Maintain your tummy tuck results with a healthy diet and exercise

After a tummy tuck, it's very important to follow a healthy diet and exercise routinely to maintain your great results. Now, you don't have to go on any crash diets or become a workout-aholic, but just get into a good routine for your exercise (2-3 times/week for 30 minutes at a time) and follow a health diet (count those calories!) Unfortunately, there isn't any plastic surgery procedure to prevent you from gaining weight. Your Baltimore plastic surgery specialist will perform a tummy tuck to tighten your abdomen and remove any excess skin. These good results will last as long as you want. Eating an unhealthy diet and not exercising will allow your abdomen to stretch out again and you may get more excess skin of the abdomen as well. So, if you're going through the time, effort, and expense of seeing a Baltimore tummy tuck expert for this procedure or any other cosmetic surgery for that matter, "protect your investment" by eating healthy and exercising!
