If you’re unhappy with excess skin or separated abdominal muscle tissue that don’t improve no matter how hard you work out, you might be thinking about getting a tummy tuck. This procedure can come along with a number of other benefits as well, which could explain why so many people get tummy tucks each year.
Banish Back Pain
Do you struggle with chronic lower back pain? Your ab muscles provide the support for your spine, but if they are weak or separated due to pregnancy or obesity, they are unable to adequately support your back.
By repairing your muscle tissue, a tummy tuck can have the added benefit of improving back pain and helping you get back to enjoying the activities you love doing. After your tummy tuck, keep up with regular exercise and healthy eating habits to reap the benefits long-term.
Say Goodbye to Stress Incontinence
Stress incontinence is a common problem for many women who have had children or experienced menopause. In many cases, a skilled cosmetic surgeon can help to relieve stress incontinence during your abdominoplasty procedure by creating a small tissue barrier to prevent embarrassing leaks.
Be sure to discuss your tummy tuck wish list with your cosmetic surgeon during your consultation.
Have Proper Posture
Strengthening your abdominal muscles and reducing back pain can also help you to improve your posture, which comes along with its own set of great health benefits, including less joint pain and better muscle alignment.
