Beyond the Trim . . . Abdominoplasty is lose-gain procedure

December 8, 2020

When we hear the words tummy tuck – or abdominoplasty – words like trimmer, flatter, leaner, reduced fat spring to mind. However, there are more benefits to abdominoplasty than meets the eye – we’re talking below surface deep. A trimmer tum can reduce back pain, aid stress urinary incontinence, improve posture and remedying hernias – amongst other things! So, for anyone considering tummy surgery in 2021 – now’s the time to hone in on the benefits beyond a sleeker self.

Pain reduced . . .

Back pain can be the result of weakened stomach muscles. So, when the tummy is trimmed of excess fat, those weakened muscles are also tightened, providing greater support to the abdominal region, thus reducing that pain!

Pressure reduced . . .

Hernia’s – or ventral hernia – form when your intestine / abdominal tissue breaks through your abdominal wall – resulting in a sack. Abdominoplasty can work to correct a hernia by tightening abdominal muscles, this means reduced pressure on the skin.

Posture restored . . .

When muscles are tightened in the abdominal region, and back pain alleviated, the spine is more supported and an improvement in posture is another great positive of this procedure.

Relief granted . . .

Urinary incontinence occurs when there is too much pressure on the bladder and urethra, and uncontrollable leakage can play out (especially when sneezing, coughing, laughing or exercising.) Certain studies have shown that abdominoplasty can help relieve that pressure.

If it’s time to turn the tables on your tummy this year – and its accompanying woes – ensure you reach out to a trusted, qualified hand to guide the best surgical way forward for you.
