As per an article on www.medicalxpress.com/ Abdominoplasty is no more just a “mommy makeover.” It is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries nowadays. There is no doubt that tummy tucks produce a more desired body and result in a better physical appearance. But Abdominoplasty is beneficial not just for recent mothers but everyone. Today we talk about some of the medical benefits that can be achieved by undergoing the procedure.
One of the problems that arise from weak abdominal muscle is swayed back or as it is termed lordosis. Undergoing Abdominoplasty can help solve this issue because after the procedure there is a significant improvement in the posture of the patient. This happens because tightened muscles can support the spine better than before. A better support and posture can equate to lesser back pain in certain incidences. Another area where tummy tuck is especially beneficial is distended stomach muscles. Such muscles can occur when there is extreme weight loss in a person, or a woman has had multiple pregnancies. No exercise regime and amount of diet control can help in such cases. A surgical procedure, on the other hand, will flatten the stomach easily by removing the excess skin and tightening the muscles. A good carriage and posture and a toned abdominal profile are the results of a successful Abdominoplasty.
Women who have given vaginal births can develop Stress Urinary Incontinence. SUI is an issue with bladder control. There is uncontainable leakage from the bladder that may arise while exercising, coughing, laughing, sneezing, etc. Most cases of Stress Urinary Incontinence do not require surgery to be treated, but for some patients, a tummy tuck can assist in recovery immensely. This especially applies to females who haven’t had a C- Section. The incontinence is reduced by obstructing the bladder using a soft tissue during the surgery.
Abdominoplasty. A ventral hernia repair is another procedure that is often combined with Abdominoplasty to produce beneficial results. A hernia is a condition that occurs when any internal organ forms a pocket by escaping its surrounding tissue. A ventral hernia occurs when intestines or abdominal tissue push through a break in the abdominal wall. Once a ventral hernia occurs, it can repeat itself easily. A ventral hernia generally occurs after caesarean section, genetic weakness of abdominal wall, appendectomy, etc. A ventral hernia repair procedure can be performed alone. But surgeons tend to combine it with Abdominoplasty because a tummy tuck strengthens weakened muscles which can help prevent future occurrences of a hernia.
