Although anytime can be the right time to give yourself some self-care, the autumn has a few specific benefits for your mommy makeover recovery. We take a closer look at those benefits below.
The mommy makeover process rejuvenates those areas of your body that you want to enhance post-baby. It is carefully tailored to your individual concerns when it is performed by experienced, skilled cosmetic surgeon Dr. Angelo Cuzalina.
Babies are a wonderful gift, and wanting to rejuvenate your body doesn’t change the fact that you are an accomplished, loving mom to your children. You deserve to take this time for yourself, to restore your body to the way you want it to be. As a mother, you already know that there are multiple bodily changes that occur as a result of:
Just the process of raising kids can take a toll on your body because – as parents – we spend a lot of time on our kids and less time on ourselves. With a mommy makeover customized to you, Dr. Cuzalina will help you feel 100 percent “you” again, confident in your skin.
With Thanksgiving, Christmas and other holidays right around the corner, you may have more time off available to you. The rest of your family may have some time off from school and other obligations, so you may be overall less busy and have fewer appointments to keep.
Greater flexibility in your schedule is a good thing, because you should generally take about a week to two weeks off after your mommy makeover. The exact timeline depends on the specific procedures included in your plan. You may need to take a full week off from work, and possibly up to two. You won’t be able to lift your children or anything heavy during this time. Relaxing and forgetting your routine for a little while may be easier around the holidays.
Do you find yourself winding down earlier in the evening during the fall and winter? It could be because there are fewer hours of light. After your mommy makeover, you’ll want to stay active by walking around and keeping your blood circulating, but you should also get plenty of rest and recuperation. Without the long days of summer to tempt you outdoors, the autumn may be the perfect time to stay in with a book or a movie.
Depending on the procedures, you may experience bruising and swelling for a few weeks. Covering up with a loose sweater, shawl, baggy pants and comfy clothes is usually more temperature-appropriate during this time of year in Oklahoma. These forgiving clothing items will allow you to heal after surgery in a discreet way.
