While abdominoplasty can be a great tool to help you get those smooth, sleek curves and hourglass shape you want, a tummy tuck with muscle repair can come along with a variety of other benefits as well.
Excess skin and muscle tissue in your abdominal area can have a negative effect on your posture and even cause back pain over time. A tummy tuck with muscle repair can help by tightening your abdominal muscles and removing the excess skin that could be contributing to poor posture and discomfort.
By providing stronger spinal support, a tummy tuck with muscle repair can leave you standing taller—literally.
No More Stress Urinary Incontinence
Many women experience stress urinary incontinence after having kids. This can be a frustrating and embarrassing problem, as it causes your bladder to empty itself with even slight pressure, like from sneezing or laughing.
During your tummy tuck procedure, your cosmetic surgeon can remedy this problem by safely blocking part of your bladder with soft tissue, essentially giving you more control.
Keep Weight off Easier
Even though it’s ideal to come as close to your target weight as possible before your tummy tuck, research has found that getting a body contouring procedure could increase your ability to maintain a healthy weight in the future. Your tummy tuck might also help you to feel fuller sooner, which can be a key step to staying at a healthy weight.
It is important to keep in mind, though, that sticking to your balanced diet and exercise routine even after your cosmetic surgery is complete will help you to maintain your same smooth, beautiful results long-term.
