Abdominoplasty, or the tummy tuck, is one of the most popular plastic surgeries — especially among women who have had children and people who have lost a lot of weight. A tummy tuck can help you achieve certain appearance goals when diet and exercise can’t help (along with a few added benefits). Here are 3 ways to get the most out of your tummy tuck surgery.
Your tummy tuck results will be better if you’ve been working out and have maintained a healthy weight for a while. Your ongoing results will be better if you keep those good habits up after surgery. If you gain weight after your tummy tuck, you may find yourself in the market for revisions before long.
2. Eat Right
Eating a healthy diet goes hand-in-hand with working out regularly. Do your part to stay at your ideal weight and your results will last longer. Plus, you’ll feel better and have more energy.
3. Be a Team Player
Work with your plastic surgeon to determine the procedure that will work best for your body. Don’t assume that a tummy tuck (or any other surgery) is the perfect fit for you just because it turned out great on someone else.
The state of your skin and muscles will largely determine which contouring procedure your surgeon will recommend.
