Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck Recovery

Expect to feel dizzy and disorientated immediately after the procedure; it is a side effect of the anesthesia. You will feel mild pain in the first week, but the prescribed painkillers will mitigate the pain. 

It would help if you surrounded yourself with a good support system (family and friends) to look after you.

Two weeks is the typical period you will need to feel normal; during this period, you will wear a compressing garment to enhance the final surgery results. You will need to take two weeks off work and expect to return to light exercise after 6 - 8 weeks.

Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck Complications

Some common side effects after FDL tummy tuck include:

  • Numbness, bruising, and swelling, especially around the scar line 
  • Infection
  • Hematoma
  • Delayed healing
  • Skin necrosis
  • Skin loss
  • Seroma formation and thickened scar.

How Does The Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck Procedure Work?

An incision is made just above the pubic region, and you will need to discuss the length of your scar at a consultation. A vertical line is drawn down the middle of the abdomen, and skin is excised. 

The skin is separated from the underlying tissue from the pubic region upwards. The extent of dissection will vary from patient to patient. 

The abdominal wall is tightened, and the tummy button is relocated. Excess fat and skin are removed. The incisions are closed with dissolvable stitches, and the skin is repositioned. It is unusual to require drains, and a compressive dressing is almost always needed.

What Is The Difference Between Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck vs. Regular Tummy Tuck?

There are two main differences between the classic tummy tuck procedure and fleur de lis tummy tuck:

  • Fleur de lis tummy tuck helps to remove excess skin from a wider area (upper and lower abdominal)
  • Fleur de lis tummy tuck has vertical and horizontal incisions that intersect. The purpose is to remove the skin from the upper stomach (below the breast) area, which a standard tummy tuck procedure can't reach.
