If you’re like most women who have experienced pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding, then you’ve probably heard of the “mommy makeover” and wondered if it would be right for you. It’s an increasingly popular surgery because it tackles many concerns in one surgery with one recovery period.
Here are some of the top questions to ask your surgeon during your consultation:
- What procedures would make up my mommy makeover? While each surgery is tailored to each woman’s concerns, most mommy makeovers consist of a breast enhancement (augmentation with or without breast lift or breast reduction), tummy tuck and liposuction. Some women will opt for add-on procedures such as vaginal rejuvenation or a buttock lift.
- Am I a candidate for a mommy makeover? If women are in good general health and don’t have a lot of medical conditions that would concern her or her surgeon, then she could be a good candidate for a mommy makeover. It’s best if you are done having children, finished with breastfeeding and have realistic expectations for the outcomes for surgery. It’s important to share all details about your medical history, a list of all medications, vitamins and supplements that you take, and whether or not you consume alcohol or use tobacco.
- What is recovery like with a mommy makeover? Since this surgery consists of multiple procedures, you will want to talk to your doctor about how the procedures are performed and what you can expect before, during and after surgery. Be sure you understand the potential risks of each procedure and overall surgery.
During your mommy makeover consultation, your surgeon will perform a thorough physical exam, talk to you at length about your specific cosmetic goals and then come up with an individual plan for you that takes your aesthetic goals into account.
