A tummy tuck is a procedure that tightens the muscles in the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin. It is estimated that the number of tummy tuck procedures increased by 87 percent from 2000 to 2014. Many people are opting to get this procedure because it has a number of benefits.
A tummy tuck can last for many years. However, you will have to do your part to maintain the results of this procedure. Eating right and exercising will increase your chances of maintaining the results of this procedure for a long time.
Furthermore, a tummy tuck may help you maintain the results of weight loss surgery. There was a study done that showed people who got a tummy tuck along with weight loss surgery only re-gained one pound within the first year. Patients who only got the weight loss surgery gained four pounds.
Get Rid Of Stretch Marks
Stretch marks develop as the result of the stretching of the skin. There are creams and lotions that are designed to get rid of stretch marks, but many of them are not effective. A tummy tuck may help you get rid of stretch marks. Because this procedure removes excess skin, it can also remove stretch marks.
When many people think about the benefits of a tummy tuck, they think about the cosmetic benefits. However, tummy tucks have many other benefits. A tummy tuck can strengthen the abdominal muscles, which helps support the spine. This will make it easier for you to stand up straight. It can also alleviate back pain.
Easy To Conceal
The tummy tuck scar is typically located around the pubic bone. That is why it is easy to conceal the tummy tuck scar.
Many people are ashamed to wear certain clothing because they do not like the way that their stomach looks. However, a tummy tuck will allow you to wear just about any type of clothing with confidence.
