4 Benefits Of An Abdominoplasty
Omaha patients that have lost a lot of weight or undergone multiple pregnancies often have loose, hanging skin on their abdomen. No matter how much our patients exercise and no matter how much they deny themselves their favorite foods, this unsightly, excess skin can’t be eliminated. But there’s hope. One of the absolute best solutions for this type of loose skin is a procedure called an abdominoplasty. Omaha patient may recognize this procedure by its more common name–the “tummy tuck.” While a slimmer abdomen is the most obvious benefit to a tummy tuck, there are several other massive health benefits. In this blog post, we’ll look at 4 of those benefits. If you’re ready to finally get rid of the sagging, wrinkled skin that’s covering your tummy, just call Dr. Ayoub today at (402) 829-6384.
What is an Abdominoplasty?
Omaha men and women that have worked hard to lose a significant amount of weight are often left with layers of hanging, excess skin on their tummies. For moms that have gone through the marathon of pregnancy and birthing, their expanding tummies can leave them with stretch marks and, again, excess skin.
In these cases, no amount of exercise or dieting will do anything to remove that skin. The only thing that can help you regain your pre-pregnancy figure and a flat tummy is to actually remove the skin. This type of procedure is called a tummy tuck.
During a tummy tuck, Dr. Ayoub will make an incision just above the pubic area that spans between the hip bones. From there, he will remove the excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles using sutures.
4 Benefits of an Abdominoplasty
Omaha patients will not only get a tighter and flatter stomach after a tummy tuck, but they’ll also get several other remarkable benefits as well.
- Weight loss – Recent research has shown that patients who undergo a tummy tuck are more likely to keep the weight off.
- Better posture – Your stomach muscles play a huge role in your posture. During a tummy tuck procedure, Dr. Ayoub will use sutures to tighten the stomach muscles. Not only does this give you a flatter stomach, but it also helps with your posture as well.
- No more stretch marks – Another significant benefit to a tummy tuck is that it can often remove stretch marks since they’re often part of the skin that gets removed.
- Incontinence – Women that have vaginal deliveries can sometimes develop something called stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Women that suffer from SUI will sometimes empty their bladder when they sneeze or cough or even when they exercise.
