You’ve heard about the impressive cosmetic effects of a tummy tuck, but you may not be as familiar with the medical benefits. Yes, you read it right—there are actually a few health benefits to tummy tuck surgery.
Tummy tucks may help:
Improve urinary incontinence.
In addition to smoothing skin and reducing excess fat, tummy tucks also help to repair separated abdominal muscles, restoring strength and stability to muscles in the abdominal and pelvic region. Clinical studies indicate that tummy tucks can significantly improve symptoms of urinary incontinence.
Decrease back pain.
By repairing the abdominal muscles, tummy tucks can also help relieve lower back pain, according to research published in the Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. What’s more, your tightened and taught tummy can also help improve your posture.
Repair a hernia or prevent a recurrence.
Tummy tucks and hernia surgery are a winning combination. While Dr. Tanya A. Atagi slims and trims your belly, she can also repair and strengthen upper and lower abdominal muscles.
If you’re struggling to achieve a tighter, flatter stomach after pregnancy or dramatic weight loss, a tummy tuck may be a terrific option for you. To learn more, call 303.327.7300 or request a personal consultation today.
