In our last blog, we discussed some of the details regarding an abdominoplasty, otherwise known as a tummy tuck. In this installment, we will go through the process of what happens following the surgery in the critical phase known as tummy tuck recovery.
Tummy tuck recovery is an important time when the surgery site must heal. The time it takes to recover varies based on several factors, including the extent of the surgery and the age of the patient. Generally, patients should plan on about two weeks for post-operative healing. To help speed this process up, be sure to follow all of Dr. Golger’s instructions. Vitamin supplements may also be helpful.
