Realistic Tummy Tuck Recovery: Essential to Successful Outcome

Once you decide to undergo an abdominoplasty surgery or tummy tuck, do not think that the procedure already ends during the day of operation. Instead, keep in mind that the total outcome of your tummy tuck will depend upon the quality of your post-operative care and the recovery steps that you follow.

Indeed, it is not just about removing excess skin and fat around your waist or reducing stretch marks, you must give time as well for your surgical scar to fully heal and your body to recover after the surgery. For this reason, you have to discuss well with your surgeon regarding the details and specific steps to recovery.

Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Christopher Saunders believes that the best recovery begins with excellent yet realistic postoperative care. Aside from being a topnotch surgeon, he has also authored the book “A Woman’s Guide to the ‘Real-Reality’ of Cosmetic Surgery”, wherein Dr. Saunders has laid down the realistic expectations and preparations that women must have when undergoing any cosmetic surgery procedure.

At his state-of-the-art surgery center, Delaware Plastic Surgeon Dr. Saunders uses a device called “pain buster” which does away the necessity of intravenous medicine and long hospital recovery. Pain buster is considered a major advancement in surgery recovery, as it is really effective in trickling in local anesthetics for pain relief following the cosmetic surgery. Furthermore, the device brings about maximum safety and comfort for all patients.

During discussion process and before actual surgery, Dr. Saunders will explain to you the step-by-step info on realistic tummy tuck recovery. In other words, what should you do during the first few hours after operation and months into the procedure.
