3-6 weeks: I typically recommend that patients take off 1-2 weeks from work depending upon their line of work. They then ease into activities during weeks 3-4 and work up to full activities by week 6. These are general guidelines. As every person is different, i recommend seeing a board certified plastic surgeon who can assess you as an individual and determine what your recovery will likely be.

No: Total cholesterol is made up of "good" cholesterol (hdl), "bad" cholesterol (ldl) and triglycerides.You want high hdl, and low LDL & triglycerides. High cholesterol is caused by genetic factors (your body makes too much cholesterol), dietary intake, and lack of exercise. Exercise has been shown to increase HDL and lower ldl. Salt intake does not impact cholesterol levels.

Yes: You need to give your body time to heal after a tummy tuck prior to traveling. During your consultation with your board certified plastic surgeon you should ask her/him what your travel restrictions will be after surgery.
