Where do I start for a mommy makeover?

Whether you have had children, lost a great deal of weight, or have developed loose skin and other concerns associated with aging, a mommy makeover may be right for you. If you have been thinking about mommy makeover surgery but aren't sure where to begin, we are here to help. The first step in mommy makeover surgery is scheduling a consultation so that you can learn more about whether a mommy makeover is right for you. Not only that, but mommy makeover consultations also give you an opportunity to evaluate a potential surgeon.

What questions should I ask a mommy makeover surgeon?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Kelishadi will take ample time to answer any questions you may have about mommy makeover surgery. While every woman's situation and goals are unique, there are some general questions that can be helpful to have prepared, including:

  • How long will my mommy makeover recovery be?
  • What procedures can be included in a mommy makeover?
  • Am I a good candidate for mommy makeover?
  • Where will my mommy makeover scars be?

Additionally, patients should not hesitate to ask questions about the surgeon and their experience. Some of the specific considerations patients should keep in mind — and ask questions about — when choosing a mommy makeover surgeon include:

Education, training, and certification

There's no question that having a board-certified plastic surgeon can help to ensure a safer and more successful procedure. Don't hesitate to ask questions about your surgeon's level of expertise, how many mommy makeover cases they've performed, and more.

Patient results

Browsing a surgeon's mommy makeover before-and-after photo galleries and reading past patient reviews can also help patients get a better idea of what results may be possible for them.

What to expect

It is important that patients feel comfortable and confident about their choice of surgeon and even practice. Feel free to ask questions about what to expect throughout the consultation process and recovery, including when the office is available to take calls, how communication is handled, and other aspects of care.

By carefully evaluating and researching your options for a plastic surgeon — as well as listening to your gut and considering where you feel most comfortable and confident — you can help set yourself up for a more efficient, successful, and even enjoyable process.
