mom-child-relaxBeing a mother requires a lot of sacrifices, but your confidence shouldn’t be one of them! Many women have regained their pre-baby bodies with the help of a post pregnancy reconstruction. Our team at Pure Aesthetics is pleased to offer such a deserving group of women the chance to correct the unwanted changes that often result from pregnancy and breastfeeding. A major concern that many of these women have, however, is how long it will take to get back to normal after the procedure.

Since a post pregnancy reconstruction can involve different procedures, the recovery will vary from person to person. It can take several weeks to months to feel normal again, depending on the combination of procedures you undergo – not to mention everyone heals at a different rate. During your consultation, we will help you understand what to expect after your surgery based on your treatment plan.

Overall, it is important that you don’t push yourself too hard too soon. Make sure to listen to Dr Steve Merten’s post-operative instructions to ensure a safe recovery. We recommend you have a strong support system to take care of you, as well as any young children, in the beginning stages of recovery. In addition, Dr Merten requires all surgical patients to refrain from smoking, as to not complicate the healing process.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have. You will return for follow-up visits so Dr Merten can check your healing progress, at which time you can also express your concerns.
