  • Recovery Period: If you want to go for a tummy tuck post-pregnancy, you should be aware of the recovery period. It will take you about 10 to 14 days after the procedure so that you can get back to your regular activities.
  • Firms and Smoothens the Abdomen:  The “tummy tuck” procedure is also known as “Abdominoplasty”. The purpose of this treatment procedure is to smoothen and firm up a woman’s abdomen. Excessive abdominal skin is removed through this procedure that can reduce the fat that has accumulated in the abdominal region during pregnancy. The procedure also tightens the abdominal wall’s muscles. The muscles that have weakened and separated during the period of pregnancy can be tightened by a tummy tuck and can also improve the appearance of your stretch marks that had become a part of you after your pregnancy.
  • Effective for Several Years: Unless the patient is again expecting a child or there is massive weight gain, the abdomen of a woman who has undergone this treatment procedure will remain flat and firm for several years.
  • Surgical Procedure:  An incision is made by a surgeon near the patient’s pubic area. The procedure of tummy tuck can also involve use of sutures to tighten the abdominal muscles.
