The abdominoplasty, or in layman’s terms the tummy tuck, is a cosmetic surgery that reconstructs loose and sagging skin in the abdominal area. For many people who have excess skin and fat in the stomach area due to extreme weight loss and a pregnancy, the tummy tuck is an excellent solution.
The recovery process is one the most important parts of ensuring that your procedure is a success. A board-certified, experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Lisa Taylor will instruct you on the proper steps specific to your procedure. However, in the days following your procedure, you should keep in mind to limit heavy activity, avoid all forms of nicotine, be patient and take care to wear your directed compression garments for support.
