It is not uncommon for people to say after their mummy makeover consultation ‘I forgot to ask…’ or ‘I’m sure we talked about that but I can’t remember the details…’ While any reputable surgeon will guide you through the consultation, ensuring that you understand the process and the risks involved, there are bound to be further questions that you would like answered so planning ahead can be very useful.
Do your research
In Essex surgeon Mr Maisam Fazel’s experience, patients who come to their mummy makeover consultation having done some research on the procedures involved get more from the session. This is largely because there is quite a lot of information to absorb and, adept as Mr Fazel is at putting his patients at ease, feeling nervous at this first session is quite normal. If you have read up on what is involved before, during and after a mummy makeover, you will have a foundation of knowledge on which to add all new information. Some people find writing a list of questions beforehand is a great help; others bring a friend or family in to take notes so they don’t have to worry about remembering everything on the day.
What do I need to know?
You need to understand what you are about to embark on so ask about the procedure, how you can prepare and how you should expect to feel afterwards. Ask how much time out you need to take and how you can help your recovery. Ask about your surgeon’s qualifications and experience and about the safety standards of their clinic. An ill-informed decision is not a confident one; to this end, Mr Maisam Fazel encourages his Essex mummy makeover patients to ask as many questions they need – and reassures them they can also follow up with further enquiries after their consultation.
