Tips For A Smooth Recovery After A Mommy Makeover

Stay-at-home or employed, single or married, mothers tend to be some pretty busy people. If you’re interested in a mommy makeover, you’re probably excited for the beautiful results it can provide. On the other hand, you’re probably thinking of the time it will take to recover after your procedure while still juggling the daily tasks of being a mom. At Ohio Plastic Surgery Specialists, we want you to feel prepared for every aspect of your experience, especially the recovery process. In this blog post, we’ll take a thorough look at caring for yourself after a mommy makeover.

Mommy Makeover Recovery Timeline

Mommy makeovers are tailored to each individual woman. The recovery time is based on the procedures that are performed. On average, women take around 2 weeks off to comfortably recover at home. This doesn’t mean you are bed ridden, but it’s important to focus on getting plenty of rest while optimizing your nutrition and healing.

It’s best to have the help of another adult during this time since you won’t be able to do any heavy lifting, including your children. If you do too much activity, you can stress your incisions or cause a healing problem. It’s best to follow our after surgery instructions and activity limitations to ensure healthy and expedited healing.

Swelling, bruising, and sensitivity are normal after the first few weeks of your mommy makeover. Swelling can be reduced by laying low and keeping your heart rate down. Too much swelling can be uncomfortable and may restrict the healing process. In can take a few weeks for the swelling to go down and you will gradually start seeing results.

Tips For A Healthy Recovery

After your mommy makeover, there are many things you can do to aid in your body’s healing process and achieve the results you’re looking for.

Don’t Smoke

This is an important aspect before and after your surgery. Smoking interferes with your body’s healing process and can lead to complications.

Eat Healthy Foods and Drink Plenty of Water

The following weeks after your surgery, you’ll likely have swelling and bloating. The recovery process is not a time to go on a strict diet or try to lose weight. Eating healthy foods like fruits and vegetables along with drinking lots of water will help your body heal faster.
