Is Tummy Tuck Surgery Right for You?

Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, is used to remove excess fat and unwanted skin from the midsection. During a full tummy tuck procedure, Indianapolis plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Fata will also reattach separated stomach muscles (diastasis recti) to further draw in the waist and to help prevent medical issues such as herniation.

How Soon After Tummy Tuck Can I Swim?

You should plan on waiting at least six weeks following tummy tuck surgery to go swimming. This is equally true of taking a bath or anything that would require extended contact between incisions and water. While it is absolutely vital that you use a gentle soap and water to keep incisions clean during the tummy tuck recovery process, soaking them can have adverse effects.
