How Can I Benefit From a Tummy Tuck?

tummy tuck You probably already know the basics of what a tummy tuck does: It slims and enhances the appearance of your abdomen. But some of the details, including the specific benefits it can offer you, have yet to be discovered. Today’s blog covers those details and helps you decide if a tummy tuck might be right for you.

How a Tummy Tuck Reshapes Your Body

Tummy tucks generally cover the area from below the belly button down to your hips. Many people, both women and men, may struggle with extra fat in this area. Pouches of skin, especially after pregnancy and childbirth, are another common complaint that tummy tucks can help to address.

Generally, the surgery involves incisions between the hip bones and around the navel. Excess skin is removed, and extra fat is removed through liposuction. A tummy tuck also involves abdominal muscle tightening, which essentially means that stretched-out or separated muscles are repaired and moved back into their proper place within your abdomen.

A tummy tuck allows for significant changes in your abdominal area. To keep the newly repositioned and repaired skin and muscles properly in place so they can heal, you have both self-dissolving internal sutures and external surgical glue. The lack of external sutures helps reduce scarring as you heal.

How a Tummy Tuck Benefits You

A tummy tuck is not just about looking great — although it certainly does offer the benefit of helping you get swimsuit ready. It can also help you feel more confident in your own body, which is truly priceless. Many women and men say they feel like their younger selves again after a tummy tuck.

In addition, a tummy tuck restores your abdominal tissue and muscle to a healthy place. It is like getting a refresher for your abdomen. As long as you maintain your weight through diligent healthy eating and regular exercise, you can maintain your new physique for the long term.
