More than anyone, people with stubborn fat know the abdomen area has impervious pockets of fat that are hard to get rid of with all kinds of diets and exercise. Advanced age, pregnancy, and severe weight loss can also leave behind a pooching stomach that takes the beauty off the clothes you wear, not to mention the excess skin that has developed. To address this issue, many people turn to us at Nuance Cosmetic Surgery in Folsom, CA for a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), and when all is said and done, the stomach area becomes firmer, the body contour is restored, and the abdominal muscles tighten. Below are just some of the most significant benefits you stand to receive after getting a tummy tuck.
Carrying around the burden of excess skin and fat that weaken the abdominal muscles could lead to a condition commonly known as a sway back. Most people even complain of back pain. Since the procedure gets rid of the excess mass and tightens the abdominal muscles, the unnecessary pressure is taken off the spine, and the patient can walk straighter. Back pain should also reduce or be alleviated entirely.
Increased Tolerance to Exercise
The majority of the patients who get tummy tucks already engage in different workouts. However, the excess weight from the saggy skin and weak abs make exercising somewhat difficult. A tummy tuck strengthens the abs and makes exercise more doable, reviving the patient’s love for walking, running and other aerobic activities.
Easier to Maintain Weight Loss
Research shows that bariatric patients who use surgery for weight loss and combine the operation with a tummy tuck are more likely to keep the weight off post-surgery.
Achieving Your Desired Body Contour
In the age of fashion and pop culture, it is desirable, more than ever, to have a flat abdomen. The internet and every form of media around us shows that a tiny waistline is one of the most desirable physical qualities. It is also a fact that clothes fit and look better when a person has a defined waist. Unfortunately, sagging skin and stubborn fat may be present. The good news is that a tummy tuck can be used to address this.
With all of these medical and social benefits, it is easy to see why many people opt for this incredible procedure. For professional services and advice, contact us today at Nuance Cosmetic Surgery in Folsom, CA, proudly serving the Sacramento, CA areas) to schedule your initial consultation.
