Pain after a tummy tuck
Pain after a tummy tuck can last several weeks, and I usually recommend massaging with oils 3 months afterward.
When should pain subside from a Tummy Tuck? Are essential oils okay to use on a incision? If so, when?
Most patients start to feel substantially better 3-5 weeks after surgery, but everyone is different. I would follow your surgeon's recommendation about what you can put on your scar and when you can/should do it. Each surgeon has a different recommendation.
Tummy Tuck recovery
Pain from a tummy tuck usually subsides over 6-8 weeks. Be careful not to try to move the recovery period forward to fast. The oils seem okay at this point but ask your surgeon.
