Benefits of a tummy tuck surgery
Firstly, what is a tummy tuck? A tummy tuck is a procedure that removes excess skin and fat to reveal a slimmer and more toned midsection.
A full tummy tuck surgically tightens the abdominal muscles. There are many benefits following a tummy tuck surgery and 10 of these benefits are:
1- You will look better
A major motivation for a tummy tuck is improvements to appearance. Tummy tucks can remove ugly stretch marks, unsightly sagging skin, and stubborn excess fat, which can significantly improve your abdominal contours.
2- Your clothes will fit well and flatter you
A tummy tuck can significantly improve how clothing fits so that it lies in more flattering positions on the body. You’ll be able to look great in the latest fashions and can avoid wearing baggy and daggy oversized clothing.
3- You will have improved confidence and self-esteem
Because of the physical improvements from a tummy tuck, many patients develop an improved sense of confidence and self-esteem. Your new body can help you be more positive, more energetic and feel more attractive.
4- You will have better core strenght and a sculpted stomach
After major weight fluctuations or pregnancy, your stomach muscles can become weak, distended or detached. Flaccid stomach muscles don’t respond to diet or exercise and require additional help.
The tummy tuck surgically tightens your stretched out muscles to improve abdominal tone and core strength. Having tummy tuck surgery can improve body shape in more areas than just the abdomen.
Tightening the abdomen also tightens the mons pubis. The surgery can also enhance the appearance of your breasts and buttocks. Additional liposuction can also help sculpt your body.
5- You will have improved posture
When your abdominal muscles are tightened, your core becomes stronger. Tightened abdominal muscles provide better support for your spine, which allows you to sit and stand up straighter.
The removal of excess skin and fat also prevents the weight of your tummy from pulling you forward, thereby improving your posture.
6- You will most likely have less back pain
Since a tummy tuck tightens the core muscles and removes excess abdominal skin and fat, it allows the spine to align straight without pressure pulling it forward. Reduced forward pressure, straighter spine alignment, and increased core muscle strength can lead to a decrease in back pain.
7- You will be able to exercise more easily
Having excess abdominal fat and sagging skin can inhibit range of motion and weigh you down, making exercise difficult. With these removed and your core muscles tightened, many exercises become easier and more enjoyable.
8- You will be motivated to keep your weight stable
Research has revealed that Bariatric patients who have surgery to remove excess skin are more likely to keep the weight off afterwards.
The removal of abdominal fat also increases satiety by reducing the levels of appetite-affecting hormones.
The tummy tuck effectively reduces hunger, helps facilitate exercise, and provides more motivation to stay on course.
Patients who maintain a healthy lifestyle after their tummy tuck can expect to enjoy their new shape for a very long time.
9- You will have better bladder control
If you experience urinary incontinence (the urgent need to pee) you may have improved bladder control after a tummy tuck. This is due to better core muscle strength. Additionally, a plastic surgeon can create a small obstruction for the bladder using soft tissue in the pelvic area to improve your bladder control.
10- You will potentially have reduced health risks
Many long-term health problems arise from excess fat and skin in the abdominal area. These problems include everything from diabetes and fungal infections to heart disease, liver disease, heart attacks, and more. Excess fat and skin put pressure on the internal organs, inhibiting healthy function and feeding them toxins.
A tummy tuck can greatly improve your overall health and lower the risk of any future medical problems.
