Some of the medications perscribed to you may be causing constipation. You shoud call your Doctors office and speak to a nurse. If you had surgery this morning, you should be receiving a all checking on you by the office as well. You can ask them if this ois normal. Make sure you are well hydrated.
You should contact your plastic surgeon. If your surgeon is not available, you should still seek medical advice.
Ensure that you are well hydrated, and follow all post operative recommendations given to you.

Thank you for your question. You should urinate without difficulty, but a bowel movement may take 24-48 hours if you did not have anything to eat. Longer than 48 hours should prompt a call to your doctor. I hope this helps!
