Return to Work After Tummy Tuck
Most tummy tuck patients can return home the same day. Return to work is typically 10 days. Return to the gym for select cardio at 3 weeks. Weight training and yoga can resume at 6 weeks.
Tummy tuck and return to work
I think for most tummy tuck patients if they heal without complications can go back to desk work within a week to ten days. Heavy lifting should wait 6-8 weeks.
