Before and After

best results


  • A tummy tuck recovery takes time, and patients should expect to devote at least one to two weeks strictly for resting and healing.

  • Expect pain and discomfort, particularly if the procedure involves muscle tightening. Pain medications will help keep patients comfortable during recovery time.

  • Following the procedure, drain tubes are inserted to prevent fluid from accumulating in the abdomen. These are removed in a follow-up visit one to two weeks following surgery.

  • Post-operation, patients must wear a special compression garment for several weeks to aid in swelling and bruising, which will subside over a few weeks.

  • Most people find they can return to work after about a week, but some may need more recovery time.

  • While everyday activities can be gradually re-introduced after the first week or two following surgery, vigorous exercise must be avoided for four to six weeks.

  • As swelling subsides, patients will begin to see the results of their tummy tuck emerge.
