The Mummy Makeover – What is it ?
You may see on the internet a combination of procedures performed in one operation which is termed “The Mummy Makeover”.
The advantage of this procedure is that in one operation you are able to correct many of the changes that have occurred following pregnancy.
This allows you to have minimal down-time and one admission to hospital.
In our practice, the most common combination is a breast augmentation, for deflated breasts after breastfeeding, with a natural or shaped implant in a subpectoral pocket, and this may or may not be combined with a small breast lift. Added onto this procedure, it is not uncommon for us to perform an abdominoplasty surgery with liposuction. As part of the process, we find that patients often incorporate Fraxel laser resurfacing and anti-wrinkle injections or Fraxel facial skin rejuvenation.
The operation, however, is not without risks, and it is critically important that you understand that by combining operations together, you increase the operative time and the time required for recovery. It is therefore important that you are reasonable in your expectations and that you have time to discuss with your surgeon the types of procedures that are being combined.
If you think that one or more of these procedures or a combination of these procedures may be of benefit to you, we would be only too happy to help you with the advantages and disadvantages of the relevant procedures. You will find information regarding these procedures here on our website.
