According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons 2017 statistic report, the tummy tuck made a major comeback last year. In 2016, tummy tucks dropped out of the top five most popular plastic surgeries; however, in 2017, the tummy tuck made its way back to the top five surgical procedures in 2016, have rebounded their way back into the top five with more than 2,000 tummy tuck procedures performed in 2017 than in 2016.
If youve been considering a tummy tuck for a while, you may just make up your mind after hearing some of the top benefits patients receive from the procedure.
Post-Weight Loss Correction
After dramatic weight loss, the skin is often overstretched due to the drastic expanding and contracting that happens over the course of gaining and losing large amounts of weight. The stress results in loose skin that can become cumbersome to deal with. With a tummy tuck, you can remove the excess skin and start enjoying your weight loss to the fullest. It can be hard to enjoy the new you when you are carrying around excess skin.
Post-Baby Body Makeover
After having children, a similar stress to weight loss and gain is put on the abdominal tissues and muscles during pregnancy. A tummy tuck is a great solution for excess skin and muscle laxity for patients searching for correction which is why a tummy tuck is frequently added to the popular Mommy Makeover procedure, a comprehensive solution to the physical effects of pregnancy and labor.
Anti-Aging for the Body
Just like the face, the body will begin to show signs of aging over time. As we age our body produces less collagen which is the substance that gives the skin firmness and elasticity. A tummy tuck will tighten and smooth out the abdominal wall for a more youthful and fit silhouette. Reducing excess skin allows you to fit into clothing with ease while feeling more confident.
