Evita’s surgeon has been performing lipoabdominoplasty safely and effectively for many years. However, Tummy tuck is a major body contouring procedure, and, as such, it needs long recovery time and careful post-surgical care.
Patients need to rest for at least two weeks. They should plan to take at least this much time off from work and stay in Korea.
It is important for patients to stop smoking and maintain a healthy diet. Patients should also sleep with their heads elevated for at least 1 week after their surgery.
After operation, you will visit Evita Clinic everyday. We will check the wound & amount of drainage. If the wound is clean and drainage is below 30cc. Our surgeon will remove it. Also you have to wear a compression garment. Around your stomachs, compression garment can help minimize the risk of blood clots.
Usually, 1 weeks later, Stiches are removed step by step, And changed to Steri-Strip tape or Skin-Bond. That time, you can start stretching and do mild exercises.
