Mommy Makeover Recovery
A compression garment will be given to each patient after surgery and is worn for the first several weeks to assist with swelling and fluid accumulation. Patients can experience significant pain and discomfort over the first week, as well as experience some swelling. The swelling tends to subside after the first three weeks post-surgery. A liquid or soft diet may be required for the first 24-48 hours after surgery. Patients can anticipate that their recovery will vary significantly between two and six weeks.
Patients generally feel well enough to return to work and other daily routine activities about two weeks after surgery. However, strenuous exercise should be postponed for four to six weeks after surgery. The results of the procedures will not be immediately apparent, they will take some time to fully unveil themselves, especially as the swelling and bruising subside. As the body heals over the next six weeks to three months, the patient will start to see full and more noticeable results.
