TUMMY TUCK OR ABDOMINOPLASTY
SURGERY: This procedure is performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. Other procedures such as BREAST SURGERY, LIPOSUCTION, and ARM LIFTS can often be combined with the TUMMY TUCK procedure. These combinations do not add downtime to the procedure.
AFTER SURGERY: A TUMMY TUCK requires approximately 2-3 weeks of downtime. Drains are routinely used to remove normal, postoperative fluids in the first 1-2 weeks. Patients wear a supportive abdominal binder for approximately 3 weeks. Exercise and most activities are resumed by 3 weeks.
