What will be your recovery from tummy tuck be like?

What will be your recovery from tummy tuck be like?

Once you have undergone a tummy tuck surgery, you have to be careful with your recovery. Since it is a major surgical procedure, a number of women get depressed during their recovery period. It takes about 8 weeks to completely recover from the tummy tuck surgery and it is only by the end of this period that you will see your normal energy and stamina return. Once this happens, you will feel good about yourself and step out of your depression as well.

What should you do after the tummy tuck surgery?

You must be prepared for the discomfort during the post-surgery period. You will have to stay in the sitting position for 2 to 4 days after your procedure. If you do lie down or stand up, your knees must stay bent. If you stand up straight during this period, you could end up ripping your stitches. You will be on pain medication for a few weeks to deal with the discomfort and pain.

The surgery involves your skin being pulled down and tightly repositioned and this is what prevents you from standing straight for about 2 weeks. Any efforts at standing up straight will lead to discomfort, pain and could even rip open your sutures. Due to being bent at all times, a number of patients suffer from lower back pain and other similar problems. However, this clears as soon as your doctor allows you to stand up straight again.

What will happen to your incision scars?

Another issue most patients face is sloughing at the area of incision. Once the area sees some healing, this condition clears up on its own. This may be in the 4th week post your surgery. Whether your skin is pulled or not, sloughing at any surgical incision is a common occurrence.

Your scar may look thick or puffy in the beginning but this flattens out within 6 to 12 months. Some patients opt for liposuction to reduce how the incision appears. In case your incision does not fade away with time, you could opt for a scar revision procedure. This is a safe treatment of scars and in the hands of an experienced doctor, you will see drastic improvement.
