Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
What to expect: The Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Procedure
For several weeks afterwards, your activity will be limited from lifting anything heavy or performing excessively strenuous activity (e.g., sit-ups). You will have swelling afterwards, and your incisions may have a small amount of bleeding from them. The scars are permanent, and will at first be noticeable, but almost all of them fade with time. Your incision will be covered with Steri-Strips, or white surgical bandages, which will either fall off on their own, or which Dr. Shore will remove later in the office.
