I am 1 week post op from a tummy tuck. I have concert tickets that will be on the night of exactly 3 weeks past my tummy tuck. This will also be my first day back at work. Is that too strenuous to only be 3 weeks out of surgery? I don't want to mess up my recovery.
Is It Ok to Go to a Concert Post Tummy Tuck?

Concert after tummy tuck
Have a question? Ask a doctor
Listen to your body
Many patients are feeling ready to get back to their regular activities by the time you're describing. You may wear out a little quicker than usual, so be sure to take breaks and sit down as needed. Basically the rule of thumb is to listen to your body.
Concert post tummy tuck
Go have fun at the concert!! At three weeks post tummy tuck most people should be back to work. The only real exceptions would be a strenuous jobs or a complicated recovery. Therefore sitting for a concert should not be an issue.
Good luck, and thanks for the question.

Thank you for the question. It all depends on your recovery In general you should be able to do non streneous activities after three week. Attending a concert should be fine. As a general rule always confirm with your plastic surgeon.
Going to Concert Three Weeks after Tummy Tuck?
Thank you for the question.
Your plastic surgeon will be in the best position to advise you regarding postoperative activities since he/she will be following your progress closely. If I had to predict, I would suggest that you not plan on a full day of work and going to a concert that evening, three weeks out of your tummy tuck surgery. That amount of activity at that stage in your recovery will be potentially exhausting.
Activities at 3 weeks after tummy tuck
Every patient recovers at her own pace. Every tummy tuck is different. And everyone's job is different.
By three weeks, most of my patients have already been at work for a week, provided the job is not physically stressful. (Someone who digs ditches is back in six weeks.)
If it is to be your first day back it may be a long day. If the concert is more important than that one day of work, you will have a choice to make.
