Many of us are familiar with the aesthetic advantages of an abdominoplasty procedure but it can also deliver the benefits of restored core weakness, strengthened abdominal muscles, and also enhanced flexibility. Improved abdominal muscles can even minimise lower back pain and improve your posture.
Known as a tummy tuck, the surgery can remove a substantial amount of excess skin from your abdomen. It tightens the abdominal muscles giving you a more taught stomach area. A tummy tuck is also done to take away excess skin as a result of substantial weight loss.
Other reasons to go for on a tummy tuck include:
– extra motivation to lose more weight and aim for better health
– increase your tolerance for more intense exercise/activity
– improve the aesthetic appearance of your body
Here is just a small selection of tummy tuck benefits:.
Minimize Health Risks
When you lose the excess skin, you also help lower your risk of a number of medical conditions including diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, gallbladder disease and gallstones.
Stronger abdominal muscles means you avoid extra stress on the stomach muscles that can lead to a ventral hernia.
Improve Bladder Control
Any reduced bladder and bowel function you may have, can all be improved by losing that extra tummy fat and skin.
