The 6 Best Benefits of a Tummy Tuck!

You have likely heard about a tummy tuck procedure, but you might not fully understand what it is about. Through the name of the surgery, you can make an educated guess that it has something to do with improving the look of your tummy. However, it is so much more than just cosmetic surgery. In addition to enhancing your appearance, a tummy tuck has numerous other benefits!


1. Improved Appearance

For most women, this is the primary reason why they choose to undergo a tummy tuck procedure. Abdominoplasty surgery dramatically changes the appearance of your abdomen by sculpting the body figure to a more desired appearance. After the operation, patients are pleased to see that they have a firmer, flatter abdomen that is more proportionate to their weight and natural body figure. If you are struggling with your body after pregnancy or substantial weight loss, a tummy tuck might be just what you need to feel confident about your body's beautiful appearance.

2. Enhanced Posture

A silent epidemic is currently happening throughout our society. Due to our desk-focused jobs, an overall increase in weight, and reduced activity brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, rates of posture-related medical problems are skyrocketing. While a tummy tuck is not a standard method of improving one's posture, it absolutely is a benefit of the procedure. As the core abdominal muscles are tightened, your back and spine will be better supported by these muscles, reducing the strain on the rest of your body and improving your posture.

3. Relieved Back Pain

Having good posture allows you to sit and stand tall, exuding confidence and improving your appearance. However, another benefit to an improved posture comes from the relief of back pain. As previously mentioned, posture-related medical issues, such as bulging or herniated discs, are on the rise. By improving your posture, you can reduce the risk of developing back conditions or improve your current ones, therefore relieving your back pain.

4. Hernia Relief

A hernia is one of the most painful injuries that can happen to anybody. If you are suffering from a certain type of hernia — a ventral hernia — a tummy tuck procedure can be an option in addition to a hernia repair to alleviate pain and prevent its redevelopment. By tightening the abdomen muscles and strengthening the abdominal wall through an abdominoplasty, you can reduce the recurrence of a ventral hernia by preventing tissue from breaking through the abdominal wall.

A tummy tuck procedure is not an adequate method of repairing a ventral hernia. However, when combined with a hernia repair surgery, it can effectively deter the return of one.

5. Easier to Exercise

Were you once an athlete? Were you at one point physically active, but your job or pregnancy have gotten in the way? If this is the case for you as it is for many other women, you may be finding it more difficult to exercise and work your tummy fat away. With a newly sculpted abdomen and stomach, the activities that you used to love so much will become less laborious and more enjoyable. With a tighter tummy and the lower weight that results from a tummy tuck, it will be much easier to keep the weight off than before your surgery.

6. Removal of Caesarean Section Scars

If you are one of the thousands of women who have undergone a cesarean section, you may have lasting scars that bother you. In a tummy tuck surgery, your old scars from the C-section will either be removed with the removal of loose skin or they will be incorporated into the new scars from the tummy tuck. When the old scars are integrated into the incisions of the abdominoplasty, it increases the chances that they will heal properly and disappear.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
