There’s a surgical procedure that people in San Diego are having done to give them a tighter abdominal area. This is the celebrated tummy tuck. By joining them, you too can have the stomach you desire. Aside from an enhanced appearance, this surgery brings many other benefits.
After having a tummy tuck, it can be easier to maintain weight loss. This is often because the size of your abdomen has been reduced, which can make it easier for you not to eat as much because there isn’t as much room for your abdomen to expand as there was before. Many patients combine one of the many types of weight loss surgery with a tummy tuck as one of the side effects of losing a significant amount of weight is having loose skin on your body. This loose skin can then be removed during a tummy tuck along with tightening the muscles in the abdomen that tend to sag after losing weight.
When you have an excess amount of weight or skin that hangs from your abdomen, it can put pressure on your back and other areas of your body. One of the reasons people in San Diego are excited about the tummy tuck is that it can relieve pain while improving your posture. The surgery can help to eliminate sway back, which is a condition that gives you the appearance of having a back that is exceptionally curved. Once the abdomen is tightened, there’s more support from the muscles in this area of your body for your back so that it’s easier to stand straighter.
Another benefit of a tummy tuck is that it can help with stress urinary incontinence. This is a common issue that is usually seen among women. When the muscles of the bladder are weakened, then urine tends to leak from the bladder and urethra when physical activities are performed. During a tummy tuck, the muscles are usually strengthened with soft tissues, resulting in a decrease in the frequency of urinary incontinence. After tummy tuck surgery, you’ll usually be able to tolerate exercise a bit easier than before the procedure. This is because you won’t have an excess amount of skin hanging from your abdomen or excess muscles that can get in the way of easily moving around.
