Benefits of Tummy Tuck
Some people have tried diet and exercise to improve their abdominal tone and to gain better posture, but in vain, and a more effective way to do it is through abdominoplasty or tummy tuck, which is a cosmetic surgery procedure that tightens weak muscles and removes loose skin and fat from your abdomen so that it has a flat and toned appearance.
This cosmetic procedure is ideal for women who have just given birth and find it difficult to restore their figure and for those who lost weight from workouts in a short period of time leaving some loose skin hanging from their bellies. Diet and exercise can no longer help the muscles go back to its normal condition once it has been over stretched for a period of time. But unless you think that it is simply for a cosmetic reason, there are other medical benefits that one can gain after the treatment.
Tummy tuck is one of the generally corrective “after pregnancy or aging” aids, in recovering from Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) or that bladder control problem associated with uncontrollable urine leakages after one coughs, sneezes, heavy lifting or exercise, and even when one laughs because it puts pressure or stresses the bladder. Women who have SUI but have not had C-section are treated without surgery, in most cases. Tummy tuck does not only tighten abdominal muscles and loose skin on the abdomen, but it can also help tighten the soft tissues supporting the pelvic floor, the bladder and urethra. The person who undergoes this procedure benefits from having the tissues kept closed, preventing bladder leakages.

Another medical benefit that one can gain after a tummy tuck treatment is correcting Ventral Hernia. This condition occurs when the intestines or abdominal tissues break through the abdominal wall and forms into a cavity or pouch when the abdominal walls are weakened. With tummy tuck this condition can be prevented from occurring again since the abdominal muscles are corrected and relieves pressure on the skin and the muscles are tightened so that the pouches are repaired and placed in its normal position.

It also takes several weeks to fully recover from the procedure.
