Planning your plus size tummy tuck

It is your body and your vision that is most important. When you work with Dr. Basu, you will feel supported, empowered, and understood.

Your health will also be assessed, and a customized health regimen will be provided to follow prior to your surgical appointment.

What should I expect during the procedure?

You will be under general anesthesia and will not experience any pain during the procedure. The incision length and location will vary, based upon your individual condition. During surgery, any hernias will be repaired, the underlying muscles structure tightened, and excess skin, fat, and tissue removed, after which the incisions will be carefully and delicately sutured to limit scarring.

When you become alert after surgery, you will be wearing compression bandaging or a special garment that will provides support and pressure to aid in healing and limit swelling.

What is recovery like?

It is advised that you plan on taking two weeks off of work to rest and recover, after which you will begin to feel like yourself – only better, as your tummy zone is now slimmer, and free from excess skin, fat, and tissue.

During your recovery you should focus on resting, eating healthy foods, staying hydrated, and avoiding putting any stress on the surgical site. Gentle walks can help to speed healing.

You will need to avoid strenuous activity for at least six weeks, and only begin exercise or activities after Dr. Basu gives you the go-ahead.
