What is a Mummy Makeover Cheshire?
A Mummy Makeover is one of today’s most popular combinations of plastic surgery techniques and is in demand among Miss Breahna’s patients in Cheshire and the North West.
First made popular in the US, where it is known as the ‘Mommy Makeover’, it is favoured by some celebrities to help them regain their pre-pregnancy body. It is specifically designed to address common issues faced by women who have been through pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Motherhood and your body
Wonderful though motherhood is, pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding can take a physical toll on women’s bodies, especially if you’ve experienced multiple pregnancies.
The main areas of the body that are commonly affected by pregnancy and childbirth are the tummy area and breasts.
Overstretching can leave behind excess skin on the tummy and weak muscles. Breastfeeding may cause loss of volume to the breasts resulting in sagging and a change in their shape.
What’s in a ‘Mommy Makeover’?
Similar to the American ‘Mommy Makeover’ that most women may be familiar with from magazines and talk shows, the Mummy Makeover Cheshire is aimed at producing customised results to fit your unique needs.
It consists of a bespoke plan of surgeries that tighten, tuck and recontour various areas of the body.
As the breast and abdomen are the primary area of change with pregnancy, a mummy makeover will often centre around them.
The cosmetic surgery procedures
Mummy Makeover commonly includes an abdominoplasty (traditional or mini tummy tuck), to reshape the stomach and waist, with breast augmentation (enlargement) and / or Mastopexy (breast lift), to improve the shape and size of the breasts.
Depending on the recommended set of procedures a Mummy Makeover can be performed during one single operation or, for patient safety reasons, may be spread out over a few surgical sessions.
Let’s look in more detail at some of the plastic surgery treatments involved.
Tummy tuck and Mummy Makeovers
It is quite common to be left with excess skin in the lower abdomen and muscle separation after pregnancy. Tummy tucks focus on contouring the front of the abdomen.
Mummy makeovers may include a traditional or full tummy tuck, which addresses the entire abdominal area. Or they may include a mini-tummy tuck, which changes only the part of the abdomen that is below the navel.
Read more about the difference between a full tummy tuck and a mini tummy tuck, as well as extended tummy tucks on Miss Breahna’s website – Tummy Tuck treatments.
Breast augmentation in Mummy Makeovers
Breast enlargement surgery is a common part of Mummy makeover surgery to improve the size and shape of the breasts.
Breast augmentation surgery, or a ‘boob job‘ involves the insertion of breast implants through incisions in discreet areas of the breast to minimise scarring.
Miss Breahna maintains high standards of after care at her breast enlargement clinics in Cheshire and you will be seen 1 week, 6 weeks, 3 months and 6 months post surgery, closely monitoring your physical well-being.

Other breast surgery options with makeovers surgery
A breast lift (also known as breast uplift or Mastopexy) is also often part of Mummy makeover surgery. Pregnancy, weight loss and breast feeding can all cause drooping of the breasts, and a breast uplift can alter the breast shape and return it to your more familiar contour, before pregnancy.
Breast uplift, or Mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that improves the shape of the breasts by tightening the skin envelope and lifting the nipple position.
Breast enlargement with implants can be done at the same time during mummy makeover surgery, to give you a larger cup size if you have smaller breasts. Read more about Breast lift surgery with Miss Breahna in Cheshire here – Breast Uplift Surgery.
Miss Breahna also performs breast implants removal and replacement, and breast reduction surgery for her patients in Cheshire. Read more about breast surgery with Miss Beahna here – Breast Surgery procedures and options.
Mummy makeover additional cosmetic procedures
- Liposuction is commonly used as part of the Mummy Makeover, in combination with tummy tucks or breast surgery.
- An arm lift or arm reduction surgery is a procedure that can improve the shape and tone of the upper arms by removing excess skin that has lost elasticity and localised fat deposits.
- A thigh lift, also called a ‘thighplasty’, is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin from the inner thigh area, to produce a firmer, more balanced contour.
- Fat transfers are growing in popularity. Fat transfer surgery uses the fat extracted by Liposuction from one area of the body, to be injected somewhere else in the body, improving the shape of another area.
- Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure which aims to reduce the size and improve the shape of the lips of the vagina. In some women the skin of the inner lips of the vagina protrudes excessively, and this may be due to childbirth, ageing or the effect of hormones.
How are the procedures combined?
Combinations of tummy tuck, liposuction and breast lift and/or breast augmentation to restore breast and body shape, can be done on the same day.
In some cases a breast lift alone can restore the youthful shape of your breasts; but in many situations it is necessary to combine it with breast implant surgery in order to give you the desired volume and fullness of your cleavage.
