When Can I Return To Work After Abdominoplasty?

Maryland Plastic Surgeon serving Washington DC, & Virginia including Alexandria and Fairfax.


We understand that you're a busy person. You value your job and you don't want to miss any more work time after an abdominoplasty than you absolutely have to.  But we always remind our Maryland patients of the importance of taking time for recovery.

Every abdominoplasty is unique, as is every patient. However, the general rule is that you can expect to return to work about two weeks after your procedure.

Your precise return date will be determined by a number of factors, including your body's natural healing ability and the extent of the procedure. Our board-certified plastic surgeon will provide you with a more detailed timeline before your procedure.

The nature of your job will play a role as well. If your job requires vigorous physical activity that puts a significant strain on your body, you should delay your return.

It's important that you closely follow this timeline and all of Dr. Chiaramonte's instructions. Recovery is not something to take lightly- you need to give yourself time to fully heal after your procedure.

You're never alone when you're a patient at Bella Cosmetic Surgery. Even after your procedure you will have the full support and assistance of our doctor and staff.

If you live in or around Maryland and you have questions about the abdominoplasty procedure, please call Bella Cosmetic Surgery at 301-567-6767 or contact us online for a consultation.
