Medical Benefits of Tummy Tuck

Medical Benefits of Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty, popularly known as a tummy tuck in Indiana, is a cosmetic surgery procedure which tightens the abdominal muscles and removes excessive skin and fat giving you a toned and flat abdomen.

Abdominoplasty has mostly been part of the mommy makeover procedure which is specially designed for mommies to regain their pre-pregnancy shape. In addition to that, a tummy tuck is also beneficial for those who have lost a significant amount of weight in a relatively short time-period.

Medical Benefits

Since it is one surgical procedure with more medical benefits than mere aesthetic purposes, the number of people opting for a tummy tuck has been steadily rising. Here are some common medical  tummy tuck benefits:

  • Stress urinary incontinence – a fair percentage of women develop SUI or stress urinary incontinence after a vaginal childbirth. This involves bladder control where a cough, sneeze, laugh or exercising can result in uncontrolled leakage. Usually this can be corrected in the absence of a surgery, but those who require further care are known to benefit from a tummy tuck. A tiny bladder obstruction is created using the soft tissue near the pelvic region which helps in reduction of the incontinence.

  • Abdominal posture and tone – after significant weight loss and multiple pregnancies, the muscles of the abdomen become distended where exercising and dieting may not help. Tummy tuck not only removes the excessive fat and tissue giving you a flatter abdomen but also tightens these weak abdominal muscles. These weak muscles could lead to lordosis or a sway back. After their tummy tuck procedure, women have seen an improvement in their posture and relief in certain cases of back pain.

  • Ventral hernia – significant weight loss and surgeries like C-section or appendectomy leave the abdominal muscles weak. This could lead to tissue from the intestine or abdomen breaking through the wall to form a pocket or sack. Tummy tuck tightens the weak abdominal muscles and your surgeon may recommend tummy tuck for repair of the hernia to avoid future recurrence.
