Medina's Tip of the day!
I can have discomfort while eating after a tummy tuck?
Many patients think that undergo this procedure, it will affect your eating habits or your lifestyle in general, but it is not going to make discomfort on your stomach while you're eating. This procedure is not directed performed to the stomach as such, it does not have to affect appetite or the patient's daily activities. It is true that soon after surgery, the patient may have pain in the abdominal area, due to muscle repair and the whole inflammatory process but that after a few weeks can get ceased.
Tummy tuck is all I need to have a flat stomach?
Some people have what we call visceral fat bone around the intestines and stomach, making your stomach look like a balloon. This fat cannot be removed with liposuction or tummy tuck, only with weight loss, so in some cases only with the tummy tuck is not enough for a flat stomach.
Eat HEALTHY food and vegetables, that will help you A LOT!
Love, Dr. Medina
