Core exercises after Tummy Tuck?
Many patients are excited about their new abdominal shape and want start doing core exercises such as sit ups. We understand the excitement. We also admire the eagerness to keep up your new investment of getting a tummy tuck. However caution is key in the first few weeks.
How soon after a Tummy Tuck can one do sit ups?
6 weeks in our general answer for sit ups or any other core exercises. We don’t want patients to do core exercises too early because sutures from the tummy tuck procedure can become disrupted.
