Getting a tummy tuck? Before you can show off those new, perfect abs, you’ll need to take diligent care of the area as part of the abdominoplasty recovery process. It may take time, but in the end, toned abs and a trim tummy are worth the wait.

One of the biggest concerns relating to abdominoplasty recovery is going back to work. You won’t be able to return to work for a period of around one month, since your tissues will still be healing. However, once the recovery is complete, you’ll be able to resume your normal schedule without a problem.

Speak to skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. R. Lee Steely regarding abdominoplasty recovery. You’ll learn about the projected total recovery time, recommended discomfort management methods, ways to reduce swelling, and more. To set up an appointment with Dr. Steely, contact our office.
