What can I do to improve the chance of healing after a tummy tuck?

The best thing you can do to improve your healing after a tummy tuck is to take care of yourself. Not smoking is a key factor in good healing. If you smoke, you need to STOP at least six weeks before surgery. In addition, get plenty of rest, eat well, stay hydrated and follow the doctors instructions. We provide all of our patients with a scar recovery gel/treatment plan to help make sure the resulting scar heals well.
