Mummy Makeover

A combination of breast and abdominal surgery

Mummy Makeover

Treatment overview

The mummy makeover (mommy makeover) is a combination of breast and tummy surgery to help improve the figure after having children. There are many changes of the breasts and tummy that occur after pregnancy. There are a wide range of procedures for the breast and tummy depending on the changes that have taken place in your case.

The breast surgery options will vary from the use of breast implants to restore volume or uplift techniques to lift the breasts. The tummy or abdominal surgery options include liposuction; mini-tummy tucks; and, full tummy tuck or abdominoplasty. We will discuss these options during your consultation.

Breast Changes after Pregnancy
There are many hormonal changes during pregnancy and these have an effect on the breast shape. You will normally experience swelling of the breasts during pregnancy and after childbirth. Breastfeeding will also produce swelling of the breasts as they fill with milk. Once everything has settled, there will often be loss of volume from the breasts especially the upper part of the breast. The breasts will also droop afterwards but the amount of drooping will vary from patient to patient.

Tummy Changes after Childbearing
During pregnancy the growing baby will stretch the tummy skin and muscles. The size of the baby will have an impact on the amount of stretching. It is common for the tummy muscles that produce the six pack (rectus muscles) to widen and for there to be a gap. This is called diastasis of the recti or divarication. This can be widened if you have multiple pregnancies or big babies. The skin will also stretch and this can procedure striae, more commonly called stretch marks. When the baby is born, the skin will shrink and retract. In some, the skin may still be a little loose particularly at the bottom of the tummy. This looseness can be difficult to get rid of by exercise alone and may require surgery to remove the excess loose skin.

What is a mummy makeover?

The mummy makeover is a general term for a combination of procedures for the breast and tummy but can also include labiaplasty.  The specific procedures required will vary between patients.  We would discuss the most appropriate procedures for you following your consultation. The mummy makeover surgery can be about 3-4 hours depending on the actual procedures performed.  Most patients will require an overnight stay in hospital following the operation.

Should I have the mummy makeover in the UK or Turkey?

Many people travel to have their mummy makeover in Turkey due to the costs of having the procedure in the UK.  Since the operation is a major procedure there are higher risks of complications.  The main issue with flying abroad for surgery is that there are potentially higher risks of thrombosis or clots.  The reason clots occur is due to immobility.  You will be immobile during the procedure and following it for the first 24 hours. Prolonged immobility is a risk for blood to collect in the veins and form clots.  When you travel on flights there is also an increased risk of clots due to further immobility. The other reason for having the mummy makeover in the UK is that should complications arise they can be dealt with locally.  It can be difficult to contact your surgeon abroad or even fly back to deal with any issues arising. These factors should be considered when thinking about a mummy makeover abroad.

What is the price of the mummy makeover in the UK? Also, what is the cost of mommy makeover in Turkey?

The mummy makeover cost will vary greatly depending on the combination of procedures.  The rough starting price in the UK will be from about £15000.  The price for mummy makeover in Turkey is reported to be from about $5000 to $15000. The differences in cost can be significant but one must consider the experience of surgeon; quality of facility and equipment; aftercare and much more.

Mummy Makeover


There are a number of different breast operations in the mummy makeover from breast augmentation to breast reduction. If you have always had smaller breasts and feel that you have lost more volume since having children then a breast implant may help improve this. In some women with reasonable breast volume before pregnancy, there may be some further loss of volume. If there is not much drooping then an implant may help increase the volume. When there has been a large amount of drooping it is likely that an breast uplift or mastopexy procedure may be required.

The tummy may only have some excess fat in the central part or flanks giving love handles. If this is the case then liposuction alone may be enough to help improve the shape. The loose skin in the lower tummy can be improved using either a mini-tummy tuck or full tummy tuck depending on the amount of loose skin. Mr Nassab will discuss these options during your consultation.

The length of hospital stay will depend on the combination of procedures being undertaken. If you are having a breast enlargement with either liposuction or mini-tummy tuck then this can be a day case procedure. Most other procedures will require an overnight stay in hospital.

The recovery time will depend on the operation being performed. Most people will require about 2-3 weeks off work if they have a full tummy tuck or breast reduction. The majority of patients will be back to normal activities at about 6 weeks following the mommy makeover.

It is recommended that you discuss this with your insurer. Most patients will be driving after 2 weeks following their procedure.

The risks of the mommy makeover will depend on the combination of procedures being performed. The risks or complications will be similar to those outlined for the following procedures: breast enlargement; breast uplift; breast reduction; tummy tuck; and liposuction.

The cost of a mommy makeover will vary depending on the operations. The cost of breast enlargement and mini-tummy tuck starts from £16500. The prices for uplifts and full tummy tucks will be more. You can book a consultation with Mr Nassab to discuss which procedures would be most suitable for you and the costs related to these.

The normal recommendation is 6 weeks for strenuous physical activity. Exercising earlier may cause increases in blood pressure and heart rate that may increase the risk of bleeding. Patients that have the implants under the muscle will also find that they will have more discomfort initially. Muscle repair of the abdomen can also delay recovery and abdominal exercises.
