The Health Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

The tummy tuck is among the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed each year. It results in a flatter midsection. Also known as an abdominoplasty, the procedure trims excess fat and skin in the abdominal area and tightens the abdominal muscles. When severe weight loss, pregnancy or age leave the stomach area saggy or weak, a tummy tuck can help.

There are many health benefits to a tummy tuck. Here are some of the main reasons people seek out this surgery.

Corrects Sagging SkinTummy Tuck in Bucks County, PA, and Hunterdon County, NJ

Significant weight loss results in skin wrinkles. After losing fat, the stomach muscles still remain relaxed. That’s where a tummy tuck can help. A tummy tuck can address both of these concerns – sagging skin and weak muscles. It surgically tightens weak muscles while removing excess skin and fat to flatten the abdomen.

Eliminates Stretch Marks

As the belly grows during pregnancy, many women experience stretch marks in the region between the belly button and pubic hair. During a tummy tuck, these stretch marks get eliminated.

Increases Tolerance to Exercise

When you have excessive abdominal skin and fat along with weak abdominal muscles, it can be very difficult to exercise. But a tummy tuck will make it much easier for you to run, walk and do aerobic exercise. This can help you to lose weight and retain your weight loss. Not only will you be able to live a more active lifestyle, you’ll also improve your overall health.

Improves Posture and Eliminates Back Pain

Weakened abdominal muscles and excess skin can lead to poor posture, and this can result in back pain. A tummy tuck will help to strengthen and tighten the abdominal muscles. When the spine is better supported, you can stand straighter, helping to eliminate back pain.

Helps You Feel Better About Yourself

Being happy with your body allows you to feel better about yourself. A tummy tuck can help boost your self-confidence.
