What Kind of Downtime Can I Expect with a Tummy Tuck and Butt Lift?

I'm thinking about getting a tummy tuck and a butt lift. I also have stretch marks on my stomach and thighs that I want removed, do you think i could function at work if i got these things done at once? and what would be the down payment?

Downtime after tummy tuck and butt lift


These are quite extensive procedures and it has been my experience that it will be 2-3 weeks before returning to activities of daily living and at least 3 months before beginning normal unrestricted unlimited physical exercise.
