Unfortunately for most, diet and exercise alone may not give you the flat, well-toned abdomen you are looking for. If you are unhappy with your stomach after a recent weight fluctuation or pregnancy, a tummy tuck may be a great option for you. An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, will help remove excess fat, skin, and stretch marks from around the abdominal area. Dr. Harvey may also repair a diastasis, or separation of abdominal muscles, which is common after pregnancy or weight gain. This separation causes the small “pooch” of the lower abdominal area. Dr. Harvey will repair your diastasis and tighten the skin to help give your abdomen a firm and toned appearance.
Most patients are out of work for 1-2 weeks and are placed on lifting and exercise restrictions for 6 weeks. After surgery, a simple drain is inserted and you are placed in an abdominal binder for 5-7 days. Once the drain is removed, you will wear a compression garment for 5-6 weeks.
