Does Abdominoplasty Improve Abdominal Strength?

Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, addresses a number of issues in the midsection of the body. With abdominoplasty, board-certified McLean plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside can remove stubborn fat deposits and excess skin that obscure ideal contours and definition in the stomach. This procedure also allows Dr. Gartside to tighten and firm abdominal muscles, which may help improve things as varied as waist size, core strength, and balance. However, increasing abdominal strength following any body contouring procedure is something that will require effort on your part as well.

Enhancing Results

Following your abdominoplasty recovery, you can take steps to maintain and even enhance your results. These include developing an exercise routine that focuses on core strengthen and balance. You may wish to work with a personal trainer until you feel comfortable with your routine. This can help increase your safety and offer the most ideal results.

Abdominoplasty can act as a springboard for a more attractive, healthier, and evenly toned physique. To learn more, please contact New Image Plastic Surgery Associates and schedule a consultation at our McLean or Reston office today.
