After your tummy tuck procedure, you will be bruised and swollen. There will be discomfort, which will be controlled with pain medication prescribed by Dr. Zeuke. The first two days are the most uncomfortable, and after that you will notice a dramatic improvement in how you feel.
Following your surgery you will recover in one of the beautiful partner hotels. You will receive a care package from us and our staff is available to you while you stay with us. Having our staff visit you in your hotel room the next day is less straining on your system as opposed to driving back to the clinic to be seen.
You will see Dr. Zeuke the day after your surgery and at specified intervals during the weeks following your surgery. This is done so that the doctor can personally monitor your recovery process, and to ensure that you have the best results possible.
It is not uncommon to feel very weak and light-headed first 48 hrs after the surgery. This means you will be prone to fainting, which is why it is important you have a responsible adult with you at all times when you are up and walking.
Upon returning home, you can shower, but it’s smart to have somebody assist you so you’re not left alone. A sponge bath is probably the better alternative initially. Also note if you happen to have drains, you cannot get them wet. To avoid straining your sutures, walking in a slightly stooped position is recommended for the first 14 days. You can gradually become more and more upright as the days progress.
It’s important to flex your feet at the ankles, in order to activate the calf muscles so they pump blood out of the legs, reducing your risk of blood clots. You should do this throughout the day while lying down or sitting.
After about a week, you will be able to move about your home doing light activities, like walking, sitting, flexing your knees and hips and limited household chores. You may ride in a car, but no driving.
Most patients return to work after 10 days, but avoid lifting, stooping, prolonged standing and any strenuous activity. You may begin to drive after 14 days as long as you no longer are taking pain medication. Full exercising and strenuous activities are to be avoided for 3 full months.
It’s quite common to experience numbness and occasional twinges of pain in your abdomen in the months following your surgery. You may also experience intermittent swelling, so you may want to wear compression garments for extra support.

I had neck/jaw Lipo on Friday evening 16/10/15 after wanting it done since I was 16 as I have never had a jaw line or definition in my neck as always had a slope.The team have been absolutely fantastic. First of all arranging it on a Friday evening so I could have longer to recover over the weekend so I can go back to work on Monday. The communication from everyone has been fantastic. The procedure was great (If you can say great about a tube sucking out fat from your neck!). But seriously made me feel such at ease, comfortable and felt in such safe hands. The surgeon was so meticulous and careful which was great as the neck and jaw are visible to all. I was given a number of one of the surgeons whom I could contact if I had any queries or problems and also Michelle's contact details. This I must say has been extremely helpful. Seriously would not get that kind of patient care and attention anywhere I know and from anywhere I know of people have gone to. Great price, great customer care and attention and great professional and qualified team. Thank you to you all, it really means so much to me, its a massive life changer for me and I have all of you to thank for that! :)
