Most patients return to work in 2 weeks and are unrestricted in activity in 6 weeks.
Depends if you correct a hernia with the “tummy tuck” and/or do Lipo Sculpture with the procedure. Usually, you get a tight feeling and not as much pain. It may be a little uncomfortable in the first few weeks as you may be bent forward for a bit. Most of my patients have little pain and more tightness. I always do liposuction with the procedure to get the best waist possible and often correct hernias all from the low bikini line incision.
Good luck to you.
A detailed examination will help delineate the best surgical option and provide you a custom quote for your situation.
