Resuming Exercise After a Tummy Tuck

My tummy tuck patients in Austin are often very concerned about recovery from the surgery–specifically, how long until they can return to working out. That’s understandable since many of them are individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight through diet and exercise.

Ask Hayley: KYBELLA®
