Recovery after a mommy makeover can be a stressful time for many, especially for young mothers who have a family to look after. However, recovery after a Mommy Makeover does not have to be a challenge or cause you unnecessary headaches.

There are a few little things you can do to speed up and simplify your recovery, to quickly enjoy your family and your new figure to the full.

Accelerate your recovery time after Mommy Makeover these three simple steps.

1. Combine surgeries into one Mommy Makeover

The big advantage of a Mommy Makeover is that you can combine several procedures into one operation. This means that you only have to undergo one anaesthesia and that you only have to recover from one procedure.

Your recovery after a mommy makeover, which usually combines abdominoplasty with breast surgery, liposuction, etc., may take longer than if you have only one surgery, but it will still be less than if you have to go through several healing processes for each surgery.

I always speak with my patients about whether and which procedures can be safely combined to achieve the desired aesthetic and functional results.

2. Keep discipline Follow medical instructions

As you know, it is always important to follow the instructions after an operation. This is especially important after a mommy makeover.

We give clear and precise instructions on how to care for your body and incisions after surgery. All these instructions are thought through in detail and will not keep you from your daily activities unnecessarily longer than necessary.

Following my instructions is essential for a quick and successful recovery. This will help prevent possible complications or infections after the operation. Post-operative check-ups are extremely important as wound healing is a long process and regular check-ups are of major importance especially in the early phases.

3. Moderate activity promotes regeneration

According to this type of combined beauty surgery, certain swellings and bruises are absolutely normal. It is essential that you get up and walk as soon as possible after the surgery.

This will circulate your blood, not only reducing swelling and bruising, but also preventing blood clots from forming. Sport, heavy lifting and strenuous activities should be avoided initially, but easy walking is highly recommended.
