Tummy tuck and menstrual cycle

In my practice I would have no problem with you using tampons, make sure you change them regularly, but as alwys please discuss with your plastic surgeon.

Tampon use after tummy tuck is not a problem.

The "stress" of surgery often causes premature menstrual periods. Tampon use is perfectly fine. Wash your hands before you touch your incision or drain site. Do not worry, we see this all the time! Best wishes!

Tampon use after abdominoplasty

You can use a tampon 3 days after abdominoplasty so long as you change it frequently to reduce the risk of toxic shock syndrome. and so long as your plastic surgeon agrees that you may do so.
