A tummy tuck is a surgery that is designed to bring back the previous flat, and smooth abdominal structure before it was destroyed. It is done by eliminating excess abdominal fats, and sagging skin found within the abdominal area. Also known as Abdominoplasty, it can be performed via various techniques such as a mini tummy tuck, full tummy tuck, extended tummy tuck, and reverse tummy tuck surgery. A qualified candidate to undergo a tummy tuck surgery is one who has good health, doesn’t smoke, has lost a significant amount of weight within a short period of time, has realistic expectations, and suffers from post-pregnancy tummy stretching. You should also be willing to take the time and thoroughly plan for this treatment. But first things first, here are some of the top reasons for needing a tummy tuck.
1. To Get rid of the Excess Hanging Skin
There are several factors that can cause the abdominal skin to lose its elasticity making excess skin sag, or hang. Such reasons include pregnancy, regularly eating an unhealthy diet, continued alcohol consumption, and stress. In extreme scenarios, it becomes difficult to restore it back through normal exercising. This may cause such an individual to opt for a tummy tuck surgery which Dr. Rahul Vemula performs to the best of his knowledge and experience.
2. To Eliminate Excess Fats
Aside from a tummy tuck eliminating excess hanging skin, it also gets rid of too much abdominal fat. Previously during traditional tummy tuck, the surgeon would use a scalpel to remove these fats, however, today in similar cases, liposuction surgery is performed for much better and wonderful results. Liposuction leaves the blood and lymph vessels intact which reduces chances of excess bleeding, hence further complications.
3. To Erase Scars
An additional advantage of going through with a tummy tuck surgery is that you will be able to almost entirely erase all the scars in your abdominal area. Scars may have come due to pregnancy as stretch marks, appendectomy surgery, hernia surgery, or a cesarean surgery. Instead of struggling to hide these scars every time you plan to go out, have a tummy tuck surgery for a more permanent outcome.
4. To Reduce Back Pains
Back pains are experienced by both men and women. They come about due to heavy lifting that strains the back muscles, continuously bending, due to pregnancy, or after the loss of a significant amount of weight. Tummy tuck surgery can be a remedy to such back pains by tightening the abdominal muscles, and eliminating excess fats.
5. To Promote Upright Posture
Having too much abdominal fats and skin hinders appropriate upright posture. This is because they weaken abdominal muscles, causing severe pain when one tries to stand upright. Tummy tuck surgery can easily correct this error restoring a person’s upright posture.
6. To Build Self-Confidence
When you have scars that you constantly want to hide, too much underlying fats, and too much sagging skin, your self-confidence diminishes. Therefore, you end up avoiding pool parties with mini dress codes, avoiding crowds, not buying the latest fashions, and probably all the time alone. In simple terms, you become very insecure to stand out among others. A tummy tuck surgery would immensely help you restore your self-confidence back. You would be able to regain your flat tummy, and be able to get rid of all those scars.
7. To Improve Urinary Incontinence
Urinary incontinence is a condition where you have no control over the urinary bladder. This can be very embarrassing, especially among a crowd. It occurs when the urethra and bladder experience excessive pressure which can cause bladder leakage. Most of the time, this action is prompted by sudden laughter, sneezing, exercising, coughing, or shock. Beside the fact that this condition can be treated through non-surgical means, tummy tuck surgery could also be used.
8. To Repair a Hernia
A hernia generally involves a hole in the tissues. It occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in a tissue or muscle. Commonly seen to occur in the abdominal area, it requires treatment to be repaired. A tummy tuck surgery could be done to correct this defect.
9. To Look Sexier
We all want to look attractive, young, and sexy especially while wearing any kind of outfit. Tummy tuck surgery can help you achieve this look. If approached positively, the results could be even sweeter.
With the growing numbers in the population of people undergoing tummy tuck surgery, it is important to understand your own reason for wanting to undergo yours. Go into a tummy tuck surgery with a positive mindset for more beautiful results.
