Tummy Tuck Takes Time to Heal but Looks Great

I had a tummy tuck 9 months ago at the age of 64. I found that it took longer to heal than expected although I did not suffer any intense pain.

I had fluid removed on several occassions in the midriff section and had to wear a compression girdle for several months to stop further fluid build up, whilst it healed.

It also took several months for the center of the horizontal incision to heal completely which I found very disappointing as I am very fit and 132 lbs, and usually heal very quickly.

The results are excellant although I am still feeling sore in the area where the tummy muscles were tightened when lifting anything heavy or when I roll over in bed.
