How to Best Recover from a Mommy Makeover in Baltimore Jeffrey Schreiber, MD on 24 Apr 2018
A mommy makeover in Baltimore is a great way to get your body back and regain some self-confidence after having a baby. A positive body image is an important part of feeling good about yourself, but you may be wondering how you will have time to set aside for yourself now that you have a child, or children. Below are a few key pieces of advice that should have you recovering from a mommy makeover in no time.
As is key to any successful procedure, from a tummy tuck to breast augmentation in Baltimore, you must find a board certified plastic surgeon who takes the time to get to know your individual needs and goals. He or she can devise a personalized plan that works best for you.
Talk with your partner, kids, family, and friends to explain what you will be going through after the procedures. This is when you get some “me time” in order to properly heal. In most cases your partner and children (if they are old enough) will be eager to help you and play nurse, as will your extended family and friends.
Make a to-do list before your surgery to make sure everything is in order before your mommy makeover. This includes having a place set up for you to rest, prepared meals that you can refrigerate or freeze that can be ready without hassle, and catching up on laundry and other chores so you will have no reason to get out of bed.
Of course, most importantly you will want to follow your doctor’s orders. Wear a compression garment if that is recommended, avoid strenuous activity and heavy lifting, rest as advised, and take whatever medicine is prescribed as prescribed. By adhering to these few simple pieces of advice you will be back up and on your feet and enjoying your new body before you know it.
