Tummy tucks offer men and women the chance to remove some loose skin around their midsection, and while many people may enter the procedure well-versed in what to expect in terms of results after their tummy tuck recovery, others may not be quite as aware.
Perhaps the biggest results you'll notice after tummy tuck surgery is that your abs will be significantly firmer and flatter, and you'll soon notice a number of benefits. In addition to feeling better about your appearance, many patients often report noticing that their clothes fit better, and as a result, look better, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
Knowing about the significant benefits of the procedure is important, but you should also be aware of tummy tuck scars. The scars from the incisions will fade over time, ASAPS reports, but they will never completely disappear.
Although the surgery will put you well on your way to the flat stomach you've always envisioned, that doesn't mean you can rest on your laurels once the recovery period is over. Living an unhealthy lifestyle, including not exercising and eating poorly, may erase all the strides you made.
