How long do I need to stay in town after a tummy tuck?
It looks like you are an excellent candidate for a full tummy tuck. This involves an incision from hip bone to hip bone just above your pubis. All of the skin from your belly button down to pubic bone is removed, and the abdominal muscles are tightened from the breast bone down. You will lose a bit of your tattoo and it will be relocated lower (closer to your hip).
I have many, many patients who travel for surgery in my office. Because I do a no-drain tummy tuck, and baring any complications, I typically advise my patients that they are cleared to travel back home 4-5 days post op, however, I also advise that they will certainly not feel great and may be more comfortable waiting 7 or so days. The travel guidelines can vary from surgeon to surgeon, and I would defer to the instructions that your surgeon gives you.
Best of luck
Tummy Tuck Plans
It appears that you would be a good candidate for a tummy tuck but there is no substitute for a personal examination by your surgeon. I am sure there are excellent surgeons in Omaha but you should be very clear about the possible problems that may arise when having surgery far from home. In the event you have postoperative problems you may need to travel back to Omaha and this could erase any cost benefits you thought you had achieved. You need to speak with your surgeon in Omaha to learn how long you will be staying following your surgery.
