IS IT TIME FOR A TUMMY TUCK SURGERY IN WEST PALM BEACH?
A woman’s body can change over time and for many reasons. However, one of the biggest and most dramatic changes occurs during pregnancy when the stomach must grow significantly. For some women, the stomach will snap back into shape after the baby is born. Others, however, are left with a great deal of excess skin, lack of elasticity, or a stomach “pooch” that just won’t go away.
When a person is uncomfortable with how she looks, her self-confidence can take a significant hit, leading to problems in her personal, professional, and social life. Regardless of the reason why a person has sagging skin in the stomach, it’s important to know that it doesn’t have to impact your life forever. Dr. Ravinder Jarial of RSJ Plastic Surgery in West Palm Beach is an experienced surgeon who offers the tummy tuck procedure for women throughout West Palm Beach, South Florida. He understands that undergoing surgery is not a small decision.
Therefore, he offers these important considerations:
- Tummy tuck surgery is a safe and long-term solution to removing unwanted fat and sagging skin. It works by lifting sagging tissue and tightening abdominal muscles.
- Preparation for the surgery should begin a month or more in advance. Patients should be at their ideal weight and have no future plans for pregnancy as weight loss or gain can impact the results of the surgery.
- Following surgery, patients should expect some discomfort, swelling, and bruising. It’s important to remember that the procedure is a surgery and recovery will take some time. Within a few weeks, most patients are moving comfortably and the bruising has faded. Within two months, patients should see full results as the swelling will have completely subsided.
- Patients should continue to have good eating habits and a routine exercise program to ensure their stomachs stay at the ideal shape.
Dr. Jarial knows that not everyone can achieve the shape they want through diet and exercise alone. He also feels strongly that individuals should not feel uncomfortable about their appearance. Dr. Jarial has many years of experience helping patients achieve their ideal figure and appearance. For more information about tummy tuck surgery, call the RSJ Plastic Surgery office today.
