Recovery from a Tummy Tuck
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.
