Easing Your Way Back Into Exercise After a Tummy Tuck

Getting a tummy tuck with liposuction is one of the most effective ways to get rid of stubborn fat around your abdominal region. Whether you are opting to get a tummy tuck with lipo due to the adverse effects of pregnancy on your body, age, or you’ve just never had that tummy that you’ve always wanted— a tummy tuck with lipo is a game changer. And as one of the most important aspects of getting the results that you desire, it’s important to follow the proper recovery steps, including avoiding exercise. However, once you have been cleared by Dr. Gregory Wiener after about 6 weeks of rest without exercise, it’s important to understand how you can ease your way back into things without overexerting yourself. Read on to learn more.

Start With Cardio

exerciseLet’s face it: when you go back to the gym it will have been at least six weeks before you stepped on any sort of machine or attended any sort of workout class— meaning that you will likely feel a bit out of shape. In order to effectively ease back into things, start with cardio. Hop on an elliptical machine, treadmill, or stationary bike for your first day back at the gym and slowly ease yourself into a speed that will cause your heart rate to elevate. Try this for the first few days to see just how your body and abdominal area reacts to the exercise. If at any point you start to feel any sort of pain or discomfort, contact Dr. Gregory Wiener to make sure you aren’t causing more harm than good.

Ease Into Abdominal Workouts

Now that you have the abdomen that you’ve always wanted, it’s important to perform strength training and muscle building exercises in order to give you sexiest abs as possible. Once you’ve been cleared by Dr. Gregory Wiener, ease yourself into abdominal workouts and try just doing about ten sit-ups and see how you feel. If you feel invigorated and aren’t experiencing any pain, try doing ten more. Add about ten more sit-ups to your routine every day until you can do about 100 or more sit-ups.

Getting back into an exercise routine after undergoing a tummy tuck can feel a bit frightening at first. However, by following the above tips and by listening to your body, you can help to prevent against any sort of injury. To learn more, contact Dr. Gregory Wiener today!
