Of all the procedures we perform at Bellava, tummy tuck surgery is one that our patients most commonly desire. Like many women and men in Westchester County, you may be longing for a flatter, more toned, and more defined midsection and a tummy tuck can help you achieve all of your goals.
What is a Tummy Tuck?
An abdominoplasty, more commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the abdomen by removing excess fat deposits and skin that has accumulated in the midsection. Additionally, abdominal connective tissues are tightened and the skin is shifted, which creates a tighter, more toned look.
Tummy Tuck Benefits
Improved abdominal appearance is the most obvious benefit of an abdominoplasty; however, the benefits of this procedure are more than just cosmetic. There are a number of medical benefits that a tummy tuck can offer, including:
- Stress Urinary Incontinence improvement. After giving birth vaginally, many women develop a condition known as Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), a condition that is marked by loss of bladder control. SUI occurs as a result of stress placed on the bladder, most commonly the following childbirth, and can cause uncontrollable urine leakage while sneezing, laughing, exercising, or coughing. It has been proven that a tummy tuck can effectively relieve SUI in women, as the procedure can place a slight obstruction on the bladder.
- Improved posture. Multiple pregnancies and significant weight loss distend the stomach muscles, which can lead to posture problems. By removing excess skin and tightening the muscles in the abdominal region, an abdominoplasty can restore posture, as the tightened abdominal muscles support the spine and the excess skin no longer pulls on the back muscles. Not only does improved posture enhance your physical appearance, but it can also alleviate back pain.
- Ventral hernia correction. Tummy tucks can also effectively correct ventral hernias. This type of hernia occurs when tissue pushes through the abdominal wall, usually as a result of weakened muscles in the abdominal region. By tightening the weakened muscles, an abdominoplasty corrects the hernia and alleviates bulging in the stomach.
Of course, in addition to these medical benefits, tummy tuck surgery can significantly enhance the look of your stomach by removing excess skin and creating tightened, toned abs. Because of all of the benefits this type of cosmetic surgery provides, our patients report feeling a significant improvement in their self-confidence and their overall well-being.
Who Should Consider an Abdominoplasty?
Many of the patients who request a tummy tuck at Bellava experience sagging or loose skin in their abdominal region as a result of:
- Significant weight loss
- Surgical procedures
We have also performed tummy tucks on patients for medical purposes to treat the conditions described above, including SUI, poor posture, back pain, and ventral hernias.
Whether sagging excess abdominal skin is making you feel self-conscious or you are suffering from pain or other medical conditions that a tummy tuck can correct, we strongly urge you to consider scheduling an appointment to learn more about this type of cosmetic surgery.
