How Soon Can I Exercise After Tummy Tuck with NO Muscle Repair?

Tummy tuck and exercise
After a tummy tuck, we let patients return to unrestricted exercise 4 weeks after surgery. Since you had no muscle work, you could probably start sooner, but I think it is best to be conservative and let the tissues heal.
You need to ask your plastic surgeon what his/her feelings are on this. After 2 weeks following the procedure you had I would allow you to start to return to your regular activity but your doctor may have a different recommendation. You should follow his or her advice.
