When it comes to tummy tucks, there are many options available to achieve the results you’re looking for. One of the most popular procedures is a tummy tuck, which can be combined with a breast lift or breast augmentation.
A tummy tuck is performed by removing excess skin and fat from the abdomen and tightening underlying muscles. The procedure is commonly performed after pregnancy, weight loss or simply to improve body contour.
1. Lose Weight
The most obvious benefit of getting a tummy tuck is that it helps you lose weight. The surgeon removes excess skin and fat from your abdomen, which can lead to significant weight loss (about 30 percent of the original excess skin).
2. Improve Body Image
Another benefit of a tummy tuck is that it improves body image by removing excess skin from your abdomen and tightening the muscles underneath it. You’ll feel more confident about wearing revealing clothing or bathing suits, and it may also help boost your self-esteem or even improve your sex life if you have partners who enjoy looking at a flat stomach instead of rolls of fat!
3. A Flatter Stomach
After pregnancy or weight loss, loose skin often hangs down over your belly button — especially if you’re overweight or over age 50. A tummy tuck can reduce this problem by removing excess skin and tightening abdominal muscles at the same time; it’s essentially a combination procedure that eliminates loose skin while tightening your abdomen.
Excess abdominal fat can cause back pain by compressing nerves in the spine.
Before undergoing a tummy tuck, it’s important to understand what is involved in the procedure, its potential risks and benefits as well as your recovery time. We encourage you to speak with your surgeon about these factors before making any decisions about whether or not this procedure is right for you.
