A "mummy makeover," occasionally referred to as a "mommy makeover", involves a combination of certain cosmetic surgery procedures to target multiple areas of the body. It gets its name because its objective is to restore the appearance of a pre-pregnancy body shape and look.
Typical mummy makeover procedures are breast surgery, liposuction, tummy tuck, and labiaplasty or vaginal rejuvenation.
The selection of procedures can be tailored to align with your specific goal and the best outcome for you.
If you’re looking to target multiple areas of your body at once, a mummy makeover could help and offer the following benefits:
Reduced recovery: Having several procedures at once can mean a reduction in recovery time
Enhanced self-esteem: A mummy makeover can contribute to improved self-confidence
Clothing comfort: This can help patients feel more comfortable in clothing and make shopping much easier
Facilitated exercise: The elimination of surplus skin/fat can make exercise feel more comfortable
As mummy makeover surgery combines multiple procedures, it's hard to provide a cost without knowing what patients want to achieve.
For a guide cost, we recommend booking a mummy makeover consultation with the experts here at MYA.
Your initial consultation will be virtual and completely FREE, so you can talk through your concerns and why you're interested in the surgery from the comfort of your own home.
Here, you will be given a guide cost, and a fixed price will be provided during your surgeon consultation when the combination of procedures has been decided.

As with any surgical procedure, mummy makeover surgery carries inherent risks and potential side effects, including:
Changes in sensation
Undertaking multiple procedures involves the use of general anaesthesia, which introduces its own set of risks and will be discussed prior to surgery.
The exact process of a mummy makeover will depend on the specific combination of procedures you’ve selected. General anaesthesia is given beforehand, meaning that you’ll remain unconscious throughout the procedures.
Surgical procedures common in mummy makeover surgery can include:
A breast enhancement procedure isn't a one-size-fits-all surgery. It comes in many different shapes and sizes and the chosen procedure depends on the best outcome for the patient, as well as the look they want to achieve.
A breast uplift is the most common choice. This includes removing excess skin and fat removal to create a youthful and uplifted look.
This can then be combined with breast enlargement, which is when breast implants are used to create a fuller (and often larger) appearance.
If necessary, the nipple will be repositioned to ensure the final result is in line with the patient's proportions.
A tummy tuck is what most people think of when they think of a mummy makeover. It involves making an incision across the abdomen and removing excess skin and fat before tightening and realigning the abdominal muscles.
Liposuction, often integrated into a mummy makeover, begins with small incisions in the targeted areas. A cannula is used to remove excess fat through a combination of motion and suction.
When labiaplasty is part of the mummy makeover, your surgeon makes incisions in the labia to adjust the length and contour of the labia minora.
The appropriateness of a mummy makeover depends on whether you have multiple areas of concern that you’d like to address.
Given that this procedure involves the concurrent performance of multiple surgeries, it‘s important that you’re in good physical health and can allocate time off work and childcare to facilitate effective recovery.
Additionally, it may be advisable to consider a mummy makeover post-childbearing, as pregnancy can impact the outcomes of the procedure.
Recovery timelines can vary and will depend on the specific procedures encompassed within your mummy makeover.
As a general guideline, a minimum of 2 weeks of leave from work is recommended, although this might be more if your job is particularly physical.
Vigorous activities, exercise, and heavy lifting should be avoided for a minimum of 4 weeks.
In cases involving breast procedures, tummy tucks, and liposuction, you’ll be advised to wear compression garments to help you get optimum results. Your surgeon will advise you on how long you should wear the garment(s).
