Following your procedure, you will likely have gauze and bandages applied to your incisions. You may also have a compression garment placed over the treatment area to control swelling.
For most of the procedures included in a mommy makeover, healing takes several weeks. During this period, swelling will decrease and your results will begin to become apparent. Depending on the type of surgery you undergo, you may not be able to lift heavy objects, so make sure to arrange for childcare if you have small children.
It is important to carefully follow all your surgeon's instructions during this time to protect your health and ensure optimal results.
