Your 6-month guide to planning a tummy tuck
An abdominoplasty, better known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that requires careful planning and meticulous follow-up care for the best results. Knowing the steps to take before your abdominoplasty will ensure a better recovery process. Ideally, you’ll have several months in advance to prepare for your tummy tuck surgery. I recommend most individuals give themselves a full six months to prepare, giving them time to find the right surgeon, achieve or maintain their ideal weight and get a plan for aftercare in place. Some people may not need the full six months of prep before their surgery, and that’s okay. You’ll still want to make sure that you’ve taken sufficient time to research, plan and prepare. The better prepared you are for the big day of surgery, the better your results will be. Use the information below as your guide to planning your tummy tuck.
