4 days post tummy tuck operation

4 days post tummy tuck operation and I’m still bent over. Really burns to straighten up. Got full tt with Lipo and muscle repair. Any suggestions? Support?


  1. Sarah says:

    Are you wearing your compression garment?

  2. Cheryl says:

    You will straighten up. Some straighten quicker than others.

  3. Debra says:

    No garment. My dr does it differently

  4. Bobbi says:

    Are you supposed to stand straight already?? My IS had me hunched over for over 2 weeks after tummy tuck, before he had me try to stand straight. But every plastic surgeon is different.

  5. Cheryl says:

    My plastic surgeon had me hunched over for a week then slowly I could start standing up.

  6. Michael says:

    I rec use a cane to take pressure off back. Unrecognized taking tension off incision for one week then start straightening up. The bent position is to you don’t bust stitches.

    don’t over do it…I used a can too…focus on walking slow and as up right as possible. It does get better. I am 16 days post tummy tuck. arm lifts, breast lifts, fleur de lis tummy tuck, Mons lift, and lipo. Everyday you get better. Be aware though that you have been through a lot and you may get emotional from time to time. Let yourself cry or whatever…you will feel better for it.
