A “Mommy Makeover” combines surgeries for the abdominal area and the breasts into a single, post pregnancy procedure. The surgery normally includes a Tummy Tuck and breast surgeries such as a breast reduction, breast augmentation or a breast lift on its own or including implants. By performing the two procedures in conjunction, the patient will typically need less recuperation time, brings little additional risk and generally saves on costs. It’s a very effective – and efficient – approach to a refreshed look for busy moms!
Smart Preparation for a Mommy Makeover Helps Recovery Time Too
The Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery typically recommends a minimum of a couple weeks off from work after a Mommy Makeover. Parents of young children will require extra childcare at home while in the recuperation period. Patients are provided with doctor’s healing guidelines ahead of the surgery. Recovery from any form of surgery isn’t especially enjoyable – but equipping yourself with healthy and balanced habits before Mommy Makeover surgery can keep your spirits positive, levels of stress lower and help your body achieve maximum healing. It’s especially helpful to reduce your stressors, increase water intake, consume whole foods and be sure to get fresh air during the post-surgery healing phase. Some other helpful tips to get yourself and your home’s daily routine ready for your Mommy Makeover recover are:
- * Put together a chore list for your family before your surgery
- * Arrange for pet care if needed
- * Assign who will be picking you up from your cosmetic surgery at the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery and who will be able to help you once you’re back at home.
- * Get your home cleaned the day prior to surgery so you’ll feel organized and stress free upon returning from your procedure
