During tummy tuck surgery, Sugar Land plastic surgeon Dr. Malik Kutty draws abdominal muscles together and reattaches those that have separated. This action serves the dual purpose of trimming the waist and firming the core. If proper steps are taken post-tummy tuck, this aspect of the procedure can, indeed, improve abdominal strength.

It is important to remember that tummy tuck surgery alone will not necessarily make your core stronger. What it will do is provide a springboard from which targeted exercises can be used to enhance core strength. Several core strengthening exercises can be done in the comfort of your own home, but more advanced sculpting and toning can be achieved through routines designed for such a purpose. It can be very helpful to work with a personal trainer for a period after your tummy tuck to learn which exercises will be of most benefit to you.

Sugar Land tummy tuck surgeon Dr. Malik Kutty will use your procedure to produce a slimmed-down, ideally contoured, and properly defined midsection. Maintaining or enhancing those results is up to you. Fortunately, maintaining tummy tuck results does not require anything very intense and can easily be achieved through proper diet and a few hours of moderate exercise every week. During your tummy tuck consultation Dr. Kutty can discuss this with you in greater detail to help you determine effective ways to get the most out of your procedure.
