The Mommy Makeover
The mommy makeover is a surgical procedure that focuses on all the areas of the body that are affected by pregnancy. The goal of this procedure is to restore the structure and elasticity to loose, saggy skin, in the areas of the breasts, nipples, abdomen, and waist. These procedures often include breast augmentation, breast lift, nipple adjustment, liposuction, and tummy tuck.
How Long Is The Recovery Time From A Mommy Makeover?
Generally speaking, your recovery time will depend on your body’s recovery rate and the number of procedures you have performed during your mommy makeover. The recovery time will be dictated by your most extensive procedure, usually the tummy tuck, and generally be approximately six weeks.
With a breast augmentation or breast lift, you would be able to return to work within several days, but it would be 6 weeks before you are free to return to lifting or strenuous exercise. Liposuction surgery patients typically can return to work in a few days with no lifting or strenuous exercise allowed for 6 weeks while the body heals. The tummy tuck requires that the patient be off from work for 3-4 weeks with lifting and exercise being restricted for 6 weeks as well. So, if your mommy makeover includes a tummy tuck, you can expect to be out of work and resting at home for 3-4 weeks and can return to a full menu of daily activities after your 6 week check-up with your surgeon.
