What is a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck is a plastic surgery procedure that involves surgically removing excess skin and fat, as well as tightening the abdominal muscles. While liposuction can remove some of the fat in this region, it cannot do anything about loose or sagging skin. A tummy tuck is best for individuals who want to improve their body contour, but have excess skin that can’t be addressed with diet and exercise.

What Benefits Can I Expect From a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy tucks are especially beneficial for those who have recently had weight loss surgery or given birth. This plastic surgery procedure will help you to achieve a firmer and flatter abdomen, as well as contour your core area and waistline. A tummy tuck can also help to improve posture and increase confidence in one’s appearance.

What is the Recovery Time for a Tummy Tuck?

The recovery time from your tummy tuck will depend on the extent of the treatment, but most people can return to their normal activities within two weeks. It’s important to follow your plastic surgeon’s post-op instructions carefully in order to ensure a safe and effective recovery.
