You take care of yourself. You do everything you are supposed to do. You don’t drink or smoke and you get plenty of sleep every night. You eat a healthy, balanced diet and embrace physical activity. No matter how hard you’ve tried to be diligent about your health, you still have a flabby stomach. Whether you have been pregnant, lost weight or just have stubborn fat around the midsection, it can be frustrating. When all your own efforts have failed, a tummy tuck could be the answer for you.
What to Expect from a Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck is an outpatient surgical procedure that can help you have a smooth, toned stomach. Any excess skin can be removed during this procedure. Fat may also be removed and the abdominal muscles tightened. The remaining skin can be pulled taut so that it will be tight. The belly button may also be raised. Ultimately, the details of the procedure depend on the unique situation.
When you are cleared to go home, you will need to take care of yourself and take it easy. Follow Dr. Zimmerman’s instructions when it comes to what you can do and can’t do, as well as how much time you need to take off from work to heal. Once you have fully healed, you will have the flat, toned stomach that you have always wanted.
Is a Tummy Tuck the Right Choice for Me?
This is not a weight loss solution. If you have to shed a considerable amount of extra pounds, you’ll need to take charge of your weight first. If you are pregnant or expect to be pregnant, it is wise to wait for a tummy tuck because you will go through serious changes every time that you are expecting. You should be in good health and not smoke. Once you have a tummy tuck, you will need to work diligently to maintain your results.
