Many women who have just been through a pregnancy and want a mommy makeover find a tummy tuck is just what they’re looking for.
Also known as an abdominoplasty, this procedure can remove up to 10 pounds of excess skin from your abdomen. It tightens the muscles and can give you a toned, well-defined stomach. A tummy tuck is also frequently used to remove excess skin after weight loss and it can even eliminate stretch marks. If you are looking for something to improve your self-confidence, this will certainly do it.
Other reasons to decide on a tummy tuck include the following:
– It can provide great motivation to lose more weight and strive for better health
– It will help increase your tolerance for more intense exercises once that excess skin is gone.
– It will improve the appearance of your body
The Overall Health Benefits Of A Tummy Tuck
The size of a person’s waistline can determine many health problems besides just obesity. Yes, there are many positive results of a tummy tuck, but the health benefits may “outweigh” the cosmetic. Here are a few examples of what a tummy tuck can potentially do for you.
Strengthens Your Core
A tummy tuck can restore a weakened core, strengthen abdominal muscles, and improve overall flexibility. In addition, stronger abdominal muscles can relieve lower back pain and improve posture.
Minimize The Risks For Certain Medical Conditions
Losing this excess skin and fat can help lower your risk of encountering diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, gallbladder disease, and gallstones.
When you strengthen your abdominal muscles, you could avoid unnecessary stress on the stomach muscles that often leads to the formation of a ventral hernia.
Improved Control Over Bodily Functions
Getting older, experiencing one or multiple pregnancies, and losing a significant amount of weight are all common occurrences in life that leave many with reduced bladder and bowel function. These problems can all be improved by losing that extra fat and skin around the tummy.
