There are many changes that take place to a woman’s body after pregnancy and childbirth
During pregnancy, a woman’s body is dedicated to the nurturing and growth of her unborn child. Her growing belly and active mammary glands are all preparing for motherhood and the physical tasks of feeding and caring for her baby. After pregnancy, many women struggle to reclaim their shape and size. With growing pressure to go from baby bump to wash board abs, some women may feel that they have failed with diet and exercise to win back their trim and feminine figures.
For many reasons, it may not be possible to achieve the results you want after pregnancy with diet and exercise alone. Luckily, post-pregnancy cosmetic surgery or mummy makeovers may help you achieve these goals.
The Plastic Surgery Clinic in Sydney offers surgical assistance in this regard with procedures designed to help you achieve the results you want without looking like you’ve had work done.
What is a mummy makeover?
A mummy makeover is a combination of surgical procedures designed and combined to combat unwanted physical changes brought on by pregnancy and breast feeding. Focused on the most affected areas of the body; the midsection and the breasts, a mummy makeover can help women overcome dissatisfaction with their appearance post-pregnancy.
A mummy makeover typically includes breast surgery; either a breast lift or a breast lift with implants to restore the shape and volume of the breasts, which is altered during pregnancy and sometimes aggravated after breast feeding as well. A tummy tuck and liposuction can also be performed to reduce the appearance of the ‘mummy tummy’, which may be distended or have excess skin causing a muffin top.

Why you need to wait before getting work done?
Although a mummy makeover can be performed any time after the body has physically recovered from pregnancy and child birth, we advise to wait until you are done having children and have stopped breastfeeding for at least three months.
This is because the body changes with each pregnancy and surgery results may be undone each time. Your breasts also continue to change after breastfeeding and may continue to change after surgery making the results unpredictable. The ability to breastfeed is also not guaranteed after a mummy makeover.
Your surgeon’s advice to wait before making the decision to undergo surgery after your child’s birth is aimed at giving your results longevity. As well as ensure your expectations and results discussed during the initial consultation are met.
