Most women who experience an Abdominoplasty want to flaunt their taut tummy as soon as possible. When summer rolls around, they don’t want to hide behind loose clothes and oversized t-shirts at the beach or poolside. They want to show off what they have worked so hard to improve.
Weight fluctuation and pregnancy can wreak havoc on your confidence and body self-esteem. Abdominoplasty is designed to help you regain the body contour you were once so proud to have. And, we want you to be able to show it to the world.
Becoming Bikini Ready
It’s natural to get excited about showing off your slim waistline, but the question is how long you should wait to make its debut? The answer is not a simple one because the healing process is different from patient to patient. However, before exposing your tummy tuck incisions to the elements (like the sun), you should wait at least six weeks. Also, swelling and bruising will need to subside which happens in the first few weeks of abdominoplasty recovery.
It is our experience a full three months should pass after surgery before presenting your taut belly poolside or at the beach. These months should give you plenty of time to allow your body to heal properly.
A Good Time to Start
With winter in full force and spring a few weeks ahead, now is a good time to start preparations for abdominoplasty surgery. The cooler months will provide an opportunity to lay low and keep indoors. Also, with the cooler temperatures, you will be more comfortable with wearing layers to hide the initial effects of surgery.
It is also a good time to focus on incision care and scar reduction. There are several methods to reduce the risk of scarring, these include:
- Proper wound healing – The recovery process is critical to your health and reducing tummy tuck scarring. Any inflammation or infection can increase the risk of a visible scar. You should avoid tension by keeping the surgical tape on for as long as possible.
- Compression garments – Compression garments increase blood circulation, prevent tension and reduce swelling. Excessive wound tension can increase scar width, making the inside of the wound to depress and the outside to rise.
- Lifestyle – make sure to apply sunscreen to the incision and avoid sun exposure. Loose fitting clothes during recovery will allow for optimal healing and scar treatment. Smoking is off limits for proper recovery.
Make this Summer the Best Summer
Whether you have a summer vacation planned or you just want to spend more time by the pool, a tummy tuck can give you the confidence you need to wear the summer clothes you like. It accomplishes this by delivering these benefits:
Delivers a Stronger Abdominal Wall
Because pregnancy or weight fluctuation can stretch or tear abdominal muscles, the right lifestyle choices may reduce your weight, but cannot tone your tummy. But an abdominoplasty can strengthen the abdominal wall and give you that toned midsection that will have you killing it on the beach.
You will be extremely excited about your flat and stream-lined stomach.
Optimal Result in a Few Months
Having this body shaping surgery now will ensure results just in time for bikini season. Your efforts of diet and exercise will be exceedingly rewarded with the help of a tummy tuck. Whether you require the full traditional abdominoplasty or a mini tummy tuck, you still have plenty of time to recover before summer.
Smaller Waist and a Killer Body
With a thin, toned waist you will look great whether in swimwear or a summer dress. You will turn heads and get the attention you’ve missed since before pregnancy or weight gain. You will also be able to unload your self-consciousness about the sagging skin, stretch marks, and excessive fat pads in your abdominal area.
