by Dr Rajat Gupta - RG Aesthetics Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon

One of the most crucial phases of the treatment is the healing following the tummy tuck. If a list of post-operative guidelines is strictly adhered to, the patient will only experience excellent results and prevent complications. Following your plastic Surgeon's advice for tummy tuck patients is crucial because the entire healing period can significantly affect the outcomes and reduce dangers.

You should continue regular things after such a complex interference with caution and consideration. The tummy tuck is a complicated plastic surgery intervention that aims to remove the surplus of skin and fat tissue from the tier of the tummy while strengthening loose abdominal muscles to get a firm and flat belly.

This blog will help you understand the dos and don'ts of tummy tuck recovery and the abdominoplasty healing process. - Keep reading!

Factors Impacting Recovery Period of Tummy Tuck Procedure

Following an abdominoplasty procedure, healing takes time. Several variables can affect healing and recovery, including:

  • The patient's age and state of health

  • The size of the patient

  • The patient's psychological state

  • Underlying medical conditions

  • What kind of abdominoplasty was done

Do's of Abdominoplasty Surgery in Delhi

Eat a diet high in fibre to prevent constipation.

Constipation is one of the problems that could develop following any surgery. Normally, this is only uncomfortable but not a major problem, but after a tummy tuck, it might be a major problem.

This is why avoiding bloating, and constipation is crucial by consuming a diet high in fibre and getting adequate fluids, such as water, herbal infusions, and fresh fruit and vegetable juices. 

Wear the Compression Garment suggested by the Surgeon

Patients getting an abdominoplasty should wear a special compression garment since it can ease some discomforts and help with swelling and bruising.

Regular Walking

Walking is advised as soon as the patient can move around after the results of the general anaesthetic used for this operation wear off. Walking might help you avoid developing a blood clot and naturally lessen the swelling after the stomach tuck procedure.

Don'ts of Abdominoplasty Surgery in Delhi

Walk with your back curved, not straight.

The cosmetic Surgeon will recommend you avoid walking with your back too straight for a week or two following the treatment until the incisions start healing to prevent undue strain on the incisions.

Avoid taking a hot bath.

After surgery, soaking in a hot tub with bubbles may seem like the perfect way to unwind, but doing so is not advised because hot water encourages bleeding and infection.

Avoid going to the gym.

After the tummy tuck procedure, you must avoid strenuous physical activity for at least six to eight weeks. Lifting weights can cause the incisions to rupture even if you seem up to the task and possibly cause pain and suffering later.

Summing Up!

Following tummy tuck surgery, you must follow a few instructions to achieve the greatest results and prevent any issues.
