A tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from your abdomen. It also tightens the abdominal muscles. You can benefit from a tummy tuck to eliminate stubborn fat deposits and loose skin in your abdominal area that do not fade with diet and exercise. You can also have the procedure to tighten muscles and skin that stretch after several pregnancies. East Windsor tummy tuck is suitable for men and women. You cannot have a tummy tuck if you want to have kids in the future. There are many benefits of a tummy tuck, and here are some.
It improves appearance and self-confidence
Sometimes regular exercise may not eliminate all your abdominal fat. A tummy tuck removes all the stubborn fat that may be resistant to diet and exercise, improving your abdomen’s appearance. The procedure contours your belly, leaving it proportionate to your body. An improved look enhances self-confidence. After a tummy tuck, you will notice most of your clothes fit and look better, boosting your self-confidence.
It relieves hernia
A hernia is one of the most painful conditions you can have. If you have a ventral hernia, a tummy tuck treatment can help relieve pain and prevents it from recurring. A tummy tuck tightens your abdomen muscles and strengthens your abdominal wall, reducing the recurrence of a ventral hernia. Tightening the abdominal muscles prevents the tissue from breaking through the wall. A tummy tuck can effectively deter the redevelopment of a hernia when combined with hernia repair surgery.
It eliminates cesarean section scars
If you undergo a cesarean section, you may have lasting scars that can be unpleasant. During the tummy tuck procedure, your surgeon can remove the blemishes by eliminating loose skin or incorporating them into the new scars from the treatment. If your specialist integrates your old scars into the abdominoplasty incisions, there is a high chance they will heal appropriately and disappear.
It reduces back pain and improves posture
A tummy tuck helps to minimize back pain. After giving birth or losing too much weight, you may experience back pain due to your weakened stomach muscles. A tummy tuck removes the excess stomach fat, flattens your abdomen, and tightens the weakened muscles, giving you abdominal support, and reducing back pain. A tummy tuck helps improve your posture by eliminating soft tissue and tightening abdominal muscles, giving more support to your spine.
It reduces stress urinary incontinence
Stress urinary incontinence (STI) occurs when there is too much pressure on your bladder or urethra. It is characterized by uncontrollable urine leakage due to sudden and forceful actions like sneezing, coughing, and exercising. STI is common in women who give birth through the vagina. A tummy tuck reduces stress urinary incontinence through your surgeon creating a bladder obstruction using the soft tissue located near your pelvic region.
