How To Prepare For A Tummy Tuck Surgery

Tummy Tuck Surgery

Tummy Tuck surgery is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure designed to tighten abdominal muscles and remove excess skin and fat. As a result, it can significantly improve a person’s waistline and confidence. It is frequently requested as part of a “mommy makeover” or by individuals who have undergone dramatic weight loss, however, while most individuals are aware of its cosmetic benefits, many people do not realize that a tummy tuck also has numerous medical benefits, including the reduction of incontinence, improved posture, and the correction of ventral hernias.

Reduction Of Stress Urinary Incontinence

Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is a bladder control issue which affects many women after childbirth or as a result of aging. Everyday actions and activities such as coughing, sneezing, laughing and exercise can cause leakage of urine. Understandably, this is a source of embarrassment and frustration. Luckily, a tummy tuck can help reduce the effects of SUI as it reinforces abdominal muscles to push back bladder and abdominal contents. A slight obstruction created in the low abdomen, using soft tissue, can prevent bladder leakage.

Improved Posture & Abdominal Tone

As a result of multiple pregnancies or significant weight loss, abdominal muscles can become weakened and create the appearance of a bulge. Unfortunately, diet and exercise are not always effective in these circumstances because there is a vertical separation, however, a tummy tuck is designed to tighten weakened abdominal muscles, which helps to flatten the abdomen, improving its tone.

In addition, abdominoplasty helps to improve patients’ posture, as the tightened abdominal muscles work to support the spine, reducing lordosis, characterized by the inward curve of the spine. In addition to making you appear more confident and reducing the strain on your muscles, in many cases, improved posture helps to reduce back pain.

Correction of Ventral Hernia

A ventral hernia is a protuberance of tissues that pushes through weakened abdominal muscles, creating a visible bulge. In many cases, these hernias form at previous incision sites, so women who have undergone caesarean sections or appendectomies, for example, are more likely to develop these incisional hernias. However, ventral hernias can also be a result of significant weight loss.

Even after its removal, individuals are likely to develop another ventral hernia as weakened abdominal muscles make individuals more vulnerable to these unsightly bulges. However, abdominoplasty works to tighten stomach muscles, which strengthens the abdominal wall and greatly reduces the likelihood of future ventral hernias. Combining ventral hernia removal with a tummy tuck is an excellent way to save time and money and ensure that the problem does not reoccur.
