Motherhood is a life-changing experience where milestones are celebrated and personal growth is cherished. The commitment required to raise healthy children and watch them flourish shouldn’t be underestimated, but a time will also come for mum to address her own body contour changes. The effects of pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding can be long-lasting, and reversing the unwanted signs or motherhood with a mummy makeover is the obvious solution in many cases.

Hormonal changes associated with pregnancy are natural, although difficult to predict or control. Post-pregnancy weight loss is achieved with a diet plan, but reshaping and sculpting the body with elective surgery is often the best way to halt or reverse the aging process for the long haul. Getting back in shape and staying in shape requires dedication and commitment, but restoring firmness and shape is achievable with a mummy makeover.

Why choose mummy makeover surgery?

Mummy makeover surgery is a response to elective surgery demand from women 30-50 years of age. Every mother responds to childbirth and child rearing in their own way, with physical and emotional changes likely to take place, and although a mummy makeover shouldn’t be undertaken lightly, the results truly are instant and recovery quite fast with ongoing improvements. Mothers can also become self-conscious about their changed postnatal appearance, resulting in crippling shyness and withdrawal from regular activities.

Mummy makeover is more a marketing term than surgical procedure. The makeover is achieved using a combination of surgical procedures, such as breast lift, arm lift, or tummy tuck for personalised results. It’s no surprise that mothers are most likely to have a mummy makeover, although other women and men also benefit greatly from progressive surgery using cutting-edge equipment and technology.

Childbirth can result in weight gain, muscle atrophy, stretch marks and weakened breast tissue. Surgical procedures are combined to rectify noticeably damaged skin and tissue areas, with follow-up procedures for further improvement always an option. Mummy makeover surgeries include:

Removing unwanted tummy fat

For most new mothers, changes are most noticeable on the stomach. During pregnancy, the developing baby causes abdominal muscles to adjust and change in shape. It’s not uncommon for new mothers to experience stretch marks, loose skin and protruding muscles. Scars caused by C-section delivery may also be apparent. A tummy tuck, along with other mummy makeover procedures is often the best way forward.

Restoring breast size and shape

Some new mothers are under the misconception that their breasts will stay the same by avoiding breastfeeding. Natural changes occur during pregnancy, including swelling milk glands that replace regular tissue. When these milk glands shrink without being replaced with fatty breast tissue, a woman’s breasts can droop, appear less prominent, or display obvious stretch marks. A breast lift can be safely performed alongside other mummy makeover procedures.
