How Long Does It Take to Recover from a Mommy Makeover?

Your recovery time will largely depend on the types of procedures you undergo.

Breast augmentation and liposuction surgeries typically have a quicker recovery time compared to a tummy tuck. Patients who undergo breast augmentation can begin to return to most activities after approximately four weeks while liposuction patients can plan on a two-week recovery period.

For a tummy tuck, patients should refrain from any strenuous activity for up to two months to allow for proper healing.

How Can I Heal Faster After a Mommy Makeover?

There are two things patients can do to ensure a speedy and full recovery.

  • First, patients should stick to a balanced diet. A multivitamin each day can also help the body get the nutrients it needs to recover from the surgery.
  • Second, and most important, patients should adhere closely to their doctor’s recovery instructions, such as refraining from lifting heavy objects. Failure to follow prescribed advice could result in poor outcomes, which could mean additional surgery – as well as more expenses and downtime.

If you are ever unsure about what you should or should do following your mommy makeover procedure, ask your doctor immediately.
