Benefits of Tummy Tuck Surgery

Maybe you’ve lost a lot of weight and that little extra skin is bothering you. Perhaps you’ve just given birth, but your clothes aren’t fitting right. No matter what the reason is, the results of a tummy tuck can be something to look forward to.

Tummy Tucks Can Smooth Stubborn Skin Folds

After losing a significant amount of weight, the skin around the abdomen can sag and lose its elasticity. With a tummy tuck, physicians remove those skin folds. While tummy tucks aren’t meant to produce weight loss, based on the amount of skin it may help assist your efforts with weight loss in the long run.


Tummy Tucks will Give You a Leaner, Stronger Look

A tummy tuck slims down and tones your abdomen so you can wave goodbye to that protruding belly. If you’re a gym buff, what’s something you’re constantly working on but probably struggling to tighten? Your core! Tummy tucks can help aid in producing a leaner and trimmer core by restructuring the abdominal muscles.

After recovery, you’ll have an easier time building up your core strength. It is also not unheard of for patients to experience better posture after the procedure, as the newly tightened muscles are working to support the spine.


Tummy Tucks Can Remove Stretch Marks

Because excisions are done well below the belly button, abdominoplasty not only removes excess skin, but may also repair the abdominal wall. It may improve the appearance of stretch marks in the middle and lower part of the abdomen. The key thing to remember is that stretch mark removal is possible if the patient’s stretch marks are in the regions treated by the procedure.


A Confident New You

Need we say more? You’ll be able to look in the mirror and feel confident about your new look. Additionally, the new look will inspire you to make healthier decisions, such as getting more exercise or improving diet control.
