Mummy Makeover Plastic Surgery | Melbourne

Many Mums miss the bodies they had BEFORE they had children.  While you’re body will never be completely the same, Mummy Makeover Surgery of the breasts and tummy area CAN help you get a firmer contour or flatter tummy and more uplifted breasts.

What’s involved in MUMMY MAKEOVER Plastic Surgery?

  • Mummy Makeovers may help you regain smoother, firmer body contours after having children.
  • Surgery can help you rediscover a waistline contour and core ab muscle strength after having children.
  • It can also help restore fullness to the breast contours, raise the nipples from a droopy position and reduce your bulges.

Should I get a Mummy Makeover?

  • Are you missing the firmness and contours of the body you had before you had children?
  • Are you hiding your body in bagging clothing and leggings or loose tops?
  • Do you wish you could feel like one of the ‘yummy mummy’s’ you read about in fitness articles or see on television?
  • Have you been pining to wear the new fashions and swimwear lines you don’t yet feel comfortable in?
  • Do you want to explore the figure-rejuvenating possibilities of Mummy Makeover surgery of the breast and tummy?

Sometimes all the exercise in the world won’t help you get your body to a shape you’re comfortable in.

  • If you have sagging, stretched out skin, or torn abs, the only way to correct for these conditions is through plastic surgery such as body contouring procedures.
  • These might include a breast lift or breast augmentation, Abdominoplasty, Lipectomy and similar procedures such as liposuction.

Our expert team of Melbourne Specialist Plastic Surgeons – offering cosmetic procedures and corrective Plastic Surgery – may be able to help you regain a body you feel more comfortable living in so that you can enjoy being a MUM PLUS still have a body you’re happy to live in.

Mummy Makeovers: When should I consider Breast and Tummy Tuck Surgery?

  • Has having kids ‘ruined’ your tummy, breasts or body contours?
  • Are you having incontinence issues or lower-back related problems since giving birth?
  • Does your tummy look like a deflated, overly-stretched balloon?
  • Does a protruding stomach area leave you looking bumpy or feeling out of balance?
  • Are you tired of breasts that look like empty sacks, or having southward-pointing nipples?
  • Are you sick of excess flab on your upper arms- that some people call ‘bingo wings’ or ‘tuck shop arms’?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions, you might be a good candidate for a Mummy Makeover procedure.

Mummy Makeover Surgery is often suitable for Mums of All Ages.

  • In the past, most Mums had to live with the unwanted body changes they ended up with AFTER having children.
  • Today, Mums have many different Mummy Makeover options for getting their bodies to a more contoured, firmer state after having children, by reducing skin folds and lifting or reducing the bulges or ptotic skin.

Plastic Surgery treatments can not only give your body a smoother contour, it can repair abdominal area muscle damage or abdominal hernias including correcting for diastasis recti (torn abs) that results in mild urinary incontinence or stress incontinence (sneezing or coughing related incontinence).

With repaired abdominal muscles, you can become stronger and fitter again – reducing back pain and improving your exercise motivation as well!


Before having surgery, do your research – a second opinion is typically a good idea, but make sure it’s with a FRACS qualified Plastic Surgeon rather than a less trained doctor or non-certified person.

  • Patient experiences and surgery results from Mummy Makeover Surgery DO vary from patient to patient.
  • You also will have a scar that is usually extensive, but scar treatments can help.
  • Surgeries may be better off performed individually (breasts then tummy tuck or vice versa) although can sometimes be combined into a single session (this may increase surgery risks and healing times, but this too varies from patient to patient)

Benefit of Mummy Makeover Plastic Surgery or Cosmetic Surgery

  • Tummy Tuck procedures have been shown to help reduce chronic low back pain and mild urinary incontinence.
  • Many patients also say they feel more motivated to stay fit once the skin rolls are reduced and the bulges made smoother or flatter on the belly; and once their breasts or nipples are uplifted or more firmly positioned again, versus drooping, empty looking and ptotic.

Phone us on (03) 8849 1444 if you discovered that nothing you have done – including exercise and eating healthily – has worked to get your body back into the natural contours you want to re-experience after having children.
