The path to motherhood can be both wonderful and challenging, but in either case, it brings major changes to the body. A mommy makeover offers a comprehensive solution to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy contours and boost her confidence.
If you're considering this transformative journey, it’s recommended you have a thorough understanding of the process, recovery, and potential outcomes.
Procedure Duration and Risks
A mommy makeover involves combining multiple procedures tailored to your needs. The time required depends on the specific procedures chosen, usually lasting four to six hours. While surgical procedures entail general risks, a mommy makeover has specific considerations, such as:
- Breast procedures carry a risk of asymmetry and nipple numbness.
- Abdominal procedures may lead to skin numbness, tissue irregularities, and potential blood clot risks.
- Breast implant complications, such as capsular contracture, are possible.
What to Expect During Recovery
After your mommy makeover procedures, you'll be provided with gauze, bandages, and support garments to aid healing and reduce swelling. Whether you've had breast enhancement or body contouring, these post-surgery measures contribute to your optimal recovery. Dr. David Bogue of David Bogue Plastic Surgery recommends an overnight hospital stay for your comfort and safety. By combining procedures, recovery time is consolidated, enabling you to return to your daily routine sooner.
Dr. Bogue's expert guidance includes post-treatment care instructions:
- Proper care for surgical sites
- Medication guidance for recovery
- Monitoring surgical sites and overall health
- Scheduling follow-up appointments
Allowing for Proper Recovery
Taking time off for recovery is crucial after a mommy makeover. Also, support from friends or family can be very helpful during this phase, especially if you have younger children. The typical recovery period lasts three to four weeks, a time in which work and strenuous exercise should be limited. Results of your mommy makeover become evident after healing (provided you maintain a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle).
Staying in touch with Dr. Bogue throughout your recovery is essential. His attentive team can address any concerns or complications promptly, ensuring your aesthetic goals align with your health and safety.
