Have you been thinking of a Tummy Tuck
Learn more about tummy tuck also known as abdominoplasty and it’s benefits
We live in a world where our appearance is everything. Superfoods, crazy diets, healthy nutritious shakes are all the rage.
After pregnancy, severe weight loss or due to advanced age the stomach area tends to become saggy and weak. A lot of moms apply creams and lotions which sort-of promise to fix this issue. But, the truth it that it’s next to impossible to slather your tummy in creams which have zilch impact.
A few years ago, I read a story about a woman who absolutely wished more than anything that she was one of those girls who popped out a few little ones and bounced right back to a sexy-fit body (and eventually she underwent a surgery to achieve what she desired). She also said how happy she felt for the journey she undertook and how grateful she was that the body she lived through saw some crazy stress in building her house, housing her little ones in the womb, birthing two healthy babies and undergoing stress on losing her third baby in the last trimester. She was grateful to the imperfect body which is her own and healthy. She said- she felt that no matter what- it’s okay to be imperfect but it’s even okay to want to do something about it.
The story about that woman inspired me in ways I can’t express. She absolutely did not have this procedure for anyone but herself. What procedure?
“Tummy tuck” aka abdominoplasty!
So, one day I decided I was going to start caring more about me.. that I was going to start going for my dreams even if it meant doing something completely radical. I want to look fit and back in shape. And there is absolutely nothing wrong about that!
So, read my story for I am going to share a few amazing facts with you. I am sharing my story so you are not under the wrong impression or dilemma.
For those of you living under a rock, a tummy tuck also known as abdominoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the abdomen. It removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.
Here are six amazing benefits of getting a tummy tuck:
1. Flatter stomach:
The reason why getting a tummy tuck is the latest fad is because of the narrower waistline and flatter abdomen. I mean who doesn’t want that perfect figure! After you get an abdominoplasty all the loose and/or fat skin gets removed and thus tightening the skin in that area. Also the fat pockets are removed as a result of the liposuction that is performed during a tummy tuck procedure. Since the abdominal muscles are tightened as well, the overall look is that of a slimmer you.
2. Removes stretch-marks:
98 percent women have stretch marks. It’s a common topic of discussion during a lot of gossip sessions. Those white lines don’t disappear easily or ever! And so, a lot women are conscious in a swimsuit or anything else that reveals those lines. But you don’t need to worry anymore, as loose skin is removed effectively from the belly to the bikini line after a tummy tuck, the stretch marks in that area also get removed. Tummy tuck removes those lines permanently.
3. Reduces stress urinary incontinence:
After a vaginal birth a woman sometimes develops stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The pee comes out involuntarily during laughing or coughing or say sneezing. Plastic surgeons can help the patient with this situation by obstructing the bladder with soft tissue during the abdominoplasty procedure. It is extremely safe.
4. Enhances other features:
Your legs, hips, buttocks and other body parts also get improved if your stomach is contoured. Surprised much? So was I, but it is the truth. Your clothes will fit perfectly complimenting your flat stomach. And as they say, if you look good you in turn feel good which can lead to a happy and confident you.
5. Relief from hernia:
Ventral hernia happens when the abdominal muscles become weak and in a lot cases they can also develop as an aftermath of a caesarean section. This condition can also be dealt with while getting a tummy tuck.
6. Improves posture:
Good posture can make a significant improvement in your looks and your overall wellbeing. Due to weak abdominal muscles, our back becomes curved, in order to accommodate extra fat/weight. This in turn leads to back pain among a lot of people because of change in posture. But as a tummy tuck restores firmness and tone in the abdominal area, the problem of the lower back pain can also be dealt with.
