Recovering from Your Tummy Tuck

Published on July 12, 2018 by Brian Joseph

If you are interested in getting a tummy tuck, you are probably wondering what the recovery period will be like. Knowing what to expect during your recovery will help you to better prepare for the entire process.

During the first week or so of your recovery, fluid will build up in the area. For the first week, drains will be placed in the area to make the removal of fluid easy. You will be given a compression garment that will need to be worn for around six weeks. Most patients are able to return to work after around two weeks.
