When it comes to post-pregnancy bodies, many mothers feel self-conscious about their physical changes. These changes can include stretched skin, sagging breasts, and stubborn pockets of fat. A mummy makeover is a combination of procedures that can address these issues and help mothers regain their pre-pregnancy bodies. However, there are many misconceptions about mummy makeovers that can prevent mothers from considering this option. In this blog post, we will be clearing up some of the most common myths about mummy makeovers.
Myth #1: Mummy makeovers are only for celebrities
One of the biggest misconceptions about mummy makeovers is that they are only for celebrities. Many people assume that only famous mothers have the resources or desire to undergo such a procedure. However, this could not be further from the truth. A mummy makeover is an option for any mother who is looking to improve her post-pregnancy body. Whether you are a stay-at-home mom, a working professional, or anything in between, you can benefit from a mummy makeover. Real-life examples of non-celebrity patients who have undergone a mummy makeover include mothers who want to improve the appearance of their breasts, tummy, and waistline.
Myth #2: Mummy makeovers are only for mothers who have had multiple children
Another common misconception about mummy makeovers is that they are only for mothers who have had multiple children. While it is true that having multiple children can exacerbate physical changes such as stretched skin and sagging breasts, these changes can also occur with just one pregnancy. The hormonal and physical changes that occur during pregnancy can have a significant impact on a woman’s body, regardless of the number of children. A mummy makeover can address these changes and help mothers who have had one child just as much as mothers who have had multiple children.
Myth #3: Mummy makeovers are only for women who have gained a significant amount of weight during pregnancy
Some people believe that only mothers who have gained a significant amount of weight during pregnancy can benefit from a mummy makeover. However, this is not the case. The physical changes that occur during pregnancy, such as stretched skin and sagging breasts, can happen regardless of weight gain. A mummy makeover can address these changes and help mothers who have not gained a significant amount of weight during pregnancy to improve their post-pregnancy bodies.
Myth #4: Mummy makeovers are dangerous and come with high risks
Many mothers may be hesitant to consider a mummy makeover due to fears of the procedure being dangerous or associated with high risks. However, this is not the case. Safety precautions are taken during a mummy makeover, just as with any surgical procedure. It is important to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon who can explain the risks associated with the procedure and how they will be minimized. It is also important to keep in mind that all surgical procedures come with some level of risk. A mummy makeover has similar risks to other cosmetic surgeries such as breast augmentation or tummy tuck.
What procedures can be performed as part of a mummy makeover?
A mummy makeover is a combination of cosmetic procedures that are tailored to address the specific changes that occur to a woman’s body during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. The exact procedures that are included in a mummy makeover can vary depending on the individual patient’s needs and goals. However, some of the most common procedures that are performed as part of a mummy makeover include:
Tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty): Pregnancy can cause the abdominal muscles to stretch and separate and the skin on the stomach to lose elasticity. A tummy tuck can tighten the abdominal muscles, remove excess skin, and smooth out stretch marks.
Liposuction: Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause fat deposits to accumulate in areas such as the hips, thighs, and back. Liposuction can remove these excess fat cells and sculpt the body into a more desired shape.
Labiaplasty: Childbirth can cause the labia to stretch and become enlarged, which can cause discomfort and self-consciousness. Labiaplasty can reduce the size and shape of the labia for a more youthful appearance.
Vaginal rejuvenation: Childbirth can cause changes such as vaginal laxity, loss of sensation, and stress incontinence. Vaginal rejuvenation can address these changes and improve sexual function and confidence.
It’s important to note that not all patients require all of these procedures. The procedures chosen for a mummy makeover will depend on the patient’s individual goals and concerns. A qualified plastic surgeon will work with the patient to create a customised treatment plan that addresses their specific needs and achieves the desired results.
A mummy makeover is a great option for mothers who are looking to improve their post-pregnancy bodies. The procedure can address physical changes such as stretched skin, sagging breasts, and stubborn pockets of fat. However, there are many misconceptions about mummy makeovers that can prevent mothers from considering this option. We hope that this blog post has helped clear up some of these misconceptions and encouraged mothers to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to learn more about the procedure and whether it may be right for them.

Amazing from start to finish, the communication was the main thing was fully informed and looked after, on the day of my breast augmentation, the staff were fab and made me feel at ease through out the whole process. Thank you so much.
I’ve had such a great experience with excellent advice, care and attention and surgical treatment (gynaecomastia) - I can fully endorse the treatment I have received from Centre for Surgery with absolutely no qualms at all. Brilliant in every way - thank you all so much.
Very pleased with my whole experience of having a procedure. Was so nervous about getting treatment and i was reassured and felt so comfortable throughout thanks to the amazing nurses. I definitely made the right decision to have breast augmentation at centre for surgery with dr erel.
So glad I went with centre for surgery, the whole process went very smoothly from the consultations down to the actual day of the procedure. I was so nervous on the day but the whole team put me at ease and I’m happy with my results as I feel a lot more comfortable wearing certain clothes now. My surgeon was Alberto Di Giuseppe who performed a breast Augmentation on me, and I would definitely recommend as he was very clear on what the outcome of the surgery would be and which size would look the best for my frame.
Couldn’t be happier with Dr Tillo work,i had my breast surgery one week ago and so happy with the results so far,all the staff are extremely nice and very supportive,i would definitely recommend their services,thank so much
From start to the finish everything was perfect for tummy tuck surgery. All staff is very friendly and the aftercare has been good. The Doctor and the nurse team was fantastic. I'm so happy...result is amazing. Thank you!!!
This was overall a great experience, all the staff at Centre for Surgery were friendly and put me at ease. It is a nerve wracking thing to go through an op but the staff were so nice. Mr Ertan has got a great team around him.
On the day of the operation everything went smoothly to plan, there was no delay or holdups, I had another consultation with Mr Ertan who confirmed what was going to be done and that I was still happy to proceed. I was prepped for the procedure, I met with the anaesthetist who again was really nice and put me at ease explaining his role. After the procedure I woke up with the nurse by my side making sure I was OK and checking on me, I was able to stay in the clinic until I was ready to leave and was not rushed at all. I was well looked after from the start to the point when I was discharged. Post operation I was staying at a local hotel it was so close there was no point in even getting a taxi and I was able to walk back where my partner was waiting for me.
I was expecting a lot of bruising to both my eyes but there was very little if any by the time the cast came off after 7 days, I am now at the two week post operation point and it is healing well with no outwardly visible bruising or scaring. The next milestone is a checkup at the 6 week point with my surgeon.
If you're thinking of having something like this done I would highly recommend getting in touch with Centre for Surgery.
The staff at Centre for Surgery were very kind and accommodating. They answered any questions I had about the procedure and were constantly checking up on me. A special thank you to Christina for all her support throughout.
I would just like to state the quality of care received from the nurses at Centre for Surgery was beyond the highest level. Sophie takes her patient care to another level beyond words. She always puts me at ease. She is there for me even at awkward hours just when I mostly needed reassurance and she is one of the most compassionate nurses I have come across and demonstrates her passion naturally for caring for others. She totally deserves recognition at its finest and thank you for always being there for me. 😍
