When can I return to work following a full tummy tuck?

If you have a desk job, usually you can return to work within 4-7 days. This depends upon you. If you have a job that requires lifting, pushing or pulling over 20 lbs, then you may consider longer, unless you are able to have others complete this activity for you.

What is a “Mommy Makeover”?

A Mommy makeover is a term used to describe various surgical and Non-surgical options available to women post having children. As a childbearing woman, the abdomen and breasts become the most affected during pregnancy.
