What Does A Tummy Tuck Do?

A tummy tuck is the best procedure to help you with any excessive skin on your abdomen. The surgical procedure leaves a scar just below the waistline and most of your clothing including the bikini will hide it well.

In addition to the excessive skin, a tummy tuck also removes excess fat from the abdominal area. This might be just what you need, especially if you have had multiple pregnancies which leaves you with separated muscles in your abdominal area. A tummy tuck brings these separated muscles together giving you a flattened tummy.

Due to these advantages of a tummy tuck, eliminating excessive skin, fat and tightening the muscles, it is a part of the mommy makeover procedure allowing women to regain their pre-baby bodies. This is also a great procedure for those who have lost a considerable amount of weight in a short time leaving them with loose, hanging skin.

Multiple pregnancies or weight loss, both lead to distention of the stomach muscles which cannot be helped simply by diet and exercise. Tummy tuck is a beneficial surgical procedure which tightens the weakened stomach muscles and removes the excess fat and skin as well giving you a flat and tight abdomen.

Weakened abdominal muscles also lead to a sway back or lordosis. After a tummy tuck surgery, patients notice a significant improvement in posture since the abdominal muscles are tightened leading to better spinal support as well. Some kinds of back pain can also be eliminated with this support and posture correction.

Due to its popularity, most people may think that a tummy tuck is an easy surgical procedure. It is important to know that a tummy tuck is in fact a major surgical procedure which takes anywhere from an hour to 5 hours performed under general anesthesia.

The procedure involves elimination of approximately 10 pounds of fat when the underlying tissue is disconnected from the skin. The excessive skin is removed before the abdominal tissue is stitched back. A full recovery from a tummy tuck may take a few weeks.

If you are considering a tummy tuck to get relief from any abdominal issues you have been facing, talk to your surgeon to understand the procedure and its advantages and risks. Millions across the globe are taking advantage of a tummy tuck for aesthetic as well as medical benefits.
