During your abdominoplasty recovery, you’ll need to be careful with the recontoured area, since your body will have gone through a lot of changes. Part of being careful is wearing a bandage around your stomach or a compression garment, which will keep your tissues in place and healing.

Having help at home during abdominoplasty recovery is recommended, and you might need to miss up to a month of work. For six weeks, to keep those tissues healing nicely, avoid heavy exercise and anything else that would be physically taxing.

Dr. Patrick Felice, a board-certified plastic surgeon, understands the abdominoplasty recovery process and how it can positively affect the results of a tummy tuck. If you make sure to follow Dr. Felice’s post-operative care directions, your recovery period can go smoothly and without any issues. Contact our office to set up a consultation today.
