Mommy Make Over: Important Post op Equipment
It is always important to follow all of your #surgeon's pre op and post op instructions. Each surgeon is different, but if your #boardcertified plastic surgeon recommends using a shower seat, please use one. The instructions are there for a reason: your surgeon wants you to #heal from your #mommymakeover smoothly and quickly.
Best of luck.
Mommy make-over - is a shower seat necessary?
- You should ask your own surgeon - as every surgeon has a different approach.
- I require my patients to have a seat in the shower in case they get dizzy (it can be a plastic stool) and someone near-by to help during their first shower.
- For my patients, renting a walker makes a huge difference, a shower seat less so.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Showering after TT, BL/BA
A walker will help as you will need to walk in a flexed position after the surgery and will be very helpful. Assuming BL/BA refers to breast Lift/b breast augmentation, generally shower seat are not necessary as your showers are better to be short unless for that short time you like to be more comfortable. By the time you take showers you will start to to stand more straight (more individualized). Dont use hot water and avoid steamy showers.
Be sure you choose a surgeon board certified by "The American Board of Plastic Surgery". Check her/his reviews, before and after photos, credentials, experience, and have a quality consultation.
You surgeon should be preferably a member of "American Society of Plastic Surgeons" and ideally a member of "American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons" to indicate cosmetic plastic surgery is the main focus of their practice and they have been evaluated to perform high volume and quality, honest aesthetic surgery and adhere to a code of ethics.
