Your Toronto Mommy Makeover Recovery Timeline: Week-by-Week Guide to Healing and Returning to Normal Activities

February 4th, 2024 Share

At Visage Clinic, led by the esteemed Dr. DuPéré, we pride ourselves on not just delivering exceptional surgical results but also ensuring a smooth and comprehensive recovery for our Mommy Makeover patients. This transformative journey is as much about healing and recovery as it is about the surgery itself. Here, we offer an in-depth week-by-week guide to help you navigate through your recovery, tailored to the unique needs of our Toronto patients.

Week 1: Beginning the Mommy Makeover Journey

The first week post-surgery is critical. Immediately after your procedure, which may include breast augmentation or lift, tummy tuck, and/or liposuction, you’ll spend some time in our post-operative recovery area and head home to recover. Our team will monitor your initial recovery closely.

  • Rest and Recuperation: It’s imperative to rest as much as possible.
  • Pain Management: Pain and discomfort are normal, but manageable with medications.
  • Initial Mobility: Gentle walking is encouraged to promote circulation, reducing the risk of blood clots.
  • Compression Garments: Essential for reducing swelling and aiding in the retraction of skin.

Week 2: Home Recovery

As you continue your recovery at home during the second week, it’s important to maintain a balance between rest and minimal activity.

  • Follow-up Visits: You’ll return to Visage Clinic for a post-operative check-up. Dr. DuPéré will assess your healing progress.
  • Managing Swelling and Bruising: While swelling and bruising are at their peak, they will gradually begin to diminish.
  • Self-care: Continue to rest, hydrate well, and eat nutritious foods to aid in healing.

Weeks 3-4: Noticeable Improvement

By the third week, you’ll start noticing significant improvements from your mommy makeover surgery. Your mobility will also increase, and you’ll begin feeling more comfortable.

  • Increased Activity: While still avoiding strenuous activities, you can begin engaging in light household tasks.
  • Scar Care: With Dr. DuPéré’s guidance, start implementing scar care strategies to ensure minimal scarring.
  • Emotional Well-being: It’s normal to experience a rollercoaster of emotions. If you have concerns, our team is here to support you.

Weeks 5-6: Slowly Returning to Your Daily Activities

This period marks a turning point in your recovery, where you start regaining more normalcy in your life.

  • Moderate Exercise: Gradually reintroduce moderate exercises, as approved by Dr. DuPéré.
  • Professional Life: Depending on the nature of your job, you might be able to return to work.
  • Body Image: As swelling continues to subside, you’ll start appreciating the changes in your body.

Weeks 7-8: Back to Normal Routines

Recovery is a gradual process, and by weeks seven and eight, you’ll be close to your regular routine.

  • Regular Activities: Most normal activities can be resumed, but listen to your body and don’t overdo it.
  • Follow-up Care: Regular check-ins at Visage Clinic are crucial to ensure everything is healing as it should.

Weeks 9-12: Approaching Full Recovery After Your Mommy Makeover

During these weeks, you’re on the final stretch of your recovery journey.

  • Exercise Routine: You can gradually return to most of your pre-surgery exercise routines, barring any high-impact activities.
  • Visible Changes: The results of your Mommy Makeover will be more evident as the swelling continues to reduce.

Months 3-6: Full Recovery and Final Results

Complete healing takes time. By the 3 to 6-month mark, you will be able to see the full results of your Mommy Makeover.

  • Long-term Care: Continue following Dr. DuPéré’s advice for long-term care

of your surgical sites. This includes maintaining a healthy lifestyle, adhering to skincare routines, and attending all follow-up appointments.

  • Regular Check-ups: Regular check-ups at Visage Clinic are important to monitor your progress and address any concerns.

Post-6 Months: Enjoying Your New Results

Beyond six months, you should be able to fully enjoy the results of your Mommy Makeover in Toronto. This is a time to celebrate your new body and the journey you’ve undergone.

  • Maintaining Results: Stay in touch with Visage Clinic for advice on maintaining your results. This includes a balanced diet, regular exercise, and proper skin care.
  • Embracing Change: Adjusting to your new body can be both exciting and overwhelming. Remember, it’s a journey of both physical and emotional transformation.
