How long is normal recovery time after having BBL and TT?
Doctor Answers 3
Multiple procedures, some advices:
For safety reasons, to be a good candidate for those procedures you want at the same time, your labs and cardiovascular preoperative evaluation must be optimal.
Therefore, you must be a healthy person, within an appropriate BMI and no history of diseases that increase the surgical / anesthetic risk degree.
Finally, I recommend you a skilled certified plastic surgeon in body contouring surgery and experienced in cases like yours where the planned operating time is less than five hours.

Tummy tuck recovery time
Stage 1 - The immediate post-operative stage which lasts up to two weeks after surgery. This is the time the drains are in place and I would assess for possible complications such as bleeding, infection, skin loss, etc.
Stage 2 - 2 weeks post-op to 6 weeks after surgery. This is the time I would be looking for possible fluid collections and taking care of these if needed.
Stage 3 - Beyond 6 weeks to 6 months where the incision is healing, the tummy feels more like your own rather than numb, and your energy increases back to normal.
Stage 4 - Beyond 6 months where the incisions lighten, soften, and the tummy tuck is now in the past and life goes on. The incisions may take up to a total of two years to completely heal and lighten as much as they can.
I recommend to discussed this and much more with your surgeon. He or she will be the best source of information. Good luck :)
