What is a mommy makeover?

While childbirth is undoubtedly one of life’s greatest joys and accomplishments, it can take a toll on the body, producing stubborn fat and excess skin that is difficult to address through dieting and exercise alone. A mommy makeover is a combination procedure that allows a woman to experience exponential aesthetic improvement while minimizing total recovery time and costs. 

Dr. Lee offers a detailed consultation process to help each patient determine what areas to focus on and what to expect regarding downtime and results. After a mommy makeover in Mission Viejo, many women find that they look better than they ever dreamed they could and that their energy, self-esteem, and stamina have all been replenished.

Mommy makeover recovery – The road to recuperation

One of the main benefits of Ladera Ranch, Mission Viejo, and Lake Forest mommy makeover patients is that it allows them to consolidate recovery time after multiple procedures. Dr. Lee will provide an individualized aftercare plan based on which procedures the patient has chosen, going over incision care, showering, resuming exercise, resuming work, and other important milestones. He will provide prescription pain medications to help ease postoperative discomfort and will outfit the patient with compression garments as needed to help reduce swelling. 

For the first few weeks after surgery, patients should avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting, allowing themselves ample time to rest and heal. It is advisable to schedule childcare and household help ahead of time in order to minimize stress and obligations during the recuperation phase. Patients should refrain from sleeping on their stomachs or sides, instead opting to elevate the head slightly, reducing swelling. Smoking should be avoided for 4-6 weeks both before and after surgery, as it can significantly interfere with the healing process and may lead to unwanted complications.
