Having tummy tuck on 19th; what will I be able to do 2 days after op?

Post op activity following a tummy tuck
With the new drug, Exparel, a long acting local anesthetic that lasts around 3-4 days, ambulation is easier and less narcotic pain usage has contributed to a quicker recovery than previously. Ask if Exparel is available for your tummy tuck.
