Mommy Makeover Recovery

A mommy makeover is a surgery that involves several procedures performed at the same time.  It can include a breast lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck and liposuction.  It may include some or all of those procedures.

The tummy tuck is what often determines the recovery period of all procedures done.  Just like a cesarean section, a tummy tuck requires patients to take six weeks off with no aggressive physical activity. Most of the other procedures have a two to three week recommended time off from work period at a minimum. 

Some patients need more time off and some need less.  If returning to work at 2-3 weeks, a drain may still be in place.  If you sit at a desk most of the day, it is important to move around at least once every hour to keep blood circulating and avoid clots.

Most patients are very happy with the results of a mommy makeover.  If you’d like to learn more or schedule a consultation, please contact Virginia Plastic Surgery in Fairfax at 703-264-0904 or
