What is Mummy Makeover?

A Mummy Makeover involves a combination of cosmetic procedures designed to help restore a women’s body after changes from pregnancy and childbirth.

A typical Mummy Makeover may include procedures such as tummy tuck, breast lift or breast augmentation, liposuction, and other body contouring procedures.    The specific procedures included in a Mummy Makeover can vary based on individual needs and goals.   If you are opting for one or more procedures to restore or improve your body following pregnancy and childbirth and have completed your family, a tailored Mummy Makeover package may be a good option for you.

The Consultation

Ahid Abood Plastic Surgery - Your Consultation

Prior to your face-to-face consultation with me I will usually see you for an initial complimentary video consultation. This is a convenient way to make sure that you are a suitable candidate for surgery before moving forward to the ‘face to face’ appointment. The face-to-face consultation can take place at ether our London or Cambridge clinics and is intended to be a relaxed, welcoming setting that will put you at ease and encourage you to openly discuss the concerns about your body along with your goals.

The face-to-face consultation can take up to an hour and during the appointment a comprehensive medical history  and examination will be carried. You are welcome to bring along a friend or member of your family if you wish and nurse chaperone can also be present during the appointment. Medical photographs will be taken, which are used as a record of your progress and help to plan your surgery. These are stored in your confidential medical records.

Having had many years of experience undertaking Mummy Makeovers, I am well-placed to recommend which procedures will best enable you to achieve your desired outcomes.   You will have the opportunity to ask any questions at this point and I will discuss the potential risks and expected outcomes of each procedure.

The consultation helps me to get a clear understanding of your concerns and enables me to put together a tailored package to address your individual needs.    As undertaking this type of surgery is a big decision, I always offer a minimum of two consultations prior to surgery.  This gives you time to reflect on the information I have given you and address any further concerns or worries you may have.

The Procedure

Ahid Abood Plastic Surgery - Procedure

The mummy-makeover procedure is a combined procedure which frequently involves surgery to the breasts and the abdomen. Both selected procedures are  usually carried out at the same time. Some common procedures included in a mummy makeover are:

1. Breast augmentation: This procedure involves the placement of implants to enhance the size and shape of the breasts, which may have lost volume or sagged after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

2. Breast lift: Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift is performed to lift and reshape sagging breasts. It can restore a more youthful and perky appearance to the breasts. Sometimes, a breast lift is carried out at the same time as breast augmentation. If done together, this is called an augmentation-mastopexy.

3. Tummy tuck: Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area, tightens the underlying muscles, and creates a flatter and more toned abdomen. It can address the stretched and loose skin that often occurs after pregnancy. Frequently, a tummy tuck is combined with liposuction. If carried out together, this is called a lipo-abdominoplasty.

4. Liposuction: Liposuction is a procedure that removes excess fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, or buttocks. It can help contour and reshape areas that may have accumulated stubborn fat deposits during pregnancy.

Aftercare & Results

Ahid Abood Plastic Surgery - Aftercare

Following your surgery, you will usually stay in hospital for one night. During your stay you will be looked after by experienced specialist nurses that will make sure you are comfortable and have everything that you need. In the morning after your surgery, I will come and check on you before you go home and answer any questions that you may have. Before you go home, you will be given information about the ‘do’s and don’t’s’ in the first few days and weeks following surgery.

My nursing staff and I are always available to address any concerns and your recovery will be closely monitored through a series of follow-up appointments, typically made at 1 week, 6 weeks, 3 months and 1 year after surgery.

It is expected that you will be up and about from the first day of your surgery, but it can take a few weeks before you are fully back to your usual everyday routines and activities.

It is likely that you will need to take some time off work and to gradually increase your activity levels until your body feels comfortable to move around more easily. Although you will see an immediate result following surgery, the outcome may not be visible for several weeks as the swelling takes time to resolve.

Dr Abood and his team are amazing, having gone through a breast reduction recently I could not recommend him enough. Not only am I very happy with the results but the aftercare has been amazing. The team are always available to answer questions, help and provide advice. I have already recommended him to several people, if you are considering this surgery I would see him for a consultation.

I visited Dr Ahid Abood and his team to have a squamous cell carcinoma removed from my nose which was followed by a skin graft. I was quite anxious about this procedure, especially as it involved a prominent part of my face. Dr Abood explained the process, possible side effects and outcome in a calm and informative way. After the procedure l felt relieved, relaxed and very glad to have met Dr Abood and his lovely team. Thank you!

From the moment I met Mr Abood I was certain that he was the Surgeon I wanted to perform my upper and lower Blepharoplasty operation due to his kind, calm and informative approach. Mr Abood explained the whole process thoroughly and I was always able to ask any questions that I had. I was 100% sure that I wanted this operation but after my initial consultation with Mr Abood I was 200% sure! Correspondence with Mr Abood's Secretary Justine was always a pleasure as she is efficient and understanding. I was so pleased that I was able to meet Justine in person. I chose the Weymouth Street Hospital for my surgery and it was a great choice. I was made to feel totally at ease. ALL of the staff there were so kind and caring but a special shout out to Arden and Suzanna (night nurse). Arden is so kind, caring and an absolute delight. I must also praise the food! Wished I could have stayed longer :) My recovery from surgery has been much faster than I thought it would be but exactly as Mr Abood predicted. After 4 weeks my scars have healed so well and in fact I can see improvement every day. I can now look in the mirror and like what I see already and am excited to see the end result. Thank you Mr Abood and Justine. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Abood, Justine and The Weymouth Street Hospital. If you are looking for an excellent Surgeon look no further.

Awesome support from beginning to end. I was nervous about breast reduction surgery and conscious of everything this is entailed. Super pleased to share that Dr Abood and Justine his secretary have made it is easy a process for me as possible. Lots of information and reassurance from the first consult to today, currently four weeks post surgery. I’ve been able to reach out directly with any questions or queries I’ve had along the way and have had answers really quickly! And most importantly I’m happy with my new look, feeling more confident already. Cannot wait for the final results ???? Thank you team Abood!

I am so grateful to have been referred to Mr Abood for surgery, by my consultant dermatologist who diagnosed a rapidly growing tumour on my leg as a Keratoacanthoma. With the need to have this removed as a matter of urgency, Mr Abood’s wonderful secretary, Justine, clearly went to a great deal of trouble to arrange for me to have surgery within 24 hours. I arrived at The Weymouth hospital where I met Mr Abood for the first time. His warm, gentle manner was so reassuring while he explained the procedure clearly, including the need for a skin graft and put me at ease before I was prepared for surgery. I cannot speak more highly of the whole experience, from Mr Abood and his delightful, caring team of nurses, to the theatre staff, they were all friendly but respectful, filling me with confidence. The care I was given was exceptional and the facilities at this hospital were outstanding. When it was time to have the dressing and stitches removed, Mr Abood did it himself and was so gentle that I didn’t feel a thing. There is no question that Mr Abood is an extremely skilful surgeon who goes ‘above and beyond’ to provide the best possible outcome for his patients. I feel blessed to have been referred to him.

If I can give 10 stars to Mr ABOOD, Justine and the whole team at the Weymouth Hospital I would. I’ve searched for months and had a few consultations before I’ve met Dr. Ahid Abood. He listened all my concerns and answered all of my questions. Very experienced, professional and respectful. I had a mommy makeover surgery ( tummy tuck with 360 liposuction, muscle repair and breast lift with implants) with him and what can I say, this surgeon is magician. Recovery was much easier than I expected. I am extremely happy with my results and I have so much confidence now. Huge shout out to Justine, this woman is a sunshine, so kind and supportive.
