How Soon for Surgery After Consultation

+3

You can have surgery as soon as you have adequately prepared, for example:

  • No blood thinners (aspirin, ibuprofen, Vtamin E) for 14 days before surgery
  • Medical clearance (your doctor will need to review some blood tests to be sure you are safe for surgery)
  • Home preparations: meal preparation, laundry, etc. You won't be shopping, cooking, cleaning for at least 10-12 days.
  • Support: Someone to take care of you for 2-3 days; someone to take care of your children for 4-5 days

How long after consultation should you have surgery

+3

The first priority is that you are in good overall medical health before considering a mommy makeover. You will need to be seen by your primary care physician to have medical clearance prior to surgery. After your consultation you should meet with the surgeon one more time, perhaps a week later so that you can ask addtional questions that were not addressed at the first visit.  You may also want to meet with more than one plastic surgeon to determine which surgeon is right for you.

You could have surgery within days or within weeks/months of your consultation depending upon the schedule of your surgeon and yourself.

There is no specific time frame between consultation and surgery, but you do need to be in good health (no smoking and off all aspirin/motrin products). Please take your time and don't rush into an elective procedure.

Time for a mommie makeover

+3

Typically there will be labwork needed prior to your surgery.  We need to see this labwork with enough time to make a change and repair things once they're discovered.  Doing the labs on the day of or prior to surgery is a moot point because it implies that either your surgery goes or doesn't go.  Minimum after your consult you probably need at least a couple of weeks.  That's a ballpark estimate because if you're totally and completely healthy then there may not even be a need for labs.  In my practice I would.

How Soon After Consultaion Can I Have a Mommy Maover?

Once you have had a consultation and the surgeon and you have agreed on the specifics of the surgery it will depend almost entirely on his schedule and yours and how they fit together. It could be 2-3 weeks or longer depending on your state of health medications, etc.. In our office, if you want to have the procedure as soon as possible our scheduling surgery will put you on a special list to be called if an early time opens up. This may happen because the previoulsy scheduled patient came down with a cold or has some family issue that requires they postpone the surgery. I think most offices will do that for you. If you are at an office where they can get you in tomorrow, you may want a second opinion.

Mommy makeover

+2

Provided you are in good health, a non-smoker, and there are no medical issues that need to be sorted out, your mommy makeover could potentially happen as soon as:

1)  you and your surgeon can agree on a surgery date, and

2)  you complete any pre-operative testing and teaching your surgeon requires.

Mommy Makeover scheduling

+2

The factors that limit Mommy Makeover scheduling are:

1.  Breast feeding, should be 6 months after breast feeding is finished, to make sure the size and droopiness of the breasts is stable.

2.  Physical exam with your doctor, including any tests the doctor feels are necessary

3.  Blood tests

4.  Your surgeon''s schedule.

5.  Your health.  Have you made reasonable efforts to lose the baby weight?  Are you done having children

Depends on your health and your surgeons availability

+2

It really depends on your surgeon and your health.  If you are healthy and have a BMI lower than 30 and do not need any further medical clearance the time between your initial consultation and surgery really depends on your surgeons schedule and surgery availability.  In our pracitce we typically are booked out for surgery 2 months in advance.

Wait time

+1
It depends on what work up you need before having surgery and finding a time in your and the surgeon's schedule that works for both of you. Schedule a consultation and you'll have a much better idea of when you will be ready for surgery.
