The hardest thing to deal with after tummy tuck

What did you girls find the hardest to deal with after surgery when you had tummy tuck ? Just want to be prepared !


  1. Karen says:

    For me it was resting and bending.
    You will use your toes for everything

  2. Cherie says:

    Thanks Karen ! Any other tips ?

  3. Tracy says:

    Feeling well enough to do things and realising that I really wasn’t!

  4. Shalako says:

    I agree with the resting !!! I find I get soo stiff and sore .

  5. Tracy says:

    I used to get up every hour and do a short walk, sometimes slightly less than an hour between sometimes more if I had a sleep! It’s just really important for the first few weeks after tummy tuck to basically do nothing but rest and gentle walks, The best way to look at it is we pay a lot of money to get good results why ruin them because we think we are superwoman and have to get back to doing what we were before surgery straight away! No cleaning or “just picking up a few things” is worth ruining results or getting a seroma for!

  6. Shalako says:

    Completely agree Tracy . It’s been hard to just not do anything and in one or 2 instances I’ve probably done to much! Just gotta take it easy! Looking forward to my first post op check up tomorrow!

    Take it easy, have little walks don’t over do, loved my feet helped with heaps haha, I hated getting dressed trying not to bend, getting up and down once moving around was easier
