Sleeping position after a tummy tuck

In a tummy tuck surgery, excess abdominal skin and fat will be removed and an incision will be made. The skin will be tightened resulting in a flatter, tighter and firmer abdomen. It is important that there is very little tension applied to the incision area so it can heal properly with only minimal scarring.

During a tummy tuck intervention, the surgeon will tighten your abdominal muscles and connective tissue and needs to set the tension to make it taut so as to determine the exact amount of loose skin to be removed and to set the tension for the closure. This will help in controlling the scar location and appearance.

There are things that you can do to minimize scarring so it will not expand. You need to know what you can and cannot do when sleeping or when doing other activities. The abdominal skin is pulled tightly during a tummy tuck surgery so you need to strictly follow instructions so the incision does not stretch and leave you with hypertrophic scars.

The best sleeping position is reclining, not flat on your back. If you do not have a reclining chair, you can use pillows to provide the elevation needed for your head, upper body and under your knees. This position will keep your body flexed at the waist. Do not spend too much time lounging. Be mobile as soon as you can. Get up, walk around with your hip flexed, as this will help improve circulation and prevent blood clots after surgery. When you get up, it is best to roll on your side so that you do not put pressure on the incision site. Walk with your back bent over as this will help minimize stretching of the scar. If you follow these instructions, this will greatly help in the healing process and appearance of the scar.
