How is life after surgery?
Because maternity aesthetics is personalized to the needs and goals of the patient, protocols and recovery times vary. Many women get maternity aesthetics when their children are very young. Childcare during the recovery period requires careful planning. Most surgical procedures restrict weight lifting for 4-6 weeks after the operation; You may need someone else to perform tasks that require your child to be picked up or transported. Patients feel comfortable and self-confident enough to wear swimsuits within 1-3 months after the operation. The results are long-lasting and retain their permanence for years.
