What is the Recovery Time for a Mommy Makeover?

There’s no denying that pregnancy is a wonderful life experience. It allows you to bring a miracle into this world. In a perfect world, you’d go through pregnancy without changing your body. The reality, however, is that most women notice dramatic changes in their bodies after giving birth. 

While you may be able to lose some of your pregnancy weight and improve your body through diet and exercise, a mommy makeover can give you the dramatic results you’ve been longing for. Keep reading to learn what a mommy makeover is and what you can expect from the recovery process.

How a Mommy Makeover Works

At its core, a mommy makeover is a group of procedures that can help you meet your aesthetic goals after pregnancy. It can resolve sagging, stretching, and the common issues childbirth often causes. A mommy makeover may combine a breast procedure, tummy tuck, and liposuction. It can be designed to help you meet your unique goals.

Once you’ve undergone a mommy makeover, you can expect a flatter midsection, perkier breasts, less fat, and a toned physique. Most important, however, you can enjoy greater confidence in and out of clothing.

Dr. Gonyon encourages women to wait at least six months after pregnancy before they undergo a mommy makeover procedure. This is because your body needs some time to adjust after you’ve given birth.

Recovering From a Mommy Makeover

Your recovery period will depend on the particular procedures you receive. In most cases, however, patients take about three weeks off from work. You will have to plan to have your partner or someone else help you while you’re at home recovering. If you do have to pick up your child for any reason, you’ll have to do so from a seated position.

Although healing varies from patient to patient, you can expect your scars to fade over the year after your procedure. If you’d like, Dr. Gonyon can perform scar therapy treatments to expedite the healing process. Most patients report that the recovery process is often well worth it.
