Thank you for your question. You are very early in your recovery from surgery. Your breasts and abdomen will change over the next 6 months. Discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon.
Post-op recovery in Melbourne, FL.
your question about swelling after your Mommy Makeover, I would say that you
are very early in the recovery process and it can take many months for the body
to eliminate swelling and for healing to
occur. I would wait at least a year, if not perhaps longer, before making any judgment
about your final result. Definitely discuss with your board-certified
plastic surgeon. I hope this information is helpful to you. Best of
Thank you for your question.You are very early in your recovery process. Swelling is normal this early and will diminish as you heal. If you have any concerns or questions please contact surgeon. Best wishes.
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
At this point 5weeks post op the swelling is normal
To reduce it, I recommend you perform daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the abdomen and wear a postoperative girdle from thigh to the breasts.
If the fter six months post-op, I recommend you send us your photos again, to give you more information about how we can solve this problem.

5 weeks post MM swelling, should I wait to see what's going to come of this?
Thank you for your question and congratulations on your MM surgery. Depending on the amount of surgery you had performed - tummy tuck and/or liposuction - you may have prolonged swelling to your tissues for 6-12 months after surgery. Without pictures to offer advice I would advise allowing a few more months to pass in order to assess your long term results. If after this time you are still unhappy with your results talk to your surgeon about what revisions can be performed.
You are still early in your recovery process. It can take a few months for the body to reach its balance. Yes, living a healthy lifestyle is important, but be careful to take it slow. Gradually increase your activity when resuming exercise. Follow your surgeon's instructions for best results.
Not sure if you had tummy tuck as part of mommy makeover, but assuming you did, the swelling of the abdomen usually lasts for a while, up to 3 months. Once swelling is gone, you may discuss the options to improve the body contour further with your surgeon.Best,Alex Kim, MD
