Tummy Tucks

“107, 108, 109, 110.” If you are doing hundreds of sit-ups everyday but still aren’t getting the abdominal results that you want, then it might be time to consider doing something a bit more outside of the box such as abdominoplasty or a tummy tuck.

Do to things such as age, having babies, or extreme weight loss, the area around your abdomen might become loose and saggy in appearance, leaving you with every excuse to never wear a bikini again. However, by having a tummy tuck, you can get a tighter and flatter stomach without having to spend countless more nights in front of the TV doing those pesky abdominal crunches.

What is a Tummy Tuck?

tummy tuckTummy tucks or abdominoplasty, is the surgical process in which excess fat and skin will be removed around your abdominal area, leaving you with a more taut and younger looking belly. During the 5-6 hour long procedure you will be under anesthesia and will likely be required to spend the night at the hospital in order to properly recover and be monitored after the surgery.

What is Recovery Time Like?
After surgery, you can expect to have some pain and swelling around the surgical site but that should subside with a few days to a week. Once you are out of surgery and are starting to recover, your doctor will place a thick bandage around your middle in order to make sure that you properly heal without straining any muscles. Your doctor will instruct you on how often to change the bandage and how to properly wrap it around your abdomen. Your overall recovery time will depend on how your surgery went but you can expect to be out of work for a couple of weeks while your body fully heals and gets back to feeling like normal.

When Will I See Results?
Some people claim to see results right away but due to the large amount of swelling that will be present, you likely won’t be able to fully see and enjoy your results for a couple of weeks. Don’t be discouraged by having to wear a bandage for a few weeks and know that you will soon be able to show off your flat stomach.
