I tell my patients to have plenty of Gatorade around and to rent a Lazy Boy chair.  This really helps with post-op healing and positioning.

Pulling, pushing and lifting are not permited after tummy tuck operations for 10days to few weeks.You need some assistance in taking care of infants and young children in your routine and daily life.
