Body Lift Recovery
- 3 years ago
Would be very appreciative of anyone's candid comments about body lift recovery and also how common incision openings/wound healing issues occur. I would be flying out of state over my kids spring vacation while they are with their dad to have the surgery and would basically have about 9 or 10 days to be on the mend before I had to fly home and at least be able to take over some basic responsibilities with my kids like taking them 5 min. away to school. They are old enough to do bathing, dressing, etc. independently and we could eat out for a few more days but it's not like I could have a 4 week lounging around recovery. I'm also concerned about being alone in a hotel room for my recovery with regard to eating healthy meals. My plastic surgeon also talked about my giving myself injections that would further protect against blood clots. Just sounds really intense. I'm 55, in good health, and not a weight loss patient. My issues are more aging related and that I never had good, tight, skin to begin with and also child bearing did not help.
