Tummy Tuck Surgery Post-Operative Recovery

Every tummy tuck patient is different. Recovery time will vary.

The first few days your abdomen will be swollen and you will be in some pain and discomfort. Your plastic surgeon will prescribe you with some medication for this pain. Typically, but dependent on the degree of your surgery, you will be released within a few hours.

Before you leave, you plastic surgeon will give you instructions on exactly what you can and can not do. To answer a couple of common questions, your plastic surgeon will direct you on how to change your dressings, how to shower, and how to be most comfortable. Your surface stitches will be removed within one week, and the others will come out within 3 weeks.

For more information on Tummy Tuck Surgery, check out My Plastic Surgeon USA's Procedures pages.
