Tummy Tuck Surgery Recovery

Surgical procedures include incision and the tummy tuck procedure is no exception since it is a major operation. It is a procedure where the incision is made in the lower abdomen and the excess skin and fat is removed to create a tighter and more beautiful abdomen.  Most of the time, recovery takes about 2 weeks before you can return to work. This does not necessarily mean going back to the gym for a full workout or performing strenuous physical activities right away.  Within 2 weeks, you will go through a follow-up with your doctor to have the drains removed, control the swelling, and make sure that there is no infection.

You need to monitor yourself in the recovery process. You need to take plenty of fluids, wear a girdle, and strictly follow the instructions which will be given by your surgeon.  In about 2 weeks, your pain will be minimal and you will no longer need any pain medication.  Narcotics or pain medications are a wonderful way to manage pain but can cause drowsiness. Expect that in the first 2 weeks, you are not going to be able to drive or do a lot of things outside your home. After 2 weeks, medications should be stopped. You should be able to walk straight and be able to lift at least 20 pounds.

Be prepared if you are going to have a tummy tuck. Make sure that you are able to take the amount of time off necessary for your recovery. This is a procedure that requires plenty of home rest, so you need to schedule and take enough time off for a full recovery after the surgery. To achieve better results and to get them even faster, you have to follow the guidelines or instruction given to you by your surgeon.
