Tummy Tuck and Drinking
Each surgeon has different guidelines for postoperative care. As long as a patient is not on pain medication, patients can generally be able to drink in moderation. Consult with your surgeon as he or she knows the scope of your surgery and the specifics about you.

Thank you for your question. Please ask your surgeon when it is appropriate to consume alcoholic beverages. Generally speaking this is not recommended while narcotics are still being utilized. Best of luck.
