Re:getting tummy tuck with lipo
I did my Tummy tuck one month ago in The Windsor Breast and Tummy Tuck Centre. They advised to take complete rest for four weeks. I felt fine just within first two weeks. But felt a little hard on walking and all. So I kept doing light jobs on that week. From the third week I was perfectly all right. It is said that the recovery time completely depends upon the type of Abdominoplasty you choose for. I did a normal surgery. If you are doing mini abdominoplasty two weeks is enough to recover completely. As you are doing the lipo and tummy tuck together, it may take a month for recover completely.
And about the pain, of course it will be there just after the surgery. It will gradually decrease with the intake of medicines.

Recovery time for tummy tuck is 4 to 6 week and it will take a year to disappear scars. You can go to your work after 4 weeks.

Recovery time after a tummy tuck will differ from person to person. Most patients will gradually recover over the course of the first 10 days, becoming more physically active as they feel stronger. Usually by 10 days they can resume driving as long as they’re not taking any pain medicine. Within 3 weeks, patients can expect to feel about 85% to 90% normal. Abdominal exercising should be avoided for approximately 8 weeks after the surgery date to allow complete healing.
