A tummy tuck is a procedure to remove excess skin and fat and can help people achieve a flat and toned appearance. However, most people are surprised to learn that tummy tuck offers additional unexpected benefits, including the following.
- Enhanced appearance
Tummy tucks can remove stubborn excess fat, undesirable sagging skin, and unsightly stretch marks. The procedure can significantly enhance your abdominal contours.
2. Clothes fit better and look more flattering
After a tummy tuck, clothes will fit better on your body as they will lie in more flattering positions on your body. You can enjoy looking great in the latest fashion trends as well as in your fitness and yoga gear. No more baggy clothing to hide your unwanted fat after a tummy tuck!
- Improved confidence and self-esteem
Since a tummy tuck can improve your physical appearance, you may become more confident and increase your self-esteem. Your new look can help you become more energetic, more positive, and feel more attractive.
- Better core strength and sculpted stomach
After pregnancy or a significant weight-loss, the muscles in your stomach are stretched, making them weak, detached, or enlarged. You need additional help as diet and exercise can’t help you with stretched and flaccid stomach muscles. A tummy tuck can tighten the stretched out muscles to improve your core strength and abdominal tone. In addition, a tummy tuck will not only improve the shape of your abdomen but also your breasts and buttocks. If you combine the procedure with liposuction, it can also help sculpt your body.
- Enhanced posture
Tightening the abdominal muscles leads to a stronger core. Tightened abdominal muscles provide better support for the spine, allowing you to stand up and sit straighter. Also, since your excess skin and fat are removed, you will not have any weight in the tummy that pulls you forward. As a result, your posture is enhanced.
- Less back pain
Due to your tightened core muscles and eliminate abdominal fat and skin, your spine will be aligned straight without any pressure pulling it forward and increased core strength can result in less back pain.
- Exercise more enjoyable
Sagging skin and excess abdominal fat can weigh you down and limit your range of motion, which makes exercise difficult. Since a tummy tuck removes the excess fat and tightens your core muscles, you will find that exercise is more enjoyable.
- Motivation to maintain your weight
The result of a tummy tuck will need to be maintained by leading a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, many people are motivated to exercise regularly and eat a healthy and well-balanced diet after the procedure.
- Better bladder control
If you suffer from urinary incontinence (a constant urge to pee), a tummy tuck can improve your bladder control as the procedure provides better core muscle strength. In addition, during your surgery, your surgeon can make a small obstruction in your bladder to improve your bladder control.
- Reduced health risks
Excess fat and skin in the abdominal area can cause serious health problems, including fungal infections, diabetes, heart disease, liver disease, heart attack, and much more. Excess skin and fat put pressure on your internal organs, feeding them toxins and reducing healthy function. A tummy tuck can improve your general health and lower your risk of any future health issues.
