The most important thing to do in preparation for a Tummy Tuck is to prepare your family or caregiver and your home for your post-operative recovery. Make sure that you are going to be comfortable by preparing the area of the house where you will be staying. Remember that climbing stairs will be difficult for the first few days and you should be near a bathroom. For the first few you’re your family member or caregiver will be needed to help you get in and out of bed and to and from the bathroom. You will need them to prepare food for you and help you with your medications.
