Recovery after a Tummy Tuck
Following your abdominal contouring surgery, you will be cared for by the nursing staff in the recovery room. When you are fully awake and comfortable, you will be released to the care of a family member or friend with a list of after-care instructions. There will be guidelines for after-care including lifting restrictions and limited exercise. Postoperatively, you must refrain from strenuous activity for up to six weeks and wear an elastic support garment for two to three weeks.
We will schedule post operative follow up appointments in one of our Minneapolis metro area or St. Cloud, Minnesota clinics for the day after your surgery and periodically throughout the next 4-6 weeks.
