How Long is Recovery from a Mommy Makeover?

You wouldn’t trade your motherhood status for anything in the world.

But, that doesn’t mean you don’t look back on your pre-baby body days wistfully. 

It’s the understatement of the century, but pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can really change a woman’s body. So if you’re trying to get your pre-baby body back, it’s important to note that you may need a little extra help apart from your diet and exercise routine.

That’s where the Mommy Makeover comes into play.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is the umbrella term given to a group of surgeries designed to help the patient return back to her pre-baby figure. Each Mommy Makeover is different, as it’s customized to the patient’s exact needs. Popular Mommy Makeover surgeries include:

  • Liposuction
  • Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Body lift
  • Dermal fillers
  • Chemical peel 
  • And more

Your plastic surgeon will work closely with you to determine which procedures can help you achieve your cosmetic goals.

How Long Will My Mommy Makeover Recovery Be?

Because the Mommy Makeover is so personalized to each patient, it can be difficult to put an exact figure on how long the Mommy Makeover recovery may take. However, you should plan on spending at least two weeks off from work or your normal routine so you can relax and recover. 

Depending on the specific surgeries you select, you should start seeing results within three to six months after your Mommy Makeover.

What Can I Do to Have a Healthy Recovery?

Can’t wait to get back on your feet after your Mommy Makeover? Here’s what you can do to have a healthy recovery:

  • Rest during those pivotal first two weeks after your procedure. Don’t push yourself to do things during this critical recovery time, as you could end up splitting incisions or delaying final results results.
  • Refrain from picking anything up over five pounds for the first month after your Mommy Makeover, especially if you’ve had a tummy tuck.
  • Attend all your follow-up appointments with your plastic surgeon to ensure you’re healing properly.
  • Get excited about your results!

I’ve always been in excellent shape. Due to my twin pregnancy I developed two hernia’s in my abdominal area and lost all volume and perkiness in my breast. I found that no matter how hard I worked out and ate healthy my stomach area always looked deformed. Since there was a tear in my abdominal muscles I wasn’t able to access the full strength of my core. I couldn’t be more pleased. Dr. Brenman made me feel comfortable. I felt prepared and well informed and in good hands. I felt like he was an honest doctor and so far my recovery has been amazing. I’m beyond thrilled with my results.
