A mummy makeover, also called an hourglass mommy makeover, is an ideal procedure for those seeking to transform their body after the effects of pregnancy and childbirth, or following drastic weight loss. The hourglass mummy makeover surgery is a variation of the standard mummy makeover package, consisting of a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast surgery as well as fat transfer to the hips. By enhancing the curves of the breasts and hips while cinching in and contouring the waist, patients can enjoy a highly desirable hourglass figure.
Procedures In An Hourglass Mummy Makeover
An hourglass mummy makeover typically consists of the following package of complementary surgeries:
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
After pregnancy and childbirth, many women are left with loose skin around the stomach and have damaged abdominal muscles that can cause medical issues such as back pain. An hourglass tummy tuck surgery can treat these issues by permanently excising lax skin and repairing muscle separation, creating a flatter, stronger abdomen. In doing so, associated medical conditions are alleviated.
Liposuction can be used to remove excess fat that develops as a result of weight gain during pregnancy. This is typically used in targeted areas such as the abdomen, thighs and hips, where stubborn fat often accumulates and is resistant to lifestyle changes. By using liposuction, patients can permanently remove fat, enjoying a more defined and toned figure.
A mummy makeover typically includes a breast augmentation to replace lost volume in the breasts following breastfeeding. This can be done using fat transfer or implants, or with Dr. Tillo’s renowned composite breast augmentation procedure.
Alternatively, many women opt for a breast lift to lift sagging which can also be common after pregnancy and breastfeeding, or combine the procedures for a comprehensive transformation of the breasts.
Fat Transfer to the Hips
Many patients want to know whether a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) can form part of their mummy makeover package.
The fat transfer procedure performed during an hourglass mummy makeover involves moving fat from one part of the body and transferring it into the hips only, whereas a full BBL involves injecting fat into both the hips and buttocks.
Fat transfer to the hips helps to correct the appearance of hip dips, and can be particularly beneficial for women after pregnancy who want to further enhance the contours and curves of their body.
Hourglass Mummy Makeover vs. Traditional Mummy Makeover
The key difference between an hourglass mummy makeover and a traditional mommy makeover is that the hourglass option also includes fat transfer to the hips, which presents a range of unique differences:
An hourglass mummy makeover provides more comprehensive results by adding volume to both the breasts and the hips while contouring the stomach. This further enhances the body’s curves and creates the desirable hourglass shape.
Level of Invasiveness
The level of invasiveness of an hourglass mummy makeover is usually similar to the standard mommy makeover, as the transferred fat is collected via the liposuction procedure. Injecting the fat into the hips is minimally invasive and only requires a series of small additional incisions around the area.
Skill of Surgeon
Combining four surgical procedures requires exceptional surgical skill and experience. In addition, fat transfer alone requires extensive knowledge so the procedure can be completed both safely and to a patient’s full satisfaction.
Benefits Of An Hourglass Mummy Makeover
An hourglass mummy makeover has several unique benefits:
- The combination of procedures helps patients achieve more defined curves for their breasts and hips
- By adding volume to the breasts and hips, the stomach appears more toned in contrast.
- Adding curves to the breasts as well as the hips while removing loose abdominal skin creates a deeply desirable hourglass silhouette.
Who Is A Good Candidate For An Hourglass Mummy Makeover?
An hourglass mummy makeover can improve the appearance of hip dips by adding volume to the area.
In addition, transferring fat to the hips can enhance the curves of the body while intensifying the contouring effects of a tummy tuck in contrast.
Overall, this set of procedures creates an hourglass figure that many women wish to have.
If you wish to undergo an hourglass mummy makeover, you will need to have an adequate amount of fat in your body to be harvested for transfer to the hips. In addition, you will need to have a BMI below 30 to undergo any excisional surgeries, which includes a tummy tuck and breast surgeries. To find out your BMI, use our handy BMI calculator.
Hourglass Mummy Makeover Recovery
Recovery from an hourglass mummy makeover is similar to that of its traditional counterpart. Patients can expect to return to work within 1-2 weeks, and begin light exercise after 3-4 weeks. However, a full recovery can take up to 8-12 weeks, depending on the combination of procedures chosen.

How painful is an hourglass mummy makeover?

Can you get an hourglass figure with a tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck will remove excess skin from the abdomen, contouring and flattening the abdomen. This cinched appearance around your waist can accentuate the curves of your hips and breasts, creating an hourglass figure.
Will I have a smaller waist after an hourglass mummy makeover?
After your tummy tuck and liposuction, your abdomen will be free from lax skin and fat deposits, meaning your waist will be smaller.
