Sometimes dieting, exercising, and the "good old fashioned way" don’t seem to achieve the cosmetic goals you envision. When this happens, Joseph A. Rabson, M.D. offers the tummy tuck, placing the recovery and results of Philadelphia patients in his dexterous hands.
The recovery process naturally takes a little time, but once it is complete, your results will likely prove to be worth the wait!
The Advanced Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center is anchored by a caring and thorough approach. Follow Dr. Rabson’s recommendations strictly, and you will lay the best foundation for your tummy tuck recovery and results. The surgeon emphasizes that adhering to his pre- and post-surgery advice is of critical importance.
In addition to respecting Dr. Rabson’s recommendations, the recovery depends on the type of abdominoplasty you elect and your overall health. Typically, it takes several weeks to feel "back to normal."
Below are some tummy tuck recovery guidelines that the veteran Philadelphia surgeon outlines for his patients:
As this is a major surgery involving repositioning and the removal of skin and fat, a certain amount of discomfort is expected in the first few weeks after surgery. To help you deal with discomfort from swelling, bruising, and pain, Dr. Rabson will prescribe medication.
At any rate, your surgeon will be accessible to you through your recovery! Dr. Rabson urges you to consult with him every step of the way. He is always available.
Results are long-lasting, but their staying power depends on how well you maintain your figure and your health (eating right and exercising is key!). Pregnancy and weight gain will have an effect, so don’t "let yourself go." That said, your tighter tummy should endure for many years. You will proudly come away with a flatter, firmer, tighter, and leaner looking belly area. Explore the benefits page to learn more.
Of course, realistic expectations will be discussed before surgery. Dr. Rabson will also go over potential scarring, which varies in degree. Liposuction is frequently an additional component of the procedure, too.
