Recovery from Mommy Makeover
A “Mommy Makeover” is a term used to describe multiple plastic surgery procedures that combine an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), breast enhancement (a lift, an augmentation or both) and liposuction during one session. It is called a “Mommy makeover” because this cosmetic procedure is usually performed on women after they have had their children and the effects of pregnancy have left their breasts, tummies, hips and thighs stretched out and sagging.
Though there is quite a bit to discuss and plan for prior to this procedure, there is also quite a bit post-operative that needs to be taken into consideration so that you heal properly and quickly.
Being a mom, it will be very normal for you to want to take care of everything as soon as you are home. You want to make sure the kids are taken care of, the pets have been fed, the dishes are washed and laundry done. However, in the first few days after having a “mommy makeover”, it is very important that you stay in bed and let your body recuperate. You must have someone to assist you for at least 2 or 3 days, making sure you take your prescribed pain medication and antibiotics (if given), that you stay hydrated and have your dressings checked. You will even need assistance getting in and out of bed to use the restroom. If you were not able to arrange a sitter for your children and pets for those first few days and your household is still too busy, you may want to consider spending your first few days at a post-op recovery facility. These are like really nice hotels that accommodate patients who have had cosmetic surgery.
Once the initial 2 or 3 days have passed after coming home from your mommy makeover, you will have clearance to perform minimal activity. Keep in mind, it will still be difficult and rather uncomfortable to use your arms much due to the swelling in your breasts and your tummy will be rather tender still. It will be best to have someone with you to still assist. You will still have drains in your incisions which prevent fluid buildup within the surgery site and you may still have a pain pump connected which delivers pain medication automatically.
Though there may still be significant bruising and swelling, after 2 weeks your plastic surgeon should clear you to resume light activity. Your sutures and bandages will have been removed and you should be past any risk of infection or complication. At this point you will notice an amazing transformation from sagging breasts and tummy to a youthful and rejuvenated body; though it will take approximately 4 to 6 months to see the final results.
If you seek a Mommy Makeover, as with any cosmetic surgery procedure, it is recommended to seek the advice of a professionally trained and experienced surgeon.
