Plastic surgery for moms has been a growing trend in the last few years, as many women have made the choice to repair the physical damage caused by pregnancy and childbirth.
While it’s great that more women are focusing on feeling good about themselves, it can be difficult for busy moms to allow for proper recovery time after a tummy tuck or breast augmentation.
If you’re considering a breast augmentation, it’s important to make sure you have a support system in place during your recovery. Here are a few key tips to help ensure a smooth healing process:
No heavy lifting!
This can be especially difficult if you have a baby or toddler. Talk to your surgeon before the surgery to get tips on coping with lifting during your recovery. During the first week or two, you should be lifting almost nothing, and someone should be with you to see that you are taken care of. For the next 4 weeks or so, be very cautious about lifting and try to avoid it. If you must lift, listen to your body’s cues, and lift with your legs.
If you have young children, they might not understand the need to be gentle and patient as you recover. It’s very important that you get help caring for your children during the first week or two. Making sure that both you and your family have what they need can be tricky during your recovery, but you shouldn’t feel guilty about your choice to undergo breast augmentation.
Recovery is a Process
