What is a Mummy Makeover?

A 'mummy makeover' is a combination of surgeries involving the breast, abdomen, waist, hips and thighs designed to restore the body to its original contours and appearance prior to childbearing.

The procedures typically involved are a breast augmentation and breast lift, a tummy tuck and liposuction. All of these can be combined into a single surgical procedure.

The breast augmentation and lift aim to deliver a firmer breast with better contouring, and can either be done at once or in a staged fashion with the lift first and then the augmentation.

For women also in need of a tummy tuck the excess skin and fat from below umbilicus is removed and redraped to provide a firmer appearance of the abdomen, whilst the muscles underneath are recentralised to provide better contouring and appearance. The incision is concealed below the waistline, and the procedure is often combined with liposuction to further improve contouring. Typical areas for liposuction include the waist, hips and thighs.

The goal of a mummy makeover is to restore the shape and appearance of a woman's body after pregnancy. Many women notice changes in their bodies post-pregnancy, and desire the restoration of their previous shape.

There are many areas of the body that can be addressed by surgery, most commonly the breasts, abdomen, waist, thighs, genitalia and buttocks.

A mummy makeover is typically performed as a single stage procedure. There are many techniques used to perform a mummy makeover, and many factors should be taken into consideration when choosing which techniques are best:

  • What is the desired amount of restoration?
  • What are the desired areas of restoration?
  • Where would you like the incisions discretely placed?
  • Are breast implants or natural breast augmentation alternatives preferred?

Why have a mummy makeover

Pregnancy and childbirth can have a huge impact on a woman’s body, quite often changing it forever.  While some women embrace this change, others yearn for their body to return to its youthful, pre-pregnancy state.  Mummy makeover surgery refers to a combination of treatments which can give a woman back her pre-baby body.  After going through pregnancy, giving birth and breastfeeding, women are often left with surplus skin and weakened stomach muscles, excess fat (baby weight), sagging or deflated breasts and vaginal changes, such as a loss of tone or sensation. All these issues can be successfully treated via mummy makeover surgery.

A mummy makeover is tailored to meet the needs of the individual patient and typically involves procedures that target the breasts, abdomen, waist, hips, thighs and vagina. The most common procedure combinations include abdominoplasty, breast surgery and liposuction. These can all be combined into one treatment.

Mothers who undergo such procedures typically report a corresponding increase in self-confidence and an improved sense of psychological wellbeing.

Of course it is possible to restore some semblance of your pre-baby body with a combination of healthy eating and exercise, but sometimes this just isn’t enough. Only a surgical abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) for example will fix diastasis recti, a separation of the stomach muscles, which commonly occurs during pregnancy. Similarly, with stress incontinence, pelvic floor exercises only work to a certain extent and sometimes only vaginal rejuvenation surgery can help to resolve this common problem.

We recognise that time is precious when you are a mother, so you may not have the time to spare to exercise and focus on losing stubborn so-called baby weight. Liposuction, a surgical procedure which effectively removes fat cells from various areas of the body including the thighs and abdomen, can help get rid of excess fat quickly, reintroducing contours and definition which may have been lost during your pregnancy journey.

The breasts are a part of the body which are particularly affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding. The breasts get bigger during pregnancy and breastfeeding, but this can lead to sagging, stretch marks and leave the breasts looking deflated and empty. Therefore breast augmentation (a boob job) or a breast uplift are popular choices when it comes to mummy makeover surgery.

A tummy tuck is also a mummy makeover staple. The excess skin and fat below the tummy button is removed and redraped to provide a firmer appearance of the abdomen, whilst the muscles underneath are recentralised to provide better contouring and appearance. The incision is expertly concealed below the waistline. The Cadogan Clinic is the only cosmetic centre of excellence in the UK to offer the mummy makeover with the cutting-edge Brazilian Abdominoplasty technique.

In short, a mummy makeover can be whatever you want it to be. This treatment can be tailored to meet your own individual needs and desires following a consultation with one of our expert surgeons.

The Cadogan Clinic is one of the top providers of mummy makeovers in London. Our consultants take a truly holistic view of each patient prior to the procedure, considering their individual body shape and proportions, goals and expectations in order to achieve optimal, natural and complementary results. The practitioners work together with the patient (and other consultants if required) to plan the best course of treatment for the individual.

Why Do People Have It?

The main reason for having a mummy makeover procedure is to help restore a more visually pleasing body shape and appearance, similar to the one enjoyed prior to pregnancy and childbirth.

The procedure aims to reverse any unwanted or unplanned changes, ranging from unmoveable 'baby weight', to changes in breast size and shape, excess abdominal skin and undesired genital shape and function changes.

Mothers who undergo such procedures typically report a corresponding increase in self-confidence and an improved sense of psychological wellbeing.

Typical expected improvements from surgery include:

Most commonly procedure combinations include Abdominoplasty, Breast Surgery and Liposuction

Who Is Suitable?

Cadogan Clinic considers individuals fit for the procedure, if all of the following are true of them:

  • You are in good psychological and physical medical health
  • You are at your ideal body weight
  • You have a positive outlook and realistic expectations of what can be achieved via surgery
  • You are a mother who has experienced body shape and contour changes following one or multiple pregnancies 
  • You are finished with childbearing

What areas are typically worked on as part of a mummy makeover?

There are a number of areas which are typically treated as part of a mummy makeover:

  • Breasts: Pregnancy can cause breasts to get fuller and heavier. This stretches the ligaments causing the breasts to sag. This sagging can get worse with each subsequent pregnancy. Once a mother has stopped breastfeeding, this can leave the breasts looking deflated.  A mummy makeover typically includes a breast augmentation procedure to reintroduce volume or a breast uplift (mastopexy) can help to restore a perkier appearance to the breasts.
  • Abdomen: Pregnancy stretches the abdomen skin. After birth, loose and sagging skin and stretch marks are left behind. If the mother has undergone a Caesarian section, this will also leave a noticeable scar. Abdominoplasty, otherwise known as a tummy tuck, will help by removing loose skin and restoring definition to the area. A tummy tuck does not deal with problem fat, but the procedure can be combined with liposuction. A tummy tuck can also help correct diastasis recti, the separation of the abdominal muscles, which affects two-thirds of women who have gone through pregnancy.
  • Vagina and labia: The main issues affecting women who have undergone a vaginal birth are a loss of tone and/or sensation in the vagina or urinary incontinence. Vaginoplasty will give more tone, strength and control to the vaginal muscles which have been weakened by pregnancy and childbirth. The procedure also helps to eliminate stress incontinence. A vaginal rejuvenation treatment, which may include vaginal tightening, perineal surgery, labiaplasty or perineum and pelvic floor tightening, may also be carried out. Vaginal rejuvenation can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual.
  • Thighs: Most women will gain weight during pregnancy, including on the thighs. This fat can be stubborn and difficult to lose, but liposuction can help to remove the fat and sculpt the area. Alternatively, a dramatic weight loss after pregnancy can leave folds of loose, sagging skin behind. A thigh lift removes excess tissue to leave a firmer contour.
  • Buttocks: During pregnancy, a woman’s body releases more relaxin. This relaxes muscles, ligaments and tendons in the pelvic area in preparation for the birth. Unfortunately, this can also cause muscles in the area to stretch, and this can have a negative impact on the appearance of the buttocks. Coupled with the natural weight-gain associated with pregnancy then this can result in buttocks which may have lost their shape and gained or lost volume. A buttock lift is a surgical procedure to lift and reshape the buttocks, improving contours and giving the buttocks a more shapely appearance. However if a loss of youthful volume is the issue, a Brazilian butt lift may be recommended. This can be combined with a liposuction procedure carried out on another part of the body, for example the thighs of hips.

The Process

Your journey with the Cadogan Clinic will start with up to two consultations with one of our leading specialist plastic surgeons at our award-winning premises in Chelsea. These consultations will take between 30 and 60 minutes.

During your consultation, your surgeon will ask about your expectations for your mummy makeover and talk about what will happen during the procedure. They will also explain how the procedure will affect you and the recovery period.

It is important that you are open and honest about what you hope to achieve through surgery to help ensure the best possible result. Your surgeon will be happy to answer any questions you may have at this point. It may be a good idea to write your questions down before attending the consultation. Having established what you want from the surgery, and what is possible given your anatomy, several key measurements will be made and standard clinical photography will be taken. Your medical history will be discussed and a physical examination will be carried out.

If your surgeon feels you are a good candidate for surgery, you are then invited to consider whether you would like to proceed with your mummy makeover or not following a two week 'cooling off' period.

If you decide to go ahead with surgery following the cooling off period, the next time you will return to the clinic is on the day of the procedure. It is important that you prepare by taking the following measures ahead of surgery.

  • Stop smoking. Smoking decreases blood flow in the skin and can slow the healing process. If you smoke, your doctor will recommend that you stop smoking six weeks before surgery and during the recovery period. You should avoid smoking for at least 48 hours before your surgery.
  • Avoid taking certain medications. You should avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements in the week ahead of your surgery. Taking these can increase bleeding.
  • Avoid alcohol. You should not drink any alcohol for 48 hours ahead of your surgery. This is because alcohol can hamper the healing process.
  • Arrange for help during recovery. Make plans for a friend or family member to drive you home after you leave the hospital and stay with you for at least the first night of your recovery at home. You are likely to need further help during the recovery process, so this should be a consideration before agreeing to surgery.
  • In the six hours prior to surgery you must not consume food or any drink, other than small sips of clear fluid which will be allowed up to two hours before you are admitted to the clinic. Clear fluids include still water, black coffee and black tea.

On the day of your procedure we ask that you arrive for your admission an hour before the agreed start time of surgery. At this point a nurse will come and record blood pressure and other relevant tests, you will meet with your anaesthetist and your surgeon who will make the final mark-ups. A general anesthetic is administered. Here at the Cadogan Clinic we use Total Intravenous Anaesthesia (TIVA) to ensure minimal sickness after surgery and a quicker recovery time. 

The procedure will take place over the course of four to six hours. The exact procedure will vary depending on the precise combination of treatments selected, however it is most common for the surgeon to begin the procedure with the breast area and then move on toward the abdominal and genital area to minimise risk of infection. In almost all cases, you should expect to have all procedures done during a single surgery, although phased staging is also possible.

Due to the skill of the surgeons and anaesthetists and the type of anaesthesia used, patients are able to return home on the same day as having the mummy makeover procedure, with minimum side effects. 

Following your mummy makeover, you will recover in our ambulatory recovery rooms. You may feel a little drowsy but this often wears off within a few hours.  Once you are able to eat and drink, and our specialist nursing team are happy that your initial recovery is complete, you will be allowed to leave the clinic with a friend or family member.

You may feel some pain or discomfort following your surgery, but this can be controlled using over-the-counter painkillers.

The recovery time will vary depending on which procedures you have had. In general you should expect to take at least three weeks off work. Recovery can take between six and 12 weeks, depending on the extent of the surgery. Your surgeon will be able to tell you more about your recovery time once it has been decided exactly which treatments you are having as part of your mummy makeover surgery.

Our 24/7 on call service is open to all patients for any question or query they may have at this time.

You will meet in person with our nursing team one week after surgery to check the incision sites. We also recommend meeting one of our aestheticians to discuss ongoing treatment to support the healing process if required.

A final check up will take place six weeks after your mummy makeover surgery.

What are the benefits of a Mummy Makeover?

The biggest benefit of a mummy makeover is that a woman can enjoy the return of her pre-pregnancy body. This includes perkier, fuller-looking breasts, a flatter, firmer, abdomen and the removal of stubborn excess fat from areas including the thighs, hips and waist.

Mummy makeover surgery can successfully get rid of stretch marks gained during pregnancy, particularly around the breasts and lower abdomen, and even improve the appearance of a C-section scar if scar revision is included in the procedure.

Breast lifts help to raise and tighten the breasts’ overall appearance, restoring a youthful cleavage. Some women opt for breast augmentation to increase the size of their bust, which can provide an extra confidence boost if you were unsatisfied with the size of your breasts before your pregnancy.

A mummy makeover also helps to restore the vagina, effectively tackling the problem of stress incontinence. Vaginal reconstruction is also used to repair the physical trauma caused by childbirth, such as a damaged perineum or vaginal prolapse – a bulge or heaviness in the vagina or lower abdomen area. Vaginal rejuvenation surgery will help to rectify all these issues.

Pregnancy hormones can have a negative impact on a woman’s skin. Mummy makeover surgery can also help to improve the appearance of your skin, tightening up loose and sagging skin and addressing any problems with skin pigmentation.

Mummy makeover surgery will help to restore your self confidence. With a flatter abdomen and a leaner physique, you will be able to fit back into the clothes that you enjoyed wearing before your pregnancy, without tight clothes leaving marks or indentations on your body. A mummy makeover procedure will help you to feel confident enough to wear swimwear again. If your post-baby weight-gain or body changes affected your self-confidence to undress in front of your partner, a mummy makeover will help to address concerns over your body image.

A mummy makeover can also help to restore a woman’s confidence in the bedroom. Not only will surgery help to address cosmetic concerns, such as a stretched labia, but it will also help to improve sexual function, often making sex a more pleasurable experience. 

By restoring this sense of self-confidence and self-esteem, this can in turn improve romantic relationships and help you to feel more like your old self.

Your body has done an amazing thing by carrying, birthing and nourishing a baby. But there is nothing wrong with wanting your old body back at the end of this journey. Book an appointment with one of our expert consultants here at the Cadogan Clinic and let’s discuss how we can help you to reach your body goals.

Why come to The Cadogan Clinic for your Mummy Makeover?

The Cadogan Clinic is the only cosmetic centre of excellence in the UK to offer the 'Mummy Makeover' with the cutting-edge Brazilian Abdominoplasty technique.

The Brazilian Abdominoplasty technique delivers a better tone and definition to patients, whilst reducing risk and recovery time.

The Brazilian tummy tuck is a safe and improved surgical technique that combines liposuction (to the upper abdomen and flanks) with tissue removal and repair of tummy muscles. This modified technique has less pain, negates the need for drains and creates a better sculpted shape.

Mr William Van Niekerk is amongst only a very small handful of surgeons in the UK trained and qualified to perform the very specialist Brazilian Abdominoplasty and he was also one of the first surgeons to perform this procedure as a day case surgery in the UK. The extensive experience of Mr Van Niekerk, combined with his meticulous, exacting standards makes him one of the best and most exciting practitioners in the country.

"The Mummy Makeover is hugely popular amongst women seeking to reclaim their pre-baby bodies, and target areas of the body where, despite the best intentions after dieting and exercise, are not going to improve. Mummy Makeover procedures at the Cadogan Clinic are bespoke to each patient, addressing unique concerns in order to re-sculpt the body back to its natural shape,"
- Mr William Van Niekerk

The consultants at the Cadogan Clinic take a truly holistic view of each patient prior to the procedure, considering their individual body shape and proportions, goals and expectations in order to achieve optimal, natural and complementary results. The practitioners work together with the patient (and other consultants if required) to plan the best course of treatment for the individual.

Due to the skill of the surgeons and anaesthetists and the type of anaesthesia used, patients are able to return home on the same day as having the Mummy Makeover procedure, with minimum side effects. This approach is designed to enhance the recovery, minimise risk of infection and reduce the impact on the individual's life. Patients will also benefit from free aftercare from the dedicated nursing team 24 months after the procedure.

What are the benefits of day case surgery?

  • Nausea
  • Bleeding or Infection
  • Poor healing of incisions and scarring
  • Haematoma
  • Seroma
  • Fat necrosis or embolism
  • Loss of sensation or numbness
  • Pain

What Can I Expect From My Surgery?

Our Surgical Patient Advisor, Ellie, answers our patients most frequently asked questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

The mummy makeover is typically performed as one single procedure. Part of the reason for this is that some of the treatments are naturally carried out in tandem. 

For example, the Brazilian tummy tuck is a safe and improved surgical technique that combines liposuction to the upper abdomen and flanks with tissue removal and repair of tummy muscles. This modified technique has less pain, negates the need for drains and creates a better sculpted shape.

Although the mummy makeover is performed as a day surgery, meaning you will not need to stay overnight, these are all invasive procedures and recovery takes time. Depending on which procedures you opt for, you can expect to be in recovery for between six and 12 weeks. During this time you will have to restrict certain activities, such as going to the gym, and refrain from sexual relations. This is particularly important if you have undergone a procedure such as vaginal rejuvenation, which involves tightening the vagina, reducing the size of the labia and perineum and pelvic floor repair.

Some surgery, particularly surgery involving the intimate area, will leave you bed bound for a couple of days. You will need someone to look after you and help around the house during this period. If the treatments are split over several procedures, then this means the clock resets on the recovery period and you will need more downtime, including taking extra time off work.

Having separate procedures also means multiple trips to the clinic and more anesthesia, which comes with its own risks and potential for complications.

By having all your mummy makeover treatments in one convenient procedure, you will see a more dramatic result immediately, rather than drawing it out over a longer period of several months, or even years. 

Having all the procedures at once may also cost less than having your surgery in phases. Please get in touch with our team who will be able to provide you with a quote.

The cost of a mummy makeover varies as it depends on what treatments you are having, how many treatments, and the surgical techniques used (for example, there are a number of different tummy tuck methods). Often it is cheaper to have all your procedures done at once, rather than have your surgery in phases spread out over a longer period of time. Your consultant will be able to advise you further on this.

Included in the cost of mummy makeover surgery are: 

  • Up to two 30 minute to 60 minute consultations with a leading specialist plastic surgeon at our award-winning premises in Chelsea.
  • Your procedure carried out at London’s leading specialist cosmetic surgery centre of excellence
  • 24/7 on call nurse assistance one you have returned home
  • Dedicated patient coordinator, who will act as a personal point of contact through your journey with the Cadogan Clinic
  • A pre-operative medical assessment to ensure you are fit for surgery
  • Comprehensive post-operative aftercare courtesy of our specialist cosmetic nurses

We do offer and accept mummy makeover finance via an array of high street providers. Please speak to one of our patient advisors, who can guide you to a trusted mummy makeover finance provider, accepted by the clinic.

Typical expected improvements from surgery include:

  • Removal of excess abdominal skin and fat
  • Centralisation and tightening of the stomach wall muscles
  • Reducing or restoring breast volume and shape
  • Reducing the visibility of scars and stretch marks
  • Removal of excess pockets of fat and skin from trouble areas such as the waist, arms and thighs
  • Rejuvenating the appearance and structure of the vaginal region
  • Increased satisfaction with the overall body contour and shape

The final results of mummy makeover surgery are typically first seen at around six weeks, post-treatment. However you should expect to see continued improvements over the following 12 to 18 months. Your surgeon will be able to give you specific guidance at your consultation, once the precise combination of procedures has been agreed.

To ensure the best possible results from your mummy makeover surgery, you must follow all the aftercare advice issued by your surgeon. Failing to do so will impact upon your recovery time and may have an adverse impact on your final result. Following the post-operative instructions will also help lessen the likelihood of visible scarring.

Cadogan Clinic considers individuals fit for the mummy makeover procedure, if all of the following are true of them:

  • You are in good psychological and physical medical health
  • You are at your ideal body weight
  • You have a positive outlook and realistic expectations of what can be achieved via surgery
  • You are a mother who has experienced body shape and contour changes following one or multiple pregnancies

If you are planning another pregnancy, we would advise waiting for your mummy makeover until you have completed your family. A mummy makeover will not make your body immune from the changes brought about by pregnancy and childbirth. If you go on to have another pregnancy after your surgery, this will affect the result and it is likely that you will need to repeat the surgery at a later date.

The results of the procedure will last for many years but unfortunately they are not fully permanent. This is because the body continues to change shape as we age, and skin elasticity continues to deteriorate. The results will be meaningful and last a number of years, but will not be completely permanent.

You can maintain the results of your mummy makeover for longer by eating healthily, exercising and generally living a healthy lifestyle. We strongly advise quitting smoking as this accelerates the aging process, causing skin to sag, as well as hampering healing.

You may wish to consider further treatments in the future in order to maintain your rejuvenated body, such as liposuction or a breast lift (mastopexy).

We do not recommend having a mummy makeover if you plan to get pregnant again, as this will materially impact any results achieved. We also recommend that you avoid any significant weight loss after surgery. This is because this will leave excess lax skin in the treatment areas which will require further treatment.

As each procedure in the mummy makeover is different, the recovery times for each varies too. The amount of time you will need to take off work will also depend on the type of job you have; inevitably, administrative jobs will be more swiftly resumed than occupations that require more strenuous activity.

Likewise, you will be able to return to low impact activities like walking and cycling before you are able to reintroduce lifting heavy weights and doing intense aerobic activities.

Post procedure pain can take one to two weeks to fully subside and abdominal tightness may be felt for several weeks. You will be fitted with a post surgical garment to provide support and help with bruising and swelling. This should be worn day and night for four to six weeks. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for six to 12 weeks, with results improving for up to 12 to 18 months after the procedure.

You will also benefit from free aftercare from the Cadogan Clinic’s dedicated nursing team 24 months after the procedure.

If you split your mummy makeover surgery into several different procedures, then this will mean a more prolonged recovery period.

We would advise that you wait at least six months before undergoing mummy makeover surgery. This is in order to allow the abdominal tissue to heal before undergoing a tummy tuck.

A mummy makeover is an invasive surgery and depending on the nature of the surgery, it can take a long time to recover - anywhere up to 12 weeks.

If you have young children, you will likely need round-the-clock care during your recovery. There will be some bed rest required and you will likely need help to carry out every day tasks. You must avoid lifting small children in the aftermath of your surgery. All these things will need to be taken into consideration when you are considering mummy makeover surgery.

If you have had a breast lift (mastopexy) as part of your mummy makeover you should be able to breastfeed as this should not interfere with milk supply. However when you are recovering from invasive surgery, you may discover that finding a comfortable and safe position in which to feed may be a tricky task. You should be able to express milk following a breast lift.

It is also possible to breastfeed with implants, but it depends on the size and placement of the implants. If the incisions have been made under the fold of the breast or through your armpit, you shouldn't have any problems breastfeeding. Your surgeon will be able to advise you more on this at your initial consultation at the Cadogan Clinic.
