The results of a tummy tuck can last for years, but in order to ensure that your abdomen remains impressively firm you need to do your part to hold onto the benefits of the procedure.
A healthy diet, exercise, and regular skin care will help keep the abdominal area looking firm and toned for the long term. That said, it’s important to keep in mind that a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is not intended as a weight-loss procedure.
During your tummy tuck consultation, Naples, Florida, plastic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña will discuss recommendations for post-surgery care so you can maintain the results of your tummy tuck.
To ensure your tummy tuck success into the future, you should follow at least the same dietary and fitness standards that make you a good candidate for the procedure in the first place. It helps to be physically healthy, live an active lifestyle, be a nonsmoker, and have an emotionally healthy positive outlook with realistic expectations regarding your procedure.
Sticking to a healthy diet and exercise routine will help you remain in your ideal weight range and maintain the results of your tummy tuck for years to come.
