New moms have been overworking their bodies throughout pregnancy and the experience of being a new mom around the clock with sleepless nights, they deserve to have their body back in shape and feeling great after their pregnancy is complete. With a Mommy Makeover, women in Houston can restore their pre-pregnancy body with a combination of techniques and procedures. Whether it’s a tummy tuck, a breast lift, liposuction, a butt lift or any combination. A Mommy Makeover is just what many new moms need to feel confident in their appearance and confident again renewing that pre-pregnancy glow.

Preparing for a Mommy Makeover is not extensive, and only requires minor adjustments to normal lifestyle. When patients visit with Dr. Craig, they will have plenty of one on one time to discuss their concerns and goals so that their expectations are set properly and the patient is comfortable with what to expect throughout the process. Here are some of the best tips for preparing for a Mommy Makeover.

Work On Being Healthier Beforehand

Having a Mommy Makeover will yield the best results for patients that begin the process in the healthiest state possible. This doesn’t mean every patient has to be in perfect health, but it does mean they should eat a healthy diet, exercise often, and not smoke. A Mommy Makeover is designed to sculpt and tone the body in different ways, it is not a replacement for a proper diet and exercise regimen. When patients in Houston are thinking about getting a Mommy Makeover, the best thing to do is visit Dr. Craig for a consultation to discuss healthy habits to help yield the best results.

Mental Preparation Tips

Mental preparation simply means thinking about the end result and what will need to be done between now and then. Dr. Craig encourages patients in Houston to think hard about their goals. For example, some patients want their body to look how it did before they were pregnant while others may want to take it a step further with their Mommy Makeover and transform their body to how they may have always visualized. When patients know exactly what they want and prepare accordingly, they will be much more pleased with the results.

Be Prepared At Home

Patients should expect to take a few weeks off of work following their Mommy Makeover. Be prepared by arranging help from a family member, friend, neighbor or even consider hiring a nanny temporarily. Patients will have restrictions on how much they can lift and need to relax as much as possible during the first couple of weeks after their Mommy Makeover, so ensure the household and family is taken care of prior to a procedure.
