Abdominoplasty Recovery

Abdominoplasty – The Recovery Period

After an abdominoplasty at our Miami, Florida center, patients will experience a minimum amount of swelling and soreness in the upper and lower abdomen region. Dr. Gershenbaum will prescribe pain medication to relieve the discomfort and ensure the most pleasant recovery possible. Recovery from abdominoplasty is similar to that of a C-section or hysterectomy for those who have had these types of procedures.

Although patients are able to move, the first week after abdominoplasty is generally limited to bed-rest, with knees bent and back elevated. It generally takes two to three weeks before patients can do more strenuous activity. Exercise can usually resume between four to six weeks after the abdominoplasty. The patient will continue to wear an abdominal binder for two to four weeks following the surgery.

Recovery and healing after abdominoplasty varies from patient to patient, depending on the extent of surgery. Complete healing takes time and patience, taking up to twelve months.
