Good Candidates for a Tummy Tuck
Patients who need a reliable and proven method of getting rid of excess skin on their tummies would be good candidates for a tummy tuck. Patients should ideally be in good health prior to this procedure. It would also be recommended to quit habits like smoking to help facilitate a shorter recovery.
Scheduling a consultation is important for patients who are interested in a tummy tuck, since it will allow them to get the results that they want. The visit will involve questions about the patient’s medical records and if they are currently on any medications. Patients can also take this chance to ask their own questions and bring up concerns.
Tummy Tuck Aftercare
Some minor discomfort and soreness can be expected during the recovery period following a tummy tuck. Patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities of any kind as they are healing. A post-surgical garment must be worn, and patients must take time off from work.
