Many people ask the question, “How long will the results of my tummy tuck last?” Having the procedure done by a highly skilled cosmetic surgeon is crucial, but the key to results longevity lies largely with the person having the procedure. The long-term success of a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) depends largely on maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise.
If you don’t have a workable post-tuck maintenance plan, you may unintentionally put the weight back on and slowly undo the work that has been done. It’s important to create an effective post-surgery plan for eating and moving before you have your tummy tuck done. 
  • Do a little research and find the sport, class and/or physical activity you will enjoy most.
  • Do you like to be outside?
  • Do you do best in a class environment, with the motivation and support of those around you?
  • Do you prefer to play on a team?
  • Do you need the guidance and accountability a personal trainer could provide?
  • Do you enjoy the serene solitude of solo exercise?
Pick the plan that works for you and get started! 
Make sure you check with your doctor before starting any new exercise regime, and ensure that you have fully recovered from your procedure before getting active. Once you have the go-ahead, it’s time to get moving–but make it fun!
