3 Tips to Help You Heal Faster after a Tummy Tuck

After you’ve decided to have a tummy tuck, it’s only natural that you want to be able to show off your sleeker, smoother new figure as soon as possible. While you don’t want to rush your recovery, there are a few things you can do to help make the healing process go as smoothly as possible.

1. Follow Your Plastic Surgeon’s Guidelines

   Your plastic surgeon will be your best resource, even after your procedure is over.

 If you have any questions or concerns about your recovery, don’t hesitate to seek your plastic surgeon’s professional advice. It’s also crucial that you follow any guidelines they’ve outlined for you. Recovery tips might include such things as wearing a compression garment, moving around to keep your blood flowing and sleeping on your back instead of your stomach.

2. Listen to Your Body

One of the most important things to remember throughout your tummy tuck recovery process is that your body will tell you what it needs. When you begin to feel ready to introduce more physical activity into your daily routine, take it slowly and heed your body’s cues. Don’t push yourself to do too much too soon, even if you are anxious to return to life as usual and fully enjoy your tummy tuck results.

3. Kick the Habit

By now, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that smoking is detrimental to your health. Cigarettes can also hinder your healing process and lead to complications during recovery. For a speedy, smooth recovery, kick the habit for good several weeks before your surgery, and don’t pick it back up again.
