Benefits of abdominoplasty surgery for NYC residents: Manhattan, Westchester, Long Island
What To Expect From Recovery
Following your tummy tuck, Dr. Alizadeh may apply dressings or bandages to your incisions or wrap your abdomen in a compression garment to minimize swelling and support your abdomen during healing. You will be required to wear your compression garment for one or two weeks. Tummy-tuck patients should expect to take two weeks off from work for recovery, and they should refrain from exercise and heavy lifting for six weeks. However, you will be encouraged to walk with assistance as soon as possible after surgery to promote healthy blood circulation and prevent blood clots from forming in your lower extremities.
Any bruising should subside within two to three weeks, and swelling should resolve completely within three to six months. Dr. Alizadeh and his helpful, caring staff at Cosmoplastic Surgery will give you detailed pre- and post-surgery instructions before your NaturaTuck™ Abdominoplasty.
