How long does it take to get over this major operation and what are the contraindications? I am 63 yrs old.

It is a very individual process. I performed an abdominoplasty and breast reduction on a 68 year lady last week, no drains, went home the day after and who is back to almost normal activity 10 days later and able to drive with normal posture. I have other patients that have struggle to gain normal posture by 2 weeks who are much younger. At the end of the day it depends on how fit and well you are to start, what is being done and how you recover from operations. For patients who are anxious it is best to talk to previous patients and maybe you should ask your surgeon to put you in touch with previous patients so that you can get more of an idea first hand.

It will not be prudent. An abdominoplasty is a major operation involving a long scar - you would not want to take any chance of an infection spreading from another part of your body.
