POST-SURGERY HEALING PROCESS
After abdominoplasty surgery, it is usually necessary to stay in the hospital within 1-2 days and at the end of this process, the people are discharged after completing the necessary examinations. Drains placed during surgery are usually removed within 3-5 days.
It is recommended not to take a bath for 2-3 days during the postoperative recovery period. At the end of this process, you can take a bath and return to light daily work, but avoiding intense activities, not lifting heavy and avoiding leaning forward while walking are among the behaviors that should be considered. After a week, the stitches are removed. After the surgery, it is possible to return to work life in 3-4 weeks, depending on the recovery speed of the person.
After the surgery, people are expected to wear a special corset for 1 month. This corset helps the abdomen into the desired shape. It may take longer for the area to recover without using a corset. The duration of the reduction of suture and incision scars due to the operation varies between 3-6 months.
