Significant weight loss, pregnancy, or aging can leave you with loose skin, excess fat, and flab in your lower abdomen region. Most people refer to this as a ”mother’s apron” because no matter how hard a person tries, the excess tissue cannot be exercised or dieted away. For a toned and more youthful appearance, Sam Jejurikar recommends a tummy tuck procedure.

How do I know if I qualify for a tummy tuck?

The right candidate for this procedure is one with overall good health and:

  • Does not smoke
  • Does not have excess loose skin or oil that fails to improve with exercise and a healthy diet
  • Does not have an enlarged lower or upper abdomen

The procedure and recovery

The process takes about two to three hours and is done under general anesthesia. It is paired with liposuction of the thighs, upper abdomen, and love handles in most cases. During the procedure, Dr. Jejurikar separates the abdominal muscles from the skin by making two incisions. He then stitches back the abdominal muscles into place, removes the excess skin, and closes the incision.

The recovery period can take two weeks to two months. However, most patients go back to work within two to three weeks. Sam Jejurikar encourages his patients to avoid strenuous activities for at least six weeks.
