The Best Reasons to Get a Tummy Tuck This Year

It’s a Motivator

Getting a tummy tuck is a great idea if you’re looking for motivation to hit the gym. Many men and women who get tummy tucks state that the surgery gave them the push they needed to start exercising and working on their abdominal muscles. Moreover, although a tummy tuck isn’t a weight loss procedure (you’ll lose up to five pounds post-surgery), you will see a difference in size. The difference in appearance and reduction in droopy skin is likely to boost your commitment to working towards a healthier, better you.

It Improves Your Posture and Core

Tummy tuck surgery is highly recommended if you want to strengthen your core and improve your posture. Tummy tuck surgery removes excess adipose tissue (fat) from your core and tightens it. Once your core is tightened, it’s easier to stand and sit with your back straight. Standing and sitting with your back straight reduces the likelihood of developing a “hump back” and spinal problems.

It Helps With Stress Urinary Incontinence

If you are a mom who had a vaginal birth, then you may experience the occasional “leakage” or weak bladder whenever you sneeze, cough, or laugh. This is known as stress urinary incontinence (SUI). A tummy tuck reduces the symptoms of SUI.

It Prevents Vernal Hernias

A hernia is a mass of fat or intestines that protrudes through a hole in your abdominal wall. The part of the abdominal wall where the hernia pushes through is usually weakened by trauma, health-related conditions, or genetics. When you strengthen your abdominal muscles and tighten your core, you reduce the risk of developing a vernal hernia.

See a Tummy Tuck Expert

A tummy tuck is a serious surgery. You are at risk of developing blood clots, infection, or other complications. You can reduce the probability of having surgery-related complications by working with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in tummy tucks and has years of experience; Dr. Bershof is that plastic surgeon.
