MommyMakeover - Pacifica - June 2022

So, there’s a mommy makeover on the horizon for you. Congratulations! This is a big step towards reclaiming your sense of self and reorienting after all the changes that come with motherhood. 

Of course, a mommy makeover is major surgery, so you don’t want to head into it unprepared. Mommy makeover prep is essential to getting the right results from your surgery. To help you get ready, here are three pieces of mommy makeover advice to keep in mind. 

Great results start with the right preparation.

#1: Prep Your Body for Healing Now

Bodies heal better and faster when they are healthy. This means exercising, hydrating and eating nutritious foods. On top of this, you really should focus on getting quality sleep. The more rested your body is, the faster you will recover from surgery.

#2: Time Your Procedure Based on the Recovery Period

Healing from a mommy makeover takes about six weeks, and you’ll need 2 to 4 of those off from work and with minimal responsibilities at home. Make sure your surgery is scheduled at a time where you can get the help you need and take time off with minimal stress on you. 

#3: Set Up Your Home for Recovery

While your home is likely quite comfortable to you as it is, your needs during the recovery period are different. Start setting it up for a better experience now. Invest in new pillows, a good bedside tray table and organizers that keep everything you need close by as you heal from your combination procedure. Also start looking at potential hazards, like elements you could trip over, and eliminate them.
