Am I suitable for a mummy makeover?: We have all heard the phrase ‘yummy mummy’ and none so often as in the media and glossy magazines, with images of celebrities seeming to spring back in to shape in what seems like minutes after giving birth.
The good news is that nowadays, being a mum doesn’t have to mean compromising on the way you look and letting ‘nature’ take its course. Modern procedures using innovative techniques can mean that new mums can restore and revitalise their facial and bodily appearance in no time.
At our clinics in London and Manchester, Dr Ricardo Frati offers a vast range of solutions for a mummy makeover that will leave you feeling more glamorous than before!
What is a mummy makeover?
Treatments for a mummy makeover can include:
- Breast surgery – augmentation, lifting, reduction.
- Tummy tuck surgery
- Liposuction surgery
- Non-surgical facial procedures such as fillers, chemical peels and microdermabrasion
Am I suitable for a mummy makeover?
You may well be thinking “am I suitable for a mummy makeover?” and this is worth thinking about in more detail.
Some procedures have breast feeding as a contraindication and if you are a very new mum, some surgeries may not be advised until some months or even a year or two down the line. Injectable treatments would not be allowed until you have stopped breast feeding and with surgical procedures it’s also worth considering that there may be a period of downtime and recovery to undergo which could hinder your daily activities as a new mum and in-turn, affect your overall wellbeing.
Timing your surgery
The name of the game when it comes to the mummy makeover is to be safe and get as much information as possible from your initial consultation, so that both you and Dr Frati can plan and time your procedure (or procedures) in accordance with the relevant safety guidelines.
There may be some procedures (such as microdermabrasion and some peels) that you can have straight away, which will give your skin that youthful glow and just make you feel that little bit more glamorous, whilst experiencing the joys (and tiredness) of your new arrival. You can then have your surgery, requiring more significant downtime and recovery, at a later date.
Ensuring you look after your health is vital before any surgery. Eating a healthy and varied diet and taking some exercise will prepare your body for the trauma of a surgical procedure.
Having a strong, healthy body will aid recovery and minimise downtime. So in the months that precede your surgery, make sure you’re taking in as many good foods as possible and keeping yourself in tip top condition.
