A tummy tuck is a worthwhile investment in your appearance and self-confidence. It offers long-lasting results that you can enjoy for many years to come. If you are interested in this procedure, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Miller has some tips for getting an amazing outcome that stands the test of time:
- Wait until you are done having kids: Pregnancy can cause sagging skin, excess fat, and abdominal muscle separation. These are the very same cosmetic concerns that may have led you to get a tummy tuck in the first place. While you certainly can have kids after surgery, you risk losing your results. You may need a revision procedure to help get your figure back.
- Follow our post-operative instructions: We will send you home from your tummy tuck with specific instructions for taking care of your body. Following these instructions is one of the best things that you can do to set yourself up for success. Simple things like wearing your compression garment can go a long way towards achieving a slimmer and smoother result.
- Eat well and exercise: A healthy lifestyle is key to getting the most from your tummy tuck. Before surgery, it will help you reach your goal weight and get your body in optimal health. After surgery, it will support a speedy recovery and long-lasting results.
- Maintain a stable weight: Any dramatic weight fluctuations following your procedure are going to affect your results. If you want to lose weight, do so before you have surgery. Then, plan to keep the weight off after your tummy tuck to maintain your flat and toned waistline.
