An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, can give you the fit, tight tummy you’ve been hoping for! If you want to get your stomach in great shape without spending countless hours at the gym, this could be just the procedure for you!

The abdominoplasty procedure involves surgical contouring of the body’s tissues; because of this, a period of recovery will be needed. For up to two weeks, patients will need to stay home from their jobs and recuperate.

Once this time has passed and the patient’s tissues have healed, they may be ready to go back to work. It’s important to note, however, that strenuous work activities should still be avoided for several more weeks in order to maintain proper healing.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Vaishali Doolabh will be available to tell you more about the abdominoplasty recovery process – contact our office and arrange an appointment for a consultation.
