Abdominoplasty Post-Op Diet and Exercise

The operation known as an abdominoplasty is also referred to as a tummy tuck. It is a procedure performed by a cosmetic surgeon in order to tighten up loose muscles and skin in the belly region. As a fairly normal part of the aging process, human skin begins to lose its elasticity, causing it to become saggy in many regions. Rapid weight gain and loss through the years may add to this problem. The aftermath of pregnancy and childbirth is often a stretched out belly, as well. Not only is the external skin stretched out in these cases, but the internal corset of connective tissue which should hold the organs tautly in place is also stretched out and drooping, as well. No amount of exercise will help the internal corset of connective tissue to morph back into a tighter position.

During an abdominoplasty, a patient is sedated via general anesthesia in a hospital or another clinical setting. An overnight or even two night stay is usually required following the procedure. Incisions will be made by the surgeon to cut away redundant skin, tissue and fat. The midsection will be tightened both internally and externally and sutured closed. Drains will be placed in order to alleviate the build-up of fluids. Following the procedure, a compression garment called an abdominal binder will be worn in order to support the healing tummy.

It will take from six weeks to three months for swelling to recede after this operation. There will be redness, bruising and pain in the initial days and weeks post-op. Once three months time has passed, the patient will have a flattened abdominal region and will want to keep it that way.

If a patient did not adhere to a healthy diet and exercise routine before surgery, they will definitely want to commit to that afterward. Exercise should be incorporated into a daily routine in order to keep the body healthy and slim. Formal exercises are not mandatory, however. Walking around the block each night with the family or pets is a great casual way to incorporate daily fitness. Dancing, bowling and skating can be fun ways to socialize and burn calories, too. Joining some more formal classes for such practices as aerobics or yoga will be helpful, if time and budget allow for it.

Diet should be healthy every day and include plenty of water, lean proteins, fresh veggies and fruits along with whole grains. Desserts, alcoholic beverages and junk food don’t need to be completely eradicated, but they should be severely curtailed. A person can begin to view fresh seasonal fruits as a delicious dessert option rather than a part of a restrictive diet. This view is all in the attitude of the individual. Restaurant meals can be fat laden and served in oversized portions. Split restaurant meals with a friend or spouse in order to save on calories as well as cash. Taking home half for another meal will be a wise choice, too.

An abdominoplasty can slenderize a stretched out tummy, allowing a person to feel good again in swimwear and shirts tucked in. The proper diet and exercise can keep it that way.
