What are the Benefits of a Tummy Tuck?

The tummy is often a place where people suffer from aesthetic concerns. Specifically, you worry that you have too much fat in this area of your body, or that the skin is too loose. It makes you avoid wearing certain items of clothing or taking your top off because you feel so self-conscious.  Thankfully, many treatments exist to help you with common issues like these. Dr. Brenman can provide you with a tummy tuck that will address all of the problems mentioned above.

Tummy Tuck Overview A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that is also known as an abdominoplasty. What does this surgery treat? It will get rid of fat around the stomach area, while also aiming to repair muscles in the abdominal walls. Tummy tucks are popular after pregnancy due to the excess skin and fat that remains there, and they are also commonly used following weight-loss regimes where lots of weight is lost quickly, leaving excess skin in the tummy region.  The process involves surgical incisions that make way for liposuction tubes to dispose of the fat from the area. Your surgeon can then start repairing the abdominal wall muscles and making them shorter and tighter. The incisions are then sutured up and the surgery is over. 

Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

Naturally, a tummy tuck can present a series of benefits for each candidate. Here are the top three benefits of undergoing this surgery:

#1 Repair Abdominal Muscles

When excess weight is gained, the abdominal muscles are stretched out and become long and loose. This makes it harder for them to contract, leading to chronic back pain.  A tummy tuck will help to repair these damaged muscles by shortening them to their normal state, giving you more control over your muscle contractions once more. 

#2 Reduce Skin Laxity

Excess skin is a common concern when lots of weight is lost in a short period. With a tummy tuck, this excess skin can be removed or tightened to make the area look a lot firmer. It reduces skin laxity so you aren’t dealing with drooping folds of skin around your tummy anymore. 

#3 Improve Body Contours

Finally, a tummy tuck can help you improve the way your body looks. Getting rid of fat and tightening excess skin will give your stomach a flatter and more toned appearance – especially when you add in the muscle tightening as well. You can feel more confident and assured of yourself with your new physical appearance!

Am I a Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

Candidates for a tummy tuck will be healthy individuals who have excess skin or stubborn belly fat that they can’t get rid of naturally. Common candidates include women who have given birth, along with individuals who have lost lots of weight in a short amount of time. Ideally, you will be within your target weight and following a healthy lifestyle. You are not a candidate for a tummy tuck if you’re seeking out a quick way of losing weight – this is not a fat loss method or a substitute for exercise and dieting.
