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?

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.
