Every plastic surgery, including abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), requires some downtime to rest and recover. Allowing your body to adapt and heal is essential to the quality of your results! When you come to our practice for your pre-surgical appointments, we will make sure you have all of the information and instructions you need for a successful recovery. It’s difficult to provide an exact timeline without first discussing the particulars of your procedure. Your recovery from the abdominoplasty procedure may be influenced by the following factors:
Generally speaking, you may need to delay your return to work for 1 to 3 weeks. During the 3 to 6 weeks after surgery, you can begin to reintegrate light exercise into your daily routine. After about 6 to 8 weeks, you should be fully healed and able to return to a full range of activities. We will make sure you are informed of appropriate aftercare every step of the way.
