Weight loss is an achievement, motherhood provides great joy. But both come at a price. A Tummy Tuck reduces abdominal fat, excess skin and, if need be, tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall following pregnancies or significant weight loss The procedure is designed to give you a more toned and a flatter abdomen. Abdominoplasty is often combined with lipoplasty for better results.
Abdominoplasty requires a hospital stay of one or two for your safety and comfort. On the day of surgery you will be encouraged to walk for short periods to promote blood circulation. You will be instructed to wear a support garment following the procedure and you will need to avoid strenuous activity for several weeks. The extent of the procedure required to obtain the desired result will determine when you can return to work, and your surgeon will be able to guide you on that.
Following abdominoplasty you can expect to have a firmer, flatter abdomen and a `younger´ looking belly button. Resulting scars are permanent but will fade over time; your plastic surgeon will aim to place them within the lines of a bathing suit or of your preferred undergarments.
