When can I sleep on my tummy after a tummy tuck op? I'm so used on this and can't get used to sleep on my back.

PS I am 2 weeks post TT ops and I tried sleep on my tummy and it was fine

Sleep

Sleeping on your stomach could decrease the bloodflow to the healing skin and abdominal tissue.  Because of that, the safest thing to do is sleep on your back until you are fully healed.
