How to Prepare for a Mommy Makeover

Austin moms tend to focus on the day of the procedure, but there are a lot of things that patients can do before the procedure to make sure they get the best possible results. The key to making the most of your pre-operation time is to think ahead and plan. Here are a few tips.

  • Get help – Not only will you need someone to drive you home from the procedure, but you’ll also need someone to stay with you for at least 24 hours afterward. This is critical because you’ll need someone to bring you water, help you with your medication, eating, getting up and out of bed and also monitor you in the case of an emergency.
  • Got kids? – If you have young children, you’ll need to make sure that you have someone there to help you. Lifting, straining, cleaning, and any strenuous activity is prohibited for around two weeks.
  • Eat, drink healthy – Make sure that you’re eating and drinking healthy in the two weeks up to the procedure. This can help your body heal faster.
  • Stop smoking – Smoking can negatively influence your body’s efforts to heal, and it will also increase the risk of infection after your mommy makeover.

Austin mothers give their all for their children. We believe it’s time you do something terrific – just for you.
