Tips for a Faster Recovery from a Mommy Makeover

Liposuction in Phoenix, AZThe results from a mommy makeover can be life-changing, but you won’t be able to fully enjoy them until completing the recovery process. Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do to accelerate your recovery period following the mommy makeover procedure. Traditionally, the mommy makeover includes some combination of liposuction, breast surgery, tummy tuck and vaginal rejuvenation. Depending on your particular goals, you may choose to use breast augmentation, breast lift or breast reduction techniques for your mommy makeover. In any case, here are our tips for recovery!

1.   Prepare for Recovery Beforehand

If you can prepare for your recovery period before surgery, you’ll be well-situated when you return home from your procedure. This means you should get all of the supplies you’ll need in the first week or two of your recovery ahead of time. These might include food and drinks, appropriate clothing and whatever else you might need around the house. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure you clear your schedule so that you have no obligations following your surgery except for resting!

2.   Get Help Around the House

After arranging for someone to drive you home following your procedure, you may want to have a friend or family member around the house to help you during your recovery. This person can help you with household chores or other tasks that you will be unable to perform while you’re recovering. Furthermore, they’ll be able to care for you and provide you with assistance when needed.

3.   Rest as Much as Possible

Resting should be your top priority after a mommy makeover. This means no going to work, no exercise and no household chores. Unfortunately, this also means you cannot pick up your children or perform any similarly strenuous tasks. Any stress to the body can interfere with your recovery and may actually create injuries. Additionally, while you are getting your much-needed rest, be sure to sleep on your back with your head in an elevated position for optimal recovery.

4.   Follow Post-Operative Instructions

We have created these guidelines to ensure that you have a safe and smooth recovery, and following these instructions will get you through the recovery process as soon as possible.
