Mommy Makeover FAQs

We invite you to bring a list of questions with you when you consult with Dr. Wiesman about getting a mommy makeover in Chicago. He and our team will be happy to address any concerns you may have. In the meantime, we invite you to take a look at the list of frequently asked questions below. You may learn something useful as you contemplate committing to a body-changing — and potentially life-changing — mommy makeover procedure.

How Much Downtime Will I Need After My Procedure?

The exact amount of downtime varies depending on a patient’s unique circumstances, including the type of procedures they undergo. Generally speaking, most women are able to return to work about two weeks after their surgeries, as long as their job doesn’t require any strenuous physical activity. To make sure you get enough rest during this period, you should make prior arrangements for things like childcare and help with household chores. You should also refrain from driving until you are feeling strong enough to handle any emergency situations that might happen on the road.

What if I Decide to Have Another Child after My Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeovers are only recommended for women who are fairly certain that they will not have any more children. However, we understand that unplanned pregnancies can occur, and it is even possible that you will make your own decision to have another baby. Your mommy makeover shouldn’t affect your ability to get pregnant, and it won’t pose any inherent risks to your new child. However, your pregnancy could have consequences for the results of your surgeries, perhaps even completely reversing them.

How Safe Is a Mommy Makeover?

No surgery is completely without risk. However, the chances that you will face any severe complications or side effects are quite slim, especially when you entrust your care to an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Wiesman. Before your procedures, our team will be sure to educate you about potential risks. If you notice any severe or unusual symptoms after you complete your treatment, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

When Can I Start Exercising Again after My Procedures?

Most patients should wait a minimum of six weeks before engaging in any sort of vigorous activity. This will allow time for stitches to dissolve, incisions to mend, and muscles to recover from the stress of your surgeries. It is important to listen to your body and get plenty of rest! Depending on your circumstances, you might be able to start some light exercise, such as walking, about a month after your treatment.

Will I Have Visible Scars?

Yes, your procedures are likely to leave scars. However, that shouldn’t deter you from undergoing a mommy makeover. Dr. Wiesman takes care to minimize scarring and only place incisions in areas that will be hidden by your clothes. For example, he tries to make tummy tuck incisions as low as possible so they can be hidden by underwear or a bikini bottom. Similarly, breast procedures scars are usually easy to hide with a bra or bikini top.
