The tummy tuck is a cosmetic medical procedure, which is done surgically for tightening up the abdominal muscles in order to slim down the waistline particularly of women. Tummy tucks take a reasonable time to recover and obviously takes a time frame, which does not allow the patient to lift or carry any heavy goods.
After the first few days of surgery the time is roughest, and the patient usually experiences the discomfort of the area where surgery has been done and swelling during the body is rearranged. Tummy tucking is a medical procedure that requires very cautious movement in recovery process. Ample understanding of the restrictions imposed for recovery is very much required prior to going through with this particular cosmetic procedure.
Tummy tucks are a well-known method of re-shaping a figure. Most often it is done to a pre-child bearing condition. The major tummy tuck patients are women whose abdomens lost their elasticity after childbirth. It is very common that muscles cannot regain their original structure and dieting and exercise may help but won't work. The tummy tuck may leave scars. Most cosmetic procedures leave minimal marks and tummy tuck can take nine to twelve months to reduce marks to show off the new waistline. Differences are clearly shown before and after tummy tuck.
