Caucasian Model Posing on the FloorA Mommy Makeover is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures that Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Bruno performs. And there’s a good reason why. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can take a toll on a woman’s body, leaving her with sagging and deflated breasts, loose and unwanted excess abdominal skin, a belly “pooch” that just won’t go away, and even stubborn fatty deposits that don’t respond to diet and exercise. A Mommy Makeover, which often combines a breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck and liposuction, is a great way for Southern California mothers to reclaim their former bodies. But because they’ll be having so many plastic surgeries performed at once, they’ll need at least 2 weeks of rest and recovery time, which includes not picking up or holding small children.

Whether you stay at home, work from home or work outside the home, one thing is true for all moms: you’re busy! So how do Beverly Hills women find the time to properly recover from a mommy makeover, all while maintaining their household and caring for their children? Read on for some ideas and inspiration that just may push this desired plastic surgery procedure from a “want” to a “need!”

Finding Time to Recover from a Mommy Makeover

It’s true. Moms never really get a vacation. They’re always working, and even when their kids are peacefully sleeping, they’re still on call for childcare and still have household chore responsibilities. But every year, Dr. Bruno helps several Beverly Hills and Southern California women with Mommy Makeovers, all of whom somehow find a way to make room in their busy schedules to allow for a proper recovery time period.

One of the best ways you can ensure you have the help you need to recover from a mommy makeover is to enlist the help of your tribe. Whether you have family nearby who can lend a helping hand by watching your children or taking care of household duties, friends who want to help, or temporarily hire a nanny or a housekeeper to keep the household running smoothly, it is possible for busy moms to find the time to recover from a Mommy Makeover.

Another way that moms find a way to make time for their recovery from this procedure is that they delay the surgery until their kids are school aged and more independent. You see, a Mommy Makeover doesn’t have to take place as soon as you’ve decided not to have any additional children, even if your youngest has just weaned from nursing and is still in diapers. A Mommy Makeover can occur years after your last pregnancy, and because of this, many busy moms wait until their kids are older and more independent to have the procedure performed. Depending on the age and independence level of your children, you might even be able to put them to work for you around the house by picking up the chores you can’t do during your recovery!
