As with any cosmetic surgery, you will be asked to do things in preparation for your operation and as part of your aftercare to ensure you receive the best possible treatment. For example, you will be asked to fast for a few hours prior to the procedure and you may be asked to even sleep with your legs bent for a while afterwards so that you do not agitate the wounds.
Recovery time: 6 weeks is generally the average amount of time to fully recover from an abdominoplasty, however this varies depending on the type of surgery you receive and on the individual themselves. You may be advised to wear a form of support garment during this period. The recovery time breakdown is usually as follows:
Back to work – 2 to 4 weeks.
More strenuous activity – 4 to 8 weeks or more.
Fading and flattening of scars – 3 months to 2 years.
There are also various types of “tummy tuck” available, such as a “mini tummy tuck”, which is obviously a smaller procedure for less serious cases, and an extended or “full tummy tuck” for more serious cases. If you have any questions, be sure to ask Mr Marando during your consultation as you need to be 100% committed and sure of yourself if you are to undergo this treatment.
