How long is the hospitalization after abdominoplasty?

I'm about to undergo abdominoplasty. I would like to be back home with my children as soon as possible after the surgery. How long is the usual hospital stay for abdominoplasty?

Between 24 and 48 hours of hospital stay are enough for a total recovery. Remember that it won't be advisable for you to take care of children or start doing household chores during the first couple of weeks.

I perform the procedure of Abdominoplasty as a day case, in a wet technique, without hospitalization. Few cases require one day hospitalization.

The most common is to remain one night in hospital and up to three days.

Usually i discharge my patients on the day after surgery. It would depend on the type od drains placed and the extent of dissection .

Abdominoplasty can performed under a local anaesthetic or a general anaesthetic as a day stay procedure. Patients are able to go home the same day and a community nurse can come in for a home visit the following day. A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals. Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include: . Pregnancy . Aging . Significant fluctuations in weight . Heredity . Prior surgery What it won’t do: A tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program. Although the results of a tummy tuck are technically permanent, the positive outcome can be greatly diminished by significant fluctuations in your weight. For this reason, individuals who are planning substantial weight loss or women who may be considering future pregnancies may be advised to postpone a tummy tuck. Also, a tummy tuck cannot correct stretch marks, although these may be removed or somewhat improved if they are located on the areas of excess skin that will be excised, generally those treated areas below the belly button. Is it right for me? Tummy tuck surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image. Abdominoplasty is a good option for you if: . You are physically healthy and at a stable weight . You have realistic expectations . You are a non-smoker . You are bothered by the feeling that your tummy is too large For more information and before/after photos please check out our website at XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

In the majority of places in north america an abdominoplasty is considered day surgery - you leave the same day as the surgery. i would not recommend traveling for at least 1 week ideally two weeks after an abdominoplasty.

We perform tummy tucks under local anesthesia. You dont need to stay in the hospital, after your procedure. We suggest not to take a long flight, until 3 weeks after your procedure, till your stitches are removed.

Most of my patients stay in hospital for 2 nights after the procedure, however, this may vary depending on the size of the procedure and their recovery. I always ask people not to make any travel plans for 4-6 weeks after surgery, just in case they suffer a complication, as I don't want them to be too far away if they need to see me. For more information, please see my website.

Only overnight hospital stay is enough but you will need 4 days more resting at home but that does not mean you need to stay in bed all time. You can walk and have some coffee or tea get from kitchen act

The usual stay at the hospital would be 4- 6 days and you should not lift any heavy weights atleast for 6 months post surgery.

Surgery can be performed in one day clinic, however one or two nights stay in hospital is often the rule.

The period of hospitalization is 24 hours usually. But the recovery period is 15 to 21days. This time is for monitoring and therapy and lymphatic drainage massage.

We are in the Dominican Republic. if you want a quote to evaluate you send me pictures of the front, right and left side and back, not have to leave your face. In addition to your weight and height.

When evaluating your photos I can give you my recommendations and costs. In addition to make the details of abdominoplasty.

I'll be waiting for the photos to complete its evaluation and proceed to schedule your surgery.
