You should be able to get back to 80% of your daily activities within one week. I encourage my patients to ambulate and resume light activities within a few days after abdominoplasty.

You are encouraged to lean over when you are walking. We recommend that you do not do any heavy exercise or weight lift for four to six weeks.
