Having children is a life-changing blessing for many. But many women often find it difficult to get back to their pre-pregnancy bodies with diet and exercise alone.
For this reason, plastic surgeons offer the “mummy makeover”. This is a collective term for a combination of elective surgical procedures. Plastic surgeons tailor each mummy makeover to each woman’s needs that aim to help women to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies and confidence.
A mummy makeover is usually performed in response to post-pregnancy changes in the breasts, abdomen, and waist that exercise and diet alone cannot reverse. These days, the scope of a mummy makeover has expanded to include the arms, thighs, genitalia, buttocks, and face.
A mummy makeover is normally performed as a single-stage procedure, which can make it cost-effective (as certain fees are only paid once) and convenient (because you only need to plan for a single recovery).
