Tips For a Faster Recovery After A Mommy Makeover

Having children is an exciting time in everyone’s life, but it can also be terrifying and can be a lot of pressure for the mother. Whether this is mental pressure or pressure on the body, women do not have an easy time when it comes to having children. Don’t get me wrong, it’s totally worth it, but as we said, it can be a lot of pressure on the body and result in us not being happy with the way we look. This is why many resort to having some body touch-ups in the form of a mummy makeover.

The mummy makeover can consist of a range of different surgeries including breast augmentation, liposuction and tummy tuck in Manchester and can offer more areas as it completely depends on what you are after. The recovery from this can be sore, but you will be able to get back to normal life soon enough.  In this article, we will go through some tips for a faster mummy makeover recovery.

Have someone drive you home post-surgery

You are not going to be in any fit state to drive after surgery as you have been under general anaesthetic, so it is important to have someone drive you home. Whether this is a family member or friend, having someone drive you home whilst you are recovering and staying over the night is the best option. If you have nobody to help you, some practices have nurses to help you with recovery.

Book time off work

It can be all too tempting to carry on with being a mother to your family after surgery, but it is essential that you give your body time to rest. Lots of rest. The healing time can range between 1 to 3 weeks depending on the types of procedures involved with your mummy makeover. For the first 10 days, you should book time off work and have someone around the house to help you. Even if you feel well enough to get on with normal activities, your internal body will still be recovering. To avoid any complications, stay in bed and rest.

Don’t lift anything, including children

If you are a mum who loves to look after yourself by going to the gym and lifting weights, then this needs to stop for at least 2 weeks. The same goes with picking up your children, due to them being a little heavier than you can lift, this can in turn tear stitches and hinder recovery and results so it really is best to just relax and let everyone look after you for once. 

Take your medication as prescribed

Once you have had your procedure, you will be prescribed medication. Although you may not believe in medication or want to take it, it is highly recommended for the first couple of days after your surgery so that you can be as comfortable as possible for the next couple of days. After the first couple has days have passed, over-the-counter medication will suffice.
