the perfectly flat tummy with elegant contours can be achieved with an abdominoplasty. Most women after pregnancy develop weakness in their abdominal musculature as a result of the physiological expansion of pregnancy. The increased weight also places stress on the soft tissues of the abdomen resulting in dermal scars/striae (stretch marks), excess skin and fat. All these three areas are corrected in abdominoplasty resulting in a youthful, desirable flat tummy.
At PMC an Abdominoplasty is performed for the following reasons:
To create a flat tummy
To help restore a pleasing hip to waist ratio following pregnancy
