Preparing For Your Mommy Makeover
Many of Dr. William Bruno’s Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and West Hollywood mommy makeover patients have never had surgery before, so they are understandably curious and sometimes nervous about what their procedure will entail. That’s exactly why Dr. Bruno and his team do their very best to set your expectations and put your mind at ease.
On the day of your surgery, you’ll arrive at the designated surgery center having fasted since midnight or 12 hours, whichever is longer. Fasting before elective surgery is important because having food in your stomach can complicate receiving general anesthesia, the strong sedative you’ll receive for your surgery to put you to sleep, and make you completely unaware of what is going on.
When the time is right, you’ll be called back to the preoperative room to be prepped for your surgery by a team of nurses and medical technicians. Here you will change into your surgical gown and have your vitals monitored to ensure you are ready for your surgeries.
What Is A Mommy Makeover Like During Surgery?
After you are prepped for your mommy makeover, you’ll walk into the operating room. Here, you’ll be placed under general anesthesia by a licensed anesthesiologist, who will also monitor your vitals throughout the surgery to ensure your overall health and safety. After all, that is Dr. Bruno’s primary concern for you.
Once you are under general anesthesia, Dr. Bruno will get to work. The exact order of your combined procedures depends on the unique surgical plan Dr. Bruno has prepared for your specific case.
For most Beverly Hills and Hollywood moms, a mommy makeover is an outpatient combination procedure*. After surgery, you will be monitored for any possible complications and sent home to recover once you feel well. Dr. Bruno recommends that a friend or loved one come to pick you up after surgery, as you will not be able to drive yourself home due to the strong general anesthesia you received for your surgery.
What Should I Expect In Terms Of Recovery After A Mommy Makeover?
Depending on the procedures you’ve chosen for your mommy makeover, your recovery may include:
Post-mommy makeover surgery, you will have several follow-up exams with Dr. Bruno as you heal to ensure your complete recovery.
