After Tummy Tuck

Following a Tummy Tuck Procedure

After a tummy tuck procedure there will probably be a moderate amount of discomfort. Some people will be released within a couple hours of their tummy tuck procedure, but some people may stay in the facility overnight depending on the extent of work performed. The amount of discomfort experienced after a tummy tuck procedure depends greatly on how tightly the inner girdle area is made. The tummy tuck surgeon will give the patient instructions and the patient should begin to move around as soon as possible. Exercise will help healing by reducing swelling and reducing the risk of blood clots.

Abdominal numbness can last for six months or even longer in some instances but will pass. There may be some swelling that should also pass within a few days. The stitches from the tummy tuck procedure will be removed around a week’s time, and deeper sutures will be removed in a few weeks. The tummy tuck scars may go through a period where they worsen in the months following the surgical procedure, but tummy tuck patients should allow 9-12 months for the scars to flatten out and for the color to fade. Returning to work can usually occur about 1-2 weeks after the tummy tuck, but high activity should be avoided for a month. Everyone’s individual healing time will vary so the tummy tuck surgeon will be able to instruct the patient based on his or her progress.

Choosing to get a tummy tuck procedure is often very rewarding for the patients. The results can be very significant and the patient will be pleased with their new flatter stomach. Many people are frustrated with their stomach shape due to their weakened abdominal muscles or excess skin and are able to achieve the desired shape and form. It can take someone a few weeks while it can take another person months to feel normal again following a tummy tuck procedure. Tummy tuck procedures are normally long-lasting if a healthy diet and regular exercise is maintained.
