The Benefits of Having A Tummy Tuck
How can a Tummy Tuck help you after pregnancy and childbirth?
The Tummy Tuck is, understandably, one of the most talked-about plastic surgeries. The Tummy Tuck surgery is a procedure that removes the excess skin from a person’s abdomen where it may be sagging or loose to create a firmer, smoother, and more comfortable tummy section. The aesthetic benefits of this are obvious — everyone wants to have a smooth, flat tummy. However, there are many benefits to the Tummy Tuck that you may not have considered, and some that may show you that having a Tummy Tuck can do more than just complete your summer look.
The first important hurdle to consider is whether you are eligible for a Tummy Tuck, which requires certain commitments such as not planning on bearing more children and have a BMI under 28. It is also important to consider that the Tummy Tuck is not a procedure for weight loss but is a procedure to remove excess skin from the abdomen that is a result of weight loss or post-pregnancy. This is important because one of the key benefits of having a Tummy Tuck is postpartum women suffering from back pain and incontinence. In a media release from the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), a study was taken of 214 women undergoing an abdominoplasty (a Tummy Tuck), most of whom were middle-aged and had born more than one child, and found that after the surgery, 91% of patients found that their serious or moderate back pain had lessened significantly. By committing to a Tummy Tuck procedure and then a healthy lifestyle following the surgery, you can get your body exactly where you want it to be.
In the same study, it was seen that urinary incontinence was also lessened or solved in almost all of the women who underwent a Tummy Tuck here in Australia. These medical improvements not only firm up the look of your abdomen to look more like you want it to, but it also helps with those significant and sometimes embarrassing conditions that naturally arise post-pregnancy. For a more full refinement procedure, you could also consider a Mummy Makeover: a procedure that combines a Tummy Tuck with breast surgery (breast augmentation, breast lift) to give your body a full makeover. Having a Mummy Makeover can help to further lessen back pain and can even include liposuction to help to get rid of some excess fat during your makeover.
