How long will I be down after surgery?

Everyone heals differently, but typically you will require two weeks offwork following a tummy tuck procedure. You should not drive for one to two weeks following your surgery. You will be required to not lift anything heavy or do housework for four to six weeks following surgery.After four weeks you will be allowed to do light exercise such as stationary bike, treadmill, walking, and similar activities. Most people are back to normal activity after six weeks.
