Though we perform highly successful surgeries all the time, there’s one surgery in particular that consistently inspires an outstanding level of satisfaction among our female patients — The Mommy Makeover! The Mommy Makeover typically includes a breast augmentation and/or breast lift with a tummy tuck and/or liposuction. However, we tailor each Mommy Makeover to a patient’s particular needs, offering vaginal rejuvenation, BodyTite skin tightening, skin resurfacing, and many other treatment options to help women safely achieve all their goals.
But there’s more! We’re eager to share one interesting tidbit about the Mommy Makeover, a fact that may surprise you! Almost always, our Mommy Makeover patients express how pleasantly surprised they are at the general ease and manageable downtime of their procedure. We bet you didn’t expect to hear that, did you?
A lot of women love the idea of a Mommy Makeover, but they dismiss it as an option because they fear it’s too cumbersome for their lifestyle. They envision weeks of being bedridden and in pain, and who wants that?
Though every surgery is unique to the patient, the Mommy Makeover may be easier than you think! Here are a few highlights to consider:
• Most patients can return home the day of their procedure, avoiding the costly overnight hospital stay.
• The last thing we want you to do is stay in bed all day. You’ll be instructed to keep up and moving to encourage healthy blood flow.
• You’ll need to wear compression garments to help your body heal and adjust to its slimmer contours.
• You’ll visit us for a post-op check in.
• Within a few days to a week, you’ll be able to go about your business, as long as you “take it easy,” avoiding strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for at least six full weeks.
That doesn’t sound so bad, does it? When you consider the end result — your dream body — a few weeks of “taking it easy” sounds pretty great!
