If you’ve been dreaming of getting your pre-baby body back, you may want to consider a mommy makeover. Chances are you would like to find out more about the procedure, especially the recovery time. So let’s take a look at the required downtime for a mommy makeover.
Mommy makeover surgery
A mommy makeover refers to a combination of procedures that are done to resolve some of the cosmetic concerns that affect women as a result of pregnancy. If you have droopy or deflated breasts, a protruding tummy, or loose abdominal skin; you may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover.
What is the required downtime for a mommy makeover?
The recovery time after a mommy makeover ranges from 2-3 weeks. Some patients are able to go back to work after one week, but this should only be done after consultation with their plastic surgeon. However, heavy lifting and strenuous activity should be avoided for at least 6 weeks.
Downtime required after a mommy makeover varies for each patient, as it depends on the extent of the procedures, and the specific treatments included.
The most common mommy makeover procedures are a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift, and liposuction.
Patients can expect to experience some swelling and soreness in the days immediately after surgery. They will therefore have to rest for the first few days and arrange to get some assistance, especially if they have small children.
In order to get the best results after mommy makeover surgery patients should ensure that they adhere to the post-surgical instructions of their plastic surgeon, and get adequate rest.
