FAQs After Tummy Tuck Surgery

You can go back to work 15 days after a tummy tuck. If we count one week as the week of surgery, it’ll be good for you to rest at home for a week. If you work in a job that requires heavy lifting and strength, you can extend this period a little longer.

First things first: make sure your tummy tuck stitches stay dry. Use the cleansing antiseptics you were given to keep them that way. Clinic Health Beauty will walk you through the recovery process and all the details you need to know.

Every doctor and every clinic has different rules about showering and bathing after a tummy tuck. At Clinic Health Beauty, we suggest you take a shower one or two days after your elbows are removed.

Once you’ve finished showering after your tummy tuck surgery, it’s important to dry your wounds thoroughly. You can use a hairdryer for this. You can also dry your suture areas remotely using a hairdryer. Once you’ve done that, you can apply the wound care your doctor has recommended. It’s best not to keep the shower bath time long after surgery. It’s also best not to clean your wound area by rubbing. And it’s best not to try to remove the tapes on the stitches.

It’s best to avoid lying on your stomach for about a month after tummy tuck surgery. You can sleep on your side and back.

You might feel some discomfort in your abdomen after a tummy tuck. To help with this, try sleeping on your back and use a few pillows to support your back while lying down. This will help prevent your abdomen from stretching. You can also place a pillow under your knees to prevent this.

For the first week after tummy tuck surgery, we ask you to walk slightly bent forward. After about a week and 10 days, you can return to your normal position. Do this gradually. If your abdomen is extremely tense, don’t force it. But don’t get used to walking bent forward.

You should definitely get lipo-drainage massages after a tummy tuck. It’s a good idea to get one starting from the 3rd or 4th day after your surgery. Clinic Health Beauty offers this service to its patients after a tummy tuck.

It’s a good idea to wear your corset for about four to six weeks after your tummy tuck surgery. The corset helps to shape the body, protect the wound, and reduce edema and swelling.

After your tummy tuck surgery, it’s best to rest at home for the first three days. Then, you can take short walks. Just listen to your body. Walking will help reduce edema and swelling by accelerating your blood flow. Avoid any sports movements that will strain your body and stitches for the first two weeks. From the third week on, you can extend your walking distance and increase your pace. Just share the process with your doctor.

Don’t rush into sexual activity after a tummy tuck. Remember that the wound in your abdomen is open to infection. Share this with your partner. He’ll understand. It’s important to wait 20 days for sex after a tummy tuck. Remember to keep your body position under control. Protect your stitches and your open wound. Depending on your healing process, you can increase this period to 1 month.

Once your stitches and wound have healed after a tummy tuck, you can use some scar correction creams. The Clinic Health Beauty team will be there to help you with this. It’s a good idea to get your doctor’s input on scar creams after a tummy tuck.
