Abdominoplasty is a procedure designed to correct loose skin and muscle around the stomach and abdomen. Though many patients are aware of this surgical option, there are still people who enter a consultation with very little understanding about the part of the surgical process known as tummy tuck recovery.
Tummy tuck recovery is an important aspect of surgery, because this is when the patient has the most control over the final outcome.
For the safest and quickest recovery, patients should follow all of Doctors Bryan and Kara Criswell’s instructions. This might include tending to bandages and learning how to position yourself while sitting and lying down to help ease pain and promote healing. Expect to be limited to some degree for about a month and a half. It’s also wise to plan on taking time away from work.
