Mommy makeover procedures

Everyone mommy could use a makeover. It has remained one of the best gifts a person could give for the holidays. Giving mommy the gift of plastic mommy makeover procedure could result in one of the best presents this holiday season.

The first day after a tummy tuck mommy makeover procedure will leave you feeling groggy. But this is a result of the anaesthesia. After this wears off you will begin to feel less comfortable for the first few days after the completion of the mommy makeover procedure. Your body will be uncomfortable but is expected to return to normal after the first few days. The scar from the tummy tuck mommy makeover procedure will remain a bit painful to touch and might eventually become numb. Each person will react differently to the scaring.

At first, you will see swelling, some bruises, and possibly numbness. Drains might be placed under your skin at first to get rid of fluids after your mommy makeover procedure but these will be removed within two weeks following the mommy makeover procedure. You might be given elastic compression garments as well meant to be worn under your clothes for three weeks following your mommy makeover procedure. When your incision is closed there are two types of sutures used. The first is absorbable sutures. The second is non-absorbable sutures. If your doctor uses the latter then a follow-up appointment will be schedules to have them removed. It is typical to see swelling in your belly button. Your belly button will appear differently than before, as well.

Following your mommy makeover procedure, sleeping might be a challenge and somewhat uncomfortable. You can speak to your doctor about the possibility of wedging a pillow underneath your body so that you remain in a single position whilst sleeping. Sometimes doctors recommend sponge baths or hot tubs for a few days following the completion of the procedure so that you can avoid getting an infection in the incision. You might be given a time range from your doctor as to how long you should take to heal. There might also be stipulations such as how long you should wait to lift weight, exercise, or lift your children. In order to recover quickly it is important that you plan accordingly and adhere to the rules laid out by your doctor.

Your doctor will generally suggest which medications you can use to offset the pain that follows the wearing off of the anaesthesia. You should follow the advice of your doctor for a few days, after which you should begin to taper off your medication intake.

There are risks associated with any surgical procedure including this one. It is important to speak with your physician about these possibilities during your consultation. The risks can include slow healing, infection, or bleeding. You might also lose sensation in the area which was impacted by the procedure. Once your drains are removed, you could run the risk of fluid build-up. If your muscles are strained, then you might lose your sutures in that area.

There are some risks associated with this operation include the risk of infection within the wounds. When patients first undergo the treatment, they are given antibiotics so as to reduce the risk of infection. For smokers, this risk is much higher.
