When Is It Time to Think About a Tummy Tuck?

Published on August 22, 2018

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a procedure that leaves your tummy looking toned and trim. This surgical procedure removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and also tightens the abdominal muscles.

When you’ve done all you can but those love handles just won’t go away, you might need a tummy tuck. There are a few things you should be aware of before you decide to take the plunge.

Who Is Eligible for a Tummy Tuck?

If you are considering getting an abdominoplasty, you will first need to consult with Dr. Ceydeli. He will be the person who is most qualified to tell you if you are eligible for the procedure and can advise you on all your options.

If you are a woman who has had multiple pregnancies and have a lot of loose flab around your middle, you can consider a tummy tuck. Pregnancy can create excess hanging skin, excess stubborn fat, sagging abdominal muscle tissue, and stretch marks, all of which can be addressed using this procedure.

Keep in mind that it must have been at least six months since your last pregnancy.

Both men and women who have lost a lot of weight and have a lot of excess skin around their stomachs can talk to Dr. Ceydeli about getting a tummy tuck. You need to be in good health and must tell Dr. Ceydeli about any medical conditions or allergies you might suffer from.

Men and women who lead a healthy lifestyle with the right diet and exercise but who can’t get rid of the extra tummy fat and skin are good candidates for a tummy tuck. You should be at or near your ideal weight and must have maintained a stable weight for at least six months to a year. The abdominoplasty is not a weight-loss procedure, so you need to lose the weight before the surgery.

The Healing Process

An abdominoplasty requires two weeks of recovery time. If you are thinking about getting the procedure done, you need to plan accordingly. You will need to schedule time off work, so make sure to plan your surgery around when this will be possible.

When you are thinking about getting a tummy tuck, you need to make sure that you will have someone to assist you for the first couple days. After the procedure, you will be on painkillers for a few days and may be feeling weak. You will need someone to help you get out of bed, prepare your meals, and make sure you take your medication on time. Plan your surgery only when you are sure that you will have a caregiver to stay with you for a few days.

When you make sure to follow Dr. Ceydeli’s instructions and plan your healing process correctly, a tummy tuck can be a great way to get that flat toned tummy you always desired.
