Mommy Makeover Recovery
Mommy Makeovers are intensive procedures that require a lot of rest and assistance through the initial weeks following surgery. Most women find recovery from mommy makeover surgeries like a breast reduction procedure or tummy tuck to be a slow process. Depending on the severity and number of procedures, it could take up to 6 months or a full year to see the final results.
With that being said, most patients after a mommy makeover Grand Rapids are able to go back to their normal routine within 3 to 4 weeks. It is recommended that patients take it slow during that time frame as walking upright can be difficult and scars are just beginning to heal.
Don’t worry, if you have questions about breast reduction recovery or healing after a BBL, Dr. Lakin and his team will provide you with all the necessary recovery information specific to your procedure.
Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover Surgery?
First and foremost, Dr. Lakin and the Illuum team would never perform a procedure that could be deemed unsafe. The best candidates are healthy, do not plan on having another pregnancy, and have exhausted all diet and exercise options. The Mommy Makeover procedure cannot be performed any sooner than six months after being done with breastfeeding. While the procedure would not affect another pregnancy, the pregnancy could alter the results of your procedure.
