What is the Tummy Tuck Recovery Process?

Once you have undergone the tummy tuck procedure, you must be careful with how you recover and follow the provided recovery instructions closely. It may take 8 full weeks to recover after your surgery so that you can regain your energy and stamina. In the beginning, there might be some swelling and discomfort. This is a very common reaction to any surgical procedure and you will feel better once you gradually regain your strength.

What Should you Do After the Surgery?

You will have to be prepared for some discomforts after your tummy tuck surgery. The first thing to keep in mind is to stay in sitting position for about 2 to 4 days. When you do lie down or stand up, you must keep your knees bent. If you stand straight during these early days, you may put pressure on your stitches and could cause a great deal of pain. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medication to deal with the discomfort and pain during the first few weeks. For some people, it may take longer to deal with the pain.

Since the skin of your tummy is pulled down and tightly repositioned, it will be difficult to stand straight for about 2 weeks. You must not try to straighten up during the early days since it will lead to increased discomfort. Some women develop pain in the lower back pain since they have to stay bent for so long but these problems disappear as soon as the doctor allows you to stand up again.

How Will Your Incision Scars Look?

Your abdominal scars will look thick and puffy during the initial days. Your scars will flatten on their own within 6 to 12 months. You could also opt for liposuction so that it reduces how full your incisions look when healed. For a few, the scar from the incision might remain and you can then opt for scar revision in some time. This is not a complicated surgery and in the hands of an experienced surgeon, you can get drastic improvement.
