Many of us are familiar with the cosmetic benefits of tummy tuck surgery or abdominoplasty, but some medical pros may also make you say wow! A tummy tuck, medically known as abdominoplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure that flattens the abdomen by removing excess skin and fat and tightening abdominal muscles to give you a more toned abdominal profile. As far as tummy tuck results are concerned, it can be permanent with proper diet and exercise.

Dr. Karishma Kagodu, MS, M CH., Managing Director of Dr. Karishma Aesthetics, Bangalore, India, noted that tummy tuck surgery is an intense plastic surgery that highly requires remarkable aesthetic sense and surgical precision to meet the desired outcomes. Tummy tuck surgery has medically benefitted by improving the back posture, reducing lower back pain if the abdominal protrusion is very heavy, improves abdominal tone, repairs central umbilical hernia.

What medical concerns are addressed with tummy tuck surgery elaborated below:

1.    Tummy tuck reduces stress urinary incontinence: Stress urinary incontinence is characterized by uncontrolled leakage induced by sudden and forceful action, such as sneezing, laughing, and exercising. SUI is most common for women, especially after giving normal delivery. SUI can also affect men, and so it becomes a serious concern. Research has shown that a tummy tuck reduces the weight on the lower abdomen , thereby relieving some stress can help patients with stress urinary incontinence.

2.    Tummy tuck corrects ventral hernia: Ventral hernia is a condition that occurs when the intestine or intestinal fat protrudes through a weakness or opening in the abdominal wall muscles. Abdomen hernia can happen at the umbilicus (Umbilical hernia) most commonly or in the midline abdomen muscles (Ventral hernia) after multiple pregnancies. This requires medical attention because it causes an unusual midline protrusion followed by pain and discomfort. It is very common to get recommended for a tummy tuck surgery if a patient reports the issue. Tummy tuck surgery significantly reduces the chances of re-occurrence of ventral hernia, as an abdominoplasty strengthens abdominal muscles and repairs the muscles and hernia at the same time. It has the added advantage of dealing with excess lower abdomen skin and fat also.

3.    Tummy tuck decreases back pain: A study published in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery revealed the medical fact that tummy tuck helps reduce back pain. Because tummy tuck surgery restores the weakened core and strengthens abdominal muscles, resulting in much-needed abdominal support that helps alleviate the back pain.

4.    Tummy tuck improves posture: After a tummy tuck surgery, you will notice an improved posture due to the tightened abdominal muscles. Moreover, tummy tuck surgery helps offer more support to the spine, as the muscles in and around your abdomen get strengthened, resulting in improved posture.
