A plastic surgeon from the US has explained why a growing number of women are opting to undergo ‘mummy makeovers’. Dr Michael Fiorillo, a board-certified plastic surgeon in New Jersey and New York City, claimed the procedure is the perfect way for women whose bodies have changed as a result of childbirth to get back their pre-pregnancy shape.A mummy makeover usually includes a breast lift or augmentation, tummy tuck and liposuction to address some of the key issues that affect women after pregnancy, such as sagging breasts and a soft midsection. Each surgery is tailored to the patient’s specific needs and requirements – which is why Dr Fiorillo believes it results in such high levels of patient satisfaction. “One of the reasons mummy makeovers are so successful is because they address several of a patient’s concerns at once,” he said. “Effectively turning back the clock, we help women combat the effects of childbirth itself, as well as subsequent breastfeeding.” The expert said the operation can also help to restore a woman’s confidence if she is suffering from low self-esteem because of the toll pregnancy has taken on her body.
