Pilates and Zoomba After Mommy Makeover

Q: When Can I Go Back to my Pilates and Zoomba Classes After my Mommy Makeover?

Dr. Carlin Vickery Answers: Ideally you will wait at least 8 full weeks before any strenuous exercise. The healing strength of the operated tissues will not achieve it’s full strength until 8 weeks. If you begin to do core exercises prior to 8 weeks then you are risking weakening of your abdominal repair and you may develop recurrent abdominal bulging. I do tell my patient’s that they should gradually increase walking within a few days of surgery. Additionally I allow them to do light arm weights in the early post op weeks.
