Plastic Surgery Office Discusses Tummy Tuck Benefits
Tummy tucks have been around since 1890! The medical name for the procedure is abdominoplasty. It works to tighten muscles and remove loose skin to create a flat and toned appearance. Although the surgery is known to have external, confidence boosting benefits, it also possesses a slew of medical benefits. As a plastic surgery office, we thought it would be best to share the medical benefits of tummy tucks with you.
- Reduces Stress Urinary Incontinence. Do you have Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)? This condition can be developed after a vaginal birth and can cause uncontrollable leakage when someone is coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising. While SUIs can be treated without surgery, sometimes, the case is a bit more severe. In this case, undergoing a tummy tuck can help reduce the impact of a SUI.
- Improved Posture. After undergoing several pregnancies and/or extreme weight loss, stomach muscles might not be as strong and supportive as they once were. This causes posture suffering. A tummy tuck can reverse the effect and lead to improved posture and abdominal tone.
- Corrects Ventral Hernia. Sometimes, after losing a massive amount of weight or having a C-section, a ventral hernia can occur. This means that an intestine or abdominal tissue breaks through a wall and forms a sack. Going through a tummy tuck can help to correct a ventral hernia and prevent future ones from occurring.
