Longevity of tummy tuck,
Dear tummy tuck candidate,
It is not a simple answer. It all depends on your life style and the quality of your surgeons work. Tummy tuck should last for many years even many decades. However, if you are sun worshiper , than skin elasticity will not last that long,. If you gain and lose significant amount of weight , the muscles and skin will relax and become redundent much faster. If you become pregnant and carrie the baby to term, the muscles and skin will strech more or less. If you do not follow your surgeons recommendation to avoid excercise and heavy lifting for at least 6 weeks, you might loosen up the muscles. Finally, if your surgeon is not tightening the muscles and skin adequetely or does not use permanent sutures for the muscles tightening , the result will not last that long. In summery, look for an experienced board certified plastic surgeon, live a healthy life style and use common sense.
Best of luck,
Tummy Tuck results and Longevity
Although the improvement one sees with a tummy tuck will last for decades, I counsel my patients that their results will continue to age as they, themselves, do. It still pays to exercise and watch one's weight after the procedure. I would suggest having the tummy tuck after you have completed your family as a subsequent pregnancy can compromise the results. The majority of patients have one tummy tuck in their lifetimes. However, about 5% may consider a further tummy tuck revision in 10 or more year.
Longevity of Tummy Tuck Results
Provided one does not get pregnant again and keeps a reasnable weight, the results of a tummy tuck can last for the rest of your life. There may be some mild loose skin that may develop as you age but it will never be as significant as what was originally removed. You biggest concern about long-term preservation of your tummy tuck is to keep your weight stable otherwise you will thicken up your abdominal and waistline areas.
