Answer Hi, I had a tummy tuck about two years ago and it was day surgery, so I was released about 2 hours after the surgery. I had consulted with many surgeons about length of stay and it was pretty much borderline (a recovery period for about 2 to 4 HOURS) and then released. I do know that if your surgery is performed at a hospital they may require/allow you to stay for 2 TO 4 days. I am a plastic surgeon in Utah (Dr. York Yates). With improved technique and technology, this is almost always an oupatient procedure today. My patients stay as long as they need/ feel like it but usually this is just 15-45 minutes. I generally do not use general anesthesia even for a full abdominoplasty which helps.
