I was very pleased with my abdominoplasty done in 2007. It has given me the self confidence I needed after having had a c-section and weight gain/loss over 10 years. I was blown away by the customer service and the genuine support I received before, during and after my procedure. I have recommended so many people because of this awesome experience at Center for Plastic Surgery.”

Three to five days after your surgery, you will return to the office for removal of drains. You will continue to wear the support garment for three weeks except when you bathe. While you should avoid strenuous exercise or athletics during this time, we will encourage you to walk. Walking will decrease the risk of complications. Within seven to ten days, you will most likely be comfortable enough to resume light activities. Your complete return to normal activity levels will take about three weeks. Complications from a tummy tuck are uncommon. There are rare instances of skin damage that can extend the healing period. Your incisions from a tummy tuck are easily concealed by underclothing or swimsuits.
