How is the post-op of mommy makeover?
In mommy makeover, the woman can choose a procedure, associate two or even the three techniques presented. However, it is necessary to be aware that the more procedures performed, the greater the surgical trauma and the greater the time for recovery.
In general, recovery takes from one to three weeks, and during this period, especially if you perform a mammoplasty, it will not be possible to hold the child in your arms.
For this reason, it is not uncommon for women to wait between one and two years to perform post-pregnancy plastic surgery so that the child is already less dependent.
Therefore, to plan the mommy makeover, it is essential that the woman has help, as she must remain at least days and weeks at rest. In addition, other precautions include:
- use compression belts in operated regions;
- do not perform physical activities for at least one month;
- do not get up for an average of one month;
- do not drive for at least 15 days;
- Take only the medications prescribed by the doctor which may include analgesics, anti-inflammatory drugs and antibiotics;
- sleeping on your back for about two months;
- do lymphatic drainage sessions after surgery.
With proper care, the woman will have a smoother and more adequate recovery and will also have better postoperative results.
It is noteworthy that to carry out the mommy makeover, it is essential that the patient consults a trusted plastic surgeon and member of the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery (SBCP) and that is what we will talk about in the next topic.
