How Long After A Tummy Tuck Can I Take A Bath?
 

Have you recently lost many kilograms, and your belly looks saggy?

Have you just given birth and your abdomen did not get to the previous shape?

Do you have too much excess skin on your abdomen, which does not respond to exercise or diet? If your answer is yes, then you may consider a tummy tuck for loose skin, also called abdominoplasty.

This surgery will flatten the abdomen and tighten the muscles.  


What is Tummy Tuck?

Abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” is a surgery, which makes the abdomen more firm and thinner. It is a cosmetic procedure, which involves the removal of excess fat and saggy skin from the abdomen in order to flatten the abdomen and tighten the muscles in the abdominal wall.

The tummy tuck is a surgery sought by patients with sagging tissues and loose skin after major weight loss or pregnancy.

The recovery time after a tummy tuck may take a while, and you should consider that you need help in the house for the next few weeks.

You are not allowed to make an effort and lift heavy things. 

Who should not consider a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck must be considered if you are not planning to get pregnant again and if you reached the desired weight.

If you plan to get pregnant, a tummy tuck surgery may create some problems as the belly grows. Your vertical muscles are tightened after a tummy tuck, so there is a bigger possibility of separation.

Liposuction or tummy tuck after c section are very common choices among women, and are perfectly safe and recommended by estheticians if you want to improve your abdomen look.

Facts about tummy tuck

One of the most frequent questions doctors receive is, “How long after a tummy tuck, can I take a bath?”

The answer depends on how quickly your section heals. Just like other surgeries, the incision must be kept away from water until complete healing.

When you are completely healed, your doctor will recommend you exercise after a tummy tuck, which will prevent gaining weight and will keep the muscles tighten for a longer time.

It is important to have a post tummy tuck exercise plan, so your abdomen will remain firm and tight and will prevent you from gaining weight after the tummy tuck.
