4 Facts About Tummy Tucks

If you’ve been struggling to get the flat, toned core you desire to no avail, a tummy tuck from John Park MD Plastic Surgery may be just the solution. A tummy tuck is a body contouring procedure that removes excess skin and fat in the tummy region while also tightening abdominal muscles. If you’re considering a tummy tuck to flatten your midsection, we encourage you to learn as much as you can about the procedure. Here are four important facts to keep in mind.

1. It’s Not A Weight Loss Tool – Although a tummy tuck can provide you with a sleek physique, it should not be used as a weight loss measure. You should successfully lose the weight before scheduling your tummy tuck. It’s not a treatment for massive weight loss but rather a tool to compliment your weight loss efforts. You should wait to have your procedure until you’re at a stable weight.

2. You Must Plan For A Recovery PeriodTummy tuck surgery is an invasive procedure that requires a recovery period. You’ll need to plan for downtime of at least a few weeks to give your body the proper amount of time to heal. Before your surgery, you should make arrangements to have someone drive you to and from your procedure and to help you out at home for the first few days. You’ll need to make sure you take it easy, so you do not tear incisions or hinder your recovery.

3. There’s More Than One Type Of Tummy Tuck – Not everyone that needs a tummy tuck is in need of significant skin and fat removal. Some patients only have a little loose skin in the lower abdomen. When this is the case, a mini-tummy tuck will suffice. A mini-tummy tuck focuses on the area below the belly button and doesn’t necessarily require liposuction. These patients do not need to have their abdominal muscles tightened, and their belly button is left untouched. Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. John Park will help you determine which tummy tuck procedure is right for you and your needs.

4. Tummy Tuck Achieve Long-Lasting Results – Tummy tuck results are meant to be long-lasting; however, it’s essential to live a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and exercise regimen to maintain results. Weight fluctuations and future pregnancies can alter your results.
