It’s official – tummy tucks are the #1 Mommy Makeover procedure at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery on Long Island. Every week another patient says “You’ve changed my life.” And that usually has to do with a tummy tuck.
No matter how diligent you are about your diet, no matter how much you exercise, when there is excess skin only a tummy tuck will correct the problem.
Just last week I saw a woman who worked as a fitness instructor and healthcare professional, but whose abdomen was stretched out after three children. She underwent an abdominoplasty at our Long Island plastic surgery office, staying overnight with a private duty nurse and she was back working within 10 days.
Since then she has rededicated herself to exercise and has been able to see dramatic improvements.
And this woman illustrates one of the greatest secrets about happiness after a tummy tuck. Patients who become more fit after a tummy tuck are extremely happy. Just by exercising a little more (gaining some muscle mass or dropping body fat percentage a bit) you can ensure the best result possible. You are really leveraging the removal of skin and tightening of the abdominal wall in order to maximize your results.
So here is a late summer salute to the great moms who take care of their families and sacrifice so much time and energy to others! It is a great pleasure to get to know you. And a pleasure to help you achieve the body you deserve.
