If you have stretched skin and excess fat around the midsection that does not respond to diet or exercise, an abdominoplasty can give you a toned, leaner midsection. Dr. Kobienia can also tighten the abdominal skin and muscles for a tighter, fitter appearance.
Advantages of a tummy tuck include:
Increase Your Self-Confidence. One of the most important benefits of cosmetic surgery is the increased self-confidence patients can experience. A tummy tuck provides a toned, slim abdomen that diet and exercise alone cannot always achieve. Patients can feel confident about their bodies, wear the clothes they want, and feel good about showing off their midsection in swimwear.
Relieve Back Pain. Some women experience abdominal muscle separation after childbirth. The lower back attempts to compensate for weakened stomach muscles, resulting in back pain. The procedure can tighten the abdominal muscles and provide relief.
Improve Overall Health. Patients can experience an array of health benefits as a result of tightening their abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck can improve posture, treat urinary incontinence, and provide relief from ventral hernias. Meanwhile, studies suggest that abdominoplasty patients are more prone to maintain long-term weight loss after the operation.
