How to Have a Smooth Mommy Makeover Recovery
While we don’t recommend pushing yourself to get back to your normal routine after your Mommy Makeover, there are some tips you can use to have a speedy and smooth recovery, including:
- Get help for those pivotal first two weeks of your recovery. In most cases, you’ll be unable to pick up small children, so it’s worth getting in-home childcare (whether in the form of a partner or family member) to help out while you recover.
- Go for gentle walks around the second or third week of your recovery, depending on your comfort level and your plastic surgeon’s advice. Gentle walking can improve your blood flow, plus it’s a good chance to get out of the house if you’ve been cooped up for a while.
- Follow Dr. Bull’s aftercare instructions very carefully! Your recovery plan is made just for you, so it’s important to follow every step. If you have any questions about your plan, let Dr. Bull know during your consultation or in any of your follow-up appointments.
Ultimately, it’s important to resist pushing yourself to recover faster than your body is willing to. A Mommy Makeover can be a huge surgery for your body, so if you need to recover over a longer period of time, listen to your body.
After all, it knows best!
