A tummy tuck is a procedure used to remove excess fat around the waist and lower abdomen. Scheduling your tummy tuck surgery can be an exciting time, but it can also leave you feeling unsure with how to prepare. Below are a few tips on how to get ready for your tummy tuck transformation.
If you smoke, it is advised that you quit smoking at least six weeks prior to surgery. Being in the best health possible is vital for a successful and stress-free recovery. Smoking can prohibit healthy healing and cause complications.
Prepare The Home
Prepare your home for your recovery time. Create a comfortable space to recover the first few days’ post-surgery. Lay out a few books and magazines or your favorite DVD’s. Grab a few extra blankets and a water bottle as well as pillows to keep your body elevated. It is important to get as much rest as possible the first few days.
Recruit Helping Hands
Make sure to arrange for a ride home and recruit someone to assist you following surgery. You will need someone to drive you home, and it will also be helpful to have someone take care of any children or pets you may have during the day.
Undergoing a tummy tuck will leave you feeling confident and excited for your transformation. If you are interested in a tummy tuck or have any questions, contact Dr. Azouz Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery in Dallas, Texas for more information.
