What Can You Expect After Surgery?

Depending on how many procedures you combine, your recovery needs will vary somewhat. Most people can return to work by 2 to 3 weeks after a mommy makeover in NYC. There are usually restrictions for physical activity such as picking up children, and vigorous use of abdominal or chest muscles. You can expect to have incisions requiring care and protection for at least a few weeks. Scars are inevitable, but you can expect your scars to be well-hidden within underwear lines. Your surgeon will likely advise you to wait 6 weeks or more before resuming workouts, and you’ll need an extra set of hands at home if you have small children or pets to care for. Luckily, combining procedures means only one recovery period for numerous benefits.
