After having four children, i was really wanting a tummy tuck. Although i went in to see Dr Pousti for a breast reaugmentation, i decided to bite the bullet and have the tummy tuck done at the same time. Recovery from a tummy tuck was far more difficult than i had expected. i was hunched over for a good 5 weeks. my skin was tight. slowly i healed. you know what is amazing is that after my tummy tuck, i saw revealed a slim, muscled tummy! all my muscles that had been pulled apart from pregnancies were back in their place and i was well on my way to a six pack. although i was active before the surgery, i could not see tummy results under the loose skin. now i can see muscled definition. it is amazing! Far better than i had imagined it could have been! If you are considering a tummy tuck, please know that to get those wonderful results, the recovery time will take a couple mos. If you work at a desk, you may have an easier time returning, but don't expect it to be two weeks and all is fine. Give yourself time. Be patient. You won't be disappointed.
