The “Mummy Makeover” – Rejuvenation of the post pregnancy body

Monday, March 19, 2018

Having a baby is one of the most wonderful experiences in life however some women find that as much as they love being a mum, they don’t love some of the changes pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding have made to their bodies. Many women who have had children experience breast and body changes that are often not correctable with diet and exercise.

Weight gain, stretched abdominal muscles, sagging skin and other physical reminders of their pregnancy are all part of the journey for some, while other women are left unhappy with their post pregnancy bodies – opting to undergo a “Mummy Makeover” post childbirth.

A mummy makeover is typically a combination of procedures designed to restore a woman’s body to its pre-pregnancy state. There are many different surgeries that can be performed as part of post pregnancy rejuvenation – the two most popular ones being abdominoplasties (tummy tuck) and mastopexies (breast lift and implants). Generally, a mummy makeover will work to improve several areas of the body in one operation – the intention here being to minimise down time and allow for one recovery – essential for busy mums.  It can reduce excess fat and enhance breast volume as well as improve self-confidence. 

You may be a good candidate for a mummy makeover if you

  • Are at a healthy and stable weight
  • Are dissatisfied with post pregnancy changes to your body and find it impacting how your feel about yourself and your day to day life
  • Have a positive outlook and are realistic about what can be achieved
  • Have finished having children
Mr Mutimer regularly performs post pregnancy rejuvenation surgery. We advise anyone considering a Mummy makeover to schedule a consultation with Mr Mutimer so that he can assess whether you are a good candidate.  If you would like to find out more information, feel free to give us a call on 03 9592 0522 or submit a confidential enquiry via our website.

treatment for excessive sweating

Well summer is almost over and what a warm one it has been.  For some people (approximately 1% of the population) the typical thing we like to grumble about during the warmer months (sweating a bit too much) is a year round complaint.

Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) is a condition that affects both men and women equally. More extreme cases of hyperhidrosis can be quite debilitating – resulting in the need to change outfits multiple times a day, limiting social and work life opportunities and may cause low self-esteem. The condition is not limited to the warmer summer months when the body naturally has to work a little harder to cool itself down.

Hyperhidrosis is most common on the palms of the hands, soles of the feet and in the under arm area. Our body sweats as a natural cooling mechanism, hyperhidrosis occurs when one’s body produces more sweat than is necessary.  

There are several excessive sweating treatment options available however before a treatment plan is developed medical causes must always be ruled out.  One of the most popular treatment options for excessive sweating is injections into the area, which reduce excessive sweating dramatically, targeting the specific glands that are the source of the problem.

These injections work by blocking the chemical signals from nerves that stimulate sweat production. When the signal stops, so too does the excessive sweating. This treatment is most common in the under arm area and to treat excessive sweating of the forehead.  Treatment is very effective – usually resulting in significant reduction in sweating that can last up to 6 months from just one treatment.

Treatment for excessive sweating at Brighton Plastic Surgery is performed by Mr Mutimer in his consulting rooms.  To find out more or to book a consultation submit an enquiry via our site or phone 03 9592 0522.
