Common Reasons to Consider Getting a Tummy Tuck

Are you frustrated by stubborn excess fat around your abdomen despite significant weight loss efforts? Does wearing form-fitting clothing or facing beach season fill you with self-consciousness? If so, you are not alone. Many individuals find themselves in this situation, where loose skin and lingering fat detract from their hard-earned weight loss achievements. Fortunately, a tummy tuck offers a solution to these concerns, helping you regain confidence in your appearance and enjoy the benefits of a more contoured and toned abdomen. Here are some reasons why you may want to consider this surgery.

Common Reasons to Consider Getting a Tummy Tuck

Here are some reasons to consider this procedure.

Help Your Posture

Tummy tuck benefits aren’t purely cosmetic. While you’ll enjoy greater self-esteem, you’ll also improve your posture due to the muscle tightening that results from the procedure.

Rebuild Your Body After Pregnancy

Pregnancy causes your stomach to expand gradually. Once you deliver your bundle of joy and your body slowly shrinks down to your pre-pregnancy size (or close to it), your stomach might not be the same.

Since it stretched out so much, you could be left with a pouch of loose skin. While oils and skin-firming creams can have some benefits, a tummy tuck as cosmetic surgery will be the most effective for helping your abdomen look closer to what it did pre-baby.

Reduce Back Pain

Although you might attribute your back pain to the additional stomach mass you’re carrying around, it is actually caused by weak abdominal muscles. An abdominoplasty can tighten up those muscles, lessening back pain.

The additional benefit of improved posture will also spare your spine, further keeping your back pain-free. That’s also the case for treating ventral hernias, which a tummy tuck can do.

A ventral hernia occurs when the abdominal or intestinal tissue creates a sack in the abdominal wall. Having a C-section and losing a lot of weight can cause ventral hernias. When you receive a tummy tuck, the stronger stomach muscles that result can eliminate the hernia.

Assist with Stress Urinary Incontinence

Stress urinary incontinence can cause bladder leaks due to intraabdominal pressure in your midsection. You might leak when exercising, sneezing, laughing, or coughing, so an SUI can cause major embarrassment. Fortunately, a tummy tuck can help.
