Post-operative care instructions will be given by the cosmetic surgeon. Most patients will feel well enough to get out of bed on the day of the operation itself. A two night stay in hospital is sometimes required after which the patient can return home to convalesce. The healing wound and dressing must be kept clean and dry until the first post-operative visit. Stitches are removed in 7 to 14 days after a Tummy Tuck surgery. Most of the time patients can return to work after the 14 days but strenuous exercise and lifting must be avoided for at least 3 months. A good healthy diet — low in fat — and plenty of gentle exercise are encouraged.
The world’s first tummy tuck was performed many, many years ago in 1899. A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is an excellent way to remove excess fat from the abdomen. And tighten the muscles around it. A tummy tuck not only removes additional fat but also excess skin from the abdomen. Having said that, it’s important to note that a tummy tuck is not a weight-loss procedure. The tummy tuck is a great option for both men & women who are in good health.
