After your abdominoplasty surgery
For the first few days after your abdominoplasty in New York City with plastic surgeon Dr. Zevon, your abdomen will probably be swollen and you’re likely to feel some pain and discomfort, which can be controlled by medication. Depending on the extent of the tummy tuck surgery, you may be released within a few hours or you may have to remain hospitalized for two to three days.
Dr. Zevon who will be performing your abdominoplasty in New York City will give you instructions for showering and changing your dressings. Although you may not be able to stand straight at first, you should start walking as soon as possible.
Surface stitches will be removed in five to seven days, and deeper sutures, with ends that protrude through the skin, will come out in two to three weeks. The dressing on your incision may be replaced by a support garment.
