Can a Tummy Tuck Improve Abdominal Strength?

Serving Greenwood, Greenville, Columbia, South Carolina & nearby Augusta, Georgia

Weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and a lack of core exercise can all allow abdominal muscles to separate and weaken. This, in turn, may impact things as diverse as balance and posture. During your tummy tuck procedure, Greenville plastic surgeon Dr. Ted Vaughn will tighten abdominal muscles to produce a more contoured and toned appearance. As an added benefit, tightening these muscles may also help improve overall abdominal strength.

It’s up to You

As with any body contouring procedure, you play a very direct role in determining final results. By itself, tummy tuck surgery provides a springboard for a stronger core, but the procedure alone cannot give you optimal strength. For that, you will need to remain dedicated to leading a healthy and active lifestyle following your procedure.

Core exercise in particular may be of great benefit following recovery from tummy tuck surgery. Our Greenville plastic surgeon encourages you to seek out a personal trainer or other experienced professional to provide guidance based on your specific needs.

Tummy tuck surgery can produce ideal contours and a more attractive body. With a little effort on your part it can also provide the perfect starting point for a stronger, ideally toned frame.
