If you have been exercising in order to get rid of excess fat, you’ve likely seen an improvement. Unfortunately, though, weight loss will not remove sagging skin or stretch marks. The best way to do so is through surgery.
What Are My Surgical Options?
A tummy tuck can be used to tighten the abdominal muscles and remove stretched skin around the stomach. Sagging skin is removed and most stretch marks that appear below the navel are removed as well. This is the easiest, fastest, and most effective approach for removing stretch marks and sagging skin.
Are There Non-Surgical Options?
If you’re like many people, you’ve already tried many of the “miracle” creams the beauty industry has marketed. While there are some non-surgical options for getting rid of these issues, they are not as effective as surgery. In addition, options like creams and even lasers will only minimize the appearance of stretch marks, rather than getting rid of them completely, as surgery can do.
How Long Does It Take to Recover?
An abdominoplasty is a major surgery, so it is important to remember that some down time will be required while you are healing and before you will see the finished results. Recovery time depends on the individual. Most people need two to three weeks off of work until they feel like they can return to light duty. Gym workouts must wait until about 4-6 weeks post-op (your surgeon will advise you).
Your plastic surgeon can give you a better idea of how long recovery will take during your pre-op consultation. This way you can plan for the recovery and ask for time off from work. With this procedure, most people absolutely love their new body shape.
