&Mommy Makeover Recovery Process

          How Long is Mommy Makeover Recovery?

          After a mommy makeover, expect to take at least 2 weeks off from work, maybe up to 6 weeks if your job is physically demanding.

          Recovery time depends on the number and type of procedures you have, so your surgeon will give you a personalized estimate.

          Here’s a basic recovery timeline:
          • For the first 2 weeks, you can do light daily activities.
          • After 8 weeks, you can start moderate exercise. Most swelling and bruising will be gone.
          • After 12 weeks, you can return to heavy exercise and lifting.
          • Final results are visible within 6 to 12 months when all swelling is gone.
          • Scars will continue to fade for up to 4 years.

          What Can I Expect After Surgery?

          Recovery times vary depending on the surgeries you choose, whether it's for your breasts, abdomen, or both. You might go home the same day, but sometimes the surgeon might suggest staying overnight if the surgery was extensive or if you have other health issues. Recovery usually takes one to four weeks. Most patients are very happy with their new look after surgery.

          • You may be able to resume some light exercise, but it is important to avoid any high-impact or strenuous activities.
