Previously, tummy tuck surgery could involve an uncomfortable recovery period, especially during the first few days.

It works so well, we often need to remind many of them to take it easy after surgery because they feel pretty good! After a tummy tuck, Los Angeles-area patients typically take one to two weeks off from work, depending on the nature of their case. Los Angeles tummy tuck patients should avoid heavy lifting, and should not exercise for at least three weeks following their surgery.
