Abdominoplasty — Houston Tummy Tuck Recovery
There is usually some change in sensation after an abdominoplasty, but in most patients, the sensation will return to an acceptable level with time. It is important to maintain a proper diet and to get regular exercise after the abdominoplasty procedure.
Some patients are able to improve their activity after abdominoplasty because they are not limited by the extra abdominal tissue. Patients also feel that clothes and bathing suits fit better, which gives them more self-confidence. After the recovery is completed, there is no limitation on activity.
The follow-up for abdominoplasty patients is important, because the final result is not seen immediately, and in some circumstances, intervention after the surgery can improve the final result. Even though there is an observable change immediately after surgery, the resolution of swelling and maturation of the scars takes some time.
