Tummy tuck procedures are the most famous cosmetic surgery in the medical industry. Overweight people from every corner of the world would like to undergo tummy tuck procedures in their country or in a foreigner one which is a health tourism destination. Tummy tuck procedures of today are quite simple and comfortable. They are also safe and patients are guaranteed to return to work within 2-3 days. However, there are still things to do during tummy tuck recovery. For example, every patient should know how to sleep after tummy tuck because the most tummy tuck failure and complication cases are generally associated with poor post-surgery care.
One should be very careful during his / her sleep after a tummy tuck procedure. The most annoying part is always sleeping position when it comes to getting an invasive medical procedure like a tummy tuck. So, you should find yourself a good one which will not interrupt your surgical wounds during the early days of recovery.
Most tummy tuck patients can sleep on their back. It is actually the best sleeping position according to most experts. You should break your legs on your knees and put something like a pillow under your legs. This will provide better blood flow on your body. Your muscle and skeletal system will also enjoy the most comfortable position during your sleep.
However, you do not have to sleep in this position if your scabs start falling. If you see that your scabs start falling, this means that your wounds are healing and there is no need to concern about your wounds during your sleep anymore.
It is also good to block your turning sides with pillows because you should prevent your body from changing your sleep position for a couple of days. Once your body can’t change its side, this will force it to stay where it is.
