Recovery Process After Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tighten the muscles to create a flatter, smoother, and more toned midsection. The procedure can help to address a range of concerns, including loose or sagging skin after weight loss or pregnancy, abdominal muscle separation, and stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

The process that follows a successful tummy tuck surgery is the recovery process. The more attention is paid to the details mentioned in this article throughout the recovery process, the greater the benefit from recovery and surgery will be.

The pain and suffering experienced by patients after abdominoplasty is considered quite normal. In addition, the pain and pain caused by the surgery can be slowed down with the painkillers prescribed by your doctor.

After the surgery, the operated area must be well protected. No external impact should be allowed and the patient should avoid sudden movements.

You should pay attention to reflexes such as sneezing, coughing, startling and straining, and even minimize these movements if you can control them. Because if these reflexes are severe, the stitches may open or break.

Another issue that should be taken into consideration is the patient's posture during the post-tummy tuck surgery process.

Trying to stand upright after surgery is a very dangerous and incorrect move. It is recommended that the patient remain inclined between 10 and 30 degrees after tummy tuck surgery.

In addition, after the tummy tuck surgery, the patient is recommended to quit substances such as smoking and alcohol that will affect the body's immune system. Additionally, these substances should not be used for at least 1 month before surgery.

After abdominoplasty, you can walk approximately 4 to 5 hours later, provided your doctor approves and someone else supports you.

You are also allowed to walk the day after surgery without any help from anyone else.

During walking, pain may be felt in the area where the surgery was performed. Since this situation is caused by your stitches, you do not need to be afraid.

If the pain and pain felt during your hospital stay is too much, you can call the nurse and ask her to give you the painkiller prescribed by your doctor.

Doctors recommend that patients use a specially made corset so that the operated area can take the desired shape. The corset should not be removed during the day unless possible.

A specially purchased corset to be worn after abdominoplasty should be used for at least 30 days. Thanks to the corset that will be used for an average of 30 days, the success rate of the surgery will increase much more.

During the recovery period after the surgery, the stitches do not fully heal during the first 7 days. However, patients are generally allowed to take a bath after the third day on average. There is no harm in taking a bath after the 3rd day, as per one's own preference.
