If a tummy tuck is part of your procedure, don't count on feeling like doing much for the first 5 days, but that is quite variable from person to person. Adhere to your surgeon's advice rather than any advice you get on line. 

So long as you are not lifting anything heavy and you refrain from activities that hurt, you should be safe. You may find your self a lot more fatigued than you expect, so plan light days.

Thanks for your question, best wishes.

I doubt you will feel much like tourist with that kind of surgery. You will feel the need to rest and recover and Florida is not a bad place to do that but I would not consider it a vacation.
