What will my recovery be like?
Mommy Makeovers are performed in the hospital under general anesthesia. Most patients are required to spend one night in the hospital. You will be up walking the day of your surgery. At home, you will be required to avoid strenuous activities for a few weeks. You will be able to do all of your normal activities of daily living like bathing and brushing your teeth soon after surgery. Activities like cleaning or anything that requires lifting should be avoided. Most patients who work at desk jobs can return to work in 2-3 weeks. Strenuous exercise is resumed at 6 weeks.
