What Is Mummy Makeover?

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.

What Happens During Mummy Makeover?

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

Dr. V's View On Mummy Makeover

“I understand the physical changes that occur in a woman’s body after pregnancy and childbirth. A mummy makeover is a comprehensive approach to help women regain their pre-pregnancy bodies and boost their self-confidence. During your consultation, I will carefully listen to your concerns and evaluate the areas you wish to address. A mummy makeover typically involves a combination of procedures tailored to your unique needs, such as breast surgery to enhance or lift the breasts, a tummy tuck to restore abdominal tone, and liposuction to remove stubborn pockets of fat. My goal is to provide you with natural-looking results that restore your body’s shape and harmony, helping you feel rejuvenated and confident.”

One year post surgery - The best decision going to Dr V! Having lost a significant amount of weight (50kg) at the age of 21 my breasts were very low from the loose skin. After my initial consultation where she helped me and talked through all the options I had and guided me with her expertise on what would look best from her professional opinion from feeling my skin and her experience. Especially as my skin was very difficult. Had a breast lift with implants put it, surgery went so smoothly and 1 year post op they are looking incredible. So thankful to Dr V and her team, as well as the nurses at the Welbeck Hospital. After the operation was getting constant check ups both in person and over the phone. Would recommend she made feel so comfortable and the has made me so confident in my body! Thank you for everything 🙂

Undergoing elective surgery was not something I rushed into. After extensive research I met with Dr Rotsaert, and knew I had met the right surgeon to carry out my procedure. Finally a surgeon who is professional, compassionate, and demonstrates expertise!!! My initial enquiry was well received by a friendly knowledgeable team who made the booking process easy. Dr Rotsaert created a relaxed environment for me at consultation, and listened to my concerns - I left feeling reassured and well informed with my personal treatment plan. The lovely nurses Amina and Alice helped prepare me for surgery and were extremely attentive (they were also at hand for my post operative care which was nice for continuity) When I arrived at hospital the experience and trust was confirmed as soon as I walked through the door to the moment I left. I was made to feel VIP and relaxed in the knowledge I was in safe hands. Post operatively went as smoothly as I could have hoped for. The only fault being my personal lack of patience to being fully recovered. 6 weeks after surgery I can honestly say I’m delighted with my results and as cliche as it sounds wish I had done it sooner. Dr Rotsaert and her team listened and guided me throughout. With their support and expertise they turned a nerve wracking decision of mine into one of best decisions I’ve made. Gold star service!
From the very first email I sent and my initial consultation with Dr V, all the way through to my surgery day and 6 week post operation appointment, I have been so happy with how I have been treated. Dr V always made me feel comfortable and at ease, and I trusted she understood exactly what I wanted. The results are even better than I could've imagined. I have a newfound love for my body and my confidence has increased tenfold, all thanks to her wonderful work. Definitely the best decision I have every made. I can't thank Dr V and her team enough. Highly recommend!

I’d highly recommend Dr V to anyone looking for a natural breast enhancement. She put me at ease straight away, no getting topless on Zoom, no 3D simulation, but a face to face initial consultation telling me exactly what was possible and making me touch and try several implants on. I also felt like she would take her time during the surgery instead of rushing it in 20-30 minutes which was important to me. The recovery was way easier than I expected and my results 2.5 months in are amazing, I got my breasts back which had “deflated” after having and breastfeeding my daughter and I really wanted that natural effect which I got with Motiva Joy implants and demi projection. The fact the post-op appointments are included is also a great touch.

Dr Veerle was everything I had hoped I would find in a surgeon. Having done a lot of my own research and prep over the course of a few years, she was able to answer all my questions in a way that reassured me she was extremely professional, fully knowledgable and skilled/experienced enough to offer the best result. She was also generous with her time where it mattered whilst being efficient in the process. There was absolutely no hint of an upsell or any encouragement to consider additional procedures from her side which I had encountered elsewhere and had put me off. Post-procedure she has also proven a dedicated surgeon and is happy to be involved in the evolving result and post-operative journey. Dr Veerle is the best!
