What is Recovery Like After a Tummy Tuck?
During the first few days after surgery, you will have some discomfort that can be managed with medication. Swelling should start to resolve after a few weeks. Some people will return to work within a week or two, but some people may still feel uncomfortable and will take up to four weeks to start feeling up to resuming normal activities. Scars can take several months to a year to flatten and fade.
What Results Will I See After a Tummy Tuck?
You will notice a difference immediately after surgery, but your complete results will not become visible until the swelling starts to resolve in several weeks. Total recovery can take several months, and your results will continue to improve during this time. You will see a flatter, tighter abdomen without the loose skin or abdominal bulge that bothered you in the past.
