With the kids back to school, now may be the best time to start having the conversation with your doctor about how a mommy makeover procedure would benefit you. If you’ve been interested in consulting about this popular all-in-one surgery, here are some questions you need to ask your doctor during your consultation:
- Am I a good candidate for this surgery? Your doctor will take a look at your health history and current medical conditions and concerns to determine whether you are a good candidate for surgery. It’s important to discuss if you are finished having children, whether you are currently breastfeeding and any other child-bearing questions. Ideally, you should be done having children for the best results, otherwise future pregnancies may negate surgical outcomes.
- What procedures would be included in my mommy makeover? As you consider this life-changing surgery, it’s important to consider your aesthetic goals and which procedures would help you achieve those goals. While surgery is tailored to each patient’s needs, the most common procedures in a mommy makeover are breast enhancement, tummy tuck and liposuction. Your personal goals along with the doctor’s recommendations will help determine the course of surgery.
- What techniques will be done? Once you’ve determined the specific procedures that will be included in your mommy makeover, you will want to discuss procedure-specific questions such as which breast implants would be best for you, the implant type and placement options and more.
- What is recovery like for a mommy makeover? The best part about a mommy makeover is that multiple procedures can be performed in one setting, which means one recovery period. This doesn’t mean that recovery will be easier, however. The length of recovery will depend on the number of and type of procedures included in your surgery. Many women take up to three weeks off to recover and will need help at home, especially in the early stages of recovery.
