A ‘Mummy Makeover’ is inherently personalised to your unique needs – whether you want to target weakened muscles and loose skin that affects the many areas of the body after birth or another issue – we’ll create a package tailored to you.
A typical combination of surgical procedures will traditionally include an Abdominoplasty, Breast Augmentation and Liposuction, however each patient is unique and your surgical plan will be created following a thorough consultation with your surgeon who will discuss your goals with you in detail.
There are many packages we can offer. For example, if you’re looking to significantly shape and enlarge sagging breasts with a Harley Street breast surgery, we may recommend Breast Augmentation with implants. However, we also offer a breast lift for those looking to maintain their original size and are seeking a more subtle lift and reposition.Discover all breast surgeries
Not all Mummy Makeovers consist of all three of the procedures mentioned above. You may be looking to target just one concern.
If you’re interested in Liposuction, there are two options we can offer. The first one is traditional Liposuction, which can be performed almost anywhere on the body. However, popular postpartum areas are the abdominal, the thighs and the hips.
Traditional liposuction is performed using laser energy which is employed to manually remove unwanted fat cells with heat. The other option to consider would be Vaser Liposuction.
Vaser liposuction is different from classic body or stomach liposuction as it involves the use of ultrasonic technology which is able to lastingly disturb the fat cells and cause them to break down. This procedure is more suitable to those who have already lost a lot of post-pregnancy weight but are struggling to the create their desired definition or lose stubborn fat.

In today’s culture, there can be pressure for women to bounce or snap back to their pre-pregnancy body quickly after having a baby, and as a top plastic surgery clinic we want to ensure you receive the best quality results and surgical care. For this reason we ask our patients to wait a minimum of six months before undergoing any surgical operation – or however long it takes for you to feel ready after that time.
A Mummy Makeover is not a “weight loss” procedure and while it is true that some fat will be removed during the procedure or procedures, you will need to have lost the bulk of your baby weight before you book a consultation.
We recommend being no more than 25 pounds over your goal weight before surgery to ensure the maximum lasting results.
One thing you need to consider before undergoing a Mummy Makeover is that there will be a few things in the weeks following that you will need to avoid (typically around six weeks, depending on the speed of your healing).
One of them is that you cannot do any heavy lifting, or driving for at least two weeks – that’s right, it means no lugging toddlers, shopping bags or weights around. Of course, as a parent these things may be unavoidable, but one of our biggest advice we always give our patients is to minimise physical activity. (Gradually, you should be returning to a normal routine after two weeks, with the exception of heavy lifting, stretching and athletic endeavours.)
Yep, that means slowing down and being very easy with yourself.
Ideal for: Those who are looking to restore their pre-pregnancy figure.
Results First Seen: With surgical procedures, results are immediate and continue to improve after the surgery.
Lasts: Indefinitely (however Liposuction does not prevent post-surgery weight gain).
Aftercare: A compression garment may be required to wear afterwards.
Recovery: You can often return to normal activities completely around 6 weeks after. We do say that patients who are in physically undemanding jobs can return to work after two weeks.
If you have a physically demanding job, you retiring to work must be approved by the surgeon.
