Abdominoplasties, or tummy tucks, are some of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the United States. Despite their popularity, there are still many who could benefit from undergoing an abdominoplasty but simply don’t know enough about the procedure.
Learn the benefits of an abdominoplasty and what you can achieve by undergoing this cosmetic procedure.
Address Excess Skin and Fat
One of the major benefits of tummy tucks is helping remove excess fat and skin from the midsection. Either due to pregnancy, significant weight loss, or aging, the abdomen can undergo significant changes that diet and exercise alone cannot address.
A tummy tuck removes skin that has become lax for various reasons. The skin has an incredible ability to revert to its original state, but when the skin has been stretched drastically and rather quickly, it can be difficult to bounce back. Abdominoplasties help remove the excess skin to reveal a slim and taut midsection.
Pregnancy and excessive weight gain can also cause the abdominal wall to become damaged, causing the muscles to separate. When this happens, you may find moving or utilizing your core difficult.
Tummy tucks help repair the abdominal wall, returning functionality and improving posture. Movement and exercise are vital to overall health. An abdominoplasty can help restore your body to keep moving and return to your daily life.
In some instances, the functional improvements of the tummy tuck also include preventing issues with incontinence. The muscles that help exert control over the bladder can become damaged. An abdominoplasty can help repair them and alleviate issues with bladder control.
