There are some things you should ask yourself before you have a mommy makeover. First, you need to research and discover what a mommy makeover entails. Typically, you can expect a tummy tuck and breast lift. If you plan on having more children, you may want to wait until you are finished having them before getting the surgery. As with any major surgery, it’s important to understand the risks associated with these procedures.
You should also understand the cost of the procedure. Fees can fluctuate depending on the experience of the surgeon, the hospital fees, and prescriptions. Many insurance plans don’t cover tummy tucks or breast lifts, as they are considered cosmetic. Surgeons may offer payment plans, so it is important to ask about payments and financing. Some insurance plans may cover a breast reduction if it is for medical reasons, such as back, neck, and shoulder pain.
Finding a reputable surgeon is key. Look for certain things when researching which plastic surgeon to choose. You should research the status of your surgeon with the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Your surgeon’s credentials should be valid, so don’t be afraid to ask about them.
