This cosmetic body contouring procedure is considered an invasive treatment and can surgically cover a large portion of your body. After a recovery period in the hospital, you will begin to rest and recover at home with the post-operative instructions we supply.
Recovering from this surgery is generally a gradual process. Moving around and walking upright will be hard the first week or so, and a step-by-step home healing protocol will be provided to help your incisions and sutures heal properly. Most patients find the healing phase can take about six months.
Even though your primary recovery could take months, most patients are able to return to a normal routine, including sedentary work and light household tasks, within a couple of weeks. Everyone recovers at a little different rate depending upon the combination of procedures that you choose. You will be required to avoid heavy lifting, strenuous activities, and repetitive motions for approximately six weeks. Working out should wait for around two months. You may return to the majority of your activities six weeks or longer after your mommy makeover with the swelling gone.
Three months following your mommy makeover, we will take your first official "post-op" photos when you are very close to your final result. After your mommy makeover, we will take your first official "post-op" photos when you are very close to your final result.
Your scars will continue to lighten and mature over the course of the next 18 – 24 months. In the end, this surgery at VIPS can be an amazing journey, providing you with renewed self-esteem once again.
