How long is the recovery for Tummy Tuck revision with no muscle repair?
- 4 months ago
I had an extended tummy tuck 6 years ago. I have developed a large mass of scar tissue for some reason on my lower right side. I also have so loose skin around my incision. My doctor is going to remove the mass of scar tissue and also do a revision.....he states that no muscle repair is needed....he just wants to remove some of the excess skin in the front. I will not be having an extended version of this again.....just removal of skin in the front. My question is this: how long should it take for recovery? With my initial tummy tuck it was awful. It literally took me months to recover. The pain was excruciating. He states that this one will be nothing like the first one. I didn't work at the time I had my initial tummy tuck. This time I have a job and I'm trying to figure out when I'll be able to return, given there are no complications.
