There’s no denying the joys and rewards that motherhood brings, but pregnancy also takes a toll on your body.  Unfortunately, a healthy lifestyle won’t transform your droopy breasts and sagging tummy skin, but a mommy makeover can. If you would like to have the procedure done, but you’re wondering how long is the recovery for a mommy makeover, we answer that question below.

Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover is a combination of surgical procedures that are done to restore your pre-pregnancy appearance. The typical procedures include a breast lift/breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction.

Are you a good candidate
Candidates for a mommy makeover should be in good health, and should also be done having children.

How long is the recovery for a mommy makeover?
After a mommy makeover, patients generally experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Since a mommy makeover consists of several procedures, the recovery period can take 2-3 weeks.

Most women are able to return to work after 2 weeks, but this may be longer for those with jobs that require a lot of physical activity. Doctors generally advise patients to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activity for at least 6 weeks.

While there are some guidelines relating to recovery, every woman is different, so it’s important to abide by your surgeon’s post-op instructions, and also listen to your body.
