How long does it take to recover from a tummy tuck?

When you have undergone a tummy tuck procedure, one of your first questions is how long does it take to recover from a tummy tuck, right? Your surgeon would usually recommend you to take a two-week leave from work for recovery. It is of high importance that you comply with this period for your utmost safety.

During a tummy tuck procedure, the surgeon creates an incision on the lower abdomen in areas where there are excess skins. The fat would have to be removed to achieve a more presentable abdomen. The surgeon would put drains that are necessary to help you with the swelling. It usually takes two weeks before they were removed. On this period, there are a number of things that you would be required to do.

To make sure you can avoid infection, you must take in plenty of fluids. You must wear a girdle or also known as compression garment. If you are a gym enthusiast, you must avoid doing strenuous activities. There would be recommended pain relievers and other kinds of medication. Avoid driving as well and doing heavy household chores. You must also monitor your condition with each passing day. Typically, after two weeks, you must be able to walk straight without feeling pain and you would be able to lift at least 20 pounds.

After two weeks, all the medications must be stopped. You must visit your surgeon to see if the drains can be safely removed and if your recovery period had been successful. If you don’t want to prolong the period where you can’t go to work or do your usual routines, then your discipline and cooperation after the surgery are of utmost importance. So before you consider undergoing a tummy tuck, make sure that you are able to take the amount of time off necessary for your recovery.
