Tummy tuck healing

After abdominoplasty it is important to keep diet regime, it is caused by changes in the placement of guts. It is not good to task the peristalsis. Bandaging with abdominal belt can ease further movements and healing. It is important to care about the scars. Pressure massages can soften the scars and improve the healing. As a bonus you can also use silicone strips that also soften the scars. Some clinics recommend additional enzyme therapy (wobezym) or therapy with biostimulation laser. Lotion like Heparoid and Hirudin help well with swellings and bruises. Removal of large part of skin causes a tension in the scar and the patients relieve it by little bending. This state should be temporary and should fade within 3 weeks.

You have to take care of the scar further on, carefully hide it against sun for at least 4 months and then use sunscreen with high UV factor.
