A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a method of recontouring the abdomen to make it look fit, toned, and tight. This procedure is quite effective and is followed by a period of tummy tuck recovery.
Tummy tuck surgery, like the majority of plastic surgery procedures, features tissue alteration. The body’s natural response to this type of tissue alteration is swelling and bruising, and patients may also feel a measure of post-surgical discomfort. In order to deal with these issues during your tummy tuck recovery, your doctor will provide various solutions, including prescriptions for medication.
