Reasons to Consider a Tummy Tuck
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) reported in 2014 that a tummy tuck, otherwise known as abdominoplasty, is the fourth most requested aesthetic surgery in the United States. This procedure flattens the abdomen and can be used in conjunction with liposuction to give a more lean, contoured appearance. If you’re not happy with your midsection, there are several reasons to consider a tummy tuck.
A Rise in Self-Confidence
Even if you’ve lost all the weight you wanted to, having loose skin hanging on your midsection can be disheartening. You may feel self-conscious at the beach or when you need to be fitted for a formal gown or a snappy new suit. Even a routine doctor’s visit may leave you feeling disfigured or anxious about your appearance. A tummy tuck will allow you to regain your confidence and feel pride in your body.
A Cessation of Skin Irritation
Excess skin can become irritated and, possibly, infected from constant moisture being trapped in the wrinkles and folds. Skin can also be irritated by clothing. If you are tired of heat rash, yeast infections or other skin problems due to excess skin, a tummy tuck will rid you of these issues once and for all. Once the skin is made flat again, moisture can evaporate away effortlessly and your clothing will not chafe.
Regardless of whether you are male or female, your clothes may not fit properly if you have a lot of excess skin. You may notice that your pants fit in the waist but are flapping against your seat and thighs. Women may notice their dresses do not lay properly across the abdomen, making them appear pregnant when they are not expecting. This can be really embarrassing and the constant tailoring can get pricey. By seeking a permanent solution, you will be better able to buy off-the-rack items and get a better fit each time.
An Improved Intimate Life
It doesn’t matter if you’re a swinging single or have been with your partner for 30 years, you likely want to look as attractive as possible for your lover in the bedroom. Excess skin removal via a tummy tuck can get you the taut, toned belly you want and give your sex life a boost. If you’re not feeling attractive, it may be time to consider surgery.
