Tummy tucks are a very popular and effective way to contour the abdomen. As part of the surgery, your surgeon will typically perform a muscle repair where they bring the muscles that have been separated together. This muscle repair will take some time to heal. In our practice, we typically recommend that patients returned to the gym only after 6 to 8 weeks from their surgery. At that time they may begin aerobic exercise and using weights.
Patients can continue to improve the appearance of their tummy tucks by participating in a rigorous exercise regimen and continuing a low-fat and balanced diet.
If you have gained weight after a tummy tuck, meeting with a nutritionist or a personal trainer who can help you design a program that will meet your goals. As you continue to lose weight, you will feel better and your tummy tuck will only look better
