An abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck as its widely known, is an intricate contouring procedure for the area in the midsection of your body – the region below the belly button. At the end of the procedure, you see a trimmed and toned appearance. Women who have gone through pregnancies commonly get this done. By doing this, they get the tightness back in their bellies, and look like they did before they got pregnant. People who simply want to lose the extra flab can opt for it too. It is a surgical procedure, and the doctor will offer certain tips to ensure a safe and quick recovery, among which are – a healthy and balanced diet, daily exercise, inclined sleeping, and use of compression wear.
