Preparing for Mommy Makeover
Preparing for Mommy Makeover
While pregnancy and childbirth are the most wonderful experiences a woman can have, they can deform the mother's body. Even though some women can easily get back to their old form after giving birth, some cannot regain their old bodies. Mommy makeup is the most comprehensive plastic surgery that can help these women's bodies regain their pre-pregnancy shape. Mommy makeover is a large and complicated surgery that involves at least two or more plastic surgery procedures. Therefore, there are some things candidates should know before surgery.
Be Sure You Don’t Want to Have More Kids
Mommy makeover is an operation performed to eliminate the negative effects of pregnancy and childbirth. Therefore, the patient becomes pregnant again and gives birth to a child after the operation, the whole process will be restored and the effect of the surgery will be eliminated. To avoid this, you should make sure you don't want any more children before you decide on the mommy makeover procedure.
Follow a Healthy and Balanced Diet
Although the mommy makeover procedure will make thin some areas of your body, it is not a weight-loss operation. Indeed, it provides slimming by removing the excess skin and lifting the remaining. To get a perfect result from the surgery, you should adopt a healthy lifestyle, eat healthily and exercise. In this way, you will go into the surgery with your ideal weight and you will maintain this form after the operation. Remember that losing excess weight is undesired as well as gaining weight after surgery. If you lose excess weight, you may experience sagging problems again.
Stop Taking Certain Medications
Blood-thinning drugs such as aspirin must be stopped before surgery. For this reason, in your first meeting with your doctor, you should specify the medications you use regularly and find out which ones you should discontinue before the surgery. Likewise, you should stop consuming vitamin E and herbal teas about a week before the surgery.
If you are smoking, you should quit at least 3 weeks prior to the operation. Also, remember that you cannot smoke for at least 2-3 weeks after surgery. Smoking may cause various complications both during and after surgery and may delay the healing of wounds.
Set Up Child Care
You know that you are undergoing a major surgery. You will be required to rest well for a few weeks after the operation and be limited to do some movements for a few months afterward. You are not supposed to raising your arms and carrying weights for a while, which means you won't be able to hold your children. Therefore, you should find a family member, friend, or caregiver to look after your children for at least 2-3 weeks after surgery. Do not forget to add this to your to-do list before the surgery.
Have Someone to Help You
As mentioned above, your movements will be restricted after surgery. You are going to need help with household chores, shopping, childcare, even your own personal care. After you are discharged, someone should drive you home and stay with you for a while to assist you. If your partner is working, you can ask another relative or friend to help you for a week or two.
