How Soon Can I Get Back to My Exercise Routine?
While the light movement is encouraged in order to keep your blood flowing and decrease the chances of clotting in your legs, you should not push yourself to do anything physically before you’re ready. Full rest is recommended for at least two weeks. Dr. Lawton can advise what activities you can perform during the first four to six weeks. However, normal exercise should not commence for 6-8 weeks or until approved by Dr. Lawton.
What’s Full Recovery After Tummy Tuck?
It will be several months before you are fully back to normal, but, unlike non-invasive procedures, a tummy tuck typically won’t need to be repeated. Once recovery is complete, results should be fairly stable and long-lasting. However, if you get pregnant after a tummy tuck, it can essentially undo the process.
If there’s anyone contemplating a tummy tuck & breast lift with an augmentation, I highly recommend Dr. Lawton! I brought my aunt to her after seeing my friends incredible results. My aunt lost over 100lbs & had lost all the volume on her breasts & had tons of loose skin on her tummy. I went with my aunt, who only speaks spanish, to her initial consult. She wanted to get her breasts done first, but after Dr. Lawton & Erin educated us & explained the process of doing both tummy & breasts at the same time, she booked the whole makeover! She is almost 3 months post op & looks and feels amazing! I wasn’t able to make all her appointments, but Erin was sweet enough to call me during the visit so I could translate. I can’t say enough about how amazing Erin is! She’s the best patient liaison ever! We had so many questions, more than the average person, I’m sure, and Erin was always happy to help. Thank you Lawton team for making my auntie so beautiful!
AD, Happy Patient
