Physical and Emotional Results of a Tummy Tuck

During the full tummy tuck surgery, Dr. Ditesheim addresses the fatty tissue and skin weakness in your torso—the area from your ribcage to your pubic area—to restore your stomach. The procedure can improve the shape of your torso, making your stomach flatter and waist more defined.

Getting Results for Women Who Have Given Birth

We have seen very positive outcomes with the full tummy tuck, especially among women who have given birth. Through this procedure, Dr. Ditesheim can hide scars and deformities caused by pregnancy.

It is important to keep in mind that a tummy tuck is an operation that a woman will do once in her lifetime. Before you decide to get this procedure, you should wait until you are in your best health and are done having children.

Emotional Benefits of the Procedure

The results of the tummy tuck procedure can help you fit into your clothes better and feel more comfortable in your skin. We strive to help you restore your confidence so that you feel beautiful, attractive, and feminine.

Recovery Timeline for a Full Abdominoplasty

When scheduling your tummy tuck procedure, you should plan for about two to three weeks of recovery time to ensure you get the best results. When you undergo a full abdominoplasty, you should be able to return to 80 percent of your everyday activities by the end of the second week of recovery.

If you are going back to a busy job, you may need to take three weeks. However, if you work from home, you might even be able to return to work at the end of one week.

How Long Do the Results of a Full Tummy Tuck Surgery Last?

The results from a tummy tuck procedure will last forever. Most women over 20 or 30 years may gain some weight. Depending on the amount of weight gained, that may slightly change the shape of their body. However, we have seen women 20 years after the operation whose scars have faded and who still have great figures.
