What You Should Know Before a Tummy Tuck, Manhattan, New York

If you have excess fat or skin on your abdomen that you can’t get rid of through diet or exercise, you may have considered a tummy tuck. This cosmetic procedure can flatten and tighten the stomach, giving you a slimmer appearance. However, before you book the procedure, it’s important to educate yourself about it. Below are several facts you should know about tummy tucks.

3 Points to Consider About Tummy Tucks

1. You Will Need Assistance During Your Recovery

tummy tuckAfter your tummy tuck procedure, you will likely need a close friend or family member to help you around the house for at least a few days. You will be fatigued and unable to do everyday tasks, like cooking, cleaning, and positioning yourself in bed. Additionally, you should avoid lifting objects over 10 pounds and doing strenuous activities for at least four to six weeks.

2. A Tummy Tuck Won’t Help You Lose Weight

A common misconception about tummy tucks is that they will help you drop the pounds. However, a tummy tuck isn’t a weight loss procedure. It tightens the skin and muscles underneath the abdomen. Patients should be at their ideal weight before getting this procedure.

3. The Results Aren’t Immediate 

While it would be wonderful to have a perfect-looking stomach right after your surgery, it doesn’t work that way. It’s normal to experience swelling, bruising, and redness for several weeks after your procedure. However, this is only temporary, and you should achieve your desired results after a few months.

4. It’s Up to You to Maintain the Results

The results of a tummy tuck won’t maintain themselves. If you consume an unhealthy diet and skip a lot of workouts, you can gain fat in your stomach again. To maintain a flat and tight stomach, fill your diet with whole foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean meats, and limit greasy and fatty foods. Also, establish an exercise routine that works for you.
