Try wait 4-6 weeks

After doing your due diligence and choosing the right surgeon for you, hopefully, based on the surgeon being experience board certified plastic surgeon and checking the before and after pictures in the photo gallery, as well as the reviews on 'Realself' , it is very important that you protect your investment.
Follow the surgeon's instruction and be careful not to damage your result. I have seen patients who turned a great surgical result to a mediocre one...
In my practice, I instruct my tummy tuck patients not to engage in strenuous physical activity and avoid high heels for 6 weeks. Loosing your balance and falling can be hurtful to your good outcome, if it occurs before the healing is complete.
An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure !
All the best,
