What should I do to raise my hemoglobin? After a tummy tuck can I sleep in a normal bed?
If you are anemic, you may not be a good candidate for an elective tummy tuck. I would discuss this at length with your operative surgeon beforehand. Usually there is very little blood loss with this procedure. Many patients find that sleeping in a recliner is more comfortable right after a tummy tuck. Again, your operative surgeon can give you his/her guidelines for post-operative care, and what to expect.
