When it comes to losing weight and looking your best, diet and exercise are key. However, there are often times when eliminating those last few pounds or tightening up loose skin feels impossible. No matter how hard you try, that weight refuses to budge. We know how frustrating this can be. Fortunately, for excess tissue and skin laxity around the abdominal area, a tummy tuck can help. If you have been considering a tummy tuck, here are three facts that you should know:
One Procedure, Many Benefits
Although it is often assumed that a tummy tuck is used solely to address excess skin, the truth is that this procedure can also return your abdominal muscles to their original location, correct small hernias, increase the tone of your abdominal wall and improve your posture. As a result, this series of improvements not only enhances your body but also boosts your confidence.
Priced Within Your Budget
Many patients worry that this highly desired procedure will not be financially accessible. However, at DePerro Plastic Surgery, we are proud to accept a wide range of payment options, including financing through CareCredit®. This means that your tummy tuck could be more possible than you imagined. The price of your specific procedure will be calculated during your consultation, and we will be happy to discuss payment options with you, at that time.
Recovery Takes Time
In order to ensure the best possible outcome, it’s important to schedule plenty of time to rest during your recovery. Although the specifics of your recovery process will be discussed during your consultation, in general, you can expect to take several weeks before returning back to your normal activity level. Strenuous exercise and demanding physical activity will need to be avoided. Dr. DePerro will discuss how long you will need to take off work, to support yourself in this healing process.
