BMI Candidate Requirements
Asked by Tajanay | 2020-01-22 | Tummy Tuck
Do you have a BMI requirement?
Do we have a BMI requirement for Tummy Tuck!
Answered by Dr. Nandi Wijay

Great Question! 

A lot of patients have this question when they come in for a consultation.
First, BMI is a great tool doctors can use to help determine a patient’s general body type.  However, BMI does not completely determine if a patient is healthy enough to undergo surgery and anesthesia.  
When a patient comes in for a consultation, we will take a detailed history and physical to determine if they are a good candidate for surgery. 
So, we do not have a strict BMI cutoff, but as your BMI goes above 30 we take extra precautions and more pre-operative testing before we preforming surgery!

How long does it take to recover from a tummy tuck?
Asked by FAQ | 2020-01-22 | Tummy Tuck
A very common question from our patients! How long does it take to recover from a tummy tuck?
How long does it take to recover from a tummy tuck?
Answered by Dr. Nandi Wijay

Very common and important question!

Two very important things to know first is that every patient is different and that there are different types of Tummy Tucks.  Most patients can expect about 2 weeks of no heavy lifting after surgery. During those two weeks patients will be bent over and will slowly straighten up over a 2 weeks span.  Also, most of our patients who receive a Tummy Tucks in Houston will also have a muscle repair at the same time.  Patients who need a larger repair will have a slightly longer recovery.  At The Oaks Plastic Surgery we can use a special medication called Exparel that can help pain control for the first 3 days after surgery. After 2 weeks our patient start resuming their normal daily activity.  At the 6 weeks mark most patients will have a full release to exercise.
