Mummy Makeover surgery encompasses a range of procedures tailored to address specific concerns and help you achieve the desired results. The surgery typically focuses on rejuvenating the breasts and abdomen, but it can also include liposuction for targeted areas or even labiaplasty for enhancing and restoring the labia. By combining different procedures, Dr. Veerle Rotsaert ensures that each Mummy Makeover surgery is personalised to meet your unique needs and goals.
The human body is truly incredible, and the journey of pregnancy and childbirth is a remarkable experience. However, it’s not uncommon for women to notice changes in their bodies after this transformative process. If you feel less satisfied with your physical appearance compared to before pregnancy, a Mummy Makeover surgery could be the solution. As an experienced and highly skilled plastic surgeon, Dr. Veerle Rotsaert specialises in Mummy Makeover procedures, helping women restore their pre-pregnancy bodies and regain their confidence. Conveniently located in London, Dr. Veerle Rotsaert performs these surgeries at the esteemed London Welbeck Hospital.
When undergoing a Mummy Makeover, you’ll receive general anaesthesia, ensuring you are completely asleep and comfortably unaware throughout the procedure. The duration of the surgery can vary depending on the specific procedures chosen and your individual requirements. Typically, a Mummy Makeover can take anywhere from one to four hours.
During the surgery, Dr. Veerle Rotsaert may perform the following procedures:
Breast Surgery: This may involve a breast uplift, breast augmentation using implants, or fat transfer to enhance volume and achieve a more youthful appearance.
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck): Excess skin and weakened abdominal muscles resulting from weight gain and loss during pregnancy can be addressed through abdominoplasty. This procedure involves removing the excess skin and tightening the abdominal muscles to restore a flatter, more toned abdomen.
Labiaplasty: Some women choose to include labiaplasty as part of their Mummy Makeover. Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces excess skin in the labial area, improving aesthetics and overall comfort.
Dr. Veerle Rotsaert will guide you through the entire process, ensuring your comfort and safety at every stage
