At this time of each year, the plastic surgeons at Burt Plastic Surgery see an influx of women come into the practice hoping to restore their pre-pregnancy bodies through mommy makeover. This is no coincidence as more and more mothers see the fall season as an opportune time to focus on themselves. If you have been longing to restore your pre-pregnancy body, Burt Plastic Surgery offers a few reasons why the fall season is the right time to pursue mommy makeover surgery.
The Kids Are Back in School
Now that your children have returned to school following summer break, it’s likely that your house is a little quieter and your days are a little more open. This extra peace and quiet is the perfect time for mommy makeover. Most mommy makeover patients are fully recovered two weeks after surgery. During this time, you will need to avoid physical activity such as exercising and anything that involves lifting your arms above your head. Having the kids back in school gives you the opportunity to sleep and rest during the day, two key factors in a successful recovery.
Look Great Just in Time for the Holidays
The back-to-school season is quickly followed by the holiday season, a time that keeps many hard-working mothers preoccupied and busy. This is another reason why the fall season is the perfect time for mommy makeover. The initial recovery period occurs during the first week after the procedure, but your body will need several months to heal. For example, if you choose to have breast implants placed, it will take several months for your implants to settle into a lower, more natural position. Additionally, it takes at least six months for scars at your incision sites, whether they be on your breasts or abdomen, to fade. By pursuing mommy makeover now, you will have ample time to properly heal just in time for the holidays.
While fall is a great time to undergo mommy makeover, beautiful results require proper planning and recovery. Because you will need ample time to rest, you will likely need to ask for help from a loved one who can take care of your children after school and/or help with your daily errands. If you have a toddler who needs to be carried, you should arrange for help with childcare during the first two weeks of recovery.
