Who would be an ideal candidate?
An ideal candidate for a tummy tuck procedure would be:
- Someone who is physically healthy and at a stable weight
- If you are bothered by your appearance of your abdomen
- You have stubborn belly fat or loose skin that has not responded to diet and exercise
- Healthy women who do not plan to have more children and may have stretch marks and loose skin in the abdominal area they want to get rid of.
What is the recovery time?
Recovery time is different for each patient, the patient should schedule at least two full weeks of downtime during surgery. The patient should avoid lifting and intense physical activity during that time. Normal physical activity can begin typically between 4-6 weeks after the procedure as long as they are cleared to do so by their doctor.
When will I be able to see the results?
You will start to see the results after the swelling subsides and the drains are taken out. Give your body time to heal and you will reap the many benefits of this procedure.
How long will the results last?
Results will vary from person to person. Over time, the muscles will begin to relax, but not to the extent prior to surgery. * Individual results may vary
