Why You Should Undergo Mommy Makeover During Back-to-School Season

Posted on September 1, 2014

Cute-kidsMany children have already returned to school following summer break; others are about to go back to school in the upcoming days. Now that your house is once again quiet during the day, it is the perfect time to do something you have been longing to do: pursue mommy makeover cosmetic surgery. Why should you undergo mommy makeover during back-to-school season? Palm Beach plastic surgeon Dr. David Rankin explains.

Ample Peace and Quiet

Although having cosmetic mommy makeover surgery can be a positive, life-changing event, it is also a serious undertaking. Mommy makeover is a surgical procedure that requires about two weeks for the initial recovery period. During this time, you must rest as much as possible and avoid vigorous activity, including exercising and lifting your head higher than shoulder height.

That is why back-to-school season is the perfect time for mommy makeover surgery. With the kids at school, you can sleep during the day. Not to mention, you will not have to lift them up or chase them around the house while they are at school. Your home will be quiet and peaceful while the children are at school, which is the perfect environment in which to recover from mommy makeover surgery.

Look Fabulous for the Holidays

The most intense part of the recovery period occurs during the first week after surgery. However, your body will continue to heal for several months after surgery. This is how long it takes for breast implants — often included in mommy makeover surgery — to settle into a lower, more natural position and for any residual swelling to subside completely. It also takes at least six months for the scars at your incision sites to start to fade, so they begin to match the color of your surrounding skin.

This is another reason that back-to-school season is the perfect time for mommy makeover surgery: By undergoing the surgical procedure now, you will look fabulous for the holidays.

Other Considerations

Even though fall is the perfect time to have mommy makeover surgery, there are several things to take into consideration when planning for cosmetic surgery. For instance, you will most likely need to enlist the help of your spouse, a friend or a family member to get the children ready for school. You definitely need help driving them to and from their school activities for the first day or two after surgery. If you have a young child that needs to be carried, you should arrange for help with childcare.
