What Is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a body contouring procedure that perfects and restores the appearance of the abdomen. During the surgery, excess skin and fat are removed, the abdominal muscles are tightened, and midline separation is repaired. The result is a flatter tummy and a smaller waistline.

Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are common after surgery. These will fade as your body heals. The swelling is usually the last side effect to resolve. Some patients experience swelling for several months after surgery, but much of the swelling should fade before then. You’ll likely be able to return to work within two weeks. You’ll need to wear compression garments full time for a month and half time for two additional weeks.
