Many of the women fortunate enough to bear children struggle with their self-confidence after giving birth. At Athena Plastic Surgery, we believe every mother should be confident in her skin. That’s why we’re proud to offer mommy makeover procedures, designed to restore the appearance and shape of your body post-pregnancy. Today, we’re talking about how you can prepare for this life-changing procedure.
Decide Which Procedures are Ideal for You
A mommy makeover can include a number of procedures, depending on which features you’re looking to improve. Common procedures include breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck and liposuction. During your initial consultation, our experts can help you determine the best procedures to help you achieve your unique aesthetic goals.
Freeze Several Healthy Meals
After your mommy makeover, you’re not going to want to cook for a while. But motherhood doesn’t stop just because you make time to invest in yourself. Prepare and cook several healthy meals, then divide them into servings and freeze them. After your procedure, all you or your family has to do is pop the pre-portioned meals into the oven and enjoy.
Get Your Prescriptions Filled
Before your mommy makeover, you want to get all your prescriptions filled. Prepare yourself a comfortable room to recover in and keep your prescriptions and water within easy reach.
Avoid Taking Certain Medications
To ensure the best outcome for your mommy makeover, it’s important to avoid taking certain medications for a set amount of time before your procedure. During your initial consultation, we’ll give you a list of medications and supplements to avoid before your procedure.
To be the ideal candidate for a mommy makeover, it’s important that you can commit to not smoking before and after your procedure. This is because cigarettes contain nicotine, which raises your blood pressure.
Receive a Medical Evaluation
Before your procedure, we need to make sure you’re healthy enough for surgery. A medical evaluation can also help us decide the best procedures for your body type and situation.
