FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure aimed at removing excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall. Ideal candidates are those in good physical health, at a stable weight, who have realistic expectations, and are troubled by a protruding abdomen that does not improve with diet and exercise.

Recovery from an abdominoplasty varies by individual but generally includes a period of rest and limited activity to ensure proper healing. Most patients can expect to take two to four weeks off from work, avoid strenuous activities for six weeks, and wear a supportive abdominal garment. Pain, swelling, and bruising are common, but these symptoms gradually improve over the first few weeks.

The results of an abdominoplasty can be long-lasting, provided you maintain a stable weight and follow a healthy lifestyle. Changes in weight, aging, and pregnancy can affect the surgery's outcome, so it's recommended to undergo the procedure once you've finished having children and are at a stable weight.
