A tummy tuck, which is the common name for the medical surgery known as abdominoplasty is a blessing for the mummy makeovers. It is a kind of cosmetic surgery that helps in tightening the muscles around the abdomen giving a clear structure and shape to the body.
Pregnancy is a period during which the women put on weight and accumulate fat in the abdomen. After the birth of the baby, the muscles around the abdomen tend to sag and loosen. This gives a very awkward feeling to the women. They no longer will be able to wear their favourite dresses the same way as they used to before pregnancy. This can lead to a depressing mentality and so a tummy tuck surgery can do a lot to get back the original shape and tone.
Also, this procedure is very useful to people who have reduced considerable weight from their bodies. Very obese men and women may undergo strict diet and exercise regimes and thereby reduce weight. Such heavy weight loss can again cause the loosening of the tummy muscles which can be restored using this surgery. Apart from the cosmetic benefits, tummy tuck surgery also comes with added medical benefits.
Reduces urinary incontinence
Urinary incontinence is a very common issue in women who have just given a virginal birth. Though in most cases they do not require much of medical intervention, in severe cases it may be necessary to look into the problem in depth. A tummy tuck can help in overcoming this incontinence provided the mother has delivered only through the vaginal and has not undergone a caesarean.
After the abdominoplasty, many women feel that their body posture is much more perfect. The reason is due to their added support on the abdomen as the muscles tend to tighten providing the required strength. The abdomen looks flat and toned giving higher confidence and moral boost to the women.
Corrects ventral hernia
In simple terms, the breakage of abdominal tissue may lead to the formation of pockets. This may be the after-effects of a C-section or any other major abdominal surgery or even due to excessive weight loss. When the abdominal muscles are very weak they tend to develop into a hernia. Hernia correction is combined with the abdominoplasty and done by the surgeon thereby saving money, time and effort. This will help in treating the underlying issue and also prevent its recurrence in the future.
