ASAPS underlines the Medical Benefits of a Tummy Tuck
Tummy Tuck is undoubtedly among the most popular cosmetic procedures. The procedure focuses on removing fat and loose skin from the abdomen area. The great news, coming from ASAPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons), is that Tummy Tuck is also responsible for a few really important medical benefits. An article recently published on the blog of ASAPS, based on Tummy Tuck stats between the years 2000 and 2014 give some really interesting and encouraging details. Let’s have a quick look at them.
Better posture and improved abdominal tone
A Tummy Tuck has to potential to surgically tighten week abdominal muscles which are responsible for lordosis. So it’s quite common that Tummy Tuck can bring about better posture (due to the tightened muscles) and it may also relieve back pain.
Stress Urinary Incontinence Reduction
Stress Urinary Incontinnce (SUI) is a usual issue that takes place after a vaginal birth. What is SUI? An issue in bladder control that brings about urine leakage when sneezing, coughing or exercising. This SUI can be fixed without surgery but in more serious cases a soft tissue near the pelvic area is used to create a slight bladder obstruction, thus reducing SUI.
Fixing Abdominal Hernia
An abdominal hernia (a situation when intestines break through the abdominal muscles) is a common issue in cases where weak abdominal muscles are caused because of massive weight loss or pregnancy. A tummy tuck can fix the issue while it fixes the weakened muscles.
This is another good, convincing example of how cosmetic surgery can be proved quite useful (the medical way), apart from the cosmetic effect of the procedure.
