Dr. Doyle understands that many patients at her East Greenwich plastic surgery practice want to keep their tummy tuck to themselves. While you may be ecstatic to have a flatter stomach, you might not want others to know. Whether or not you want people to know about your tummy tuck is completely up to you. Luckily, keeping plastic surgery discreet is easier than you might think.
Make a Plan for After Your Surgery
Avoid awkward encounters by having a plan in place. Think ahead to what may require you to leave the house before you are ready. Clear your calendar, stock your fridge, arrange child care, and be sure to fill any post-operative medications before your tummy tuck surgery with Dr. Doyle.
Give Yourself Enough Time
It is important to schedule enough time off work or away from other obligations or activities. You will want to be able to rest and recuperate without the stress of having to be at work. Remember that there is no need to tell your boss or anyone else why you are asking for the time off or excusing yourself from other responsibilities. Allowing your body to heal ensures you can be at the top of your game as soon as you return.
Dr. Doyle recommends that you give yourself at least two weeks at home. This gives you an adequate amount of time to have your surgery, rest and recover, and be off of any pain medication before you return to your normal routine.
Gather a Small Support Team
You can only be so private about your tummy tuck. Confide in one or two trusted loved ones who would be willing to help you through your recovery. This is not something you can do alone. You will need a ride home following your tummy tuck and have someone stay with you the first night. Entrusting another with your secret ensures that you can fully focus on your recovery.
When you choose to have your tummy tuck can make a huge difference in how easy it is to keep it discreet. The fall months are a great time to undergo your tummy tuck surgery. As the weather turns, we tend to have less social obligations and don’t expose as much skin as we do during the warmer months. Heavier clothing and more of it make it far easier to conceal any post-surgical garments, drains, or swelling.
