Benefits of Abdominoplasty

In today’s world, everyone is completely concerned about shaping themselves to the correct amount of perfection. Getting a trimmer figure is becoming a must on everybody’s wish list. As we can see, many have been looking out for possible ways to contour their body into a healthy, fit one. An Abdominoplasty or in common terms a ‘Tummy Tuck’ is one such way. It is actually a cosmetic surgery involving surgical removal of excess skin and fat from the abdomen (here tummy) which thereby tightens the muscles. Being one of the most recommended and practiced procedures in the world, a tummy tuck extensively solves the problem of sagging loose skin in the abdomen, faced especially by the ones who have undergone a major weight loss and women soon after pregnancy. Now let us look at the benefits of abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck:

Better Posture

After a Tummy Tuck, several people experience a noticeable improvement in their posture. This is because their abdominal muscles are better able to support their spine, making it comfortable to sit or stand improving their posture. The increased support of the spine also reduces back pain which is an added gain specifically for post-pregnant women. Often, bad posture is attributed to bad behavior or say, habitual slouching. So after a tummy tuck, you are presenting a good posture and most importantly a better impression.

Long term Effects

Not only that a Tummy Tuck gives you immediate results, but its effects are also long-lasting if you maintain a stable weight. This is one of the most important benefits of a tummy tuck. You no longer have to worry about doing any surgery once you do a Tummy Tuck.

Good fit

No more worries about what clothes to choose from because you will be fit for all your favorite ones. A Tummy Tuck makes you care less about how presentable you are rather gives you more choices to expand your wardrobe. Even those who have had a major weight loss will be worried about the extra skin folds that make them uncomfortable to wear what they actually want and this remedy clears the dilemma.

Clearing Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are titled as a common bane for women after pregnancy. Since they cannot be prevented early, a Tummy Tuck comes to the rescue. Along with removing the excess skin from the abdomen, a Tummy Tuck also helps in clearing stretch marks since it tightens the skin as well as muscles in the area. The bane thus, is, turned into a blessing!

Now let’s look into some of the medical benefits as well:

Reduction of Stress Urinary Incontinence

Incontinence is something feared by women after pregnancy. It is the uncontrollable leakage of the bladder especially when you are sneezing, coughing, or doing any activity that involves pressure. It also adds to stress and tension among women since they find it uncomfortable when in public. This problem can be reduced by a Tummy Tuck. During the procedure, surgeons can create a slight bladder obstruction using soft tissue near the pelvic area which in turn reduces urinary incontinence. This way any fear of leakage is minimized and it also adds to reducing one reason for post-partum depression.

Hernia Correction

No matter the cause, whether pregnancy or weight, a weak abdominal wall will allow a hernia to form. It occurs when an organ or tissue squeezes through a weak spot in a surrounding muscle or connecting tissue. Since both hernia correction and Tummy Tuck are somewhat similar, a Tummy Tuck can fix the probability of a hernia. Once a ventral hernia is developed, chances are there for it to occur again. Doing an Abdominoplasty hence helps to prevent these future occurrences thereby eliminating possible surgeries in the long run.

Treatment of Diastasis Rectification

Diastasis recti or abdominal separation is a very common condition in which large abdominal muscles separate during and following pregnancy. Most patients with Diastasis recti also have excess skin which is treated by a Tummy Tuck and it also repairs the muscles along. Many surgeons have recommended Abdominoplasty as a solution in this case.

Finally. Increasing Self Confidence

Apart from everything we have discussed above, a Tummy Tuck itself is a confidence booster! A beautifully contoured, flat, slimmer, firmer abdomen is like adding sugar to your confidence. It makes your first impression the best. It makes you fit for anything which by the way makes you proud of your body.
