When we speak to our patients, many of them tell us that their bodies have never been quite the same since having children.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding put women through serious changes which can affect their breasts and the stomach area the most, and these can't always be improved by diet and exercise.
That’s where the ‘mummy makeover’ comes in. It’s a combination of procedures which aim to restore and rejuvenate areas of the body which may have been affected by pregnancy. These treatments have been selected specifically for women who have had a baby, and they’re performed in a single surgery.

Which procedures are included in a mummy makeover?
Most commonly, a mummy makeover will be made up of a breast lift and a tummy tuck or liposuction, but this can also include vaginal tightening or labia reduction too. Here are some of the cosmetic surgery procedures which you may wish to include in your mummy makeover:
Breast lift (with or without implants)
If your breasts just aren't the same since having children and they seem to have dropped due to breastfeeding, then breast uplift surgery could help to reshape them and give you a tighter, more uplifted profile. And if you've always wanted bigger boobs or they’ve lost volume due to pregnancy or ageing, then you could also combine this surgery with a breast enlargement.
Pregnancy can leave with excess, sagging skin in the stomach area, or 'tummy bulges' that are resistant to diet and exercise. Tummy tuck surgery could reshape your abdomen to give you a flatter, smoother profile, and can also provide muscle placation or muscle tightening to stretch abdominal muscles, so that your firmer shape can be maintained afterwards.
This removes fat and contours the body. It's one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures for patients who are looking for fat loss from various parts of the face and body, including the chin, stomach, buttocks and thighs. In a mummy makeover, liposuction is most often performed in the stomach area in order to achieve a smoother, more contoured profile.
Labiaplasty and/or vaginal tightening
The labia can become stretched during childbirth, but this procedure can reduce the size and define the appearance of the inner labia. Often, vaginal muscles become loose and weak after having children - vaginal tightening surgery can change the way your vagina feels and functions, bringing back more tone and control as well as enhancing sensation during sex.
