3 Helpful Hints for an Easier Recovery after Your Tummy Tuck

Woman in blueMany patients shy away from getting a tummy tuck because they think it will require a long, uncomfortable recovery. However, there are some simple steps you can take to enjoy the benefits a tummy tuck has to offer while also planning a relatively smooth and stress-free recovery.*

1. Clear Your Schedule

A tummy tuck is surgery, so you will need to give your body some down time to recuperate. The more you rest, the faster your body can heal,* so plan on spending most of your days relaxing, watching movies or catching up on reading. Clear your schedule as much as possible so that you can spend as much time as possible taking it easy and focusing on your recovery.

2. Plan Ahead

You shouldn’t have to worry about never-ending daily chores during your recovery, so plan ahead to take those obligations off your to-do list. Stock your freezer or have a pile of takeout menus available so you won’t have to concern yourself with cooking during your recovery. Arrange for housekeepers to come in to help with household duties and ask friends or family to help with caring for pets or children.

3. Choose a Drain-Free Procedure

While a traditional tummy tuck requires the use of messy, unpleasant drains after surgery, there is a better option. Our exclusive C.L.A.S.S.® drain-free tummy tuck utilizes a unique stitching technique that eliminates the need for post-surgical drains in 99 percent of our patients.* The benefits of a drain-free tummy tuck include a faster, more comfortable recovery and contouring that includes liposuction.*
