So after a Tummy Tuck are you saying that you should not have to do crunches ever again? They won’t be of any benefit? Does a tight ab mean a strong ab? And what about strengthening the core?

A: exercise after tummy tuck

After a tummy tuck it’s important to still maintain your weight through diet and exercise. Sit-ups or crunches can be done several months after you have fully healed from the surgery. The purposed of these exercises will be to further strenghten and tone your abdominal muscles. The surgery itself will relocate your muscles back into the proper location or position. The sit-ups will help ensure that they remain strong and help contribute to a flat appearing abdomen.

Best wishes,
