Mummy Makeover

A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures to restore your pre-baby body.

What is this procedure?

A mummy makeover is a customised combination of plastic surgery treatments aimed to help you regain your pre-baby physique following the major changes that pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding have brought about.

Mums frequently end up with deflated, sagging breasts and loose, stretched abdominal skin, as well as divided abdominal muscles and tissue that no amount of exercise can fix.

There is no way to tighten ripped fascia, unite separated muscles, or eliminate loose skin with exercise. A mummy makeover can help you recover from the physical and emotional impacts of childbirth, as well as emotions of helplessness and unhappiness over how your body appears.

Patients undergoing a mummy makeover must be within 15kg of their target body weight and in good general health. It's also a good idea to avoid having this procedure too soon after having a child, as tempting as it may be. To avoid undoing your surgical outcomes, wait until you're done having children and at least six months after you've stopped breastfeeding.

This also aids your surgeon in determining your body's baseline appearance. To limit your risk of issues, address any possible concerns with Dr Mohaghegh during your initial consultation and be honest about your present health.

What can be achieved?

  • Improve lower back pain and urinary incontinence due to the restored strength and stability in the abdomen and pelvic region.
  • Create a more normal appearance of the abdomen.
  • Correct abdominal muscle separation.
  • Repair an abdominal hernia following previous abdominal surgery.
  • Repair umbilical hernia following pregnancy.
  • Restore youthfulness
  • Balance asymmetrical breasts
  • Improve breast and torso proportions
