A Mummy Makeover consists of one of three combinations of operations.
TUMMY TUCK AND BREAST LIFT
A Tummy Tuck to take the evidence off your waist. A Breast Lift to remind gravity that she’s not the boss
What is involved?
A PRIVATE CONSULTATION WITH YOUR SURGEON
Your initial consultation will take about an hour and will be with your surgeon. This gives you and your surgeon the time to help you make the right decision for you, based on your body type, your lifestyle, and your expectations.
book and prepare for surgery
When you’re ready we book in your procedure. At Re. we believe the preparation for the surgery, and the care you receive after the surgery is as important as the procedure itself. It’s why we developed a special whole-of-journey program called Re.Care.
DAY OF PROCEDURE
You will wake up in the recovery bay of the hospital and your breasts and tummy will feel swollen but comfortable. You’ll be wearing your post-surgical bra and tummy garment to support your new breast and tummy shape. Most women will stay 2 nights in hospital.
THE EARLY DAYS
The first 48-72 hours are mildly uncomfortable but will be well controlled with pain medication. It is ok to shower and get your dressings wet and you can sleep in any position that is comfortable.
By week 2 you can begin to ease back into light physical activities. Most women are able to comfortably start driving
your recovery journey
You would be back to your normal daily routine and enjoying your new shape. Normal post-operative bruising and swelling should be gone, and your scars will begin to fade and diminish. You are able to fully resume normal exercise.
At the end of this period you will have your first complimentary laser treatment.

Not quite sure? here’s some common questions …
Pregnancy can take a toll on our bodies, affecting our breasts, tummies, legs and more. After nine months—or more, if breast feeding—you are probably longing for your pre-baby body. A mummy makeover can give you back your shape where diet and exercise have not worked.
A Mummy Makeover, addresses a woman’s post-pregnancy body issues in a single-session surgery that typically combines the following:
- Tummy Tuck
- Breast Surgery – Lift or Augmentation
From a cosmetic standpoint, Mommy Makeovers address pregnancy-related changes in both the breasts and the tummy. The surgery aims to take care of two of the biggest post-pregnancy complaints in one operation. The benefit of combing the operations is that it only requires one anaesthetic, one trip to hospital, one recovery period, one time away from the people you love.
Just about any woman who is in general good health and is looking to improve the tone and shape of her physique could be a good candidate for a mummy makeover. That said, there are a few additional factors that can determine whether a mummy makeover might be right for you at this stage of life.
- Are you finished having children?
- How long has it been since you’ve had your last child?
- Are you currently breastfeeding?
- What are your appearance goals?
It is best if you are finished having children and done with breastfeeding.
All surgery leaves scars. Most scars will fade in time, about 6-12 months, but the scars will be there in some form forever. Keep in mind that not everyone makes the same kinds of scars, this is largely genetic. Some people make pale, thin scars, while others tend to make thicker scars. Breast scars and tummy scars are generally excellent. We use silicone taping and laser treatments to ensure you get the best possible scars.
A mummy makeover will leave a scar on your breasts (the exact type depends on whether you need a reduction a lift or an implant) as well as a scar going from one hip to the other along your lower abdomen.
Yes, although it depends on your level of insurance cover and which combination of operations you need. We will provide you with any item numbers that apply at the time of your consultation.
Whilst all surgery carries some risk, combining a tummy tuck and breast surgery does not significantly increase your overall risk.
With modern techniques, qualified anaesthetists and accredited state of the art hospitals you will be in safe hands.
Think of the difference between doing everything at once compared to two separate operations like the difference between flying from Melbourne to Perth and flying from Melbourne to Perth with as stopover for 6 weeks in Adelaide (no offence to our South Australian friends).
