Benefits of Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominoplasty)

Benefits of Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominoplasty)

By UPHI Hospital, February, 2 2019

Abdominoplasty or a tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery practice that tightens the muscles and removes loose skin and fat from the abdomen and makes it flat and toned. This procedure may help pregnant women to restore their figures after delivery; abdominoplasty is also useful for patients who have undergone extreme weight loss in a short period of time. The surgery may be performed in combination with other surgeries as well. Here are some medical benefits of the procedure:

Improves Abdominal Tone and Posture

After multiple pregnancies or excessive weight loss, stomach muscles may become distended and only diet and exercise cannot help. A tummy tuck surgically tightens weak muscles, while removing excess skin and fat, to flatten the tummy.

An abdominoplasty also gives patients an improved posture as tightened muscles support their spine. The improved support and better posture can aid in relieving certain types of back pain.

Reduces Stress Urinary Incontinence

After a vaginal birth, some women can develop Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), a bladder control problem linked with uncontrollable leakage while coughing, sneezing, exercising or laughing.

An abdominoplasty may aid in recovery especially for patients that have not had a caesarian section. In the procedure, a slight bladder obstruction is created using soft tissue near the pelvic area, thus reducing incontinence.

Ventral Hernia Correction

A ventral hernia happens when your intestine or abdominal tissue breaks through the abdominal wall and forms a sack or pocket. The possible causes may include abdominal weakness due to massive weight loss or surgeries like appendectomy or C-sections.

The basic symptoms that need a ventral hernia correction are quite similar to those for abdominoplasty. In both the surgeries, your weakened adnominal muscles and pressure on the skin are corrected. A weak abdominal wall always allows a hernia to form, and once you get a ventral hernia; there is the possibility of developing it again. Mostly, your surgeon will consider the benefits of adding an abdominoplasty procedure to the hernia repair to strengthen the abdominal wall and avoid future occurrences. Combining both the procedures is safe and it can reduce medical expenses and recovery time also.
