Mommy make-over - recliner?
- A recliner will probably help make your recovery easier.
- A one week rental with an option to extend if you want to should be all you need.
- Yes, a remote control would make your life easier too.
- I also suggest my mommy make-over patient rent a walker because it will make it much easier to get around after surgery. Hope all goes well - enjoy your result!

A comfortable place to recover after mommy makeover
If you have a really high bed (for example, a mattress on top of a boxspring), it is important to plan ahead for your recovery, as you will be less agile and mobile at first. A recliner is a great option for many patients after their mommy makeover, although it may not be necessary to go out and rent one. Many patients use a stepstool so they can get in and out of their beds, or relocate temporarily to the couch for the first few days. Having an assortment of pillows handy is also nice for propping and positioning yourself after surgery.
Hope this helps, and best of luck with your surgery and recovery,Dr. Lim
Recliner post MM
Very seldom do patients require rental of a recliner post this procedure. Many patients opt for bed step stools. If you wish to be safer, 4 weeks should be sufficient for rental of a recliner chair. Best wishes for your quick recovery.
Mommy makeover recovery
While a recliner may be helpful, you don't have to have one. You can use a step to help you get into your bed. Make sure that you have many pillows available to help prop you for your comfort. Keeping your knees somewhat bent and your body in a semi-reclined position is most comfortable in the beginning. Good luck!
