I Work in a Factory on a Assembly Line, How Soon Can I Return to Work from a Mommy Makeover?

Q:  I work in a factory on an assembly line, how soon can I return to work after a Mommy Makeover?

A:  The “Mommy Makeover” is a combination of plastic surgery procedures aimed at restoring a women’s figure after having children.  Most of my patients are interested in a tummy tuck and liposuction.  Some women want a breast lift or breast augmentation, and some request fat grafting to the hips and/or butt.  The recovery time will depend on which procedures you have as well as what your work entails.  You will definitely need a minimum of 2 weeks off work, but you may need more.  I generally recommend my patients plan on 3 weeks off.  It’s usually easier to return to work a week sooner than it is to request more time off if recovery is progressing as speedily as you planned.
