Preparing For Your Mommy Makeover Consultation

Posted May 05, 2024 in Mommy Makeover

Considering mommy makeover can be a very exciting time in a woman’s life. For many, this initiates an important step toward feeling like themselves after pregnancy, and it is normal to visualize life with an improved appearance. Dr. Mabourakh looks forward to meeting with patients to discuss their cosmetic goals. Here’s how you can best prepare for your consultation.

Ask Questions

During your mommy makeover consultation, you will be welcome to share all of your questions about the surgery. It can help some patients feel more organized to go into their consultation with a list of questions to ensure all of their concerns are addressed. Inquiries about the locations of incisions, recovery times, and when to expect results are common among those interested in mommy makeover surgery. For example, for makeovers that include tummy tuck, you might ask:

  • Will I need a mini tummy tuck or a traditional tummy tuck?
  • Is liposuction included?
  • How long will my scar be?

Evaluate Your Family Planning Goals

A mommy makeover is recommended to patients who have completed their families and are not planning on having more children. Most of the procedures included in a mommy makeover target the abdomen and breasts, as these are the areas that change the most during and after pregnancy. If you decide to get pregnant after you have undergone a tummy tuck or breast lift, the effects of carrying and breastfeeding a child can compromise your mommy makeover results, necessitating revisions in some cases. If you think you might like to have more children, Dr. Mabourakh may recommend delaying your surgery.

Understand that Mommy Makeover Is Customized

Mommy makeover describes a combination of procedures designed to improve several areas of the body after pregnancy. The exact procedures included will be determined by you, so it is helpful to know which procedures you might be interested in ahead of your consultation. Common mommy makeover procedures include:

Liposuction: Liposuction is a type of surgery that removes unwanted fat from targeted areas of the body with suction. It is ideal for improving the contours of the body.

Breast augmentation: Breast augmentation uses implants to enhance the shape of the breast, increasing fullness for a more voluminous look.

Breast lift: A breast lift is ideal for achieving a perky appearance after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Tummy tuck: This procedure eliminates a flabby abdominal appearance by removing excess fat and skin from the tummy, resulting in a toned appearance.
