Tummy Tuck, also known as Abdominoplasty, is a major surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen, with subsequent tightening of the abdominal wall muscles, resulting in a flatter looking abdomen. The best candidates for Tummy Tuck are men or women who are in relatively good shape but are bothered by a large fat deposit or loose abdominal skin with protruding abdominal muscle that won’t respond to diet or exercise.
Full recovery depends on the physical condition you are in. Some people return to work after 2 weeks, while others need 3 – 4 weeks to rest and recuperate. Exercising and movement will help you heal better although vigorous exercise should be avoided until you can do it comfortably.
