The first step on the road to realizing your goals is scheduling your mommy makeover consultation. The second is preparing for it.

While this shouldn’t become intimidating, you do need to come to the appointment prepared. This means knowing what questions to ask, what items to bring, what to wear and more. So, what items need to be on your prep list for a mommy makeover consultation?

Ask The Right Questions

With a little preparation, you will be able to make the most of your mommy makeover consult.

Your consult is the first chance you get to ask all the questions you have about your mommy makeover, including how to prepare for your procedure, recovery and results. Come prepared with all of them! You might feel like you are bothering your plastic surgeon or taking up too much time, but don’t — this consult, and ultimately, the procedure, are about you. You need to feel knowledgeable and empowered heading into surgery, and any qualified plastic surgeon will be happy to do what they can to help you feel that way.

Questions you might want to ask include:

  • What do I need to do to prepare for surgery?
  • How long will the surgery take?
  • Will I stay in the hospital overnight?
  • How long will I need help at home?
  • What restrictions will there be during the recovery period?

Key Items

There isn’t a lot you need to bring with you to your mommy makeover consult. The most important items will be your health history information, any medications you are taking and results from lab work and scans, if applicable. You can also bring along photos you have found documenting mommy makeover results that are in line with your goals.

Bring the Right Clothing

When it comes to dressing for your consult, think loose, comfortable clothing that is easy to remove. You might want to bring along additional outfits that will help you better communicate your goals to the surgeon. Think bikini tops you want to fill out again or a pair of jeans you wish to wear but currently emphasize your unwanted excess skin.

Keep an Open Mind

Many clients walk into their mommy makeover consultation with a rigid expectation for how it will go and what the results of surgery will be. Make sure you know what you want but be ready and willing to keep expectations grounded in reality.

Willingness to Be Honest

Finally, you need to be ready to be as open and honest with your surgeon as possible. If you are still considering more children, say that. If they suggest something that doesn’t align with your vision, let them know. Remember: this is your procedure, so don’t worry about stepping on toes. Speak up to make sure you are well informed.
