    Tummy Tuck After Care After Care

    Previously, tummy tuck surgery could involve an uncomfortable recovery period, especially during the first few days. Our tummy tuck surgeons use either a ON-Q® pain relief system or the new long-lasting anesthetic Exparel® to make recovery for patients much more comfortable.

    The ON-Q® relief is used for up to one week and runs by itself 24/7, needing no adjustments. The system provides a continuous infusion of a local anesthetic directly to the treatment area for postoperative pain management.

    Exparel® is a non-narcotic local analgesic. Long-acting, it is a slow release injectable pain medicine that is commonly used for breast and tummy tuck surgeries. It can relieve pain for 72 hours with one injection.

    Patients often comment on how easy their recovery process was using these pain control systems. With their pain under control, they are better able to focus on healing and getting back to their life. (We usually have to remind them to continue taking it easy, as 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. We recommend that they avoid heavy lifting and exercise for at least three weeks following their surgery.
