Recovery Tips for a Mommy Makeover

Mommy makeovers can be a completely transformative experience, and leave many women feeling more confident, secure, and self-assured. However, it’s important to know the right way to recover, especially when juggling recovery and motherhood. Here are tips on how to recover from a mommy makeover in a healthy and stable way.

Preparation Is Everything

Before and after picture of a mommy makeover by William FranckleThe first step of recovery actually takes place before the surgery. This can mean having all necessary prescriptions on hand, preparing a comfortable place to rest, and asking family members for help during recovery. Especially important can be ensuring that a loved one can care for the children since mobility will be limited for the first few days following the procedure.

Take It Easy

As with all surgeries, a mommy makeover is followed by a period rest to allow the body time to heal. For the first one or two days after the surgery, it’s important to rest as much as possible, with small breaks to get some movement in. It is just as important to set aside time to allow the pain medication to do its job and allow scars to heal before pushing oneself too hard after surgery. This may mean taking a break from spending time with children until energy is restored.

Expect Emotions

It is perfectly common for emotions to run wild after any intensive surgery, and mommy makeovers are no different, especially because the changes can be so drastic. The body has just been put through an invasive procedure and feeling overly emotional is a common occurrence. The best way to address these emotions is to remember that they are perfectly normal and will be reduced a few days after the procedure.

Keep Up With Pain Medication

With mommy makeovers, there will be more pain involved than non-invasive procedures; specifically selected prescriptions can make it significantly more manageable. Pain medication for surgical procedures are only meant to be taken short-term, but neglecting to take them or taking them incorrectly can put patients in unnecessary pain. It’s a good idea to set a phone alarm or write down when a dose was taken to prevent any issues.

Above all, remember that healing takes time, and it’s not going to happen overnight. Be realistic about what a recovering body and mind are capable of, and don’t push past those expectations.

Fillers FAQ: How Is the Recovery Process?⁠

Here we go! >>⁠

As a non-invasive procedure, Dr. Franckle will administer the smooth gel treatment via an injection.⁠

Mild bruising, redness, itching, and swelling are normal reactions at the injection site and should subside in 2-4 weeks or less. ⁠

Once the swelling reduces, patients typically start to notice results 2-3 weeks after treatment. ⁠

" From consultation to surgery and a year worth of follow ups, Dr.Franckle has been amazing. ⁠

He truly listens to his patients and adds his expertise to provide amazing results. I've wanted to have a breast augmentation completed for many years. I've even spoke with other surgeons.⁠

As soon as I had the consultation with Dr. Franckle, I booked the procedure. ⁠

He made me feel at ease, answered every question I had and genuinely cared for my input and how I felt. ⁠

His office staff is also wonderful and very attentive. I'm very satisfied with my results and would highly recommend." - Breast Aug (Jan 2021)⁠
