- You truly need to ask your surgeon for instructions on what you can do after surgery.
- If you were my patient, I would want to know how many stairs - and if climbing them is necessary -
- Ideally after a body lift, you are out of bed walking at once but stairs may be too painful for 1-2 weeks.
- I would not want you picking up or caring for a 5 months old child for 2-4 weeks.
