What is a Mummy Makeover Surgery?

A pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. can cause several types of changes in a woman's body: the breasts lose their firmness, the abdominal area becomes stretched, stubborn fatty deposits, and stretch marks appear. Not all women face those effects; for some, they will disappear gradually, but for others, they will be more resistant and annoying.

The Mummy makeover combines several cosmetic surgery techniques that help correct these pregnancy effects. These post-pregnancy surgeries generally include breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction.

How Does It Work?

The techniques associated with a mummy makeover vary depending on the patient’s anatomy, her desire, and how her body has evolved after one or more pregnancies. Mummy makeover is generally the combination of breast surgery (breast lifting and/or breast augmentation) and silhouette surgery (liposuction, tummy tuck) procedures.

In some cases, the procedures performed also include buttock surgery or genital cosmetic surgery.

What Does a Mummy Makeover Surgery Involve?

1. Consultation for Mummy Makeover

After you submit your request for information, you will take an online consultation to make sure that you are a suitable candidate for the mummy makeover surgery. During this consultation, your complaints will be learned in detail and you will be asked if you have had any current health conditions or any surgery that you have experienced before.

Any information that affects the evaluation process will be useful at this stage, for us to define your case and prepare a customized treatment plan for you.

2. Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic

This is the stage where you choose one of the clinics and surgeons that we offer you according to your expectations, and also where we arrange the date and trip plan that suits you upon your preferred clinic/surgeon.

3. Final Consultation with Your Surgeon

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your surgeon who performs your mummy makeover surgery. Everything about your surgery will be discussed and decided by you and your surgeon during this consultation.

The surgeon will ask you some questions to try to understand your expectations and goals better and also make you understand what you should expect from your surgery and the potential risks or complications of the procedure.

You will also plan an individualized surgical and recovery plan that can be followed, especially during the first 24 to 48 hours after the surgery. At this stage, you need to find the answers to all the questions you have in mind.

The surgeon will explain the whole process clearly and try to simulate the results as much as possible, to feel comfortable and ready.

4. Medical Examinations

Before the surgery begins, your surgeon will conduct physical and blood tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status for this combined surgery. The surgeon will determine all the measurements and body drawings with the help of computer-based tools.

Every patient is required to undergo medical tests to ensure that nothing can hinder the success of the surgery and if any risks are detected, surgeons try to eliminate them first.

5. Surgery

Mummy makeover is not a procedure, it is a combination of different cosmetic procedures. The first step is to get in touch with your surgeon and decide on the procedures to follow. There are some options that you can consider in this regard:

  • If you opt for breast augmentation, you will have to choose between silicone and saline breast implants or a fat transfer to the breasts. Depending on the size and shape you are trying to achieve, the surgeon will make his recommendations during the consultation.

  • If you prefer to opt for liposuction, the surgeon will inform you about the latest liposuction technologies for you to choose the most appropriate one according to your needs.

  • Whatever form of surgery Mummy Makeover offers, the candidate’s preference will have priority when it comes to placing incisions. Surgeons pay maximum attention to keeping the incisions as small and invisible as possible.

What Should I Expect from Mummy Makeover?

Since Mummy makeover is not a single procedure, you should follow the recovery and aftercare instructions of the procedures to be performed according to your needs.

Whether you wear a special garment, how long you take a break from sportive activities, or in what position you can sleep depends entirely on which procedure you will enter. Don't worry, your doctor and clinic will inform you in the most detailed way about postoperative care and what to expect.

Things You Should Consider Before Mummy Makeover Surgery

  • You should get all the lab testing and visit your surgeon to make him/her evaluate your current health status

  • Your surgeon may prescribe you a certain medication or may pause or adjust your current medications

  • You should stop smoking and balance your alcohol consumption

  • Avoiding taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements is also important because it can increase bleeding in the whole process of a mummy makeover.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Is Mommy Makeover Procedure Painful?

Due to the general anesthesia, you will not feel any pain during the procedure but, to relieve possible postoperative pain, your doctor will prescribe you pain medication.

How Soon After Childbirth Can I Undergo Mommy Makeover?

First of all, this should not be considered an emergency. Rest time is essential after childbirth to allow the tissues to return to normal. The skin, mammary gland, perineum, and muscles need to recover. A minimum of 6 month waiting period before considering a mummy makeover is a good decision.

It should be longer if you are breastfeeding your child. And it should be much longer if you consider another pregnancy.

Can I Get Pregnant Again After Mummy Makeover?

The answer is yes; however, it is wise to plan your future pregnancies well. It is not recommended to be pregnant too quickly after a tummy tuck or breast augmentation surgery.

Is Mummy Makeover Cost Abroad Affordable?

Yes, the procedure will be more affordable abroad and cost less in popular medical tourism locations like Turkey. But some factors affect the Mummy Makeover cost, like the clinics' location, the surgeon's experience, and the technique used.

    Ana was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Ana made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

    The whole process went really smooth from the beginning, it was really easy to communicate with them. I had my mommy makeover done in June, 2021 and the only thing I regretted is putting off my surgery for some years because I did not want to travel abroad, but in the end it was all worth it. The prices are much lower and I was happy with my surgeon (Prof. Omer), he is such a friendly person and an amazing surgeon as well. I love my results and I've never felt so confident in my body, even before the pregnancy. I can recommend Flymedi and my surgeon in particular.

    Hello everyone! I really feel the need to share my experience with Luna Clinic because it was so amazing. I was absolutely terrified about getting my surgery done as it was a big one and in a foreign country of all places. I had a gastric sleeve a few years ago and lost a lot of weight but unfortunately the Irish health system won't help you with any cosmetic procedures so I was on my own. I contacted Luna Clinic without knowing what to expect or if I could go through with it but the warm welcome I received was just what I needed to feel comfortable going forward. I really needed this done, I was so unhappy with all the loose skin I had and I just decided enough was enough and I would be going ahead with this. I needed 2 separate operations due the amount of excess skin I had and both operations went through without a hitch. The staff at Luna Clinic were phenomenal and I really think it makes the whole experience enjoyable to know you are truly being looked after. They genuinely cared about me and my situation, I received messages from the moment I contacted them until well after my surgery. It's been 3 months since I had my last surgery and they still message to make sure I am doing well. The results are so much better than I was expecting and I couldn't be happier with everything. Thank you all so much for such a lovely experience, really changed my life and helped me gain my confidence back!

    I have been wanting to get a mommy makeover for some time now and just decided to take the plunge and start researching. All moms will know that after you have kids, there’s stubborn fat that just will not go! I found Flymedi on google and went from there. They were great from start to finish and much more helpful than other clinics I was in touch with. Really friendly and didn’t make me feel bad for asking a billion questions! Would highly recommend their services to everyone as the results are great and the people are friendly.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    I highly recommended Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
