Exercise Regimen After Your Tummy Tuck Procedure
Living an active and healthy life is my advise to all of my patients once they have recovered from their procedures. Switch up your exercise regimen but make sure it always incorporates strength training, cardio/aerobics, and stretching; such as yoga. If you like doing outdoor activities, you can substitute some of your workouts with things such as hiking, walking, etc.
As far as your diet goes, everyone is different, but make sure you are eating nutritious foods, and if you need further advice you can seek the help of a nutritionist. Best of luck to you.

Diet and exercise after Tummy tuck surgery
It is great that you are asking this question because maintenance after surgery is so important. I usually don't recommend a specific diet or exercise regimen for patients but encourage them to eat healthy and do the activities they like to keep fit (some patients love bike riding, others yoga, other like doing zumba!).
As long as you are watching your diet and moving... you should be fine!
