Getting back on your feet after abdominoplasty
Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is one of the larger surgeries your cosmetic plastic surgeon can perform (remember to always choose a board-certified plastic surgeon—and no one else!). I often perform this cosmetic surgery at the same time as breast surgery for a “mommy makeover”!
With tummy tucks, the tightening of the abdomen muscles, removal of excess skin below the belly button and liposuction of the flanks takes a certain toll on the body. I encourage my patients to be up and about the same night. This is why I perform the surgery as an outpatient procedure and have the patients go home the same day.
When they come back into the office a day or two later, they look like this… check out the video by following this link: 12 hours after tummy tuck and breast surgery
