In fact, the abdomen is very hard to shape and sculpt with regular exercise, especially if your flopping belly was caused by pregnancy or excessive weight loss. The enlarged stomach is in many cases almost impossible to reverse with the use of exercise, special creams and other treatments. In this area, even liposuction is not enough to achieve satisfactory results, due to the massive stretching of the skin, and loosening of the abdominal muscles.
What It Helps
The tummy tuck procedure, or abdominoplasty, removes the excess skin and tightens the muscles in the abdominal wall to achieve a tight and flat stomach. This means a more aesthetic, much healthier looking body-contour and, not to mention, a considerable improvement in self-confidence. Stretch marks, which are very common after childbirth and weight gain or weight loss, are considerably reduced by tummy tuck. The incision scar is usually hidden in the bikini-line, which is why this operation brings a perfectly satisfactory result in most cases. A flat stomach is one of the most highly desired features of many people, and tummy tuck surgery is the way to achieve it.

The operation takes about 2-3 hours, and is performed under full sedation. The whole operation is completely safe, and our doctors will ensure that you receive the treatment of the highest quality possible.
Recovery time is usually 1 to 2 weeks, with one or two nights spent at our clinic. It is highly advisable to follow all the instructions given by your doctor concerning the precautions that need to be taken. During these couple of weeks you will have to be careful not to put too much stress on the abdominal area, and may feel weak during standing up, and other activities that rely heavily on the abdomen. It is highly advised that you spend the recovery time resting and doing mild exercises, such as walking. After a carefully spent initial 2 weeks, you can safely go back to work, and confidently engage in your everyday activities.
Tummy tuck surgery is revered for its long-lasting effects, and highly apparent benefits. To achieve the best results possible, you should combine abdominoplasty with regular exercise to keep your stomach flat and firm for a long-long time. You will not have to worry about putting on your swimming costume, for the only apparent sign of abdominoplasty is the healthy looking, attractive body, which is what we all want to achieve.
