You will be admitted on the day of surgery and will be discharged from hospital once you are clinically stable and physically fit enough to look after yourself. You will need someone to drive you back home and take care of you for at least 24 hours. For most operations that take two hours and more, you will need to stay in hospital for a day or two. Sometimes, people undergoing a tummy tuck surgery or facelift surgery will need to stay longer.

This is because drains are placed into the tissues after these operations. Once the drains are quite and not active anymore, they can be removed, and you can be discharged home. Sometimes we let people go home with their drains in place and daily dressing appointments are arranged until the drains are out if there is persistent drainage.
