How long is my recovery post Abdominoplasty surgery?

Abdominoplasty surgery is performed under general anaesthetic, usually with a few nights in hospital followed by two to four weeks’ recovery time off work. Wearing a supporting girdle during the recovery period helps optimise results and most patients are able to return to vigorous exercise after about six weeks.

Note that there is often a feeling of tightness in the lower abdomen and there is usually an area of diminished sensation for several months after surgery.
