How important is staying fit after a tummy tuck?
If you have recently had abdominoplasty surgery and want to maintain your firm, well-contoured abdomen, West County Plastic Surgeons recommends above all staying fit after a tummy tuck. Doing so can prevent weight gain that could adversely affect surgical results. Beyond maintaining an attractive physique, regular exercise has numerous health benefits that will help you feel as good as you look.
At West County Plastic Surgeons, board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Terry Myckatyn and Dr. Marissa Tenenbaum specialize in abdominoplasty, and they want to help all of their patients maintain their results following surgery. They understand that abdominal surgery is an investment in yourself, so they want to help you earn the greatest possible return. During your consultation, they will explain the benefits of starting an aerobic and strength-training regimen prior to surgery because doing so will help you recover more quickly. They will also emphasize the importance of staying fit after a tummy tuck and give you specific post-surgery exercise guidelines and recommendations.
