Four Important Questions to Ask at a Mommy Makeover Consultation (Part 2)
A mommy makeover is an exciting way for a woman to get her pre-baby body back, and feel more attractive, more confident and sexier! But a mommy makeover is not a “one size fits all” procedure. Every woman’s body is different – and pregnancy and childbirth affect woman in many different ways.
At our Detroit area plastic surgery practice, every mommy makeover is customized to address each woman’s unique “trouble spots” – ensuring we chose the procedures that are best specifically for her. To help you and your plastic surgeon determine which procedures are right for YOU, here are 4 important questions to ask during your mommy makeover consultation.
(3.) What Mommy Makeover Surgical Techniques do You Use?
Once you decide which specific procedures you want to combine into a mommy makeover, you and your plastic surgeon need to discuss the specific surgical techniques that will be best in your situation.
Not all surgeons, and not all surgical techniques, deliver equally spectacular results. Only trust your mommy makeover to an experienced and board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Ali, who has performed hundreds of successful mommy makeovers.
For example, different techniques can result in greater or lesser amounts of scarring. Ask your plastic surgeon where the incisions will be placed, and how long they will be. Make sure he uses the most advanced techniques to minimize scarring while still delivering excellent results.
(4.) What will My Mommy Makeover Recovery Time Be?
Unless your kids are grown, moms have to balance anything they do for themselves with making sure their kids are cared for first and foremost. And, of course, many dedicated moms also have jobs in the workplace as well.
So it is important that you understand what the parameters of your recovery will be. In order to heal rapidly, painlessly and without complications it is essential that a patient have the resources in place to allow them the necessary recovery time.
The length of a patient’s recovery will depend on the type and number of surgical procedures that they have done.
Patients need to take it easy and avoid heavy lifting (including lifting babies, children & groceries) and housekeeping for two to three weeks. There is also typically some pain, swelling, bruising and tightness during this first stage of recovery, which may require pain medication. So driving is also out (and napping is in!) while you are taking pain meds during recovery.
Most women will also need to take anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks off work to recover from a mommy makeover.
