Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

tummyAs we age, it is only natural for our skin to stretch and sag, especially if you have given birth. While an abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, is great for tightening up your stomach, it also has some medical benefits!

Improves Abdominal Tone and Posture

After giving birth, your stomach muscles can become distended and exercise and diets aren’t as effective to tightening your stomach. A tummy tuck will surgically tighten these weakened muscles and also remove excess skin and fat. This process also can improve support for your spine which will help your posture. Some patients have noticed that better posture can relieve certain back pains!

Help with Ventral Hernia Correction

A ventral hernia is when the intestine and abdominal tissue breaks through the abdominal wall and a pocket or sack is formed. It is very easy for a hernia to form again so an abdominoplasty works to strengthen the abdominal wall and prevent future breaks.
