Reasons to Consider a Tummy Tuck

Many women will agree that the stomach is one of the most frustrating and troublesome body parts, especially after childbirth and extreme weight loss. The abdominoplasty, better known as a tummy tuck, is a procedure designed to help the stomach appear flat and toned. It’s become incredibly popular since 2000, with the number of tummy tuck procedures completed rising nearly 90 percent in under 15 years. This is likely because a tummy tuck offers both cosmetic and medical benefits.

 

Reduce Stress Urinary Incontinence

It’s very common for women to develop stress urinary incontinence after a vaginal birth. SUI can be identified by bladder control problems, especially when coughing, sneezing, exercising, and laughing. A tummy tuck procedure can actually correct stress urinary incontinence by creating a slight bladder obstruction using soft tissue near the pelvis. The tissue helps to reduce incontinence and support normal bladder regulation.

 

Enjoy A More Toned Abdominal Region

This cosmetic benefit is what launched the tummy tuck procedure into the spotlight. After extreme weight loss or pregnancy, the stomach often becomes stretched out and weak. This is a problem that diet and exercise alone cannot fix. An abdominoplasty serves to surgically tighten those weak abdominal muscles and remove excess skin and fat. The result is a flatter, stronger, and more toned midsection that can help improve posture and support exercise efforts in the future.

 

Correct a Ventral Hernia

Most women don’t know what a ventral hernia is until they have one. It occurs most often during extreme weight loss and C-section surgeries when the intestine or abdominal tissue breaks through the abdominal wall and forms a pocket. Though a ventral hernia doesn’t require an abdominoplasty to heal, a tummy tuck is often done in conjunction with a hernia repair to strengthen the abdominal wall, which prevents future hernias from forming.

 

Given these three benefits, it makes sense that tummy tuck procedures have nearly doubled since the year 2000.
