Only skin and fat."In this way following the operation. The woman will have the muscle intact, the nerves in tact. The muscle is alive; it's functioning...it works beautifully," Nalhabedian explains.And according to Nahabedien, patients tend to recover more quickly from this surgery, requiring only a three-day stay. In many cases, patients are even up and walking around the very next day.And Nahbedien says, "By six weeks I tell women they can do anything they want...bike riding, jogging whatever...without any restrictions."
