PHOENIX, AZ, August 15, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The results of a tummy tuck can be stunning. A flatter, tighter, more toned abdomen along with increased muscle definition and strength can all be achieved through this procedure. However, a tummy tuck is a complex surgical procedure and not one you will want to repeat on a regular basis. Fortunately, once you have fully recovered from your tummy tuck, maintaining your results can be simple and enhance your overall health as well.
Diet and Exercise
The most effective way to maintain and even enhance your tummy tuck results is with proper diet and exercise. Many men and women find the abundant information on these topics to be overwhelming. It doesn't have to be. In fact, leading a healthy lifestyle requires very little effort at all.
Your diet should consist of a wide variety of foods. Fruits, vegetables, complex carbohydrates, and lean meats should all be regular parts of your daily diet. Avoid restricting nutrient intake and yo-yo dieting. These things can actually have an adverse effect on your general health and physical appearance.
Drink plenty of water every day and try to limit your intake of sugary drinks and snacks. As a general rule, if it comes in a box or can, it's not very good for you. Opt for whole foods as close to their natural source as possible and be prepared to treat your taste buds to wonders heretofore unknown. Try new recipes and foods you are unfamiliar with. This can make the process of healthy eating both a culinary adventure and a physical boon.
Exercise is essential for a healthy body and long-term tummy tuck results, but it doesn't have to be arduous or intense. Aim for at least two hours of moderate exercise every week. This can include walking, swimming, biking, and yoga, just make sure you are raising your heart rate and challenging yourself.
Of course, if you'd like, you can also include more strenuous forms of exercise. Your tummy tuck will reconnect abdominal muscles, making them ripe for toning. Abdominal exercises, weight lifting, and more intense activities such as rock climbing can all help sculpt your body following a tummy tuck.
Most importantly, have fun with your new body. A tummy tuck can increase your energy and help make activities more enjoyable. Modifying your lifestyle to respect your new frame will help you enjoy long-lasting results and a much better quality of life.
