31 Jul 2017 Everything to Know About Having a Tummy Tuck
Once patients become concerned that their tummy is feeling flabby, the first thing that comes to mind is a tummy tuck. Why not, right? A tummy tuck is a procedure that can remove excess fat and skin, and if this has been a concern for a very long time, you should consider this treatment.
However, some people believe that a tummy tuck (also known as an abdominoplasty) is an easy solution to a fat stomach. Yes, we can remove the fat, but to maintain it requires exercise and a healthy diet. This kind of thinking is what drives people to prematurely decide that they want to have surgery.
If you are considering having this procedure, here are a few things you need to know to make a sound decision.
Think About Your Objectives with A Tummy Tuck Surgery
Ask yourself why you want to get a tummy tuck. If it is simply for losing weight, then you might be coming in with the wrong objective in mind. Note that the ideal patients for a tummy tuck are people who have already reached their ideal weight. A tummy tuck will just help them tone their shape. You can use the goal of getting a tummy tuck to motivate you to lose weight if you are not at your ideal body size yet.
Plan for Time Off After Abdominoplasty
If you are considering a tummy tuck, you should enlist the help of your friends and family because you may need some help after the surgery. Time off does not just include work; it may mean getting help doing things around the house as well. The minimum duration of downtime is two weeks.
