Abdominoplasty, or a “tummy-tuck,” can firm up a sagging stomach with an incision that is nearly imperceptibly hidden by blending in with the underwear line of the patient.
Although abdominoplasty can require a longer recovery period than some other forms of cosmetic surgery, it will tone up your figure and provide lasting results that other procedures cannot. Patients can expect to be off work for a time. Activity levels may not return to normal for up to six weeks following the surgery. However, the tummy tuck and the recovery period will prove worth it when there is no longer loose skin, a sagging pot belly, or excessive fat hanging about the abdomen.
