Will I have any post-procedure limitations?

Mommy makeovers are an outpatient procedure which allow you to recover at home, though some patients may be recommended an overnight stay for 24-hour recovery. Expect swelling and potential soreness for the first one to two weeks after surgery, plus some fatigue and potentially the need for assistance around the house.

You will be prescribed pain medications which may limit your ability to drive until they’ve been completed. You’ll also be told to avoid heavy lifting for at least six weeks.
