Tummy-Tuck Recovery: Managing Your Pain

Published on December 21, 2018 by Brian Joseph

A tummy tuck can provide amazing aesthetic results, but before you can enjoy them, you’ll need to recovery from the procedure. It is important that you allow your body to heal at its own pace to ensure that your results are not compromised.

During your recovery, there will be some swelling, bruising, and pain around the abdomen. These issues can be properly managed with medication. A local anesthetic may also be used to help control any pain or discomfort in order to reduce the need for pain medication. This local anesthetic is applied to the area using an infusion pump.

Our goal is to ensure that your recovery is as comfortable and easy as possible. If you are interested in getting a tummy tuck, contact Park Avenue Plastic Surgery today to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Joseph.
