26 Mar Your Abdominoplasty Recovery Checklist
The weather is finally starting to level off as spring flowers and showers begin to pop up. That can only mean one thing – summer is on its way. It’s time to get that flat, toned midsection that you’ve been putting off. You’ve done your research, you know what to expect, and now the only other thing to do is prepare for your big day. Abdominoplasty from John Park MD Plastic Surgery is a great option to remove excess fat and skin that has become resistant to diet and exercise.
We’re just as excited for your big day, but we want to ensure you are prepared for what lies ahead following your tummy tuck procedure. So, here is a recovery checklist that will help you get prepared and have a smooth and comfortable recovery.
Get Your Prescriptions Filled Ahead of Time
Make sure you get your prescriptions from Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. John Park during your pre-surgery appointment. And once you get them, FILL them. Don’t wait. There’s a chance you may experience some discomfort following surgery and if you have your pain medication already filled you won’t have to worry about not being able to manage your side effects immediately. Plus, getting your prescriptions filled before surgery eliminates a stop after your abdominoplasty, allowing you to get home sooner and rest.
Take Care of Household Chores
The last thing you want to worry about after surgery is having to clean your house or take care of household tasks, such as doing laundry or dishes. If you tackle the house cleaning before your tummy tuck, you’ll be able to rest without stressing over the bad smell in the kitchen or if your spouse has clean clothes to wear. You need to focus on yourself during recovery, so take the time beforehand and check off these small but tedious and time-consuming chores. It wouldn’t hurt to freeze some dinners ahead of time too.
Arrange For Childcare or Pet Sitting
Abdominoplasty is invasive surgery, which means, you won’t exactly be up for a play date or taking the dog for his daily strolls around the block. Nor should you be partaking in these types of activities immediately after surgery. Make sure you have someone to either watch or help you watch your children, and the same goes for your pets. The less you have to worry about, the better.
