10 Days Post Mommy Makeover Tummy Tuck Concern
It is best to await your plastic surgeon's instruction as to removing any strips or patches. She or he will either do so at your next follow-up appointment, or, suggest a time that you may do so. If you have concerns about your #healing, or pain that you question to be unusual, it is important to call your plastic surgeon to discuss these further asked to be examined.
Your #healing will continue for 2-3 months for the early period. This includes some swelling, bruising, malposition, color differences. The purpose of the post-procedure #garment is to provide some gentle #support and to reduce swelling following a #TummyTuck or #Abdominoplasty. If it feels too tight or causes pain, take it off. Patients wear the #elastic garment for several weeks after surgery, as directed by their doctor. Some choose to wear it longer for several months for comfort.
