Mummy Makeover

Pregnancy takes a toll on every mother’s body, and many women have trouble returning to their pre-pregnancy physique. A Mummy Makeover is a combined surgical approach to the breasts and abdominal area, designed to tighten, tone and restore the youthful contours of your body.

What is involved with a Mummy Makeover?

A mummy makeover is not a standard or routine procedure and is tailored specifically to the patient’s goals and desires. It can include as little as two treatments, or as many as five.

A mummy makeover may include:

Recovery from a Mummy Makeover

Recovery varies from patient to patient. Most patients describe the pain as mild discomfort, and we ensure your post-operative comfort with oral pain medication prescribed after the procedure.

Patients will experience swelling, and there may be bruising after the procedure. Major swelling usually subsides by three months, and the final results are noticeable at around the one-year mark. Compression garments will need to be worn continuously for six weeks after surgery.

Most patients should expect to take around one to two weeks off work. Those with office jobs can usually return to work after one week; however, more physically demanding jobs will require a longer recovery period. Patients can usually return to their normal activities, including gym exercises, by six weeks.

After the procedure, patients require a dressing change at one week, two-week and three-week intervals. We provide Out of Town Patients with a letter containing detailed dressing change instructions to give to their GP if you cannot attend dressing change appointments at the Brisbane clinic.

We will schedule post-operative appointments throughout the following year. These appointments can be conducted via our Virtual Clinic or in person at our James St clinic.

Scarring after a Mummy Makeover

Scarring depends on the extent of the work performed. Incisions are placed discreetly to minimise scar visibility, and most scarring will fade over time with appropriate postoperative care.

No. The mummy makeover is a buzz name given to the combination approach to surgery involving the breasts and abdomen. If you would like to improve the appearance of your breasts and if you have excess abdominal skin or fat you are a good candidate for a mummy makeover.

Time. Patients are able to recovery quicker than if they were to have the procedures done individually.

Cost: The cost of combining procedures is generally a lot less than undergoing them individually.

Patients will need to wait six months after pregnancy or breast feeding. It is recommended that women wait until they have finished having children as your results will last much longer if they are not stressed by pregnancy.

The cost of your mummy makeover can be broken down into four main components: the surgeon’s fee charged by your surgeon, anaesthetist fees, hospital fees and implant costs. At Inigo Cosmetic, we customise our surgeries to each individual patient. To receive a detailed cost breakdown, please get in touch to book a consultation with one of our surgeons.
