5 Amazing Health Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

Often, people invest in tummy tuck surgery with the goal of improving their appearance. Indeed, this surgery has the potential to help you achieve a flatter belly and improved confidence, especially when you wear tight clothing. But did you know that a tummy tuck might also improve your health? Here are 5 benefits that some patients have experienced:

Less Back Pain

Following pregnancy or the loss of a significant amount of weight, the abdominal muscles may separate, which can lead to frequent back pain. A tummy tuck can repair those muscles, leading to reduced discomfort and improved posture.

A Stronger Core

A strong core is vital for balance, posture, and virtually all types of physical exercise. Unfortunately, abdominal muscle weakness can reduce your core strength. A tummy tuck can tighten those muscles and help get you on the path to improved fitness.

Correcting a Ventral Hernia

A ventral hernia is a condition that occurs when the intestine or abdominal tissue breaks through the abdominal wall and forms a sac or pocket. This issue can cause sharp pain, vomiting, and constipation. Often, a complete tummy tuck is able to reverse a ventral hernia.

Improved Mobility

After extensive weight loss, there may be a large amount of excess skin that hangs below the abdomen. Not only can this pose problems for hygiene, but it can also interfere with mobility. That extra skin can be removed during a tummy tuck.

Reduced Incontinence

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a condition that occurs when there is too much pressure on the bladder or urethra. That stress can lead to uncontrollable urine leakage, particularly during activities like laughing and sneezing. SUI is more common among women than men, but both sexes can be affected. Research indicates that a tummy tuck may reduce SUI.

Should You Get a Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck might be able to do more than give you a flat, attractive belly. It could also improve your health and boost your overall quality of life! To find out if this surgery could benefit you, consult with a qualified plastic surgeon.
