Recovery from a Tummy Tuck

Recovery
  • You could be released within a few hours or hospitalized for one to two days, depending on the extent of the surgery.
  • Your stomach area will most likely be swollen and uncomfortable for several days.
  • Tightness in the stomach area may make standing up straight difficult or impossible for the first several days. 
  • Stitches are within seven days, after which support garments are recommended.
  • You may feel lethargic for several weeks, and it may take between two and four weeks to feel back to 100%.
  • Light exercise  is recommended after tummy tuck surgery, but vigorous exercise should be avoided for 4 weeks.
