Many moms wish to restore their pre-baby body after childbearing (whether they have their children six months or 18 years ago).
When deciding to have a Mommy Makeover, you may be a bit nervous before your consultation. Just like any surgery, it is okay to feel some anxiety before the procedure, whether due to excitement over your anticipated new look or preoperative stress.
Learning what the surgery can realistically address and asking the right questions during your Mommy Makeover consultation can make all the difference. You want to undergo surgery feeling completely prepared for what is ahead and with sufficient peace of mind that everything will turn out okay.
What Happens During a Mommy Makeover Consultation?
Your Mommy Makeover consultation offers you the unique opportunity to gather information on every possible aspect related to the procedure.
From meeting the plastic surgery team for the first time to discussing your medical history and goals, including your treatment options, recovery, and the cost and financing options for the procedure, you can expect to learn a lot.
We often suggest bringing a notepad with you to jot down any important bits of information. This will help you retain all the knowledge you receive during your consultation.
Patients should come prepared to discuss their general health status and any relevant medical conditions or risk factors they may have.
Discuss Your Goals for Surgery
What are some of the improvements you would like to see?
Your plastic surgeon will take the time to have a thorough conversation about your goals and plans after surgery while ensuring you have set realistic expectations of the procedure’s outcome.
During your consultation with one of our experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons, a physical examination will be conducted to evaluate your concerns and determine which procedures are right for you, depending on your needs, physical characteristics, and cosmetic goals.
Mommy Makeover surgery combines many different plastic surgery techniques, including:
