You will notice an improvement in your abdominal contour immediately. A tummy tuck with Southern California plastic surgeon Dr. Agha will result in a flatter, firmer abdominal contour that is proportionate with your body type and weight. The final results may be initially obscured by swelling and your inability to stand fully upright until internal healing is complete. Within a week or two, you should be standing tall and confident with your new, slimmer, contoured profile.
For most patients, the long-term results associated with the tummy tuck procedure are excellent. However, long-term results of tummy tuck surgery are dependent on keeping one’s weight relatively constant, eating a healthy diet, and exercising regularly.
