Interested in undergoing abdominoplasty surgery? You may be curious about the healing period. Many of the measures you should take are quite simple. Here is some information that will help you have an optimal tummy tuck recovery process.
The first day following the tummy tuck may involve a fair amount of abdominal soreness and pain. Your doctor will prescribe appropriate pain medication, so be sure to follow the post-operative care instructions.
Avoid aspirin and other NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), as these can exacerbate bleeding during your tummy tuck recovery.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Mofid will be happy to create a surgical plan for your abdominoplasty and answer any questions you may have about the tummy tuck recovery process. To set up a consultation with Dr. Mofid, contact our office.
