What is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck is a procedure which involves tightening the muscles of your abdominal wall and removing loose skin from the stomach region so it appears toned and flat. Nearly 130,000 tummy tucks were performed last year, and for good reason. There are many benefits to having this procedure done.
There are several physical and psychological benefits of receiving an abdominoplasty. It can improve your quality of life by improving your self-confidence. Research suggests that people who are comfortable in their own skin are happier. Here are some physical benefits of the procedure as well.
For example, stomach muscles can distend after multiple pregnancies or extreme weight loss. This cannot be corrected by exercise and diet alone. By receiving a tummy tuck to strengthen your core muscles, including tightening the muscles supporting your spine, you will find you will not suffer from sway back, also known as lordosis. This can not only improve the tone of your abdominal muscles, but also relieve certain kinds of back pain and naturally improve your posture.
