What is a Mommy Makeover Exactly?
A mommy makeover is a term used to describe a combination of procedures that help to restore a more youthful profile after pregnancy. Usually, a mommy makeover usually involves both a breast procedure as well as a tummy tuck. This can typically include any combination of breast surgery, including breast lift or breast reduction or possibly breast augmentation, as well as abdominoplasty, liposuction, body lift, and other body contouring procedures.
Your Mommy Makeover Recovery
Planning a “mommy makeover” is a big step and certainly one to take seriously. Literally thousands of women undergo that combination of procedures every year. As with every surgery, there is always pain associated and the worst tends to always be just the first few days. But don’t worry, pain medicine and muscle relaxers will help with the discomfort. With your combination of procedures, you will probably need to take the medicine regularly for the first two to three days, and then as you start to feel better you can taper off of the medicine. Usually by one week people are down to only one or two pain pills per day and are usually off completely within about ten days. Most people with a sedentary job can go back to work by about ten to fourteen days, but if your job is more strenuous then you may have to take off longer or go back to work with restrictions. By about four to six weeks after surgery you should be back to light jogging, aerobics and light lifting.
