2 days postop and having pain
Tummy Tuck pain 2 Days Post-op
Pain in the incision area, drain area, or muscle repair is all normal 2 days after a Tummy Tuck. I can not assess the severity of the pain so if you are concerned, you should see your surgeon earlier. You could also try loosening the binder and looking at the area with your surgeon's permission. If you are in doubt, though, have it checked out.
If your pain is not effective, I recommend that you contact your Plastic Surgeon's office to ask about alternatives. It is normal to experience the more severe pain for the first 3-5 days. You can expect to start improving soon.
All the best
