What is the recovery time for a tummy tuck with liposuction?

Hello, I would like to have a tummy tuck with lipo to my flanks and back, as well as inner thighs. I was told 2 weeks recovery. This seems fast to me. Is this the norm?

The first 1-2 weeks are the most challenging. No heavy lifting or working out for 4-6 weeks. Your results will be most appreciated by 3-6 months and will improve up to one year post surgery.

That is a good approximation. You will need longer than that to feel like yourself energy wise but most women are able to do normal activities after about 2 weeks.
