Have you heard of abdominoplasty? Here are its 5 benefits.
The accumulation of fat or the lack of elasticity of the skin after significant weight changes or during pregnancy are two of the main reasons that cause our abdomen to become more flaccid. An abdominoplasty can correct this problem but it can also help to remove the stretch marks and the excess skin in the lower part of the abdomen.
But it is important to remember that an abdominoplasty is an operation and the recovery may take several weeks. In spite of all this, the cosmetic and medical benefits are great. Below, we will summarise the main benefits of abdominoplasty.
1. Enable you to maintain an appropriate weight
Patients who have an abdominoplasty are, generally, less likely to gain weight again and, if they are used to eating healthy, it will be easier for them to stay fit. Excess skin and fat in the lower part of the abdomen can complicate the practice of sport and, due to this, abdominoplasty enables exercise and, as a result, weight loss.
2. Improve your abdominal muscle tone
After giving birth, a lot of women suffer from distension of the abdominal wall due to the separation of the rectal abdominal muscles which store the embryo. This usually results in a loss of muscle tone known as rectal diastasis which causes a swelling of the mid-line of the abdomen when exerting oneself. This problem can be corrected thanks to abdominoplasty.
3. Improve your posture
Another benefit of abdominoplasty is that it helps to improve stomach posture and also relieves back pain that can be caused by a sagging abdomen.
Inaddition, diet and exercise are not enough to correct the abdomen in women who have lost a lot of weight or who have had various pregnancies and who are unable to make the extra volume that their muscles have gained disappear.
4. Hernias…in line
Abdominoplasty removes the risk of hernias in the umbilical area and the abdominal muscle becoming weakened as a result of weight loss. Similarly, it cosmetically corrects the remaining excess skin.
5. Results forever…if we follow small instructions regarding diet and physical exercise.
One of the great benefits of abdominoplasty is that it can last forever. Of course, to do so, all of the cosmetic surgeon’s recommendations must be followed and made into habits, such as exercise as well as healthy eating.
