3 Weeks Post Mommy Makeover
Healing is can differ per patient. Your healing will continue for 2-3 months for the early period. This includes some swelling, bruising, malposition, color differences. Sensation in the breasts may also be abnormal and scars will be evolve. Pain varies per person and medication to control #discomfort will be provided. Tingling, burning or shooting pains in the breasts will disappear with time and should not alarm you. It is simply a result of the regeneration of your sensory nerves. If these sensations cause pain, repeated, local self-massage per your surgeon's permission may help. Also, the two breasts commonly heal quite differently so #assymetry is not unusual. One breast may swell more, feel more uncomfortable, or have a different initial shape. After complete #healing, they will be more similar and natural.
The healing after a #tummytuck will require time. Some patients are out of bed and walking the night of surgery and every hour while awake. I allow my patients to return to work at one to two weeks with 14 days preferred. However, no lifting or straining. At three weeks, increased level of activity and full with no restrictions, at 6 weeks. It can be up to one year see your final result. If you have concerns about your healing, or pain that you question to be unusual, it is important to call your plastic surgeon to discuss these further asked to be examined.

Early Results After Mommy Makeover
You have a nice result early after your surgery, and the wrinkling/pleating will go away with time. Stretch marks are permanent (unless they are cut out), but their appearance may be able to be improved with microneedling or energy devices (lasers, radiofrequency). Best to talk with your surgeon about these options.

It seems like you have a good early result. Overall abdominal contour (as well as pleating) will improve in next 3-6 months.
Microneedling may help with stretch marks; however, it will no remove stretch marks completely.
Good luck with your continued recovery.

The breast difficult to assess now.
Does my surgery look OK?
Your doctor minimized your scar laterally and that is why you have a few small wrinkles that would smooth out with time.
Congratulations on your excellent result!
