How should I prepare my home before my tummy tuck?

ANSWER

You'll need:

  • Ice packs
  • Loose, comfortable clothing that can be put on and off very easily
  • Petroleum jelly
  • Hand-held shower head and bathroom chair

You'll also need someone to drive you home after the tummy tuck. If you live alone, you'll want someone to stay with you for at least the first night.
