Tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) removes excess skin and fat from your abdomen and tightens loose abdominal muscles. This procedure is ideal for patients recovering from weight loss or pregnancy who want their original appearance restored.
Recovery after tummy tuck surgery can take between two and six weeks depending on the extent of the procedure. Final results can take three to six months to fully develop.
Tummy Tuck Revision
Tummy tuck revision can correct concerns that arise following an initial tummy tuck. These concerns may include muscles that do not remain tightened, the development of further excess skin, or, most commonly, bulges at the sides of the original scar.
If you are not satisfied with your initial tummy tuck results, revision surgery may be right for you. Abdominoplasty revision can also address recurrent abdominal laxity caused by aging, additional weight loss, or a subsequent pregnancy.
Recovery after tummy tuck revision is usually comparable to the original tummy tuck. This means recovery will range between two and six weeks. Final results may take three to six months to develop.
