5 Questions to Ask Before Your Mommy Makeover

Have you been considering a mommy makeover procedure, but unsure if it’s the right choice for you? Before embarking on this transformative journey, it’s important that you ask the right questions and be fully informed on what to expect from the experience. Here are five questions to consider before undergoing a mommy makeover: 

Am I a good candidate for a mommy makeover? 
Before scheduling a consultation, it’s essential to assess whether you are a suitable candidate for a mommy makeover. Factors such as overall health, post-pregnancy weight loss, and the impact of previous pregnancies on your body should all be considered. It is recommended that you be near or at your goal weight before surgery to better optimize your long-term results.  

    What specific procedures are involved in a mommy makeover? 
    Typically, a mommy makeover combines various surgeries such as tummy tuck, breast augmentation or lift, and liposuction. Learning about the details of these procedures can help you make informed decisions. We invite you to visit our YouTube channel to learn more about specific procedures such as Tummy Tuck and Breast Augmentation.  

      What are the potential risks and complications? 
      Like any surgical procedure, a mommy makeover carries potential risks and complications. During your consultation at MidAmerica Plastic Surgery, you will discuss this with Dr. Ryan Diederich and your personal Patient Care Coordinator to help you gain a better understanding of what to expect during and after the surgery. 

        What type of recovery can I anticipate? 
        Postoperative recovery is an important consideration for anyone undergoing a mommy makeover. Understanding the recovery process, including the duration, expected discomfort, and any necessary lifestyle adjustments, can help prepare you for the post-surgery period. Our team is dedicated to helping you through your recovery and are here for you should you have any questions about postoperative care. To reference our post-surgery information page, click here.  

          What realistic results can I expect?

By discussing realistic outcomes with your surgeon and understanding the potential limitations, you can ensure that your goals align with what can be achieved through the procedures. 

            A mommy makeover can be a life-changing experience for many individuals. By asking these five important questions and engaging in open communication with your plastic surgeon, you can make informed decisions and ensure that you are fully prepared for your surgical procedure.
