Tummy Tuck Postoperative Care
A tummy tuck, also called an abdominoplasty, is a popular procedure for many of our guests who choose to complete their postoperative care at Pearl Recovery Retreat and Wellness. Our expert staff and nurses are well-versed in the needs that come with postoperative care for tummy tucks. Keep reading to find out what to expect during a tummy tuck surgery recovery and why staying at Pearl Recovery Retreat and Wellness is the best option.
Rest and Relax
The most important element of tummy tuck postoperative care is to stay rested and relaxed in bed right after your surgery. A tummy tuck is a fairly extensive surgery on a part of your body that is used in basically every movement your body does. You will feel sore and swollen in your abdomen for several days after the procedure. The less straining, twisting, and turning you do, the better it is for your postoperative care overall.
When you stay at Pearl Recovery Retreat and Wellness for your postoperative care, our expert nurses will make sure you are positioned and comfortable in your bed while you heal. Your abdomen will need to stay bent to not put unnecessary strain on your muscles as they heal. Completing your postoperative care in one of our luxurious recovery suites means your stay will be the epitome of comfort and relaxation.
Taking Care of the Incisions
Another important element of your abdominoplasty postoperative care is ensuring the incisions and sutures heal properly. Depending on the extent of the work done during your procedure, you may have small tubes in your abdomen to drain excess blood and fluid as well as the incisions from the procedure itself. At Pearl Recovery, our nurses are well-versed in the specific postoperative care instructions of all the best surgeons in the Los Angeles area, so you can rest assured knowing your postoperative care is in the best hands. Your bandages will be changed regularly and your incisions will be monitored for any signs of infection, and if your surgeon requests any particular steps for your care, our nurses will make sure they are followed to the letter.
