What will the recovery be like from a Mummy Makeover?
Full recovery from a Mummy Makeover procedure is about 6 weeks. In general, you should be up and walking the day after surgery. By the end of the first week, you, should be up and walking around the house frequently. It will take approximately 2 weeks before you are comfortable enough to drive a car.
You may return to work after 2-3 weeks and resume your usual exercise routine after 6 weeks. Due to the tummy tuck and the fact that you had multiple procedures done at one time, the recovery period is significant. The use of painkillers should effectively control your discomfort so that you can move about and sleep as needed.
