Tummy tucks are usually very tender to mildly/moderately painful for most patients especially when the muscles are tightened. A dramatic lessening of the pain results from the use of a painpump that feeds droplets of numbing medicine into the surgical site through threadlike catheters. A fanny pack is worn for a week with the pump in it and the difference is significant in my experience.
