Yes but wait: Wait til after you're recovered. I've had patients who tried to do crunches too soon after a tummy tuck and felt a "pullling" sensation where the muscles were brought back together. Wait at least 6 weeks before exercise like this!

Yes: You'll probably be stooped over for the first week or so after surgery, and heels are probably not a good idea then. No reason why after you fully recover you can't wear heels.

Depends on you: Some patients are back to work as quickly as two weeks. More commonly 3-4 wks.
