The many benefits of a tummy tuck

adult 1867743 640 Pregnancy, aging and fluctuations in weight can lead to sagging skin, separated muscles and excess fatty tissue in the abdominal area. Diet and exercise alone often aren’t enough to reverse the unwanted appearance of the abdomen. A tummy tuck surgery is a popular way to get you the midsection you desire, and it comes with many benefits in addition to aesthetics. Read on to learn more about how a tummy tuck may help you.

A tummy tuck is well known for tightening the muscles in the abdomen, reducing the appearance of a protruding abdomen and slimming the waistline for a desired contour.

Improved confidence

The primary benefit of a tummy tuck is improved confidence. You’ll be able to wear clothing that’s truer to size and not feel uncomfortable from a pooch or the so-called muffin top.

Reduced risk of infection

If your skin is extremely loose and hangs over a crease in the skin, you may be at risk of infection within the fold. A tummy tuck will remove that apron of skin to remove that risk of skin irritation or infection.

Better posture

If you’ve been pregnant or lost a significant amount of weight, then you know how your abdominal muscles have stretched and become weakened. Weak abdominal muscles are often associated with poor posture from lordosis, a curving inward of the lower back. Tightened muscles from a tummy tuck can better support the spine and improve posture. A better posture helps reduce or eliminate certain types of back pain.

Corrected hernia

When the intestine or abdominal tissue breaks through the abdominal wall, it can form a pocket or sack known as a ventral hernia. Abdominal weakness from weight loss or C-section surgeries can cause this hernia. Abdominoplasty can correct a ventral hernia as it fixes the weakened abdominal muscles and prevent future occurrences.

A tummy tuck can be very appealing to many people because of the aesthetic and medical benefits this popular surgery offers. To learn more, schedule a consultation by calling (585) 922-5840 today.
