Plastic Surgery – Preparing For Your Mommy Makeover
Are you all set for your mommy makeover? If yes, there are a few things that you need to double check. Regardless of whether you’re having the surgeries in a week or in six months, there are some things that you should have done.
If you’re still in the planning stages, the first things you should do involve making sure you’re at a good spot in your health. If you are overweight, you need to begin exercising and eating right to get to a healthy weight. First of all, these surgeries are not designed as weight loss methods. They are designed to help you re-contour your body.
In order for re-contouring to occur, the body underneath the skin needs to be a healthy one. Secondly, your body needs to be in shape in order to handle anesthetics and in order to heal in a timely manner, as free of complications as possible. Being healthy also includes not smoking. Smoking hinders your body from responding correctly to surgical procedures and can alter the effectiveness of anesthetics.
No matter what stage you’re in, doing research is a good idea. You need to know what you want to change about your body and how your doctor will accomplish those changes. Most mommy makeovers include a tummy tuck, some liposuction, breast lifts or implants and lifts to other areas of the body. You should know what of those you want done and your doctor’s preferred method.
Having a list of questions based on sound research will make your doctor know that you are serious about changing the way you look. Also, you may be uncomfortable with some things and it is important for your surgeon to know. Make sure to ask anything that’s on your mind. Even if you think your question is dumb, chances are your surgeon has heard it before and it is important that you be completely comfortable.
When you’re closer to actually having the procedures done, you will need to stop taking any over the counter medications, because they can have many affects that are not ideal for surgery. Blood thinners can cause complications and anything can affect the anesthetics you are given. A good surgery depends on proper anesthetics.
So any directions you are given, you must follow. If you don’t understand any part of it, call your doctor’s office and they will help you understand. Also make sure that you have someone to help you around the house as you will be in some pain and probably on a mild sedative while you are healing.
If you follow these basic steps, you will be on your way to a healthy recovery. Following the directions will ensure that your body will maintain your new look and will give you confidence to live your life the way you want to.
