How Will I Be Cared For
On The Day Of My Surgery?
Your abdominoplasty surgery may be performed in a
hospital or an outpatient surgery center.  Generally, most
patients are able to go home on the same day.  If you are
admitted to the hospital, your stay will be a short one,
perhaps over night.

Medications are administered to keep you comfortable
during the procedure and a general anesthetic is
administered so that you will sleep throughout the entire

When surgery is complete, you will be taken to a recovery
area.  In most cases, small drainage tubes will have been
placed beneath the abdominal skin to help prevent fluids
from accumulating.  Gauze dressings will be placed on
your incisions and covered with an abdominal binder.

On the day of surgery, someone should drop you off at the
surgical facility and also pick you up after the procedure, if
the plan is for you to go home.  You will be encouraged to
get out of bed for short periods of time.  Most of the
discomfort you feel will be controlled by medications
prescribed for you.
