Are you considering a Mommy Makeover? The Mommy Makeover is a surgical package that helps you restore your pre-baby body. The surgery is completely customizable based on your needs. However, the majority of surgeries have a tummy tuck, breast lift, breast implants, and liposuction in the package. When you have a Mommy Makeover, there’s a number of things you need to keep in mind. That’s why Cincinnati Plastic Surgery developed the Mommy Makeover surgery checklist to help you prepare for what needs to happen before and after your surgery.
Know the Procedures You’ll Have
As we mentioned above, the Mommy Makeover is customizable. That means you have control over the procedures included in your surgery. So, if you like the way your breasts look now but want volume added to your buttocks, you can opt for a Brazilian Butt Lift instead of breast implants. During your surgical consultation, you’ll sit down with Dr. Martin and go over the surgeries in your Mommy Makeover, so be honest about what you’re looking for in your surgery.
Make Sure You Don’t Have More Children
There’s no time limit associated with the Mommy Makeover, so if your youngest child is much older, you can still have the Mommy Makeover. However, we do recommend waiting to have the surgery until you’re done having children. That way, the results last as long as possible. But if you do get pregnant after having the procedure, it’s okay. Most likely, you’ll need to have the surgery again in the future.
Maintain the Results With Regular Exercise and a Proper Diet
If you’re looking to prolong the results of your Mommy Makeover, make sure to regularly exercise and follow a healthy diet. Weight gain can negatively impact the results of your Mommy Makeover, especially if you had a tummy tuck or liposuction. Additionally, you’ll want to be at your goal weight or close to your goal weight when you schedule your surgery. While you may lose a small amount of weight with the Mommy Makeover, it should not be used as a weight loss method.
Have a Good Support System in Place
After surgery, you won’t be allowed to lift heavy objects. That includes your children. If your children are still young, you’ll want to have a good support system in place to help with your kids. That can be your spouse, friends, or other family members. Make sure to have your support system in place before your surgery. That way, you do not have to scramble after your surgery to find people instead of focusing on healing.
If you want your pre-baby body back once you’ve had children, the Mommy Makeover is a perfect way to achieve it. And with the Mommy Makeover surgery checklist, you know what needs to happen before and after your surgery. At Cincinnati Plastic Surgery, Dr. Martin has spent his years as a board-certified plastic surgeon developing the techniques to perfect the Mommy Makeover.
