What to Expect at a Mommy Makeover Consultation

During pregnancy and after birth, the body goes through a lot of changes. And while moms are thankful for their children, they are often less appreciative of the physical changes they see in the mirror.

If this describes you, a mommy makeover could be the solution you need to help boost your confidence and regain your pre-pregnancy body. The first step in finding out if a mommy makeover is right for you is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. Here’s what you can expect at your mommy makeover consult.

A Discussion of Your Motivations and Goals

Critical to a good experience is knowing why you want surgery and what you hope to get out of it. As the client, you are in the lead. Come into your mommy makeover consult expecting to explain how you want to look and feel after the procedure and why you want this result. There are many reasons to get a mommy makeover, and all of them are valid.

Learning About the Options

One of the biggest benefits of a mommy makeover is that you choose the procedures you want.

A mommy makeover is not a single procedure. Instead, it is multiple procedures that can generally be done at the same time, addressing a multitude of concerns in one surgery. At the initial consultation, expect to learn about your choices, including non-surgical contouring.

Some mommy makeover options you might wish to consider include:

  • Breast Augmentation
  • Breast Lift
  • Breast Reduction
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Liposuction

Realizing how many choices you have available to you might feel overwhelming at first. However, it means that you can customize your mommy makeover to be 100 percent tailored to you.

A Deep Dive into Your Health History

Mommy makeovers may have a cute name, but they are very real medical procedures. To get one, you need to be in good health and meet certain criteria. During your mommy makeover consult, expect to go over your health history in depth. Some topics that will be covered include:

  • Current and prior medical conditions
  • Any surgeries you have had in the past
  • Allergies to medications
  • Current medications you are taking, including vitamins and supplements
  • Any non-surgical cosmetic procedures you have had done

It is a good idea to come to the consult with notes on the topics as well as any questions you have about the surgery to ensure you don’t forget anything when the time comes.

Diagnostics and Planning

Your plastic surgeon should be open and honest with you and guide you through each step of the process. You can expect things like photographs and digital projections of the results that can be achieved. Depending on the procedures you choose, you might also try out breast and butt sizers to get a clear understanding of how you will look.

By the time the consult is over, you should have a clear understanding of your problem areas, the right procedures to address those areas and the final results you can expect to see.

At your consultation, you should never feel rushed or pressured into making a quick decision. A quality plastic surgeon understands that this is a deeply personal decision. You should feel listened to and comfortable with your surgeon and their staff every step of the way.
