Tummy tuck surgery is also called abdominoplasty. The operation is performed to remove excess fat and skin from the stomach, and it also tightens weakened or separated muscles of the abdominal wall. It results in an abdominal profile that looks smoother and firmer. People who are self-conscious about dropping, loose skin around their abdomen should consider tummy tuck surgery in Orlando.
Today, everyone strives for a well-toned, flat tummy. Some have tried various remedies including exercise, dieting, and weight control but these methods may not work for everyone. Even some individuals with a proportionate and average body weight may develop a protruding abdomen or one that is sagging and loose. The primary causes of this are:
- Prior surgery
- Significant weight fluctuation
Individuals with sagging abdominal skin or fat due to the mentioned causes above can consider having tummy tuck surgery in Orlando if exercise and diet are not enough to refine their contours. The following are some benefits of using tummy tuck surgery to eliminate the stubborn fat cells and excess tissues:
Having an apron of extra skin together with weak abdominal muscles may result in a condition known as lordosis or sway back. It may also be accompanied by some back pain. A tummy tuck will tighten and strengthen your abdominal muscles, giving your spine support. Hence one can stand a little straighter. Any back pain that may have been associated with the previous condition will either be diminished or alleviated completely.
Ventral hernia correction
A ventral hernia may occur when abdominal tissue or intestine breaks through your abdominal wall, forming a sack or pocket. It can also be caused by surgeries like appendectomies or Caesarean section and abdominal weakness that is caused by massive weight loss. A weak abdominal wall will always enable a hernia to form no matter the cause, whether it’s weight or pregnancy. Your plastic surgeon can help this condition as you undergo the tummy tuck procedure since the underlying symptoms which involve ventral hernia correction are similar to those of abdominoplasty. Both processes will correct the weakened abdominal muscle and also the pressure on the skin.
Goodbye to stress urinary incontinence
Some women may develop Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) after they undergo vaginal birth. SUI is a bladder control problem where the bladder empties itself at unexpected times either by sneezing, exercising, coughing or laughing. Although this condition can be treated without surgery, it has been proven that a tummy tuck can aid in its recovery especially in those patients who have not had a C-section. During this procedure, the bladder is obstructed using soft tissue that is close to the pelvic area. In return, incontinence is reduced.
