Tummy tuck results can last indefinitely for people who maintain a fairly stable weight. The removed fat will not return, although remaining fat cells can change in size.
Even with normal post-surgical swelling, you can immediately see how much loose skin and fat have been removed from the abdominal area. Seeing your results right away will help you feel confident in your choice and reassure you of the benefits you can enjoy.
Confidence and Freedom
You will feel freer to wear anything you want and not feel self-conscious about your abdomen. Your scar from the tummy tuck sits so low on the abdomen that even a bikini will completely cover it. Without the visible sagging belly, you will find that clothes fit better and you look better.
What is Recovery Like From a Tummy Tuck?
After surgery, people with physically active jobs will need about a month of recovery time before returning to work. People with low-activity jobs may return sooner with Dr. Stile’s approval. Strenuous activity needs to wait at least six weeks, and then only if you feel comfortable.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?
If you have loose abdominal skin and stubborn fat, you may be a good candidate. Ideal candidates are in good health, do not smoke, and have no history of blood clots or bleeding problems.
