A mommy makeover isn’t a one-size-fits-all package; it’s a compilation of procedures that most women need after going through child labor or years of breastfeeding. Your mommy makeover package is designed for you, so you can pick and choose which procedures are ideal for your body. Typical mommy makeover packages include:
Dr. Miles only performs local sedation, therefore, procedures will typically require more than one surgery.
Your recovery period depends on which procedures you’re having done and how long it takes for you to heal. Expect to spend at least three to five days at home recouping after your surgery, although you might need more time to recover if you went through several invasive procedures.
You can get up and start walking around and doing light household jobs as soon as you feel ready. But because incisions need to heal, avoid lifting anything until Dr. Miles gives you the go ahead.
Once your mommy makeover is scheduled, it’s time to start getting ready. Make sure you stop taking any medications, including over-the-counter varieties, if recommended by Dr. Miles. If he gives you a prescription beforehand, get it filled.
You should also walk around your house and make some small changes to simplify your life after surgery. For instance, you may want to:
The more you do to get things organized beforehand, the easier it’s going to be for you to relax after surgery. Remember that you won’t be able to lift your children for several weeks after surgery. If you have young ones, have someone home with you who can help with diaper changes or bathtime.
Because mommy makeovers are customized to you individually, schedule a consultation to see what Dr. Miles can do for you. Book your mommy makeover consultation online, or give the office a call.
