Tummy Tuck Scar Healing

tummy tuck?

Does anyone know about the healing preccess after a tummy tuck. I have heard different things. How long afterwards can you exercise? How long afterwards can you tan? Is the scar really really bad for a long time? Let me know

I just went in for a consultation and they told me the scar is really bad for the first few months, but it will fade just like any other scar, it really just depends on you and how well you heal. When you have a tummy tuck you have a lot of swelling and so they insert a tube inside of you that has to be removed one week after surgery, the tube is put in to drain the fluid from the swelling. You will have to wear a body girdle for 6 weeks after the surgery which can only be removed to bath and then it must be put back on immediately. So I would assume for at least 6 weeks you will not be able to exercise. Also, when the doc goes in for the tummy tuck they will do lipo around the abdomen and also tie your stomach muscles back together on the inside (I am not sure of the exact medical terminology for this procedure) and basically pull them back together from where they have stretched due to carrying a child. You can tell the doctor if you want the scar low or high. My doctor told me she would do my scar as low as possible so that I can wear hip huggers. Also, your original belly button stays in place. Most doctors give a free consultation, before doing this you should get a few different doctors to examine you and give opinions and also see pictures of their work. The bigger you are, the more you have removed, the higher chances you have of complication, from what I have heard.
