All About The Mummy Makeover

All About The Mummy Makeover

Becoming a mother is an incredibly beautiful moment in a person's life. Whether it is the beginning of a family or a new addition, it is a wonderful moment for you and your family. To do this, your body goes through tremendous changes that can have lasting effects. Pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding can leave a lasting impact on your body and can leave some feeling self-conscious of these changes. Due to skin and muscles stretching to extremes during pregnancy, diet and exercise can’t always reverse the effects. Breastfeeding can also cause breasts to lose volume and sag. To reverse these effects, some cosmetic intervention may be required. That’s where the Mummy Makeover comes in.

What is a Mummy Makeover?

The Mummy Makeover is a treatment package specifically designed to tackle the effects of pregnancy on the body. This uses a combination of procedures to achieve your desired results. The combo surgery can tackle several issues at a time, giving you back confidence in yourself. This can be loose skin, sagging breasts, and can even help with issues such as a tummy gap (diastasis recti) which often persists postnatally even after exercise or physiotherapy.

What is included?

Some of the different procedures that can be included are: breast augmentation; breast uplift (mastopexy); breast reduction (mammoplasty); tummy tuck (abdominoplasty); diastasis rection correction and liposuction. Depending on the results you want to achieve, these can be combined to suit you. These are then done simultaneously, meaning that you will only have to undergo one surgery. 

When should someone consider having this surgery?

This surgery will have the most benefits if it is performed after you have finished having your family. You can have this procedure before this time, but may need revisions due to the effects of future pregnancies. It is also recommended that you be within one stone of your ideal post-surgery weight. 

If this procedure is something that you are sure about, you will also generally need to wait at least six months after giving birth to allow the body to heal. This time will also allow your breasts to return to a more regular size and shape after breastfeeding. 

What are the risks?

With any surgery, there are always risks. This is major surgery, general anaesthesia is needed, which has its own set of risks and there may also be some changes to sensations felt around the incision sites. 

Due to this procedure being tailored for you, risk factors can differ from case to case. This is why it is so important to speak to Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe before your procedure to make sure you are fully aware of your risks. 

What is the recovery time?

Again, where this procedure can differ from patient to patient, so can the recovery time. Generally, you will need to have several weeks of rest. Bruising and swelling are common, but this will be monitored by Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe to make sure that you are healing correctly.

Recovery can be slightly longer than it would be for individual procedures, such as having the diastasis recti correction alongside the tummy tuck. However, another benefit of the Mummy Makeover is that you will only have to go through one recovery period to achieve the results you want. 

So, Why should I consider a Mummy Makeover?

A Mummy Makeover was created with mums in mind and is used to specifically combat the lasting effects of pregnancy. This surgery can also have very satisfying and long-lasting results, especially when combined with a healthy lifestyle. 

This is one procedure that tackles several issues all at once. 

Being tailored to your needs also means that you can get the most out of this procedure. Mr Mark Ho-Asjoe is very happy to discuss your needs and provide treatment accordingly. He has years of experience working on this procedure and can adjust his techniques as needed. 

You deserve to feel confident in your body, especially after giving birth. This procedure could help you regain that confidence, and help to reverse some of the less favourable effects of pregnancy.
