10 Apr 2018 Tips to Speed Up Your Mommy Makeover Recovery
Recovery after any surgery can prove to be challenging, but recovery after a mommy makeover with little ones in tow is on another whole level. After surgery, you can expect to be limited in what you can and can’t do. But fortunately, there are ways you can speed up your recovery following your mommy makeover at Neaman Plastic Surgery so you can get back to focusing on motherhood and all that it entails.
Combine Multiple Procedures into One Surgery
It’s no secret that pregnancy and childbirth can take a toll on your body. A mommy makeover can help you regain your pre-pregnancy body with a combination of procedures, such as breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, and a tummy tuck. When possible, it is ideal to undergo multiple procedures at the same time. While combining several treatments into one surgery can make your recovery time longer than a single procedure, it will still be less than if you had to recover from each procedure individually. During your consultation, Salem plastic surgeon Dr. Keith Neaman will help you determine how many procedures you can safely combine into one surgery.
Follow Your Mommy Makeover Post-op Instructions
Sounds like a given, we know, but it is important enough to bear acknowledgment – following Dr. Neaman’s directions post-surgery is essential for a quick and successful recovery. Most complications are a result of not following post-op directions. If you undergo breast augmentation, you will need to wear a surgical bra. This is important as it helps your incisions heal and to keep your implants in place. Following a tummy tuck, you may have drain tubes placed to drain excess fluid. You will be instructed on how to care for them to prevent infections. Attending all follow-up appointments is important to ensure you are healing properly.
Get Up and Walk
Swelling and bruising are to be expected after invasive surgeries. To what degree depends on the procedure and your individual body makeup. To help reduce and minimize the amount and duration of any swelling and bruising, you should move and walk around as soon as possible following your surgery. This keeps your blood and fluids circulating, reducing swelling and the possibility of developing blood clots.
